Shipping and Delivery

Deliveries

We will deliver the goods to the address you specify for delivery in your order. It is important that this address is accurate. We cannot accept any liability for any loss or damage to the goods once they have been delivered to the stated address.

As all products are made to order, we will make every effort to dispatch orders received within 3 working days. Shipping courier services will normally be made by Royal Mail deliveries, although there may be occasions where we use an alternative courier and you should allow 3 -5 working days within England, Wales, Northern Ireland and mainland Scotland. It might take longer to deliver items to more remote areas. An additional 5 working days should be allowed for deliveries outside of the UK, but within continental Europe. During exceptionally busy periods (i.e. Christmas) this time may be slightly longer

We do ship worldwide, but if your country is not included then please let us know. Whilst we take all reasonable care to conform with a specific countries import rules, it is ultimately your responsibility to ensure that there are no import restriction on dry tea products. Although we anticipate shipping time should be 5-7 working days for delivery, for more distant locations from the UK,  it could be anywhere up to 14 days due to logistics within the receiving country, 

Delivery times are not guaranteed. If delivery is delayed due to any cause beyond our reasonable control, the delivery date will be extended by a reasonable period and we may contact you to advise of any such delays. Delivery Costs are outlined below:
