This year, we will be carrying most of our green teas through pre-order only. 

Why Pre-order?
To get the best combination of quality, price and timing!

  • In green tea business, storage and transportation contribute significantly to the price that you have to pay. With your pre-orders, we will order based on demands, hence eliminate the risk of overstocking and the extra cost of back-ordering. Therefore we can get high quality tea at the price of Chinese local market, and meantime, minimize international shipping cost.

  • With rising labor costs in China and dropping exchange rate of US dollar to Chinese Yuan, tea prices will inevitably rise. But with cost saving from pre-orders, most 2012 green tea will cost you less by pre-order than their costs in 2011 by regular orders. 



  • For all pre-orders:
    US domestic shipping: $5
    Shipping to Canada: $5
    Shipping to Europe: $10
    Please contact us for shipping cost of other countries or shipping rate of priority mails.
    Buyer could choose either to have each tea shipped at the earliest time, or combine shipping with a flat fee of one parcel's shipping charge.
