Please find shipping information here. Please feel free to contact us for the specific shipping rate of your country. We will control the handling time within 1-2 days for pre-ordered green teas upon the arrival of all teas in each order. 


Prices of some pre-order teas and other green teas will be higher than last year due to rise of market prices. 

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.
