Shipping & Returns

We are delighted to offer our guests shipping services for our fine
loose leaf teas. This is another way we can connect with you, even from
a distance. We hope this shipping service will help you continue the
tea traditions you enjoy, providing needed pauses for rejuvenation, the
means of slowing down, and as a way to connect with family, friends,
and loved ones.
