1.7 Certain remote areas may be subject to additional shipping charges. If these charges are not applied at the time of placing your order, this will be discussed with you before your order being dispatched.
1.8 Our shipping providers may not be able to deliver to certain countries at times for reasons of politics, government, natural disaster or operational crises. In such circumstances, your shipment will be returned to our mail centre and held till such a time that they can deliver to you.
1.9 When ordering goods from our site for delivery overseas you may be subject to additional import duties and taxes, which are levied once the package reaches the specified destination. Any additional charges for customs clearance must be borne by you and we have no control over these charges and cannot predict what they may be.
2.0 Standard Untracked Delivery
2.1 Orders shipped with our Standard Untracked Delivery service are NOT tracked. You should allow 21 working days from the date of dispatch for delivery – however in the majority of cases parcels do arrive well within this timeframe. Please Note – postal services are experiencing delays due to the ongoing Covid-19 crisis. Following non-receipt of your order after the 30 working days, we will offer for the order to be resent or refunded.
2.2 We aim to process and dispatch your order within 2 working days (Monday to Friday excl. Bank Holidays). At certain times this may not be possible. You will receive a shipping confirmation once your order has been dispatched.
2.3 There is a 2kg weight limit for Standard Untracked Deliveries. Orders exceeding this limit will not be offered Standard Untracked Delivery at checkout and should reduce or split the order for standard post or choose our Express Tracked Delivery option.

4.0 Shipping Changes to the UK
Because the UK has now left the European Union, it is considered a third country for customs and VAT purposes. Like Ireland, tea is considered a zero-rated product for VAT in the UK. However, we encourage our UK customers to familiarise themselves with local VAT and Import regulations before making a purchase. All reasonable endeavours have been made to provide full transparency on the costs UK customers will incur, but we cannot predict any additional charges at the point of delivery.
