Make the most of Shipping!

Shipping via Japan Post and DHL is currently available to most countries however we would recommend wherever possible to use DHL to ensure delivery before the tour date. However if your tea has not arrived in time for the tour then please contact us via email.

Furthermore, as there is a 2KG allowance with DHL we want to be able to make the shipping fees as economical as possible. As such we have created the bundles below to add to cart to allow you to explore curated bundles of our teas.
