Christmas / New Year Shutdown
We close at Christmas time for around two or three weeks (this year, we are closed from 25 Dec 2017 and reopen 16 Jan 2018 – but mail orders and pickup orders are possible – please contact us to arrange).
Gift wrapping is available for an order free of charge (although this does not include the individual items). Please just let us know the details (including any message) in the Comments section at Checkout. If we are sending the gift directly to the recipient, we will not not include any price information with the order.

When we receive your order, we’ll inform you if anything is out of stock, what your payment options are, and when your order is likely to be shipped. Give us a call or send us an email and place your order today!
For customers outside New Zealand, please contact us and we will advise whether we are able to process your order. Importation restrictions in certain countries may mean that some teas will be denied entry. This is particularly applicable to Australians; we do not recommend ordering any teas with citrus peels or seeds into Australia.
