Shipping & Return Policy
After carefully analyzing increased shipping costs due to rising fuel prices, we are implementing a necessary change to our shipping policy. Unfortunately, we will no longer be offering free shipping on orders which meet a certain dollar value - all orders below $15 will ship with a $5 flat rate and any orders above $15 will carry a $3 Temporary Shipping Surcharge. Please note that our goal is to be able to remove this charge as soon as we can. Free shipping is still made available through our rewards program by redeeming your earned points for free shipping promotion codes. This change is scheduled for 07/11/2022. Please excuse any existing emails, or communications that still mention our free shipping policy as we update all our communications.
Please be assured that Tea India has made every effort to keep this change to a minimum. We value your business and thank you for your support of Tea India.
