Hong Kong customers can expect Tea Shop shipments within 2-3 business days, and U.S. customers within 7-10 business days. Under SpeedPost, Hong Kong customers will receive Tea Shop shipments on the next business day, and U.S. customers within 2-5 business days.

Can I get samples before ordering?
We don't offer samples, but our teas are all of premium quality. If you're interested in trying out TeaCha without a long-term commitment, consider subscribing for a single month. You can then upgrade and extend your subscription at a later date to sample the best of each month throughout the year.
Where do TeaCha's teas come from?
All over the world. All teas in the TeaCha line are specially selected, revered teas of each major tea-producing nation. See our Tea Shop to learn more.

Simply log in to your account and follow the steps. Note: TeaCha Subscriptions cannot be upgraded and extended if the deadline has passed.
