Shipping Information and Return Policy

Processing Time

Orders placed before 12:00 pm CST/CDT are processed and shipped the same business day. You can always expect superior processing and on-time delivery from your friends at Zhi.

Flat-rate Shipping

Zhi Tea Flat Rate shipping is $4.95 to anywhere in the US - via trackable, insured, Fedex Ground/Home Delivery or USPS Priority (occasional exceptions may apply). Shipping upgrades (Next Day, 2nd Day, 3-Day Supersaver) are calculated based on weight and distance.

Exceptions: Orders placed to Alaska, Hawaii, APO/FPO, and PO boxes must ship USPS Priority. In-state orders will Ship USPS Priority or Parcel Post with a one-day shipping guarantee.

Also, TEA CLUB Subscriptions have the shipping cost built into them. As all of these clubs are over $75.00, the system will show no shipping cost. However, we built a discounted shipping cost into the price of the clubs.

Tea Club shipments are available to continental U.S. recipients only due to shipping costs.


Free Shipping

Orders of $75 or more addressed to a physical location (sorry, no PO Boxes) within the contiguous United States qualify for free Ground shipping.

International Shipping

International shipments are also calculated on weight and distance and shipped via USPS International Priority.

Please note that deliveries can on rare occasions be delayed due to weather and other circumstances beyond our control. While we and our transportation partners will make every effort to deliver your order on time, delivery date selections cannot be 100% guaranteed. Zhi Tea currently has a 99.8% on time success rate!
