For deliveries to Europe the shop will calculate the shipping costs based on the weight of the packed parcel. That is usually heavier than just the weight of the tea. The prices for this will be based on Royal Mail fixed overseas rates.

Important Note on Postage

Some items unfortunately are so bulky that they cannot be sent as e.g. a small parcel although their weight is that of a small parcel. In this cases we have given them a weight which will put them in the appropriate postage zone. However, with the new parcel measurements we are very happy that most of our items can be sent as a small parcel.. If you are unsure, please send us an email or phone free on 0800 228 9294.
