Returns – General:

We want you to be happy with your order. If you have a question about something you received or if something is not right, please let us know within 5 days of the receipt of your order so that we may work with you to resolve the situation.

If a mistake was made by you when the order was placed, we will do our utmost to accommodate your requested correction, but we cannot refund the costs of shipping your package to you and the item must be returned to us at your expense.

If your merchandise was sent to you with Free Shipping the amount refunded to you will be for the cost of the merchandise minus the shipping costs to ship the replacement item to you.

If the mistake was ours, we will correct the problem and adjust any shipping charges in an appropriate manner.
Please email us with any concerns or questions that you might have so that we may work with you personally.

Returns – Tea:

Regretfully, we cannot take returns on tea that is ordered by mistake or that one simply does not like. We understand that not every tea drinker is going to like every tea. While it may seem easy to simply return a bag of tea that one does not like, a returned bag of tea becomes a throw-it-away item for us because we will not re-sell it. So, because of this, we ask that customers order small quantities of tea that they are unfamiliar with before placing an order for a large quantity.
Similarly, Hei cha bricks, Pu-erh beeng cha, tuo cha, and other compressed teas are not returnable / exchangeable for any reason.

Returns – Teawares:

Please inform us right away if you would like to return an item. If, despite our best efforts to photograph and describe a certain teapot, cup or other tea preparation item, the item is simply just not right, you may return the item to us with the following conditions:

  • The item and any separate parts must be in perfect, unused condition and carefully re-wrapped in the original packing.
  • All original boxes, outer wrapping, tags, stickers, etc. must be present and in the same condition that they were when received.
  • We cannot take returns of items that no longer have their original boxes or that have soiled or damaged boxes.
  • A re-stocking fee of 10% of the retail price of the item will be deducted from the credit.

The customer is responsible for paying the return shipping (with sufficient insurance) to Tea Trekker.

Special orders and discounted items are not returnable.

Damaged Items:

If an item in your package arrives damaged, please send us a message (using the Contact Form on the Contact Us page or the link at the bottom of this page) and let us know which item was damaged. Please include your name and order number in the message. Also, please keep the box your order was shipped in.  On occasion USPS will ask to see the shipping box when a damage claim is filed.
