The price of imported goods change frequently and we do our best to keep our website prices updated and current. Prices are subject to change without notice. If the current price of an item is more than 10% higher than what is stated on our website, we will contact you before shipping the product.


In Stock/Out of Stock Items:

We make every attempt to have the items on our website in stock at all times and updated in our inventory. But sometimes, due to reasons out of our control, there will be times when an item will not be in stock.


Limited Production:

Sometimes, we may be out of some of our teas for a period of time because, for some of the higher grades of green tea, there’s only a limited amount of teas produced every season. As for the tea ware, sometimes the artist simply stops making them.


Delayed Shipments:

All of our products are imported from Korea. If an item that is ordered is out-of-stock and is not expected to arrive within one (1) month of the order date, we will contact you immediately to discuss further action.  If the item that is out-of-stock is expected to arrive within one (1) month, we will put it on backorder and keep you updated by email.

All taxable items sent to California addresses will be charged the current California sales tax.

Taxable items in California are non-food items, such as pottery, teapots, tea containers, accessories, etc. Food items (tea) will not be taxed. Taxes that appear on your online orders are approximate. The actual taxes charged to your credit card will reflect the applicable state and local sales taxes, and will be calculated when your order is shipped. Orders shipped to CA will have all applicable local and state sales taxes added to your total, and to your shipping charges where appropriate.
