No, as I actually just posted in another topic, tea for personal use is not subject to custom's charge.

good to know, I have never had anything withheld, but was just wondering if anyone in the US had.

Although I have to wonder if there is a USD limit for custom's free? It seems I heard someoner say 300 USD? (fortunately Japanese greens are actually and usually relatively cheap compared to Chinese counterparts. :mrgreen: )

I think this is also a reason the mark packages "small packets?"

I used to get shipments from Canada held (and charged extra) when they were over $200-ish (I forget the exact amount) -- I was ordering wire and metal (for jewelry and armor making).

Never had a tea order held or charged additional customs fee... even on a recent YS order that exceeded $300...

I'm very interested in checking out the Taiwanese teas reported as available on Yunnan Sourcing's US site, but I'm not able to access YunnanSourcing.us/store: it keeps coming up with a 'connection to the server was reset' error. I get the same problem in 4 web browsers on 2 devices. But down or not says the site is up.

Does anyone else have trouble getting to their US site? I know I've checked the site out a long time back, but I've only ordered from the original storefront and haven't been to the US site in a long time.

And it's letting me connect now. Very odd. Thanks for checking.
