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.

One kinda crappy thing I noticed about Yunnan Sourcing is that of my writing this they do not allow negative reviews of their tea to be posted on their site.

Ethically this sits uncomfortably with me...if I am going to take the time to write and post review of their product, I would like my voice to be heard.
