It's a shame, because the tea is great but I just can't afford to be spending so much on each order. It's like every item has a shipping charge, instead of adding shipping to the order as a whole...?
Wow! sounds like the shipping changes were the complete opposite of what people expected :(

If you're in NY, definitely visit Ippodo. It's a small spot (in the lobby of a Japanese restaurant) but the service is great. Not a fan of Japanese teas, but their stuff is definitely quality. It's close to Times Sq./Grand Central, so it's not a detour on most trips.

I ordered a lot from Ippodo but since they raised the shipping it really isn't affordable anymore. What a pity! :evil:

Was there the last time I visited NYC. Unfortunately they just closed for holidays the day before. :?

Saw the e-mail a couple weeks ago saying that their Spring Nodoka matcha is available.

Does anyone know how fresh the Sayaka from them would be at this time of year?
