We provide access to this site and sell products and services to you subject to the Terms and Conditions set out on this page, which are to be read in conjunction with shipping and returns. If you order goods after teanamu has published changes to this page or to shipping and returns, you will be bound by those changes. You should check prior to each order to ensure that you understand the precise Terms and Conditions applicable to your purchase. To assist you in determining whether the Terms and Conditions have changed since your most recent order teanamu will display the date when these Terms and Conditions were most recently updated.


Ordering on-line from teanamu could not be easier. Enjoy browsing the website, and click ‘buy now’ against the tea or teaware items you want. For workshops click on ‘book’, then pick your date and click ‘add to tea basket’. Once ‘my tea pickings’ are ready, click on ‘pay and brew tea’, which will guide you through a straightforward, convenient, on-line ordering system using the highly secure and safe PayPal system. PayPal helps protect your credit card information with industry-leading security and fraud prevention systems (when you use PayPal, even teanamu does not have access to your financial information).

Although we try to hold stock of all the items advertised for sale on our website we cannot guarantee availability 100% of the time: by simply acknowledging receipt of your order we are not creating a binding contract to supply what you have ordered, although of course we will use all reasonable endeavours to do so.
