We use Taiwan’s ultra-reliable postal service for all Imperial Formosan deliveries. Your tea will reach you within 12 to 14 working days of placing your order. However, please allow more time if you order during holidays, especially around the Chinese Lunar New Year period.

Shipping costs vary depending on where in the world you are and how much tea you purchase. The shipping costs are stated clearly at the point of purchase and we have a ‘no hidden costs, no nasty surprises policy’. If you have any questions regarding shipping do contact us – we will respond promptly.

Carbon Footprint

We only use recycled packaging to reduce our carbon footprint. We do not use any metal tins. Our teas are vacuum packed and shipped in boxes which carry our seal of quality and authenticity. We strive get your tea to you promptly, cost effectively, and with minimum environmental impact.


At Imperial Formosan we guarantee 100% satisfaction. If you are not satisfied with your tea for any reason contact us at and let us know how we can be of assistance.
