We use both USPS and UPS for most of our standard ground shipping, including our Free Shipping* for Spice and Tea orders $50 and over. We reserve the right to change and use additional shippers as necessary, as well as modify our policy without notice. For international orders we use a variety of services depending on the country and their regulations.

Restrictions might apply for weekends and holidays. If you have any questions or are looking for special handling, please check with us first.
For international orders to Canada, and the UK, we use the most cost-effective carrier available to us. International Shipping Cost is not shown in the Shopping Cart since we must see the order before we can quote the shipping due to weight, size of package, the country we are shipping to and the carrier used. That is why your order might not process. If you are in Canada or the UK, we will gladly quote the shipping cost for your and then manually process your order if you agree to the cost. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause but as a small business, our International orders are minimal at this time so we do do have automatic International Shipping Rates built into our website.
For other countries outside Canada and the UK, please check with us first for shipping availability and costs, as your order will not process. We do not have International Shipping Rates posted since there are so many restrictions. We are not even able to ship to many countries. If you have are any questions about shipping costs or restrictions, please check with us first and we will gladly quote the rates for you, if we are able to ship to your country.
Shipping rates and policies are subject to change without notice as they can change to us also without notice. Shipping rates do not apply to commercial accounts.
Commercial Account Shipping
For Commercial Accounts and larger Spice & Tea quantities, we reserve the right to charge additional shipping rates.
