    CHOCOLATE ALERT!

    We all love chocolate! We love giving and receiving chocolate gifts. Unfortunately, shipping gifts with chocolate between April and October is risky. We cannot ensure the safe arrival of chocolate during this time regardless of how it is shipped. It is done at your own risk. 

    Should you still desire to ship a gift with chocolate between April and October, we recommend selecting Express Mail. We will (but do not recommend) shipping via Priority Mail.

    RETURN POLICY

    We thank you for trusting us to make your gift giving experience a satisfactory one. Please double check the name and address information you give us at the time you place your order. We have found the number one error is a mismatch between the address and zip code. 

    On rare occasions, errors happen. A gift arrives damaged or another unfortunate situation develops. Please know we are deeply sorry should this occur. We  do our best to prevent all manner of mishaps from happening in the first place.

    Should you not be 100% satisfied with your gift giving experience please let us know within 2 business days of the gift being received. This can be done by phone to 408 888 2781 or toll free 1-877-449-9832 by e-mail to contact@tealovergiftbaskets.com.  Tea Lover Gift Baskets will make every effort to resolve any issue in a timely manner and to your satisfaction. Damaged gifts or late deliveries will need to be verified by the carrier. If  the gift is disposed of before we can verify the damages/discrepancy we can not issue a refund.

    Should the carrier return the gift to us because it was refused, or because we were given the wrong address, or the recipient was not available to receive the gift; any refund made will be minus the return shipping charge.

    SUBSTITUTION POLICY


    We strive to ship out your tea gift basket precisely how it is advertised and photographed, with the same products, teas and embellishments. We succeed in this most of the time.

     

    Over time we have found even the most diligent manufacturers stop making products or change their product in some way: size, color, quality, taste. Then, of course, there are natural disasters, political and ecological issues that influence product availability. Consequently, we find we can no longer offer the same tea gift basket designs or some of the products we use in a current tea gift basket design.

     

    If a design change is significant, we create a completely new tea gift basket design, take new photos and write a new description. If the change to a design is small, like the brand of tea cookie, we will list the change in the item description and not necessarily change the art work. Please note: we do this rarely. Most of the time the tea gift basket you see in the photo, the gift description and what your tea drinker receives are identical.

     

    Rest assured, that should a certain product become unavailable, we will always substitute it with something similar with the same or greater value.

     

    Thank you!
