Sales Tax

Why did I get charged sales tax?

The Republic of Tea is responsible for charging sales tax, as applicable, per state laws and local tax laws or where The Republic of Tea is otherwise obligated to do so. Sales tax can vary per order due to several factors.

How is sales tax calculated?

State and local sales tax, when applicable, will be charged on items purchased from The Republic of Tea that are shipped to a United States address. The amount of sales tax charged on any given order is based on a number of factors including, but not limited to:

  • - Type of item purchased
  • - Buyer's delivery address
  • - Seller's return address
  • - Shipping costs

Are there any additional taxes or duty for international shipments?

Additional taxes and duty may apply depending on the shipment's destination.

*Shipping charges are based on the delivered merchandise total to each shipping address. For example, if you place an order for yourself and for a friend, shipping charges will be calculated on each delivery.

*Priority shipping method delivers Tuesday-Saturday
