The validation of the order by the Customer signifies acceptance of the terms and conditions.

Once the order is validated and paid for, the Customer receives an order confirmation by email.

Shipping costs are calculated at the end of the order, according to the destination country, weight, volume and rates of the carrier in charge of delivery. Without exception, they are charged to the Customer. The Customer is responsible for ensuring that the products ordered can be imported into the country of destination, and bears applicable taxes and other fees.

Products will be sent from Switzerland to the delivery address indicated by the Customer during the order process. Products are shipped within ten days of receipt of payment by the Seller.


3.7. Warranty


With the exception of tea and other consumable or perishable products delivered in a sealed package and of any other item delivered in a sealed package for hygiene reasons, for which any guarantee is expressly excluded, the Customer benefits from a two-year warranty from the delivery for defects that are not caused by abuse, moisture, wear, or any other cause for which the Customer is responsible.

From the date of receipt of the product, the Customer has a period of 14 days to inform the Seller clearly and unambiguously that he or she asserts his or her right of withdrawal and wants to return the delivered product, at the expense and risk of the Customer. Only products purchased through the e-Commerce site Fresh Tea Stories, and returned unopened and in their original packaging may be recoverable.
