About Shipping Weight

Explanation for the shipping weight of your order

Total Shipping Weight includes the contents, tare, gift box, shipping carton, etc.

※For example
the total shipping weight of your order might consist of 4 parts:
1. net weight of the ordered tea e.g. 160 g
2. weight of the bag or caddy e.g. 150 g
3. weight of further packing material e.g. 200 g (fancy box for special items)
4. weight of shipping carton e.g. 300 g ( this is the carton that will contain all your ordered items)

In the example given above the 160 g order of tea ends up with a 810 g actual shipping weight.
