100% Unconditional Guarantee of Freshness and Satisfaction
The flavorings we use to flavor your teas are all natural and 100% organic. We hand-blend each order as we receive them to ensure freshness. If for any reason you are not completely satisfied with your product, please contact us and we will gladly figure out a way to make it right.
Orders placed on Designatea.com are usually blended and shipped within 3-5 business days from the time the order is received. Each order is shipped through the United States Postal Service and will be delivered in a padded mailer or small box depending on the size of your order.
Canadian orders: We love doing business with our friends to the North. We hate to do it -but with the 2013 substantial increase from the USPS- we have to raise the base shipping rate to a standard $9.25 per order under 16 ounces. If order is over 16 ounces a 35% surcharge will be added to the base shipping costs after order is placed.
International Orders: Give us a shout first for a shipping estimate. Please contact us for rush delivery.

Ethical Tea Partnership And the Environment
Design a Tea wants to believe that the working conditons, wages and benefits are fair and equitable for the growers of our teas. So we strive to deal with buyers and importers that feel the same way we do. The ETP Certification is what our supplier of fine teas has commited to: Ethical Tea Partnership is similar to the Fair Trade organizaton, but has a much broader scope for tea consumers since its focus is on TEA ONLY. Because tea is not a publicly traded commodity like coffee, Fair Trade is unable to penetrate many of the nuances and regional peculiarites of the tea trade.
Where the ETP also differs from Fair Trade is primary focus. Fair Trade's focus is mainly on economics. The ETP is a socially and environmentally directed organizaton.
