Since 2006, we have been selling a hand-picked and unique range of premium teas and accessories at the House of Tea. The store is run by two enthusiasts David Obucina and Eva Strnadova. To a large extent, we import our products directly from the country of origin and thus have more control over the quality.
We sell our teas to a number of EU countries in Europe and some countries outside the EU. If you would like to shop with us but do not find your country in the list of countries when creating account please send us an email.
EU countries pay Swedish VAT. It is duty free within the EU. Companies that are registered in a EU country other than Sweden and submit their VAT registration number to us when ordering do not pay Swedish VAT. We will manually remove the VAT from your order.
Iceland, Greenland, Switzerland and Norway are not in the EU, but are welcome to shop with us. Customers from non-EU countries do not pay Swedish VAT and pay VAT and customs according to their own regulations. Nor do customers from Åland pay Swedish VAT even though Åland is a member of the EU. The freight is calculated according to a shipping table based on weight and can be seen on the shopping cart page when country is selected and has been updated with the update button or when a customer account has been created.
Freight to Norway is calculated according to a weight table. You see the cost in the shopping cart when you select country and press Update or when you create a customer account with Norway as your shipping address. Prices will then be shown without VAT, as Norway is not a member of the EU. Norwegian customers do not pay Swedish VAT.NOTE! New rules in 2020, NOK 350 rule removed. No duty and VAT is paid for orders from us to Norway. Norway imposes VAT 15% and a declaration fee from Postnord of 299 NOK. This delays deliveries to Norway.
