Shipping + Returns


Due to individual country's customs policies, we only ship within Australia. 

If an order is placed by 1pm AEST, we are able to pack and ship the same day. 

It is the responsibility of the receiver to make sure all address details are correct. Absolute Tea will not be responsible for lost parcels. For all orders that require redelivery due to incorrect information an additional delivery fee will be charged. 

If you have selected bank deposit as your method of transfer, your order will not be shipped until payment has been processed into our account. 

All orders over $80 receive free shipping which is automatically added at checkout. 

For all orders under $80, shipping is charged as a flat rate Australia wide.



There are two shipping options for Australian residents:

- Parcel Post ($10.00) - Takes 4 - 8 business days for postage depending on your location plus processing time. 

- Express Post ($17.00) - Takes 2 - 4 business days for postage depending on your location plus processing time. 

Tracking is included and you will receive a unique code in the email that is sent out after your item has been posted. Australia Post can take 1 - 2 days longer to deliver at peak times throughout the year. Please also consider public holidays.  



If you are a Townsville resident, you may select local delivery which is now a free service! By selecting local delivery, you are ensuring that there is a secure place that your parcel can be left (i.e. mail box, etc). Absolute Tea are not at fault or to blame for any loss or theft of parcels left under your instruction. 

Please use the comments box of the order page to include where you would like us to leave your delivery. Once your parcel has been delivered, you will be notified via text message.
