Sales Tax

Why did I get charged sales tax?

Võrratu is responsible for charging sales tax, as applicable, per state laws and local tax laws or where Võrratu is otherwise obligated to do so. Sales tax can vary per order due to several factors.

Loose-leaf tea is tax free

You may have noticed that when you buy loose-leaf tea, the price you see is the same as the total that you see on your receipt. This isn’t a mistake, or done just because we think you’re awesome (you know we do, but that’s beside the point). It’s because tea falls into the tax-group of basic consumable products, which are zero-rated. And that means that all loose-leaf tea purchased is 100% tax-free!

Tax on pre-packs

Although bulk loose-leaf is tax-free, it’s important to note that this zero-rate doesn’t apply to the plant in all its forms. For instance, gift packs or single serve products are taxable. Simply put, any pre-packaged teas in bags (e.g. sachets) or prepared foods and beverages are taxable.
