Each gift certificate has a code that gives the recipient access to a tea questionnaire. Using their responses, the Novel Tea’s certified Tea Sommelier will create a custom blend based on the gift recipient’s preferences and tastes. Once the tea blend has been created, tested, and adjusted to perfection, the tea will be mailed directly to the recipient. The cost of shipping the tea to the recipient is included in the cost of the gift certificate.
There is a $3.66 shipping charged for paper gift certificates, as they are large certificates, in A7 envelopes, which are then shipped in small bubble mailers.
