We want you to be happy with your purchase. If you are not completely satisfied, you can return the product to us and we will either repair / replace it, or credit your account, subject to the below terms.

This Policy applies to products bought from Supertea. This Policy forms part of the Supertea Terms and Conditions, and so words defined in the Terms and Conditions have the same meaning in this Policy, unless the context indicates otherwise. Nothing in this Policy is intended to limit your statutory rights in any way.

  1. Preparing your products for a return
    To ensure your request is processed as quickly as possible you are responsible for the following when returning your products;

    • package your products safely and securely for protection during transit; and
    • include all accessories and parts that were sold with the product.

    Failure to adhere to any of these requirements could delay the processing of your request or result in its decline altogether.

  2. Unwanted Products
    You can return an unwanted product to us, provided:

    • you arrange for the collection and delivery of the item using a courier of your choice
    • it is undamaged and unused, with the original labels and stickers still attached;
    • it is in the original packaging, which must be undamaged and in its original condition with all seals still intact (if applicable);
    • it is not missing any accessories or parts (if applicable); and
    • you log a return on the Website within 7 days of delivery to you or collection by you of the unwanted product. After 7 days, you can only return a product if it is defective.
  3. Not what you ordered?
    If we accidentally deliver the wrong product to you, or if the product is not as described on the Website, please notify us and we will collect the product from you at no charge. If the product is missing any accessories or parts, you will need to follow the process set out in paragraph 2 above. Once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will at your choice deliver the correct product to you as soon as possible (if the correct product is available); or credit your account with the purchase price of the product within 10 days of the return (or refund you if that is your preference).
  4. Products damaged on delivery
    Should a product be damaged or missing any parts or accessories at the time of delivery / collection, please notify us within 7 days of such delivery / collection by emailing us at support@supertea.co.za.
    We will arrange to collect the product from you at no charge. Once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will at your choice repair / replace the product as soon as possible (if such repair / replacement is possible) or credit your account with the purchase price of the product (or refund you if that is your preference).
  5. Defective products
    We do our best to ensure that the products we deliver to you are of a high quality and without defects.What is a defect? A defect is a material imperfection in the manufacture of a product or any characteristic of a product, which makes the product less acceptable than one would reasonably be entitled to expect in the circumstances. The following will NOT be regarded as defects and will not entitle you to a return under this section 3:

    • faults resulting from normal wear and tear;
    • damage arising from negligence, user abuse or incorrect usage of the product;
    • damage arising from or sea air corrosion;
    • damage arising from a failure to adequately care for the product;
    • damage arising from unauthorized alterations to the product; and
    • where the specifications of a product, although accurately described on the Website and generally fit for its intended purpose, do not suit you.
  6. Standard Warranty
    If you have received a product which turns out to be defective, please notify us as soon as reasonably possible after you become aware of the defect, but in any event within 6 months after delivery / collection of the product (except in the case of an extended supplier warranty, which is set out below).You can do so by logging a return by emailing us at support@supertea.co.za, and we will arrange to collect the product from you at no charge. Once we have inspected the product and validated your return, we will at your choice repair / replace the product (if such repair / replacement is possible) or credit your account with the purchase price of the product (or refund you if that is your preference). If the repair / replacement takes longer than 21 days, we will get in touch with you to see if you would rather receive a credit / refund. Where there is no extended supplier warranty period, unfortunately we cannot facilitate returns that fall outside of the 6 month period.
  7. Coupons
    There are two types of Coupons: a Coupon with a fixed amount of a discount, e.g. R100 off (“Fixed Coupon”), and a Coupon with a percentage discount, e.g. 10% off (“Percentage Coupon”). Where you have used a Fixed Coupon to pay for an order, and you or Supertea later cancels your order (or part thereof) prior to delivery of the relevant product(s), or you log a return of one or more products for a credit in accordance with the Returns Policy, the value of the Fixed Coupon will be deducted off the purchase price of the cancelled or returned product(s) (as applicable), and we will credit your account for the balance, if any (or refund you if that is your preference). We will also provide you with a replacement Fixed Coupon of the same value as the original Fixed Coupon used. Supertea may in its sole discretion impose restrictions on the use of the replacement Fixed Coupon. For any subsequent cancellations or returns arising out of the same order, we will credit your account as normal with the value of the returned product (or refund you if that is your preference).

    Where you have used a Percentage Coupon  to pay for an order, and you or Supertea later cancels your order (or part thereof) prior to delivery of the relevant product(s), or you log a return of one or more products for a credit in accordance with the Returns Policy, the value of the discount received using the Percentage Coupon will be deducted off the purchase price of the cancelled or returned product(s) (as applicable), and we will credit your account for the balance, if any (or refund you if that is your preference). We will also provide you with a replacement Fixed Coupon of the same value as the discount received using the original Percentage Coupon. Supertea may in its sole discretion impose restrictions on the use of the replacement Fixed Coupon. For any subsequent cancellations or returns arising out of the same order, we will credit your account as normal with the value of the returned product (or refund you if that is your preference).

    Wherever you have used a Voucher to purchase a product that you later return for a refund in accordance with the Policy, we cannot refund you in cash for that portion of the purchase price which you paid using the Voucher, but we will credit your account. Under no circumstances will donations be refunded.
