Payment and Shipping — You choose it, we send it…

Payment — Handing over the dosh

Payment is by Pin Payments, an Australian company, or PayPal, a USA based company owned by eBay. They work well, and give all sorts of earnest promises that your money and financial details will be safe in their capable hands… got to trust a crowd that uses words like ‘encryption’. If you have an ‘issue’ with Pin Payments or PayPal we can come to some other arrangement e.g. cheque, credit card over the phone with a live person, internet banking or some particularly nice jewellery. We must receive payment in full before any Mim Beim product can be sent to you.

Delivery — From us to you

After your order is received, it is sent immediately to our state-of-the-art packing warehouse where a bevy of extraordinarily efficient herbal tisane packers pack your order quick smart. Every attempt is made to send your goods on the same or next day of order… so if you don’t receive it within a few days please let us know. Unfortunately, every now and then, one or more of the team of ‘extraordinarily efficient herbal tisane packers’ suffers a bad hair day, and delivery can be delayed.

We utilise Her Majesty’s Postal Service (Antipodes division), and favour those red Australia Post sachets. In our experience, they seem to be at least as reliable as pigeons, and they don’t poo. If you don’t receive your parcel within 7 working days PLEASE let us know and we will attempt to track it down through snow, sleet and hail, even in summer.

Out of stock/refunds

Herbs being what they are (fickle folk of nature) sometimes we might be out of stock of a particular blend. In this case we will contact you and ask whether you are happy to wait until the herbs have been harvested, if you would like to choose an alternative blend, or whether you would like a refund.

Unfortunately, due to the nature of the produce, we cannot offer a refund if you change your mind. But if you are unhappy with the product for whatever reason, please, please let us know so we can sort out something. We must be notified (by phone or email) of any damaged or faulty stuff within 5 days of receipt of said stuff. Goods returned without authorisation will not be accepted.

Other Bits

The herbs used in Mim Beim herbal tisanes are organic and Australian grown where possible. On average each tisane contains around 80% organically grown herbs. Depending on where, and the conditions of the season under which they are grown, each harvest may look and taste a little different. Although we try for perfection (!), the different batches of BWH herbal tisanes may have a slightly different taste due to these circumstances.
