Thoughts? (not on politics, but on impact on tea and shipping from China to US).

Interesting read. For sure increased USA ‘Terminal dues’ will increase international shipping costs. Our tea and teaware will be more expensive. I often wonder when I receive a package from Japan or Taiwan it only takes a couple of days to leave the country, but then packages get stuck in the west coast hub of San Francisco for 5 plus days, and then another 3 days slowly making its way to Santa Monica where I am. That’s with standard and economy shipping, no the case with EMS.
