The length of time for the expiration date or "best used before" date depends on the type of product, as well as the brand.
Perishable items (such as flax oils or certain probiotics) generally have shorter expiration dates. Although our warehouse is fully air-conditioned, these more fragile items are put in cold storage (freezer or refrigeration unit) for maximum freshness.
Our receiving department does its best to verify and then enter the correct expiration dates for all incoming products. However, discrepancies do occur from time to time. This being said, the exceptionally high turnover at iHerb ensures that our inventory is among the freshest in the industry.
The Shipping Weight includes the product, protective packaging material and the actual shipping box. In addition, the Shipping Weight may be adjusted for the Dimensional Weight (e.g. length, width & height) of a package. It is important to note that certain types of products (e.g. glass containers, liquids, fragile, refrigerated or ice packed) will often require protective packaging material. As such, these products will reflect a higher Shipping Weight compared to the unprotected product.

Origin Yunnan, China
Yunnan 'South Cloud' is regarded as one of the areas for the Genesis of tea. The Southern part of this province is home to the Mekong and Lancang river basins, lush mountains and for the famous Puer category of teas. It is also the native home of the 'Dayeh', broad leaf tea varietal.
During third century BC, the central area of Yunnan, around present day Kunming (major city), was known as 'Dian.' Today, Yunnan black teas are often referred to as Dian Hong teas.
Yunnan black teas vary in their flavor and appearance. Some grades have more golden buds and a very sweet and gentle aroma without astringency. Others make a darker, brown brew that is bright, uplifting and smooth.
Tippy South Cloud
Made at a 100% organic tea garden with a mix of black and gold tipped leaves. The color emerges as a result of withering (moisture drying of the leaves), a critical step in processing of the leaves. Only a few areas in Yunnan contain these type of plants. Other areas known to have golden tipped varietals are Hunan and Fujian provinces in China and Assam in India.
Tippy South Cloud is special during late summer months. Since it is a heavy oxidized(darker) tea, it maintains its flavor well over the months.
Uplifting, smooth, full bodied texture with slightly smoky aroma.
Brew one level teaspoons of leaf in eight ounces pure, spring or filtered at 185F for four minutes. Can be re-infused two times.
100% organic black tea leaves.
