Attention: Our Privacy Policy has changed. On April 11, 2018 we updated our Privacy Policy. If you keep using the Tea Forté website after this date, you're letting us know that you're okay with the updates.

What's changing? We’re adding more detail about how we may ask third parties to collect non-personally identifying information via the use of “cookie” technology, and how that information may be used.

What if I don’t agree with the changes? If you are not comfortable with the changes, you should not use or browse our website. But before you do that, please get in touch with us so we can answer any questions you have. You can reach us at
