Yonas: Hello all Can anyone help me get a detailed export from China procedures and costs expected?? Thanks

rhinion: my name is Rhiannon and I live in China, and I am trying to export tea, via epacket - eExpress and possibly larger containers to America - NZ, Australia, Europe. I found you through a quick google search, and I am emailing inquire about whether you know the customs processes involved and licenses required for exporting tea from China. In an effort to understand an environment that I know very little about. Any information you can provide at all would be much appreciated. Or if you can steer me in the right direction to someone you may know I would be very grateful.
