Frequently asked questions

How soon do I get access to trainings and classes start after I join the program?

Please allow up to 1 business day for access to all the teachings and trainings in our Universi-Tea™ portal. Access to this website is available to you 24/7 as long as you are currently enrolled.
You will also be added to the Sipping Streams Universi-Tea™ private Facebook group. We also do live trainings on Facebook, Youtube, and Zoom. You will be notified by email when those happen.

When does my tea ship?

Please allow up to 2 weeks for your first box to arrive. 3-4 weeks outside of the USA.
Subsequent boxes will ship every two months.

Can I get a refund?

There are no refunds. You will not be eligible for a refund for fees paid for any orders/programs that have already transacted, due to the fees and charges you agreed to when you submitted to your payment.

How much is shipping?

FREE - It's included

Do you have an accessories kit for those of us who may not have all the supplies that are needed to correctly brew the tea?

No, but we can make a recommendation to start with a box of slim filters from our website: https://sippingstreams.com/collections/tea-accessories
Each level you are given a recommended supply list and are given a 50% discount for any supplies on that list you want to purchase off of our website. You may only use each of those coupon codes one time.

What's included? How does the Universi-Tea™ Tea Specialist Certification Program work?

  • You receive one level at a time. This is a move at your own pace course. Each level is dripped out every 2 months as you pass them. So one level ever other month is as fast as you will have access even if you pass the first level in less than 2 months. You must pass each level and watch all the sessions in order to unlock the "Level Exam".
  • Each level you are given 8 teas and at least 4 videos covering the level. Most levels have handouts, but not all. The Tea Blending Session does not have a handout. It is completely hands-on.
  • When you pass all 6 levels, you will be awarded a final Certified Tea Specialist Certification.

How am I billed?

Once you join, Sipping Streams will immediately process your first payment fee. Auto-renewal will take place as the day of your first payment until all payments are made IF you are on a payment plan. Members grandfathered into that renewal rate until you cancel. There is no pausing or suspending memberships. And if you are given a special discounted rate for your membership, you are grandfather's into that rate until you cancel.
Any auto-renewing membership will be charged at the then-current Monthly or Annual membership rate, subject to terms of any corporate-approved promotional codes used, without further notice to you or authorization from you, until you cancel your membership. Those who purchased a membership, agreed to an initial and recurring membership fee at the then-current Membership rate subject to the terms of any corporate-approved promotional codes used, and you accept responsibility for all recurring charges prior to cancellation. You acknowledge that if you use a promotional code, the charges you incur are subject to these Purchase Terms and the terms of any promotional code you use. For example, if you use a promotional code for 10% off your first month, you will be charged at a rate 10% off the then-current rate for your first month, and your subsequent auto-recurring charges will be at the non-discounted then-current rate for any month up until the point you skip or cancel your Membership. "Then-current Membership Rate" is defined as the non-discounted Membership Rate at the time of purchase.

Can I pause or suspend my payments?

No, you cannot as stated above in the previous question. If you miss a payment, we will give you one month to pay for it. If you chose not to continue payment, you will need to start a new account in order to be in the program again. But when you chose to re-enroll, it will be at the new current price, not your previous price.
