Import tariff

U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced a reclassification ruling in the August 24, 2016 edition of Customs Bulletin and Decisions that resulted in a decrease in the tariff applicable to flavored teas. The item had previously been classified under HTSUS subheading 2101.20.90 (8.5% duty), but CBP has ruled that they may be reclassified under HTSUS subheading 0902.10.10 and thus subject to a 6.4% duty. Canada, Germany, Mexico, and Singapore are the principal suppliers of this product. The final revocation and modification became effective for goods entered or withdrawn from warehouse for consumption on or after October 24, 2016.
