    Re: Hi everyone does anyone know where is Don of WLT?

    I consume approx 50 gr of snus/day (50 gr snus is 50% water and 50% tobaccoflour)
    That will be 1,5 kg snus or 750 gr tobaccoflour per month , 5 kg will last about 6.5 months + 1 deluxestogie corona a day + 5 bowls of pipetobacco a day , hmmmmmmm maybe i should reduce my consumtion a bit

    Wow that is a lot of snus, how long do you keep it in for?

    Of course if I was in Sweden I'd probably run through that much just sampling all the different types you have out there, like a kid in a candy store.

    I just read zig and Bobs pist I find Larry's to be really good. I am in a low humidity climate so storing in the bag Big sent is fine. I love the yellow . Again mixing it 50 50 with Dons lemon is really good. I think for storing tobacco outside humidity is what accounts for mold

    Just ordered one pound to NZ. WLT seem like the best place to buy.

    If this gets through will test 5 pounds.

    Thanks for all the information in this thread guys! Really helps me out and I am quite pleased I ordered from WLT.

    Re: Hi everyone does anyone know where is Don of WLT?

    It will definitely 'get through'. Similarly, 5 pounds will also definitely get through. You can get away (without any duty) with individual consignments of up to 10 lbs.
    However, with any package you have to be prepared for a bit of a circus if Customs decides to 'heat treat' it. It would appear that they just do this randomly.
    If this happens (and it's about 50/50 whether it does or not), you will pay an extra $45 and, beyond your control, they change the colour and texture of your consignment.
    One final thing; the Law is touted to change early next year - so, get it while you can.

    OK so my order is in NZ. Currently being 'Held for Clearance' by customs.

    Does that mean I will have to pay for the heat treatment? Only ordered one pound!

    If it is released for delivery you will be lucky. Otherwise you will get a letter in a week or two and a bill for $45. They will not treat it until it is paid for.
    When you are dead, you do not know that you are dead. All the pain is felt by others.
    The same thing happens when you are stupid!

    I agree.
    Once the tracker states that it is 'Held for Clearance', it will indeed not be coming directly to your door. The magic words you'd want to see are, 'Released for delivery' and/or 'In transit to local depot'.
    Because you are required to pay a flat $45 treatment fee, whether it's 500g (in your case) or (up to) 25kg, you will appreciate that it just doesn't make sense to continue to buy it one pound at a time.
    My last order (of six pounds) got 'lost' for a month.
    On the tracker it indicated that it was 'Held for Clearance' but no letter from 'QTC' (the testing outfit) appeared. After phoning Customs, MPI and QTC and having them each tell me they had no trace of it, I lastly rang NZ Post who opened a 'Case' - to find the missing parcel.
    And, in a matter of just a few hours the tracker showed that it was 'In transit to local depot'. It was delivered two days later, opened but UNTREATED.
