All official links I can find are in Spanish.

I’d like to take some tea bags to Mexico, is this allowed and do I have to declare them?

  • Could you give some indication to the amount of some? – CGCampbell May 18 '18 at 16:54
  • @Notts90 This is a list of permitted products consulmex.sre.gob.mx/boston/images/pdfs/products.pdf Tea isn’t specifically mentioned – Traveller May 18 '18 at 17:32
  • @CGCampbell a medium size pack from the supermarket, enough to last two weeks for a heavy tea drinker 🙂 – Notts90 May 18 '18 at 18:37

Anecdotal self-answer
We decided to bring the tea bags with us. Coincidentally we were selected for a bag search while going through customs and the customs officer wasn’t the least bit interested in the tea bags and let us through after little more than a cursory search.

As such it would seems it’s perfect acceptable and we’re glad we brought them as the tea here is Lipton.

  • That sounds like a good enough answer, esp as you were checked. When you can, go ahead and accept yourself (it's definitely allowed.) – CGCampbell May 23 '18 at 11:06
