The products will be imported ready-to-drink in 1.8 fluid ounce glass bottles with screw-off caps.

The applicable subheading for the “eNZANADU Natural Drink, Berry Good Night” and the “eNZANADU Natural Drink, Good Morning Peach” will be 2202.90.9090, Harmonized Tariff Schedule of the United States (HTS), which provides for Waters, including mineral waters and aerated waters, containing added sugar or other sweetening matter or flavored, and other nonalcoholic beverages, not including fruit or vegetable juices of heading 2009: otherotherother.
