Signing up for a tea subscription box is a great way to treat yourself to a fun surprise each month. Some people sign up for boxes to get a “good deal”, they want a lot more than their money’s worth. Other people just enjoy the fun of having a curated selection of new products showing up at their door each month, and would even be willing to pay a premium for such a service. Sometimes, there’s a sub box that manages to hit both notes, like Tea Box Express.
We received the August box in the mail, and there were a few items in here that we haven’t tried before, along with some favorites (A big selection of some delicious and beautiful flowering teas.) That’s really what most people are looking for in a box. You want a few things that you’re already used to buying and that you’ll absolutely enjoy, and a few new things to try, too. We can’t speak to their past or future boxes, but August was a huge hit!
Here’s a more in-depth breakdown of everything…
Cardamom & Cinnamon Green Tea Mints by Sencha Naturals: These had a unique taste, it took a while to grow on me, mainly because I’m not usually a fan of stronger cinnamon tastes. After a bit of getting used to it, I warmed up to the flavors a bit more. Not my favorite, but I can appreciate it none the less. This is a good example of being able to try something new in a box that I normally wouldn’t select.
Pink Dragon Fruit Green Tea Mints by Sencha Naturals: These were my jam! Not going to lie, they may not have lasted more than two days.
Snickerdoodle by WOW Baking: Never tried a snickerdoodle before, but this was just delicious. This wheat and gluten free cookie tasted incredible, amazing texture. But why wouldn’t it taste great when the main ingredients are rice flour made with tapioca, sugar, and butter? I don’t try to avoid gluten, but if the label didn’t say that it was missing – you’d never know.
Lychee Blooming Teas by Chai Diaries: They spoiled us with 6 lychee blooming teas, we will be showcasing these in an upcoming video so keep an eye out!
Pu’er Blooming Teas: This is a very cool package with three pu’er teas inside that we can’t wait to try, by Misty Peak. These will also be featured in an upcoming video.
This month’s box had a great selection. From sweet and tasty treats like the two packages of mints and the cookie, to a very nice curated selection of teas. The treats were fantastic, but at the end of the day it’s all about the tea.
We’re looking forward to seeing what’s in store in upcoming Tea Box Express subscription boxes, and if you are too, you can sign up using the code TEAHAPPY to save 20% on your first order.
If you’re wondering about value, the boxes go for $25/mo (Or less with a longer commitment), and off the top of my head I’m guessing this one contained about $30-$35 worth of products. So, this is the type of box where you get more than your money’s worth, and so far it’s been a good selection of new things to try, along with familiar favorites.
We highly recommend trying out Tea Box Express.
