Tea Box Express is a monthly subscription that sends you a high quality tea plus accessories and treats. This review is for the September 2015 box with an “Apple Harvest” theme. Since Fall is my favorite teatime of the year, I’ve settled down in front of my computer, writing this up while enjoying the tea that arrived.
What You Get: Each box contains quality brand-name loose leaf tea and three or four fun “tea-things” to enjoy with your tea.
I wasn’t too sure about this at first but o.m.g. Crazy yummy! How come this isn’t a thing? It’s got spiced apple cider syrup drizzled all over it and there are apple and walnut pieces mixed in with the popcorn. Perfect snack? Yes.
Only three! It’s a tragedy! These caramels are my favorite “squishy but not too squishy” texture and they taste wonderful. They’re pretty big pieces but they’re not going to last long. 😀
Buttery shortbread cookie infused with rich caramel and sprinkled with sea salt. Oo. Ooooo. Yeah, I’m glad there are only 3 because if there were more I would eat those, too. I love the crystallized, crunchy coating on the top and the shortbread is perfection!
VERDICT: As a tea-lover, I think is a LOT of fun. I loved getting a new tea and finding a new tea brand to love. I think the snacks and accessory included were perfect, especially for this time of year. As for value, this is a specialty box and you can expect to get what you pay for but it won’t be an excessive value. It’s on the expensive side but good tea usually is. The nice thing is that you can order a monthly subscription or you can buy a one time box as a gift for a friend. And if you have a friend who loves tea, trust me, this will make that friend very happy and they might possibly love you even more than they did before. Also, holidays… Just sayin’.
