Each box comes with a card that describes the month’s theme and the items in the box.
Adagio Teas Candy Cane Tea – 15 pyramid tea bags, value: $6
I love to both drink and gift tea, so I was really happy to see this adorable tin of candy cane tea! The packaging is great, I love pyramid tea bags, and Adagio Teas is a brand I know and love.
Holly Baking Cookie Brittle in Chocolate Toffee – 6 oz, value: $6.95
These cookies are delicious – they’re a buttery toffee cookie coated in bittersweet chocolate, with toffee bits on top. They’ll go quickly in our house!
Wow Baking White Chocolate Cranberry Cookie – 2.75 oz, value: $1.99
Stainless Steel Tea Bag Tongs – value: $6.50?
Teapot Christmas Ornament – value: $3.50
I love that this cookie is all natural and gluten free! Also, it was delicious (past tense, because this was eaten shortly after photos were done being taken!).
These tea tongs are something I don’t already own, and will make steeping the candy cane tea easier (the pyramid tea bags don’t have strings attached). Usually, I’d use a spoon but these will definitely be handy!
Verdict: From the moment I began opening the December Tea Box Express, it felt like a present. The packaging was lovely, and every item goes together so well as part of their Christmas Tea + Cookies theme. As far as value goes, everything adds up to about $25. I love everything in the box, so even though it just about breaks even with the cost of the box, I’m still okay with that value.
