Each box comes with a card that describes the month’s theme and the items in the box.
Teapigs Earl Grey Strong – 15 tea bags, value: $9.99
Sticky Fingers Original Scone Mix – 15 oz, value: $5.99
Does it get more English than Earl Grey tea and scones? These tea bags are biodegradable, which is nice, and the scone mix seems really easy to make!
The Devon Cream Company Luxury Clotted Cream – 1 oz, value: $2.19
Bonne Maman Strawberry Preserves – value: $.69
Stainless Steel Bell Creamer (3 oz?) – value: $1.89
The preserves and clotted cream are meant to top the scones together. I hadn’t heard of clotted cream before, but apparently it’s best described as a mix between ice cream and butter! Definitely sounds interesting (and delicious!).
Verdict: I really liked this month’s Tea Box Express. I love that they are a tea subscription that doesn’t just send tea, but tea accessories as well. They hit the nail on the head with an English Tea Time theme, and I’m excited to try and use everything in this box! As far as value goes, everything adds up to $20.75 so it doesn’t quite break even with the value. Personally, though, I’m still pretty happy with the box overall because I love the theme and items so much.
