Each box comes with a card that describes the month’s theme and the items in the box. This month’s theme is about a little indulgence for yourself!
Conservatory Scented Soy Candle from Puur Body – 2 oz? value: $2?
Taza Stone Ground Coco Besos Amaze Bar – 2.5 oz, value: $4.95
I love soy, wood-wick candles! The scent is tea, spice, and orchid. I love it! It smells very fresh and warm.
This chocolate is delicious! It’s USDA Organic, kosher, and Non-GMO certified.
SerendipiTea Roses Plenty Blended Tea – .75 – 1 oz, value: $3?
SerendipiTea Once Upon a Tea Blended Tea – .75 – 1 oz, value: $3?
I can’t find these sized tins priced on SerendipiTea’s website, so I’m estimating the value. These tins make approximately 10 cups.
The Roses Plenty blend is roses and green tea – it’s very light and floral. I’m a fan!
The Once Upon a Tea blend has apple, cacao beans, chocolate bits, natural cream flavor, peppermint, and natural vanilla flavor. Sounds like a dessert in a cup! And, it’s caffeine free so I’m thinking I’ll try it after dinner sometime soon!
Earl Grey Herbal Tea Lip Balm from PuurBody – value: $3.50
Snap Mesh Tea Ball Infuser – value: $6.58
I’m definitely glad they included a loose leaf tea infuser in this box! I didn’t have a good loose-leaf tea infuser to use. This one closes very strongly so I’m not worried about getting pieces in my tea.
One thing that I love most about this subscription – and that sets it apart from other tea subscriptions – is that they include tea paraphernalia and goodies in addition to the tea itself. I love the idea of an earl grey flavored chap stick, and I’m happy to get one in this box.
Verdict: This isn’t my favorite month from Tea Box Express, but I know I will use everything in the box, so that’s still a win for me. Like I said, I love that they are a tea subscription that doesn’t just send tea, but tea accessories as well. As far as value goes, everything adds up to $23.30 so it doesn’t quite break even with the cost of the box. I wish there were a little more value, but I’ll still use everything, so I’m okay with it.
