Each box comes with a card that describes the month’s theme and the items in the box.
Two Moon Shortbread Pumpkin Spice Shortbread – 6.5 oz, value: $6.14
I’m a sucker for shortbread, but I like it when it’s really buttery. This pumpkin spice kind didn’t blow my mind on its own, but I can really see how it’d be extra tasty with a cup of tea.
Savannah Bee Company Honey Straws – 12 pack/2.24 oz, value: $6
Honey straws are something I really like but never tend to think to buy. I’ve tried honey from this brand before and enjoyed it a lot, so I’m excited for these!
Silver Sugar Spoon – value: $3?
I couldn’t find this exact one online, so I based my value off of a set of something similar. I think it’s pretty, and it’ll look great on my tea station in my kitchen.
Metal Tea Bag Rest – value: $3
Simple, but handy! This could also be cute to display a couple bags of tea for guests, too, I think.
Fashionista Tea Organic Masala Chai – 1.6 oz (18 tea sachets), value: $13.49
I haven’t heard of this brand before, but chai tea is especially great in winter. I’m looking forward to trying it! Especially because it’s organic and fair trade.
Here’s a card with some more info about this brand. If I’m honest, I really don’t know how they make “tea meet fashion” other than to have a stiletto on the tag and pretty packaging. I’m not complaining, though – tea is tea to me!
Here’s the back of the tin, with steeping instructions.
Verdict: The value for this month’s Tea Box Express adds up to $31.63. To me, that value is okay, especially because I know I like and will use everything in the box. I think that this box tends to be more about curation than a huge value.
