Each box comes with a card that describes the month’s theme and the items in the box.
The Tea Spot Bolder Breakfast Loose Leaf Tin – 3.25 oz, value: $10.99
I like this brand’s teas, and I’m happy to have a whole tin! Plus, I love their packaging.
Victorian House Scones Brown Sugar Shortbread Mix – .84 lbs, value: $7.25
These cookies sound delicious! I love shortbread and brown sugar so I’m sure that these will be right up my alley. I like that they included a mix and not just a couple cookies in the box – it’s fun to have a mix that I can bake up, especially this time of year.
The Tuffy Steeper – value: $8.95
I’ve received a lot of tea infusers from subscription boxes but I think this is my favorite! It’s modern and unique, and I like that I can pour my hot water over it into my mug. Plus, the top turns into a drip dish for once you’re done steeping. This is actually the second I’ve received in a sub box so I am happy to gift one – my sister would love this.
Here’s a better look at the infuser.
These taffy candies are a nice little extra treat and I like that they included seasonal flavors. I personally don’t care for taffy myself, but I gave these to my dad who said they were pretty good!
Verdict: The value for this month’s Tea Box Express adds up to $27.69. I think that this box tends to be more about curation than a huge value, but even though I like everything in the box, I’m not happy that the value is less than the cost of the box. Hopefully, this improves a little more soon!
