Tea Box Express Subscription Box Review + Coupon – Mar 2016
Tea Box Express is a monthly box of tea goodies! It’s meant to feel like a complete little tea party in a box.
Each month brings a new box that always includes brand-name tea (whole leaf tea, either in loose leaf or pyramid bag form) and three or four tea accessories and paraphernalia.
This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription Box: Tea Box Express
The Cost: $25.50 for month-to-month, $74 for 3 months, and $139 for 6 months. Shipping is $5.99/month.

The Products: 1 quality tea and 3 or 4 accessories per month
Ships To: US
Each box comes with a card that describes the month’s theme and the items in the box.
Hastings Sugar Spoon – value: $4.90
This is a cute little spoon. It’s practical – the little spout on the side is handy.
Paper Tea Filters – ~20 ct, value: $1.40
This is cute! I actually think I really like this method of using disposable paper tea filters much better than the usual loose leaf infusers. Probably because less clean up, maybe? I’m looking forward to trying these.
Modern Tea Girl Sugar Melange Pure Amber and White Rock Sugar – 6 oz, value: $9
I haven’t tried this kind of sugar before, but it looks pretty, so I think it would be cool for a little tea/coffee “center” in my kitchen.
Sticky Fingers Irish Soda Bread – 15 oz, value: $5.99
This bread is minimum effort – just mix in water and bake! I’ve decided I want to bake more often so I’m excited to have something to try out.
Royal Irish All Natural Black Tea – 3 oz, value: $3.73
This is supposed to be a strong black tea and very well complimented with milk and sugar. I don’t usually drink my tea with milk but have been curious – I guess this is a good excuse to try it!
The Verdict: This month is an okay Tea Box Express for me. The value adds up to $26, which breaks even with the cost. I’m not particularly happy with that value, but I love this sub overall, so I’m not too bummed and am looking forward to future boxes. I think that this box tends to be more about curation and discovery than a huge value, so if you’re considering this sub, just keep that in mind.
