This box comes shipped in a really nice box. It’s the little things sometimes! It’s a drawer pull out box, and came in a clear mailing envelope. The design of the box is really pretty too!
I received biodegradable tea bags to use with the loose leaf tea. I really appreciate the fact that they include a way to steep the loose leaf tea, in case their subscribers don’t have access to a tea steeper.
This month, I also received six honey sticks to use with my tea!
This is a review of the “Frequent Cup” box.
Lavender Sencha Green Tea
This tea has flavors of cream, mint, and pepper. The ingredients are sencha and lavender. This is a low caffeine green tea and I actually enjoyed this one. The flavor was a bit milder than most green teas, and I used a bit of my lavender simple syrup to sweeten it.
Elderflower Organic Herbal Tea
This tea has flavors of apricots, honey, and grapes, and the ingredients are elderflower, elderberry, and linden flowers. I brewed myself a pot of this tea, and it was definitely yellow. I wasn’t a huge fan of the flavors initially, so this one will be going to a friend. I’m not sure what it was, but it’s just not my thing.
Sticky Rice Pu-erh tea
This is a medium caffeine, single origin fermented tea. The flavors listed on the package are steamed rice, mushrooms, and minerals. The single ingredient is just pu-erh tea. This one really weirded me out at first. Mushroom tea? No thank you. I did try it though (just for you!) and I don’t hate it. It was definitely earthy tasting and the fermented flavor did come through strong. I will finish the rest of the tea (there were four little discs in the bag) but I wouldn’t seek this one out again!
Verdict: I really love this box so far. First of all, the packaging is top notch, and I could tell that the tea was very high quality. I received a total of 2 ounces of teas, and the tea can be steeped more than once since the tea is such high quality. Rosali Tea says that the 2 ounces of tea I received should brew 30 initial cups, with the possibility to re-brew the leaves. I don’t think I personally will get 30 cups out of the tea, but much of that is because I don’t use loose leaf very often, and I think I use too much for each cup. I’m sure I’ll get better at this!
As far as the value goes, I definitely found the value of the tea worth the $19.95 price. Loose leaf tea can be very pricey, and many times if you purchase from the store the tea isn’t as fresh as it could be. Plus, the only loose leaf place around me is a very popular one that you’re probably thinking of, and I don’t always like their artificial flavors, so this is a great alternative!
Have you tried Rosali Tea yet? I think you should!
