TEA BOX EXPRESS MAY 2016 - items 1

Whimsy & Spice Earl Grey Sandwich Cookies – value: $10

These cookies are made with the flavor of Bergamot and have a white chocolate filling. They are so good! I didn’t think I’d like them much but I love them.

Whimsy & Spice Brown Sugar Gingerspice Shortbread Cookies – value: $8.50

I love any cookies with brown sugar and/or ginger! So tasty. These won’t last long.

TEA BOX EXPRESS MAY 2016 - items 2

Daisy Drink Covers – value: $7.99

These are cute – they make a seal on glasses/smooth rim containers. They’re cute! They’re supposed to help hot drinks hot and cold drinks cold. They’d also be great for outdoor parties.

TEA BOX EXPRESS MAY 2016 - items 3

Savoy Lemon Berry Ballet Green Tea – 3 oz, value: $12.95

This has lemon and raspberries in it! It sounds amazing. I’m looking forward to trying this – sounds like it’d be good iced too!

Verdict: This is a great Tea Box Express for me. My favorite thing about Tea Box Express over other tea boxes (for me, personally) is that they don’t just send teas, but also treats to eat with your teas and tools/paraphernalia. I’ve found tons of snacks and treats I’ve loved through this box. The value adds up to about $39.44, which is pretty normal for this sub. 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.

  1. I had to unsub from this because they kept sending tea strainers every month. They do a great job sending awesome tea, though!! I found several of my favorite teas through this box.

  2. This is consistently one of my favorite subs! I already finished off the gingerbread cookies, they were really tasty.
