Sencha Organic Green Tea – Value $9.69

This is a mild tasting green tea with a 3 out of 5 caffeine rating. This was a good light tea but I preferred the Mint Sencha.

Jasmine Organic Green Tea– Value $9.69

The Jasmine Organic Green Tea is a green tea infused with Jasmine blossoms. It has a 3 out of 5 caffeine rating. The taste was very floral and this was my least favorite tea in the box. I also noticed it didn’t dissolve as well as the other teas I tried.

Earl Grey Organic Black Tea – Value $9.69

I prefer black teas over green so this one was a hit for me. Plus, it has the highest (5 of 5) caffeine rating in the box for that morning jolt.

Mint Sencha Organic Green Tea – Value $9.69

I don’t typically go for green teas but I really liked this one. The mint made it very refreshing and light. I enjoyed it both hot and cold – especially perfect as a cooling pick-me-up during a hot summer afternoon.

Verdict: When I first saw these powdered teas I thought they might be full of additives or chemicals, but I was wrong. They’re made from organic tea leaves with no preservatives, artificial flavorings, or sugar. I love that they dissolve in both hot and cold water – it has been too hot here to really enjoy hot anything. These dissolving powdered teas cut out the normal steep time so you get your tea fix very fast. I didn’t like the Jasmine tea but enjoyed the Mint Sencha and Earl Grey teas. As a bonus, the whole box experience is really well branded (I can’t resist good design) which inspired me to bring in some flowers and props for my photos, hope you like them!

  1. I signed up based on your review and am so glad I did! I am really enjoying the teas and in fact the subscription prices have gone down just a little bit since this was posted. They are a new company and so they are still figuring things out (hence the price reduction) but when they have a little hiccup now and then, their customer service is wonderful and right on top of things. They are very responsive and helpful and I love their products!

  2. Wow, gorgeous pictures!! I thought they were from the tea company. I have been looking for a tea box for a while, and I will have to put this on my wishlist.

    • Thank you!

  3. I just signed up for 1 carton per month. I love that you can prepare the teas hot or cold!

  4. I live the speckled plates! Would you mind sharing where you bought them?

    • Hi Amanda! Thanks! The plate is actually a wooden tray from West Elm. The maker is The Vintage Vogue. Hope that helps!

  5. Awesome review! The pictures are amazing! Love the idea of using a clear cup to see the finished product.

    • Thank you!

  6. I’m giving it a try! Seems like a good idea for summer, like you said.
