Organic Irish Breakfast – Black Tea 

This was my 2oz customer favorite tea of the month. I enjoyed this in the last box so I’m happy to have more of it! This tea is a 3 out of 3 on the caffeine scale and the malt scent is really nice. There’s a very faint chocolate flavor that mixes well with the malt. I add a little creamer in this one because it is strong and it makes a great breakfast tea!

Ceylon Supreme – Black Tea

One of my 5g pouches this month was the Ceylon Supreme tea. Ceylon is a region in This is a Sri Lankan black tea with “notes of spice”.  This was a really nice, simple black tea. I didn’t notice any spice that was too strong or discernible but it was a really smooth tea. I love when a tea is good enough on its own and I don’t have to any sweetener or creamer to it. This definitely fell into that category!

Cinnamon Spice – Rooibos Tea

This rooibos tea has a nice, almost nutty flavor. This works really well with the cinnamon and clove. I’ve been enjoying all the cinnamon teas from Field to Cup and this is no exception. It’s a 2 out of 3 on the caffeine scale and I enjoyed this with a splash of creamer. It’s an alternative to black tea or coffee for a morning drink.

Good Night – Wellness Tea 

This month came with two wellness teas and both we really enjoyable! This Good Night tea, as expected, has a 0 out of 3 on the caffeine scale. The calming tea contains valerian root, mugwort, passionflower, chamomile, lavender, tulsi, and lemon verbena. The scent of the tea leaves on their own was so relaxing.

Field-To-Cup-January-2016-0007

The flavors were all very light and comforting. I think this would actually taste great as a cold brew but I prefer hot tea to unwind at the end of the day. And this definitely does feel like a bedtime tea. The chamomile, lavender, and lemon verbena came through the strongest for me.

Vanilla Bean – Black Tea 

This was one of my favorites teas in the January box. The ingredients are simply black tea and vanilla bean. The fresh vanilla bean scent of this tea is so strong and delicious. This has a steep time of 4 minutes and steep temperature of 200°. I loved this tea without any added creamer or sweetener, as the vanilla provides enough sweetness on its own. This would be an interesting iced tea to try and I think I may have to do that in the future. As a cold brew, a tiny bit of creamer would give this almost a dessert feeling.

Organic Super Antioxidant Berries – Fruit Tea

This tea was sampled in a previous box so I was excited to try it out again! The first time I tried this blend I did it as an iced tea. For cold tea, you add the tea to half a cup of boiling water, then dilute with cold water. The coloring of this tea is a pretty light pink and the scent from the elderberry, currants, rose hips, and hibiscus is beautiful. The flavor is really light and nice.

Field-To-Cup-January-2016-0011

For this box, I went with a hot brew. This caffeine-free brew has a slightly longer steep time at 6 minutes and the hot brew creates a dark pink color. I found the flavor to be a little more robust in the hot brew so I’ll have to start trying more fruit teas hot!

Organic Bouquet – Green Tea 

The Organic Bouquet is one of the prettiest tea blends I’ve seen from this box. This has a quick brew time of 3 minutes and a lower steep temperature of 175°.

Field-To-Cup-January-2016-0013

I think this would be an awesome iced tea. I’m tempted to get more of this because I can picture a big pitcher of this iced tea with orange slices. And the tea leaves are so pretty that I’d love to freeze some in ice cubes. But it’s good to note that brewing this as an iced tea is more of a time commitment with a 6-8 hour steep time!

Headache Relief – Wellness Tea 

My second wellness tea is for headache relief. I didn’t have a headache when I tried this tea but I can see how it may help! The base of this tea is similar to a lot of other wellness teas with chamomile, lavender, elderflower, rose, and lemon verbena. These ingredients are always really soothing and this tea combines them with some peppermint, ginger, licorice, and willow bark. I always love the way peppermint and ginger can cut through the other flavors. While they give you a little kick, this tea has no caffeine so it’s still a nice tea to help you unwind.

 Strawberry Deluxe – Black Tea

This black tea has a 3 out of 3 on the caffeine scale. The ingredient list is simple – black tea, pieces of strawberry, and lemon essence. I went with a hot brew but I bet this would be really refreshing as an iced tea. The blend is really fragrant and the strawberry flavor is nice but not too strong. The lemon cuts through the strawberry so it’s not too sweet or sour. The strawberry is definitely more obvious in the fragrance instead of the taste. I don’t think I’ve come across a lot of black teas with fruit – in my personal experience, it’s often been fruit in a lighter tea. But I really liked this combination and I hope to try out some more black teas with fruit flavor.

Carrot Muffin – Fruit Tea

This was such an interesting tea! I haven’t seen a lot of tea with whole ingredients like this. This tea had pineapple chunks, apple pieces, carrot flakes, almonds, walnuts, coconut, and cinnamon. I assume that the larger chunks of nuts and fruit might be why it has a longer brew time at 8 minutes. I also had to cut down some of the large walnuts to fit in my infuser!  This tea smells like a delicious baked dessert – almost like a carrot bread. The cinnamon and nut flavors are the strongest but the pineapple, apple, carrot, and coconut creates a smooth layer on top that.

Verdict: As always, this tea box feels like a great value at 40+ cups of tea for $29.97. The brewing instructions are always such a help and the variety of teas is great. This month introduced me to some new combinations like the Strawberry Deluxe black tea and the Carrot Muffin fruit tea. I liked that I had an even mix of black, green, fruit, and wellness tea. This felt like a really well-rounded box and I was able to find a few new teas to add to my collection so this box was a win for me!

  1. This was my first box and I loved it! The Good Night tea is great right before bed!

  2. FYI the rooibos is caffeine free. All rooibos is naturally caffeine free. The package is mislabeled but the website is correct.

  3. Love this sub. That carrot muffin scared me at first, but after trying it I really enjoyed it…the pleasures of a sub service ;). I actually ordered extra of that Fruit Tea and the Rooibos one. Really enjoying learning about new teas and improving my health with all these antioxidants. Thank you for sharing this subscription service on MSAd!!

    • ETA that when I did order from the company other than the subscription their shipping is freaking Prompt! I had my teas within days of ordering them, such a wonderful thing considering when I order from other subs especially Julep it takes weeks for the goods to arrive.

      • Subs like Julep have to use ground shipping because nail polish is an explosive or hazardous chemical =\ I get mad every time I go to swap nail polish and realize I can’t ship priority because no polish on planes EVEN THOUGH you can bring it on a plane in your carry on. This makes no sense to me.

        Thanks for the coupon! I’ve got way too much tea right now so I went ahead and ordered this box ;D
