Oh Joy! Mix & Match Stationery – Value $8.95

The card explains that Oh Joy! is one of Kiko & Sven‘s favorite blogs. This stationery set came with 16 sheets, envelopes and some stickers, all in a pretty floral pattern.

Japanese Tea Cup – Value $10?

This organically shaped cup has a mottled white glaze over a brown base, which reminds me of snow melting on the ground. What I like best about it is that the indentations make it easy to hold. Although the cup is thin, it feels very strong.

Wood-handled Tea Strainer – Value $6.99

I love this tea infuser! It’s fun to make the sides pop open, and the mesh is perfect for green tea, which is often finer than black tea.

Yamamotoyama Organic Green Tea Loose Tea – Value $8.40

This certified organic green tea grown in Brazil has an earthy flavor that I really like. There’s nothing like taking a few minutes out of a busy day to have a cup of tea, and I really appreciated that they sent the tea, infuser and cup in one box.

Ceramic Statement Ring – Value $15?

As I was drinking the tea, I noticed there was one more item in a little bag. I wasn’t expecting much, so was delighted to see this ceramic ring. The band adjusts easily to fit. I like the monochrome pattern and the contrast between the matte background and the glossy botanical motif. This is definitely something I’ll wear a lot this autumn. 

Verdict: Every box I get from Kiko & Sven seems a little better than the previous one. I can only guess at the retail value of some items, but I estimate a value slightly above the $46 price of the box. More importantly, there were no filler items and everything fit well together as a cohesive experience. I think Kiko & Sven makes a nice alternative to some of the more mainstream lifestyle subscriptions.

What do you think of September’s Kiko & Sven Box? What’s your favorite tea for autumn?
