TEA BOX EXPRESS APRIL 2015 - items 1

Snap Back Ginger Detox Cookie from the Cookie Department – value: $2.07

Cherry Bomb Cookie from the Cookie Department – value: $2.24

I’ve tried this Snap Back cookie before, I think from Love With Food, and it’s good! I was excited about trying the Cherry Bomb flavor (especially because it’s gluten-free), and it was awesome. It’s a double-chocolate chip cookie with cherries in it.

Paper Towels Are Jealous Tea Towel – value: $12

I think a tea towel is a good idea to include in a tea box, especially for a month with a theme of reducing waste/being nicer to the environment. This one is 100% cotton, and I think it’s pretty cute.

TEA BOX EXPRESS APRIL 2015 - items 3

Sencha Naturals Green Tea Mints – 1.2 oz, value: $4

Sencha Naturals Dragonfruit Green Tea +C – value: $1.49

Two Leaves and a Bud Organic African Sunset Tea – box of 15, value: $8.49

I like these mints – the flavor is a blend of organic matcha and sencha green tea with a touch of mint.

I’m really excited to try this Green Tea +C drink mix! It says it’s effervescent so I expect it to be a little fizzy. The flavor is dragonfruit, and the boost of vitamin C comes from cherries!

The info card describes this tea as a blend of rooibos tea, lemongrass, flower petals, and citrusy ingredients – sounds delicious to me! Also, the pyramid bags are compostable.

The Verdict: Once again, I love my Tea Box Express! Personally, this is my favorite tea-related sub box because it includes things that aren’t just tea, like snacks and accessories. As far as value goes, everything adds up to $30.29, so that breaks even with the cost of the box shipped. Part of me wishes there were a little more value, but since I like and will use everything, I’m okay with the value.

  1. This is my first Tea Box and I’m so super excited! It arrives today and I can’t wait. I struggled for a while about it because the value isn’t great but I love tea and the idea of getting a little surprise box of tea every month was too good to pass up. I’ve liked every one of their boxes so I’m okay with the lower value.

  2. I really like this box, but don’t think it’s worth that price! 🙁 I hope maybe they will go down in the future.

  3. I love reading the reviews. The tea towel is perfect!

  4. I’ve been eyeing this one for a while, but you’ve finally convinced me. Subscribed!
