Each box comes with a card that describes the month’s theme and the items in the box. This month’s theme is about Earth Day and being economically responsible.
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.
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.
