There was a card asking you to share your box contents on social media. This subscription typically does not have an information card with it.

A Couple of Squares, Inc., Happy Hour Sugar Cookies (5.6 oz) – Listed Value $12

These cookies are sold at places like Williams-Sonoma and aren’t easy to find online. But if you look at Williams-Sonoma Dessert prices, the MSRP of around $12 seems like a bargain! At any rate, these are (or were, as they’re all gone now) were adorable and actually pretty good for packaged sugar cookies. Some of them were broken but any cookie with a similar texture would’ve been. The pieces were still good.

Duchess of Earl from Tease Tea (40g) – Value $7.20 (buy 50 g for $9)

This is one of the most beautiful loose leaf teas I’ve ever seen, I think. The rose petals and cornflowers add visual interest and bright, natural colors. This is an Earl Grey style tea and it is actually pretty good. Plus, you don’t need a lot to brew a pretty strong cup of tea.

Takes Two to Mango – Value $5?

This tea wasn’t available on the Tease Tea site but I love the inclusion of warmer gold/yellow-hued flower petals in addition to small mango pieces and ginger. This tea makes me think of warm, sunny things, so I’ve taken it to my office for rainy days (I work on the 8th floor and it is pretty dreary in the rain). It’s not a super fruity tea, despite the mango.

Here are the brewed teas (the tea infusers were mine as I wanted matching ones for the photo). The Duchess of Earl is on the left and the mango tea is on the right. (Both are black teas so they look pretty similar.)

Silicone Tea Infuser from Tease Tea – Value $8

This is adorable and the pink color really goes with all the pink packaging this month. (I don’t know if that was deliberate or not, but it works.) I love that it has a little tray because finding a place to set your tea infuser can be difficult, but that’s not a problem here. (This is a sale price; these usually go for $9.)

Honey Spoons from Melville Candy – Total Value $4.08 (buy a 24 pack for $48.99; other sizes also available)

I didn’t realize what these were at first (until I looked them up), but you put them in a hot beverage for a minute or so and then your beverage is sweetened! Lots and lots of flavors and styles are available from the manufacturer and you can even get custom artwork and such for wedding favors. I usually drink my tea black but I tried one in some Crio-Bru and it was pretty good. (These have some sort of egg-based ingredient in them, but they also have honey, so of course, they are not vegan. They are vegetarian, though.)

Verdict: I calculated a value of about $36 for the May Tea Box Express (give or take). That is a really good value for this subscription. Once again, I am thrilled to have discovered a new tea company (that makes delicious, beautiful teas) and I thought the other items were nice, as well. I drink a lot of tea so I know I will use all of it up, but I do like getting some accessories and treats along with the tea.

What did you think of Tea Box Express? Do you get any tea subscriptions?
