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. This month, there was also a coupon.
Flip Flop Shortbread Cookie from The Decorated Cookie Co. – Value $5 (buy a package of 8 for $39.99)
These have limited availability (they don’t start shipping until September) but you can get a price if you add a set to your cart. At any rate, if you like the cookie, there are plenty of other styles to choose from that are going to have the same flavor and texture. This is a fun summer design and it tasted good (and honestly, survived well considering it shipped in a box with some heavy magnets).
The item name says it all in terms of what these are! Unlike a lot of decorative magnets, these are pretty heavy and strong. They are actually useful to hold things to the refrigerator! This company makes a lot of cute sets of magnets for many different occasions.
Rose Petal Herb-Infused Pure Cane Sugar from Beach House Teas (1 oz) – Value $4
I paired this with a white tea so I could really taste the rose flavor. I wanted something where the flower was not overpowered by tea. It was nice! I am not sure how it would work with the rose petals there, but I kind of want to try this on top of crème brulee.
Blueberry Beach Breeze Tea from Beach House Teas (2 oz) – Value $9.99
This is a lovely tea to look at. You can actually and identify see the ingredients, including dried blueberries, blackberry leaf, and hibiscus (the hibiscus is probably responsible for the color when brewed). This is a green tea that pairs well with the fruity ingredients.
I made this hot but then poured it over ice. I had oral surgery about a week and a half ago and am not supposed to drink really hot things yet. As it turned out, this worked very well as an iced tea and I kind of want to brew up a whole pitcher of it.
Verdict: I calculated a value of about $37 for the July Tea Box Express. This is a few dollars more than the cost of the box plus shipping, so I’m happy with the value. Plus, everything was a good fit for me this month. I love the tea, the sugar is fun, I always feel like I am getting away with something when I manage to fit a cookie into my calorie goal for the day, and the magnets are actually functional in addition to being decorative.
