Harney & Sons Tea of the Month Premium Sachet December 2018 - Box Front Review

Harney & Sons is a fine tea company that offers two tea of the month subscriptions: a Premium Loose Tea Box, and a Premium Sachet Tea Box.

This is a review of the Premium Sachet Tea of the Month box, which is $14 a month.

Each month you receive a small info sheet with a few details about the tea included and the steeping times.

A few individually packed bags of tea are included as well. I love throwing these in my purse to have on hand, as the tea selections at the coffee shop at school are a bit subpar.

This month’s tea came in an absolutely gorgeous gift box, and it feels like a holiday treat to have gotten TWO tea tins!

Holiday Tea

The first tea in the set is the holiday tea, which has a black tea base spiced with citrus, almond, clove, and cinnamon. This reminded me of a less-spiced version of chai, so I think the right play is to mix it with some milk and sugar. On its own, it fell a little flat, but that also could be because my steeping water wasn’t hot enough. Overall, though, it was comforting, pleasant, and had a nice mouthfeel.

White Christmas Tea

This is a white tea base with notes of almonds, vanilla, and cardamom with accents of chamomile flowers- when I was making this cup, I noticed there are actual chamomile flower buds in the tea leaves! I think this needed a bit of honey to brighten up the vanilla and almond flavors, as I think the chamomile is the strong player mixing with the white tea. I don’t taste any cardamom at all. This wasn’t my favorite cup of tea, but it wasn’t bad.

The Verdict: Harney & Sons gave us a spectacular December box! Getting two tins of tea in that lovely gift box made me feel like I was unwrapping a present to myself. I also love the tins the tea comes in, as they are both sturdy and secure while being nice enough to leave out for presentation. For $14 I think this subscription would be a lovely gift to the tea lover in your life (or to yourself), and I think the tea itself is high quality and delicious.

To Wrap Up:

Can you get this box if you sign up today? I am not positive but I think the January box is shipping!

Value Breakdown: This box costs $14 with free shipping and I received a gift set that retails for $21. That is like paying $7 for each tin of tea.

I am a staunch believer that pineapple doesn’t belong on pizza and when I’m not working as a family law attorney I enjoy hiking the Louisiana trails (alligator sightings are a favorite!) or relaxing with Duchess, my cat. I’m a sucker for anything labeled a mystery box and I’ve never met a bath bomb I didn’t like.

  1. I just subscribed! Harney and Sons always have delicious teas! I love their pretty tins, and now I can have them delivered, and get a discount! Yes, please, and thank you!!! Thank you so much for sharing this information and this fantastic review!

  2. I got these 2 teas last year at Christmas and wasn’t very fond of the flavors as hot tea, but I tried brewing them as iced tea and liked them much better cold for some reason.

  3. Seems very reasonably priced for what you get…

  4. I’ve sampled their teas before and loved them! Their acai one is auh-mazing! Their little satchels are so fancy too lol this is tempting
