Sips by Tea Subscription Review + 50% Off Coupon – April 2021

I didn’t calculate a total value for Sips by this month since the items aren’t sold online in the provided quantities and/or configurations. This was a pretty good month for me from Sips By. Although I do not care for lemongrass, the three non-lemongrass teas I received were great, and I can appreciate some things about the tea that did contain lemongrass even if it wasn’t my favorite. I learned about a couple of new brands, as well. I was really in the right place to enjoy the energy tea and plain black teas are always welcome, as well.

I have liked this subscription every month so far. I really feel they pay attention to the profile I filled out (MSA readers have commented that they received totally different boxes in a given month) and even though I did already have a full-size container of one of these, the other three were completely new to me. (And I guess the fact I got one I already bought indicates their matching algorithm is pretty accurate.) Although you may not be getting a really high value, ounce for ounce, I feel like this subscription can actually save you money in the long run. First off, you get to try a small amount of a product before committing to a full size purchase. You can’t just buy 3 or 4 servings in a store, you have to get a whole box, and what happens if you don’t like it? You’re stuck with the rest. Here, you are more likely to get teas you’ll like in the first place due to the profile, and you can try them in smaller quantities than you’re able to buy in stores or online, so there’s no getting stuck with a pound of something you don’t enjoy.

I didn’t calculate a total value for Sips by this month since the items aren’t sold online in the provided quantities and/or configurations. I feel like a broken record (if anyone even remembers what that means? or am I just showing my age here) but this was another good month for me from Sips by. I can tell that they are actually listening to my preferences, and I know from reader comments that I get a completely different package from other subscribers. So individual curation is spot-on. I never feel like the boxes are repetitive, I truly get a mix of black, green, white, oolong, and herbal, flavored and unflavored, and a wide variety of price ranges. (Sometimes you want something that won’t break the bank to buy a whole box and sometimes you want to try something fancier that’s out of your normal price range!) I also discovered three new brands this month, which is fun.

"Great way to discover teas!"
Jun 2, 2021
I love SipsBy. The price might be considered a little "steep" (see what I did there?) for the amount of tea you get, but I am quite pleased. You get around 16 servings or so in your box, so you can try so many teas from brands you've never heard of. I've discovered plenty of new flavors! So, rather than buy a whole box, you can try just enough to really know if you do or don't care for a tea. I love the included cloth bags, too. You can let the company know your preferences via their quiz. While it doesn't cover all of my picky requirements, like no mint and no coffee in my tea, I contact customer service and let them know that I dislike the Greys entirely. I haven't received an Earl or Lady Grey concoction since. They will work with you. In addition to the subscription, the site has a shop feature. They curate boxes around holidays, themes, and so on. They have lovely tea ware. But best is their page of discounts from their vendors! Attaching a pic of today's box.

This is a wonderful subscription if you love tea. There is always an interesting variety, and customer service is very responsive. I love the mix of bags and loose leaf, and the discount that is offered by vendors should you choose to buy more of a specific tea.

"Mediocre Value"
Dec 14, 2021
I got this box for free for a promotion and couldn't fathom paying $16 full price for this subscription. You receive 16 tea bags, so you're paying $1 per bag. Some people may appreciate the curation, but for someone like me that $16 would allow me to buy more tea bags with more variation if I just shopped at the grocery store.

"Not my cup of tea"
Apr 8, 2021
It introduced me to some new teas. But I felt like they could put more in the box for the price. Even if it’s just regular pekoe tea. Also they have some very pagan branding for lack a better word. With words like magic and things like that in the names. I know that’s not important to a lot of people but it is to me.

"Unfair business practice"
Mar 31, 2022
I received a gift for a 3 month subscription for my birthday in October 2021. I thought it unusual that I had to add my credit card information in order to redeem my gift. I received my October, November and December gift boxes. I received an email in January that my new box was on its way. When I tried to cancel the order and stop the subscription, I was told it was too late and was charged $16. During email conversations with Katie, she said to put RETURN TO SENDER and mail it back if I wanted a refund. That was over 2 months ago and no credit or response to my emails. I have never dealt with a company that requires a credit card to redeem a gift subscription. This is an unfair business practice.
