  1. Are any tea subscription boxes either eco conscious or zero waste?

  2. I’ve had SipsBy for a year now and love the personalization. I have found some real winners through this box. 🙂

  3. this looks good to me

  4. We don’t have so many tea subscription services in the UK but this is improving. Such a pity as there are so many teas I’d like to explore

    • Is there one of these tea subs that you’d be most interested in? Thinking about signing up my Nan for a prepaid sub for Christmas, and she’s English. She mostly drinks Tetley nowadays but I’d like to get her something different she’d enjoy as well.
