Explorer - Black
Are you a Black tea lover? Do you drink 1 cup a day?
We have the box just right for you! We crafted this box to give you at least 2 delicious, black loose leaf teas every month, plus 2 teas that vary (it's what we like to call the surprise 🎉 part of your box!). We've curated and tested 1,000s of teas to bring you only the best there is to sip.
How do we decide? First, we use the International Standard of Cupping to ensure that your teas are not contaminated, overly oxidized (important if it's a delicate white tea!), or have off-tastes. It's an extra step we've always taken.
Second, we test the teas for ease of steeping. We make sure to provide you with easy-to-follow and specific times for each tea, so you get the best experience. Why? Because we want you to have those, aaaaah moments. 🤤
With each box, you'll get our comprehensive steeping guide, which includes water temperature recommendations to make sure you're steeping your teas at the proper temperature for each cup. We also include mug and teapot guidelines. We do the heavy lifting, so all you need to do is heat up some water and sip away!
- 4 teas every month (20-32 cups)
- 2 of the teas are always Black, and the other two could be: black, green, herbal, fruit, rooibos, white, oolong, wellness
- Personalized curation by our team of tea experts
- Steeping Guide for each tea with our expert guidelines to make it easy for you!
- Free Shipping and Free Tracking
- Free Tea Replacements - There's no shame in not liking one of our teas! (all you have to do is send us an email, and we'll send you options for replacements. Select and we'll send in your next month's box! Don't worry about returning the teas you didn't enjoy, just share them with friends and family).
When does my first box ship out?
Your first box will ship out within 1-2 business days after your initial purchase.
When will I be charged again?
Your box will renew on the same day you signed up.
How much tea do I get?
You receive 20-32 cups per month. Some teas can be resteeped multiple times.
How do my teas arrive?
Your teas arrive in light and heat proof sealed bags that prevent your tea from getting damaged or contaminated by other flavors in your kitchen. They are resealable!
Is your tea in teabags, or loose?
Our teas are loose leaf teas, and can be steeped in an infuser, tea basket, or teapot. Our T-Sac steeping bags are included in the first box to get you started.
Is this a subscription, or am I purchasing one box?
Our Explorer Black box is a subscription, and you will be billed until you pause or cancel from your account. You can also contact us at email@example.com for additional assistance.
Are there any returns?
Unfortunately, we can't accept any returns. However, we do offer free Tea Replacements for subscriptions (they ship in your next box)!
How do I give this as a gift?
If you want to give your recipient a one-time gift, we suggest the GIFT box. It won't renew and you will not have to manage their subscription account in case their address changes.
Love both of the black teas, haven't tried the other two yet but I'm sure they will be great!
I enjoyed the new changes, except I didn't get a pamphlet with information regarding my teas. I really did enjoy this from before, and I'm not sure if maybe it was an accident, or if I'll no longer be receiving this. Hoping that's not the case because I enjoyed reading about the teas that I hadn't tasted before. As well as being able to keep track of the teas that happened to be exceptional to me.
I got the tea subscription for my son who lives far away and who loves tea. He has been very pleased with the first month's shipment! Thanks!
Of all the teas I have received since my daughter purchased the membership for me for Christmas, I believe the Breakfast in Ceylon black tea is the best. Second is Caramello and 3rd - Rooibos Tea Pistachio on Vacation.
I enjoyed the large tea sample sizes, really enables me to decide if I like a tea after more than 1 cup. I liked the varieties this month, although I'm not a fan of English Breakfast and this box reaffirmed my stance. I wish there was a way to opt out of one variety of tea all together, I'm not a fan generally of fruit teas. Occasionally I have found one I like through this subscription but overall I'd prefer to have another black, green, or rooibos instead. I look forward to this subscription every month! There's never been a month when I didn't really love at least one of the teas, so I consider it a good investment. I'd rather find out what I don't like this way instead of buying a full-size version.
