SAVE 5% by prepaying! Your subscription automatically ends after 3 months.
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).

I was surprised by how good all of the teas were and how fresh they were. My favorite was the Nigri Silk. I’ll definitely be ordering more of that!
I got turned on to this subscription box by accident, and I'm so glad I did. I love trying different teas and this has allowed me to try small amounts of different teas, all are delicious! I really appreciate the enclosure advising how best to brew and serve the teas. I will be glad to get next month's box.
I was looking for more than just the simply supermarket bag teas we are so accustomed to, especially after Teavanna was decimated by Starbucks. This is awesome! I love the chance to try different teas and tea combinations from around the world, then hone in on my favorite. Excellent service, wonderful communications and in packaging that explains all you would want to know about the tea, where it came from, what to expect and how to properly brew and consume it. It's honestly one thing I really look forward to each month.
Every tea was absolutely incredible! The oolong tea and black tea were super familiar and delicious, while the chai and black tea with ginger were new experiences for me. That being said, I really enjoyed every tea sent to me, with my favorite of them being the black tea with ginger. Easy 5 stars!
Chai was wonderful
