The original size of tea samples I was getting throughout my subscription was perfect, just enough to try something new and fairly priced. Sad that they changed the subscription so that you get more tea for more money- have to cancel, I don't drink that much tea and the price increase, while perhaps fair, isn't something I can do on the reg.
I was very happy with the fast shipping and also the packaging (they even wrote a cute message for me on the envelope). The tea is well packed, and there are informations and istructions.The only reason I didn't put 5 starts is that unfortunately I got, instead of 4 kinds of tea, just 3 (one arrived in double) and so that was a pity because I really wanted to try the missing one.
I've been subscribing to the tea explorer for a few months now, and I've been loving the variety of the teas! You get 4 loose leaf teas and a fold out card with steeping instructions and a place to write notes and mark the ones you love. I especially loved the vanilla horchata they sent out a few months ago, and had to order more! I've tried so many new teas I'd never dare to buy in bulk. overall, very happy so far with this sub :)
