The variety is wonderful! Highly recommended
I got this as a gift for my daughter who loves tea. She just got the first box, and is in love with it already! She adores the steeper, and has tried two teas so far. She loves them both.
I would be more than willing to submit a review but as of 3/10/17 i haven't received my shipment.
When it comes to subscription boxes some are quite expensive.
Simply Loose Leaf let's you enjoy receiving a monthly surprise of 4 new teas to try plus other little gifts for only $9...I've actually have paid that for 1 coffee....
The teas I received I was very happy with...looking forward to April's box..
So maybe coffee is not for you. (I suppose people like that exist, hard as it might be for me to understand it!) Well, I had the opportunity to enjoy a free three month subscription to a club for tea lovers recently. My honest review follows.
We actually drink a fair amount of tea around here in addition to coffee. William especially likes to start his morning with “strong black tea” and we all enjoy relaxing cups of chamomile or blends meant to promote sleep and relaxation.
Simple Loose Leaf shipments include at least four samples of various kinds of tea each month, and a three-month subscription will only set you back $17 each month (plus I’m going to share a coupon with you if you keep reading).
Notice I said “loose leaf.” Most of us are used to our tea coming in little tea bags. I remember when I first got married my mother-in-law gave me a tea ball for brewing loose tea and I didn’t know what it was for! Of course the nice things about loose leaf tea is that you can experiment with how much you want to use to make a brew that’s right for you. And the nice folks at Single Loose Leaf kindly provide you with reusable bags so that you will be ready to brew your first cup as soon as you open your box.
I’ve received two boxes so far, each with five varieties of tea:...
I love tea. I also love getting packages in the mail. The subscription box is such a nice treat and it's very nicely packaged, it felt extra special. The customer service is top notch. I would recommend this service to any tea lover - it would also be a lovely gift.
I got a 3 month gift sub for my mom. She is a tea lover and goes to many afternoon teas around the area with her friends. She loves discovering new teas and I thought this would make a great "just because" gift. She got her first box the other day and so far she loves it. It came with a "fridge" magnet on the the different brewing temps and time for different teas. She really likes that. Also, It came with a silicon novelty infuser that she is rather tickled with. I am over 1,000 miles away and she went on about 30 minutes, telling me about her box. I told her she has 2 more to look forward to and she is already excited. Thanks for making a cratebox a senior lady can enjoy!!!
I received my first box this week and was pleasantly surprised! Not only did I receive four amazing teas there was also an adorable brewer for my tea cup! I highly recommend this box, it'll will meet all your expectations and more!
I quite enjoy getting new teas each month and with them a few tea bags for easy use. They all come with excellent discriptions and also instructions for the best way to make the tea. I would only point out that you will always be given a green tea and a black tea with your monthly subscription and cannot ask for a substitution. Great customer service as well
I ordered a year gift subscription for my spouse. We look forward to trying new varieties every month. It has really deepened our appreciation of tea.
I got a 6 month gift subscription for my mom for mother's day. She has really enjoyed the teas. When opening the pouches, they always smell so divine.
I usually am not a fan of black tea but I really like all of the tea I RECIEVED in my first shipment. I'm excited for next month.
Jacquie is right when she says they only give you enough for about 2 cups each. They give you roughly 2 tablespoons of each tea, and the quality is good enough that you can brew each tablespoon twice before the flavor is too washed out, but doing the math that's still only 16-24 cups, most decidedly NOT 30.
That being said, this tea is absolutely delicious. Even the types of tea I'm not a fan of I find myself trying simply because the quality they send you is amazing. This is the way tea should be made.
I have received a few months of Simple Loose Leaf Tea now and I love it! Each month I receive 4 new teas to try and I have yet to find any that I did not enjoy. There is quite a variety so it is fun for someone like me who is new to loose leaf tea and learning about the different kinds. Though they do supply write ups about the different types, I was so interested that I ordered some books about tea to learn more.
Loose leaf tea is 100% different than the kind you buy in bags in the store - so much more flavorful.
I have not tried other tea subscription services, but read articles by others who had and recommended Simple Loose Leaf Tea. Their prices compare favorably with other companies for what you receive although shipping is charged separately so my 9$ membership actually costs 12$.
I was suspicious of the little fabric bags they send for brewing the tea, but with testing found that they actually work better than my other devices because they are easy to load without losing leaves and the bags are better at keeping leaves out of the brew.
As a prior diet soda addict, Simple Loose Leaf Tea is making a healthier beverage option more fun and exciting.
I got this as a gift for my roommate and it has been great so far! There's been such an awesome variety every month. Love it! I always look forward to seeing what we'll get next.
I bought this for my Mom for Mothers day and it is something that she looks forward to getting every month. Each month it comes in and she can't wait to see what has come in. The teas are always very tasty and they send a nice variety. This is the perfect gift for any tea lover.
I've been signed up for this box for a few months now. This is a great subscription for people who want to try new teas but don't want a 1/2 lbs. I signed up for 4 teas and I get ususally two unique ones and one green base and one black. I like the variety and the quality of the teas and I'm pretty picky. The amount is about 2 pots, so not much, but it's only a few bucks so I feel that the amount equates the expense. They also send a few cotton tea bags which is a nice thing to have in general. Overall I've been very satisfied. I have a lot of teas I regularly buy and it's nice to have a few different ones at home too.
This is a nice, straightforward subscription that allows you to sample different teas each month. I only wish they had a way for you to choose specific flavors to opt out of that you know you don't like, so no tea would be wasted. Other than that, I really enjoyed it.
I love subscription boxes. I have tried several (my teenage daughter likes to try them with me) But, the Simple Loose Leaf was the most affordable box (at $9 a month v $35 or $40). I was never disappointed with a weird tea. They were all tasty and we received a fantastic variety.
I loved the loose leaf tea box! It came with teas I've never even heard of, but somehow became my favorite! The teas all come in small taster portions so if you really don't like a flavor you dont feel like you're wasting more than a cup. The only downside I came across in this box is they send you these little pouches to put your tea leaves into to steep. I love this idea, but there are only 2 of them in each box. Maybe for the first month of each subscription a small metal tea steeper would be a great addition. Overall, I love the idea of a tea subscription and I recommend it to anyone who likes tea.
Tea is one of my favorite things in life, so having a variety of loose leaf teas sent every month is right up my alley. Simple Loose Leaf is reasonably priced for the amount of product received. I would prefer all of the teas to contain caffeine, but also realize there are people who might only want teas without caffeine. I do wish there was a way to customize tea preferences. I'm not particularly a fan of chai tea, but have received it, and I generally find fruity teas to be a bit too sweet. That being said, I have loved more of their teas than I have had ones I didn't particularly like. Would recommend to tea drinkers with an open mind that are willing to try a variety of teas.
Couldn't be happier with my subscription. Not only is the tea excellent, but customer service is amazing too! I'm very indecisive about what teas to buy so having a variety is always a welcome surprise!
I l've been receiving simple loose leaf for 3 months now and I love it! Each month I've received 4 teas to try and they've all been wonderful. It's good quality tea and it's always something new. I love that you always get a black, green and herbal tea because that way you can try different kinds within each category. It's not expensive and they always ship super fast. I always get my teas the first week of month. Highly recommend
I've been getting this box for about 8 months and love it. The tea is usually strong enough to use less than what you would normally. I haven't counted my cups, rather the variety I have enjoyed. I've tried other subscription teas that is more like drinking potpourri. Yuck. This box I've enjoyed all but one so far. 👍👍
I love this subscription. They sent a great mix of both herbal and caffeinated teas, which was great for me. It's so affordable and I love being able to try different varieties instead of wasting money buying full boxes of tea that I end up giving away.
The customer service is fantastic. I had to put my subscription on hold for a few months, and they did it without hesitation!
