First, I accidentally entered the wrong shipping address. When I emailed the seller about it Carolyn (founder) replied immediately and offered to ship another box to the proper address ASAP. Luckily I was able to contact my local USPS and have it rerouted so it wasn’t an issue. Second, the strawberry tea infuser I got is super cute. Some smaller tea leaves do leak out into the tea but I don’t mind. It is rubber though so I’m interested to see how long it lasts before stretching out. Third, the flavors are all very fun and creative! I’ve only tried the Sweet Relaxation so far and it’s delicious. The tubes and bags of tea were smaller than I expected but it says it’s about 10 cups worth per each so we’ll see!
Overall great product and even better customer service!
Thank you so much for your review! We truly appreciate it (and you!).
I’ve been reviving this box for over a year, I get it delivered to work. I make a new cup every day and even have enough left over to share with my happy coworkers.
The box always has a great mix of caffeinated and decaf. The flavors are amazing, I’m always pleasantly surprised by the different flavors. I had no idea there were so many different teas out there!
Shipping was really fast, the selection is good and everything is packaged very well!
The teas were all great! I loved the variety. My only gripe is that the first box came completely unsealed, where anyone along the way could have tampered with it (I didn't look like it was, but I was wary). I did bring up my concerns and was told that they didn't use tape to be eco friendly. I totally get that! But there are other options to ensure that the packages are tamper proof. I was not able to comfortably enjoy the first box, but the subsequent packages all come in sealed envelopes so that is good. Over all a good experience, I just wish that they would try to find a way to seal that initial box.
Hi Heather! Thank you for the review! We've looked into some bio-degradable options for tape! :)
Thanks Simplicity Tea !
It was the perfect gift for my spouse on his birthday! Made his day for sure. He has already finished up the 1st batch and eagerly waiting for the next one.
I really loved the curated set, Taste was bang on, so flavorful & pretty soothing I will say.
Thank you so very much for curating such an amazing combination for him!
So happy you love your teas! We put a lot of time and energy into curating so we are thrilled you appreciate them! :)
Trashy looking. Bad Tasting.
looks like a terrible kids craft. Poorly executed, Very over-priced. Inconsistent delivery. No customer service. Horrible tea.
Hi Simon, we are sorry that we weren't your cup of tea! However, we don't have any messages/emails from you besides your cancellation notice so we didn't get to make a chance to make something right!
One of my favorites is getting my sample box of tea. I find a quite place to sit and I proceed to open each bag and enjoy the wonderful smells. All the flavors are amazing. I have been getting this awesome box for a year and will need a bigger basket.
Wow! We are thrilled you love the teas! Thank you for your review!
A great gift for my partner who loves loose leaf tea!
Fun flavors and the cutest little tea strainer.
Hello Ruthie! I'm so happy that the tea made you smile! That's why we do what we do! Thanks for the lovely review! -Carolyn
It's been a fabulous year of tea. And what a year we've all been thru! Like Simplicity Teas says, "Life is too short to drink bad tea" The packaging, description of teas, flavours are wonderful.
Thanks to my daughter for thinking of me :-)
Thank you for the review! We are thrilled that this made the perfect Mother's Day Gift for you!
I bought this subscription to reward myself for one month of not smoking... I immediately steeped up a pot of Candy Cane Lane tea in my Hydroflask. First, it's incredibly delicious--a light vanilla-peppermint lingering flavor floating atop a black tea base--I am in heaven. Second, I'm still healing--an there's just the right amount of mint--or the right kind of mint but it's soothing and taking care of the irritating, nagging need to clear my throat. I would definitely purchase this for the taste---but also for whatever it's doing for my breathing. Whatever it's doing, it's certainly helping me a great deal. THANK YOU!!!
Love my tea and strawberry!
I'm one month in and I'm loving it! Enjoying just enough a few new teas at a very reasonable price! What's not to love?!
New imaginative flavors each month! My friends always ask what's in my cup :)
I sent this to my friend for her birthday and she loved it! She was surprised and pleased with the flavors that she received and loved the packaging. Very nice quality!
Been a subscriber for over 1 year. I have tried other subscription boxes along the way and nothing compares to the tea quality, amount, and also the cute packaging helps! The customer service is great also!
Very good tea! Highly recommended!!
So glad you love your teas!
Tasty teas, cute packaging and a beautiful tea strainer. For the price this is an excellent subscription. Highly recommend!
So glad you loved the tea! We love making yummy teas and being an awesome value! :)
Love the tea an the strawberry was so cute... love it...❤️
Thank you! So glad you love it! Just know that since we are a small business... somebody does a happy dance every time we get a great review!
This box is always wonderful!!
My daughter loves tea and she is thrilled with the monthly treat!
I love this box, always a wonderful sampling of tasty seasonal teas. Great combo of caffeinated / non caffeinated and herbal teas. First shipment came with a cute tea strainer.
I really like this box, but it's more tea than I can drink. If I could do it every other month, I would. Happy sipping!
Love, love the teas. Getting the tea box is a highlight in the month!
Great tea and made for a great gift for my tea-loving mother in law!
Thank you so much for the review! It really does mean a lot to us, we are thrilled that we make the perfect gift!
I was surprised by the small size of the "full" packages of tea. The packages looked larger in the the pictures but then there was nothing to compare them to for perspective. Have tried 2 of the 4 teas I received and the tea itself is wonderful. Can't wait to try the other 2. The infuser that came with the tea is cute as all get out. So, other than the size of the pouches I really like this box (except it isn't a box). It too is a small package.
Hello Kathy! We are thrilled you love the flavors- we really do put our heart in soul into creating some awesome artisan blends. We have found that people who think there isn't enough tea simply aren't measuring out a teaspoon (instead they will just dump tea into the infuser).
A teaspoon really is the perfect amount for the infusers we provide as well since tea expands when the water hits it- and if there is too much in the infuser, the water cannot pass in between the leaves... thus wasting a lot of flavor and tea!
Each vial in the Tea Lovers contains 10 teaspoons, and each bag contains 7-12 teaspoons. So your package should have about 35-40 cups on average! That's less than .50...
