Q: I'm considering getting this for my mom, but she has celiac and I'm worried that she might get sick. Is there a risk of cross-contamination? (With gluten, not COVID-19)Asked by Madeline F., August 2020
No, there are no ingredients containing gluten in any of our teas, nor do we have anything in our warehouse that would result in cross-contamination.
We also list all the ingredients of each tea on our pouches so you know what the teas contain.
Q: About how many grams of tea do you get in a bag/box?Asked by Aidiris R., May 2020
Each box contains 4 pouches, and the exact amount of grams or ounces varies
per pouch depending on what kind of tea it is. A white tea, which can be
very light and leafy, may only weigh .5 oz (14g) when we fill the pouch.
However, most teas are much more dense and weigh 1.3 oz (36 g) when the
pouch is full. On average, each pouch contains about 0.8 oz (22 g) of tea.
Got this as a gift for my grandpa for Father’s Day. He loves tea and this was perfect. He called when he got it and was so excited to try out the different teas. And loved that it had information about the tea and that it wasn’t just a single serving size. So happy with this. I’ll most likely be getting him another for his birthday and Christmas lol. Thanks so much!!
First a foremost, the selection and variety was very pleasing. I'm not stuck drinking the same tea for the next month.
Secondly, the flavors are quite nice. Subtle, but taste great hot or cold. The tea is simple and organic, so one doesn't have to worry about crazy additives or harsh chemicals.
I full recommend this to anyone who drinks tea.
I love this subscription! It has a nice selection of teas in portions that give you enough to savor them. If you really love a particular selection, they often have larger quantities available to buy. They select a wide variety from herbal tisanes to pure varietals, and they are packaged well, so the tea arrives fresh and intact.
I've gotten a year's worth of boxes now, and they've all been great. I don't love flavored teas, like "strawberry green tea". I tried three other tea subscriptions before I found this one, and didn't much like them. All of these teas are just really good tea, and all the teas are very different. Charlie has been terrific the few times that I've needed to email with questions or changes. Highly recommend this box!
My first impression was thinking how nice the box was as I took it from the mailbox. It fits the subscription theme well and the sample sizes are decent.
Pumpkin Oolong: Not really into this blend, though it had a very nice fragrance. 3/5
Golden Monkey: Robust and smooth cup. I got some slight cocao notes, followed by the rich woody taste. GM is a must try for any black tea lover. 5/5
Ancient Tuo Cha: Not the best Pu-erh I've had but a decent try for newcomers of this tea. Deep and smooth wood notes. 3.5/5
Valerian Dream: Awesome tisane. I haven't tried a valerian tea before but would definitely buy more of this blend. The added citrus flavor is a nice touch. 5/5
With my subscription I always received a high quality and varied amount of teas. If you looking to Borden your flavor base and discover some great new teas this is the box for you! Shipping was always grade a and never had a problem with packaging
LOVE! Absolutely love. Great packaging, delicious high quality teas!
Beautiful box, shipped quickly after subscription and arrived at the perfect time (COVID isolation). The tea is super fresh and fragrant. I really appreciate the mix of caffeinated and herbal teas which are perfect for all hours of the day. Will definitely be purchasing a few boxes for my mom at Christmas!
In fact I loved one of the teas so much that I went to Tea Runners website to order more. However the shipping to Vancouver (Canada) for one tea is exorbitant and I could never justify it. So will be enjoying them while I have them.
I love tea, so it's no surprise that I love Tea Runners. My niece gifts a subscription to me once a year or so. In the past, it was very easy to change the components of a monthly shipment. This year, Tea Runners is working through Crate Joy and the process to make changes is much more complicated. I gave up and just enjoyed whatever tea was sent to me but I would have much preferred a simple way to sub out one or two selections each month. The tea is wonderful. The process, not so much. Hence 4 stars instead of 5. Please go back to the direct, simple way of switching out selections!
I have received two boxes so far and I have been very happy with all the different teas. Excellent flavor and it is nice trying out new types of tea. I highly recommend for tea lovers!
