Q: What is the difference between the Christmas box and the normal boxes?Asked by Jessica T., November 2020
Sorry, the Christmas boxes should not have been visible on Cratejoy. They are sold only through our website. There is no difference, only the delivery date.
Q: Is there an ingredient list for each tea? I have an allergy to cinnamon and Death by Tea is not the way I wanna go.Asked by Rebecca M., October 2020
Yes, we post a list of ingredients on each packet of tea we ship.
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.
Bought this as a gift for my wife and she is always happy to see what is coming each month.
I was gifted a subscription as a Christmas present, and have thoroughly enjoyed each of the teas that I have received since. Each tea is unique and the black and herbal teas are really well balanced. My favorite teas, though, have to be the pure teas--each has so many subtleties of flavor that I'm forced to sip it slow to enjoy every bit!
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.
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'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
This was a gift for my daughter, actually 2 daughters at different times. Both of them LOVE this subscription. The current one keeps telling me that these teas truly are better than others, and she's quite a tea-drinker!
LOVE! Absolutely love. Great packaging, delicious high quality teas!
I have been an avid fan for a couple years and have always gotten the teas from their website and decided to try a random box. Love love love their teas. Plus... One of the owners played Kaylee on Firefly ...so that's an added bonus.
