Thank you for your question. Yes, the subscription can be paid in

checked with an online currency converter and a month by month

vary day by day.

Vintage Teatime Subscription Box
Great British Teabreak Subscription Box
Thank you so much, just placed my order!
Q: I imagine this box is based in the UK, would there be addition shipping cost to get it out to the US?Asked by Court M., December 2019
Yes, there is a delivery charge of £17 GB pounds per month for a USA address
The box itself was slightly battered but the absolutely lovely china set inside made it to the other side of the world without a scratch.
The china is so beautiful I just couldn’t resist immediately using it for a nice afternoon tea with the ginger biscuits (after a quick wash of course). My little teapot doesn’t quite match the vintage set but luckily the tablecloth did.
Likely one of if not my favorite box! I love that the owner is personal- with emails about her home and her country as well as quick updates and personal touches. The pictures alone say it all- the chocolate was divine! The soap- I LOVE! and obviously the china tea set is just lovely! Every little goodie, the book and the china set was perfect!
This is absolutely THE box I most look forward to receiving! Packaging and shipping has been super awesome - I live on the other side of the planet on a tiny island in the central Pacific Ocean, and every item in every box has arrived in pristine condition. Words cannot describe how lovely the china is - very special. The books are unique and great reads, and the 'posh biscuits' and extra treats have been wonderful. Oh and the tea varieties are unique and fabulous too - every one has been a flavor or brand I've never tried (or even seen) before. Gillian is a brilliant hostess/curator and so helpful if you have a question. You cannot go wrong with this subscription!
Honestly, this is one of the best boxes that I've ever purchased. Not only did it come surprisingly early (I'm in America and this is curated in the UK) but it was also so lovely to open up.
I'm a big book person, so I originally had some pause since this isn't my usual box. It doesn't so much focus on the books as much as the teas and tea sets. But I am so glad that I gave it a chance because it was honestly awesome to open it up and see the beautiful teacup and saucer along with a cake plate.
I've always been in love with cups - it's a weird quirk of mine. Maybe I want to be prepared for the day that someone of royal descent comes barging into my house. Or maybe I've just watch Pride and Prejudice too many times. Either way, if you enjoy beautiful teaware than you'll like this subscription.
It really comes with a lot more than is pictured with a box of cookies and the shipper even put little candies in my teacup! I love surprises.
Received my first box on Friday and it was perfect! My daughter and myself had wanted to try this box for ages and I had mentioned it when subscribing. When we unboxed everything there was even a little note and a treat just for my daughter in the box. Absolutely love the whole concept and look forward to filling up my cupboard with unique tea cups and plates. :)
I got my first box and opened it yesterday. It was truly lovely and I adored everything in the box. The book looks so wonderful. The cup and two(!) plates are divine! Everything was blue and white and silver and I so appreciate the way you matched the colors. Thank you for the care you take in selecting the items, and for the effort you make to keep packaging green. I'm so happy I signed up for your club. I wish you all good things in this new year.
Absolutely adore this box. Everything was just great. The selection of tea was a nice mixture of familiar and different. The biscuits were not overly sweet and great companion to the tea. The cup, saucer and plate are so lovely. You can tell they are not brand new while also remaining a quality perfect for everyday use. From the book to the surprise gift on to the candy and all else contained in, this box delivers. Looking forward to my next one.
I absolutely love this box. I didn’t know what to expect at first, this is my first time receiving a subscription box. And then it being from the UK I had my doubts about how long it was gonna take to arrive in the US. But I was so THRILLED, I love the book, the tea cup set, the handkerchiefs the biscuits and the assorted teas. The best part is I didn’t have to wait long.
A fantastic subscription service. Beautiful tea cups, fun books, a nice selection of treats and, best of all, a monthly newsletter with the owner. Perfect for Anglophiles and tea fans.
I couldn't get to my tea kettle fast enough after receiving this box. Even though I was expecting a china tea cup and saucer and plate, tea, and cookies, It was SO FUN opening the box to see what the china pattern would be and what the tea flavors would be. All the goodies, all together. Just add hot water and let the pampering relaxation begin!! Things were wrapped up inside and it seemed like I just kept finding things! Books are difficult to choose for someone else, but Gillian found one that I'm interested in reading. PLUS the extra surprise - I'm not telling what it was. :D I love love love Loooooooooooove this box. I'll be looking forward to receiving this each month.
