Field to Cup is a subscription box that sends you an assortment of high quality loose leaf teas every month.
Each box will include a sampling of 7 different teas — 10 grams of each — enough to make 28 or more cups. The teas are packaged in resealable pouches that keep them fresh by protecting them from moisture and light. You’ll also receive a steeping guide with information on how to prepare teas in a variety of different ways. If you receive a tea you don’t love, you can replace it for free in next month’s box. When you discover a tea you do love, you can buy more of it for 40% off in their online shop.

Subscriptions are $24.97/month with free shipping within the US.
Let’s see what’s in the October 2016 Field to Cup box!
Everything was shipped in a small box via First Class Mail.
A peek inside!
Pasted to the inside lid was a list of tips for brewing the perfect cup of tea.
An enclosed card welcomed me to the Field to Cup family and stressed the importance of sharing feedback on each of the teas.
Black Teas: Three different black tea blends were included. Chocolate Cashew, Dried Apricot, and Cinnamon Orange. Chocolate Cashew is nutty tea made with blackberry leaves, nuts, and real caramel pieces (not safe for vegans 🙁 ). Dried Apricot includes a sweet blend of dried mango, apricot essence, and marigold blossoms. Finally, Cinnamon Orange is a warm blend of black tea leaves, sweet orange pieces, and real cinnamon oil.
Herbal Tea: Berry Flame – I love herbal teas so I was happy to see one included in the box. This is a 100% organic blend of ginger, ginseng, licorice root, hibiscus, rose hips, orange, and tangerine. Yum!
Fruit Tea: Roasted Almond – A colorful, sweet blend of roasted almonds with apples, beetroot, and cinnamon. A great tea for autumn!
Wellness Tea: First Response – Wellness teas are always good to have on hand in the cooler months when I’m bound to catch some sort of cold/illness. This one is a blend of echinacea with peppermint, elderberry, and other soothing ingredients.
Green Teas: Two green teas were included, one of which looked to be a bonus sample. Jasmine Lavender is another 100% organic blend that features jasmine green tea, lavender buds, hojicha, and citrus flavoring. Jasmine is one of my absolute favorite types of tea, so I was happy to see it included here. Also included was a smaller packet of Berry Jam Green Tea which featured green tea leaves with pieces of real blueberries.
Field to Cup is a great subscription box for sampling a variety of different loose leaf teas without breaking the bank. There was a nice assortment of black, green, & fruit blends, so there was something for everyone’s personal tastes.
