June 2018 Sips By review time!
If you haven’t heard, Sips By is a subscription box that sends you a personalized selection of teas on a monthly basis. Each box will contain 4 premium teas — enough to make 15 cups — that are specifically chosen for YOU based on your Sips By profile. Upon signing up, you’ll be asked a series of questions to determine which types of tea you’d most enjoy. You can specify your preferences when it comes to the benefits you look for in a tea (stress relief, weight loss, sleep aid, taste, energy, etc), preferred flavors (unflavored, citrus, berry, mint, floral, earthy, sweet, etc.), and more. You’ll also be able to rate your teas on their site to help them curate more matches for you in the future.

Let’s see what’s in my June 2018 Sips By box!
Everything was shipped in a small box with the Sips By logo on top.
A peek inside!
A personalized info card listed all of the teas included in my June box, along with brief descriptions, steeping times, and coupon codes.
According to the info card, this tea is named after Massinissa, an ancient Berber king who fought to unify the Maghreb — declaring that “Africa belongs to Africans”. It’s comprised of a citrusy blend of green tea, ginger, lemongrass, lemon peel, orange blossom, and natural flavor. I LOVE light, citrus-infused green tea so this is right up my alley. 🙂
This caffeine-free herbal tea provides a natural energy boost from nutrients, not stimulants. It’s made with antioxidant-rich ingredients including organic carob, organic rooibos, sweet blackberry leaves, black pepper, and cloves. A nice, acid-free alternative to coffee.
Woo, jasmine pearls!! This is hands-down my all-time favorite flavor/variety of tea. The cute little “pearls” are made by mixing jasmine flowers with freshly picked green tea to give them their distinct aroma and flavor. The flowers are removed prior to forming the pearls, leaving their lovely scent behind. The tea is incredibly flavorful and can be re-steeped multiple times.
This certified organic tea features tulsi (aka “Holy Basil), a plant that’s regarded as sacred in India for its restorative and spiritual properties. The caffeine-free blend also includes chamomile, rose, lemon myrtle, and stevia leaf for a hint of sweetness. It’s formulated to be soothing, stress-relieving, and “magical”. 😉
Sips By Tea Bags
If your box contains loose leaf tea you’ll also receive a reusable muslin cloth tea bag, along with a handful of disposable bags. If you’re lazy like me and don’t like cleaning out traditional tea balls/strainers, these are an awesome alternative.
I was SO excited to see my beloved jasmine pearl tea in June’s Sips By box! I haven’t indulged in it for quite a while so it was a nice surprise. 😀 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “2ROSEBUDS“!
