May 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.

Subscriptions are $15/month with free shipping within the US. — For a limited time, you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “2ROSEBUDS“!
Let’s see what’s in my May 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 May box, along with brief descriptions, steeping times, and coupon codes.
These individually wrapped, single silken sachet teas contain full leaves of Ti Quan Yin Oolong that are infused with the tangy flavor of pomegranate. They have a medium caffeine level and can be enjoyed both hot and iced.
I used to LOVE Fruity Pebbles cereal, so I’m excited to try this fruity & floral tea. It features a blend of green tea, pineapple bits, sweet blackberry leaves, papaya bits, rose petals, raspberry bits, strawberry bits, and natural flavor. Slenderizer tea is designed to suppress your appetite and boost your metabolism, helping you maintain a healthy weight.
A relaxing herbal tea designed to help relieve tension and stress. Ingredients (all organic!) include rooibos leaf, chamomile flower, lemon balm leaf, lemongrass, lavender flower, and other all natural plants/herbs. It’s also caffeine free for optimal relaxation. 🙂
Another relaxing tea, this one goes a step further by helping you fall asleep and stay asleep. 100% organic ingredients include rooibos, valerian root, peppermint, chamomile, and lavender. It’s (obviously) caffeine-free and has a light, minty flavor.
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.
