December 2017 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.
Disclosure: I received this box for review purposes. I was not compensated in any way. All opinions are my own. Post may contain affiliate and/or referral links.
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 December 2017 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 December box, along with brief descriptions, steeping times, and coupon codes for each one.
An ideal choice for the holiday season, this leafy white tea is blended with dried apple bits, cranberries, cinnamon stick, and other natural flavors. It has a nice, clean flavor and can be enjoyed both hot or iced.
More white tea! This low-caffeine blend includes apple pieces, Chinese green tea, lemongrass, elderflower, orange blossom, hibiscus, rosehip, orange peel, and natural flavoring. I love light & fruity teas, so these will be enjoyed in no time.
This limited edition, seasonal holiday tea is flavored with natural peppermint as well as real pieces of candy cane! It’s green tea based and also contains freeze dried marshmallows — which I can hopefully pick out before brewing to make it vegan-friendly. 🙂
A soothing herbal tea designed to help you relax and get a good night’s sleep. The 100% natural blend includes ginkgo biloba, gotu kola, rosemary, passion flower, green tea, lemongrass, mugwort, peppermint, and valerian root.
BONUS: Pukka Revitalise
December’s box also included a bonus tea from Pukka. “Revitalise” features an organic blend of cinnamon bark, orange peel, elderflower, cardamom pod, licorice root, ginger root, Sencha green tea, spearmint leaf, clove bud, and black peppercorn. Needless to say, it was very flavorful!
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. I’ve been using the ones I received in last month’s box, so I’m happy to get a fresh supply. 🙂
Another great selection of teas from Sips By! I absolutely LOVE how they customize each box to your own personal preferences. They’ve done a great job with mine! 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “2ROSEBUDS“!
