February 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 February 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 February box, along with brief descriptions, steeping times, and coupon codes for each one.
A flavorful fruit/herbal blend that combines antioxidant-rich ingredients including hibiscus, elderberries, blackcurrants, cranberries, and blueberries. It’s naturally caffeine-free and has a beautiful red hue upon brewing.
Made with hand-blended and freshly ground spices, this rooibos chai features a blend of cardamom, coriander, ginger, black pepper, cloves, and rooibos from South Africa’s Cederburg Mountains. It’s 100% organic, as well as caffeine-free.
Jasmine Pearl tea is one of my very favorite types of tea. In fact, it just may be my absolute favorite. I used to buy it in bulk at one point, though it’s been quite a while since I’ve indulged in a cup. The “pearls” are composed of rolled Chinese green tea leaves scented with jasmine blossoms for a clean and quite fragrant flavor experience. So good!
More green tea! This one is flavored with raspberry & pomegranate and contains pieces of real fruit “for extra character”. Ahmad Tea is a UK-based family business that supplies tea for the Royal Collection including Buckingham Palace. Neat!
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 have quite a few tea balls and other infusers, but these bags are by far the easiest (mess-free!) way to brew.
I really enjoyed this month’s personalized Sips By box. I love green tea and was thrilled to see my all time favorite included –Jasmine Pearl. Yay! 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “2ROSEBUDS“!
