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 November 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 November box, along with brief descriptions, steeping times, and coupon codes for each one.
Zhi Jasmine Green Tea
I was excited to see these sachets included because jasmine is one of my all time favorite tea flavors! Zhi Tea was founded in Austin by die-hard tea lovers with a love and deep respect for traditional farming and fair trade practices. Jasmine Green combines organic Chinese green tea leaves with jasmine blossoms for a clean, fragrant experience. Mmm!
Full Leaf Tea Co. Organic Mint Cocoa Pu-erh
According to the info card, pu-erh has been shown to aid in stress reduction and weight loss. This blend includes a combination of organic pu-erh, organic cacao nibs, and organic spearmint for a sweet, minty flavor.
Pinky Up Confetti Cake Herbal Tea
Ooh, cake! Well, in tea form anyway. 😉 This colorful, caffeine-free blend features a flavorful combination of pineapple, chamomile, orange peel, safflower, and mango. Yum!
The Tea Spot Blood Orange Smoothie
Another caffeine-free selection, this tea is said to be reminiscent of orange creamsicles and Orange Julius smoothies. Mmm! It includes South African red rooibos, orange peel, hibiscus, rosehips, safflowers, rose petals, and natural orange & vanilla flavors.
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 didn’t count but I see at least 12 in the photo above). 🙂
I really enjoyed my introduction to Sips By! I love that they curate the teas according to each subscriber’s individual preferences — which they did a great job of with my November box. I’m not a huge fan of black or licorice-flavored teas, so it was nice to opt out of receiving those types. I didn’t do a cost breakdown, but I think the price is fair for such a customized experience. 🙂 — Remember, for a limited time you can save $5 on your first box with coupon code “2ROSEBUDS“!
I love tea, especially this time of year and it’s fun to find different flavors that I might not try on my own.
I would really love to win because I enjoy teas and I love trying out new flavors of tea.
I love that the blends are based on your profile. I love tea and I am interested in trying new blends, but I hate mint and it seems like every blend I see has mint in it! At least with this subscription I know I would not receive any mint tea.
I want to win so I can try new tea!
