Let’s see what’s in the February 2017 Tea Box Express box!
A peek inside.
Tea Box Express doesn’t include a detailed info card, but they do hope you enjoy their teas and treats nonetheless.
Metolius Tea & Apothecary makes their teas using high quality, organic ingredients while also supporting local agriculture by using ingredients grown in their home base of central Oregon. This Cardamom Rose Mate contains an all organic blend of Yerba mate, cinnamon, rose petals, pink peppercorns, and cardamom. Its flavor is described as “earthy and sweet”.
Herbal teas are typically my favorite type — especially those with ginger and/or lemongrass — so this one sounds perfect! — It’s a 100% organic blend of green rooibos, pear, ginger, lemongrass, lavender, and vanilla. I’ll definitely be enjoying this one first. 🙂
I don’t think I’ve ever seen such brightly colored truffles! These adorable lip-shaped chocolates are made with spicy dark chocolate ganache filling infused with ginger, honey, and French Espelette chili pepper. The filling is hand-piped into a dark chocolate shell and painted a bright red with shimmering gold glitter. Fancy!
Two handmade tea-themed cards from Etsy seller TeaThoughtsShop were included in celebration of Valentine’s Day and the month of love. 🙂 Both cards had colorful illustrations with cute “tea pun” greetings on the front and plenty of space for your own message on the inside. Matching envelopes were also included.
An Earl Grey flavored lip balm made with organic ingredients including sweet almond oil, coconut oil, beeswax, and Vitamin E. It’s all natural and scented with pure essential oils.
Tea Box Express is always such a fun subscription box to open. I love that they include not only tea, but also fun tea-related goodies. 🙂 Remember — for a limited time you can save 20% on your first month with coupon code “ROSEBUDS20“!
