July 2016 Tea Box Express unboxing time!
If you’re not aware, Tea Box Express sends subscribers a selection of high quality loose leaf tea, as well as 3-4 fun tea-related goodies.

Let’s see what’s in the July 2016 Tea Box Express box!
A peek inside. — Looks like another good one!
Tea Box Express doesn’t include info cards (I’m not sure why?), so I’ll just jump right to the goods…
Oliver Pluff & Co. Blackberry Tea ($12.95) – A 3-ounce tin of flavored black tea consisting of orange pekoe black tea leaves, blackberry leaves, and blackberry flavor. This fruity blend can be enjoyed both hot or iced. I tend to gravitate more to green tea, but I do make exceptions for fruit-infused black blends. 🙂
Oliver Pluff & Co. Cacao Mint Tea ($10) – Well this looks interesting! According to the label, Martha Washington enjoyed drinking cacao shell tea at breakfast, which she made from roasted shells. This canister contains a blend of her beloved loose roasted cacao shells, along with real peppermint leaves to add a hint of mint to the chocolatey infusion. I can’t wait to try it!
Grey Ghost Bakery Almond Toffee Cookies (~$2) – All natural, made from scratch buttery cookies blended with decadent almond toffee hailing from Dottie’s Toffee. Grey Ghost Bakery is located in South Carolina, where they make a variety of cookies using recipes that have been passed down for generations.
Grey Ghost Bakery Chocolate Cayenne Cookies (~$2) – One of their best sellers, these cookies feature a sweet & spicy blend of chocolate and cayenne. Sugar crystals are sprinkled on top for good measure.
Grey Ghost Bakery Molasses Spice Cookies (~$2) – You can enjoy autumn year-round with these molasses spice cookies. They’re made with molasses, ginger, vanilla, and other yummy cookie stuff. 😉
Snap Mesh Ball Tea Infuser (~$4) – A convenient, easy way to enjoy loose leaf tea. Just squeeze the handle to open up the mesh strainer, fill it with tea leaves, and brew!
Another great assortment of tea & treats from Tea Box Express! I’m excited to try the teas (especially the cacao shell!) and my kiddos will definitely enjoy the cookies. The mesh strainer was also a nice addition to round out the box. 🙂 Remember — for a limited time you can save 20% on your first month with coupon code “ROSEBUDS20“!
