Each box arrives neatly packaged with an informational sheet.

Whistling Kettle’s January 2017 Caffeine Free Tea Club featured Nutcracker Rooibos Tea.

The limited-edition Nutcracker Rooibos tea starts with a rooibos base. To it, Whistling Kettle adds apples, cocoa nibs, caramel flavor, marigold flowers and hazelnut and chestnut flavors.

I appreciated the seeping directions that were included on the Nutcracker Rooibos label – for a 6 oz cup of tea, place 1 tsp of tea into 6 oz of boiling water for 7-10 minutes. I couldn’t wait to open up the bag and get started!

As soon as I did, the tea’s creamy, caramel aroma hit my nose and I couldn’t wait to try it out!

This sweet caramel tea was deliciously indulgent. Boasting the sweetness of caramel and apples along with the mellow earthiness of rooibos tea, hazelnuts, and chestnuts, this was a tea I could enjoy at any time, day or night. It would make a nice accompaniment to a danish at breakfast or a dessert at night.

What a fun subscription! I very much enjoyed this shipment from The Whistling Kettle, and look forward to trying their other offerings in the months to come!

    I would like to speak to someone regarding my tea of the month. I received it last year (2016) and enjoyed all of them until the end of the year and they were lighter tea and not my favorites. It was a gift from my daughter and son-in-law. I put it on my list for 2017 and received it again. I

    I have been very unhappy with it. I only like the brown teas and have not had hardly any of them. The ones I am receiving I can hardly drink. So, I am writing to tell you how disappointed I am and find out if you can make any changes for me. I would appreciate it. Thank you
