Everything in my box! Tea Box Express does a great job at presentation! I received my items in a sturdy cardboard box and everything was cushioned with shredded paper. Tea Box Express aims to “deliver a tea party to your door every month.”
There was a card inside that told how you could win a free box by sharing your photos on social media!
Nepal Tea Kumari Gold ($12.99) This organic tea is sourced from the Kanchanjangha Tea Estate in Nepal.
There was info on the package about the good works Nepal Tea does with the proceeds from sales of its teas, plus brewing instructions.
According to Nepal Teas, this choice “contains a high volume of essential oils, which is prominent as a thin layer of oil quickly surfaces the tea when brewed.”
It did indeed steep into a beautiful golden amber shade. I caught flowery notes and experienced no bitterness and only slight astringency. This was smooth and bright and I didn’t even need to add sugar, which is saying a lot, coming from me!
Aren’t these the prettiest Chocolate Covered Oreo’s from The Capital Candy Jar ($6)?
There were three different chocolate coatings: white, milk, and dark.
These were perfect for March and so incredibly delicious. I don’t normally eat Oreo’s but these were exceptional.
Quin Smith Tea Lord Bergamot Caramels ($6.67) are hand made in small batches in Oregon and have Lord Bergamot tea (which is classier than Earl Grey) as an ingredient.
I passed these candies around at work and we all agreed that they were slightly bitter, but not in an overbearing way, and the caramel was buttery and smooth. The bergamot gave them an interesting flavor.
G&H Darjeeling Tea Strainer ($4.99 + $7.95 shipping on Amazon) I love the cute teapot on the handle of this handy tea strainer! I dislike using traditional in-cup tea strainers and disposable tea bags for my loose leaf teas since I feel that the tea needs room to unfurl and release its flavor. Just steep your tea and then place this over an empty cup and pour and catch.
I loved my Tea Box Express, as usual! The tea was a wonderful discovery and those Oreo’s were over the top! The strainer will come in handy and my friends loved the caramels. My box had a value of around $30.65. This box always impresses me with its curation and top-notch items and I look forward to discovering the delights within every time it shows up!
