Tease Tea Duchess of Earl Tease Tea is based out of Canada and has the cutest names for each of its teas. Duchess of Earl is a feminine take on the classic Earl Grey tea. It has the required black tea and bergamot but also contains rose petals and cornflowers, so it smells and looks lovely, and that’s before I even steeped it!

The back of the bag had steeping instructions, including water temperature, amount of tea, and steeping time.

It’s just so pretty and colorful! It had a pleasant flavor and was slightly bitter, maybe due to using boiling water. It is very similar to traditional Earl Grey, but just has that something extra.

I couldn’t find Takes 2 to Mango on the Tease site since it is their newest blend but it has a coupon code just for Tea Box Express subscribers! Black tea, mango, ginger, plus calendula and sunflower petals make this a feast for the senses.

Aren’t these teas simply lovely? Takes 2 to Mango was also a bit bitter, but most black tea that I steep with boiling water turns out that way – I simply add sugar and milk and enjoy my tea. The flavor was certainly more robust than the Duchess of Earl and had a spicy flavor from the ginger. It wasn’t as fruity as I would have expected.

I love the color coordination of this month’s box! Here’s the Tease Silicone Tea Infuser in Hot Pink!

Is that a tea leaf at the top? Cute!

Simply spoon your loose leaf tea into the stainless steel ball, put the silicone top back on, and place in your cup. It includes a drip tray in case you like to resteep your leaves.

I’ve tried lots of honey straws but never a honey spoon! Melville Candy Flower Honey Spoon is supposed to go into a hot cup of tea and it will melt and sweeten your cuppa. I tried to eat mine like a lollipop but it tasted funny – maybe it’s better in a cup of tea.

A Couple of Squares Cookies in Happy Hour According to A Couple of Squares, I should be able to find these in a Williams and Sonoma or Sur la table store, since they didn’t carry them online.

Awww, a snack that smiles back! Me and the younger daughter thought they were cute but my older daughter quickly claimed them as her own.

I think this was the cutest and most feminine Tea Box Express – perfect for me and my two girly daughters! I have wanted to try Tease Teas and was happy to have two to sample this month. This box always impresses me with its curation and top-notch items and I look forward to enjoying my tea party in a box every month!
