The presentation is very simple, just a couple of cards on top. There was an item that provided some cushioning this month.

I received a card from Tea Box Express.

There is some info on how to share your box pictures on social media for a chance to win a free box!

I received another card from one of the vendors featured this month.

Everything in my box!

The Coin Laundry Kitchen Towel ($12) is made of 100% cotton and the design is screen-printed on the towel. I love forest trees and think this is a cute towel.

Ticket Chocolate Peppermint Chocolate Bark ($6) Peppermint bark is pretty popular around the holidays. This limited-time treat features swirls of dark and white chocolate plus natural peppermint and crushed peppermint candy.


TeaPigs Matcha Latte ($3.60) I received two instant tea pouches of matcha tea. One pack is flavored with cocoa and the other with spices. Just mix with hot milk of your choice and stir the heck out of it.

I am not a fan of matcha so I will share these with someone who is.

Piper & Leaf Artisan Tea Co. Cherry Christmas ($10.99) I do like a good pun, and black tea, plus the ingredients sound fun!

Steeping instructions were on the back of the bag.

I found the product wrapped inside a plastic zipper pouch. The ingredients are Ceylon black tea, coconut flakes, almond flakes, blackberries, blueberries, currants, raisins, raspberries, strawberries, hibiscus, and vanilla.

I used 1.5 teaspoons of tea to 8 ounces of boiling water and steeped for 5 minutes. I’m not usually a fan of hibiscus but it was used well in this mix, and although I added sugar to tame the sourness of the hibiscus, I didn’t need milk as the tea itself wasn’t bitter. I thought the flavor was delicious, like a cherry berry mix, not quite an herbal but not really black tea either. I’m a fan!

I thought this was a cute box from Tea Box Express! I was worried I wouldn’t like the main tea but it turned out to be very tasty and I hope to see this brand again soon! The towel is perfect for the season, as is the peppermint bark. I’m sure the matcha is good, I’m not a fan but I think the convenience factor is there.
