Dollar Tea Club January 2019 Review

Hello Subscription may earn compensation via links in this post. Read the full disclosure

Dollar Tea Club is a monthly subscription that sends loose-leaf teas in an amount that works for you. They have a few different plans to choose from and all of the teas are made without artificial flavors. The teas are ethically sourced through direct trade, which means better quality tea while knowing the farmers are paid reasonable wages and treated with respect. Subscriptions are fully customizable and can be changed anytime.

Hate waiting in line just to get your name spelled wrong? We’re on a journey to make exploring new tea blends fun for everyone.. yes, even coffee drinkers.

Everything in my recyclable mailer! I am reviewing The Explorer plan, which is $1 for 3 samples of tea, which is enough for 6-8 cups. A 3-pack of honey sticks is another $1.95, plus filters are $1 for 5. Shipping is extra. They offer two other plans: The Sensei and The Sommelier. Both plans include additional filters, a strainer with your first order, and varying amounts of tea based on which plan you choose.

It looks like filters will be an extra charge from now on for those who truly need them. I have a Teavana Perfectea maker so I’m not really in need of filters so that works for me!

The back of the card had a few reminders just in case you needed them.

Raw Canadian Honey Stix ($1.95) You may add honey sticks to your order. This is a convenient way to carry natural sweetener with you while on-the-go. I received 3 sticks of honey but one of them opened up during shipping and had to be discarded. Each stick holds 1 teaspoon of honey and has 15 calories. The straw is BPA-free.

Dollar Tea Club Filter Bags ($1 for 5) Dollar Tea Club sent some filters so I could get started steeping right away. These ones are larger than others I’ve tried so there’s plenty of room for the tea leaves to expand. If you aren’t into filter bags then you can use a metal or silicone steeper, strainer, or a special tea maker.

Just place the tea inside and close the top with the drawstring. These can be composted when you are finished steeping your tea.

Dollar Tea Club Swedish Mint Each tea has some useful information on the bag, such as the type of tea, ingredients, steeping time, and water temperature. What it is missing is the amount of tea to use per cup of water. I usually have to go to the website to find out how much to use but two of this month’s teas are not yet listed, so I had to guess.

According to the bag this has only green tea and natural flavors, I am assuming peppermint oil. I used 1 teaspoon of tea since it wasn’t a blend and my cup turned out very strongly flavored. It also turned out bitter, maybe I overheated my water? The flavor was almost medicinal, and although I love a good peppermint tea, I didn’t care for the flavor of this one.

Dollar Tea Club Morning Mist Here is another tea that wasn’t listed online, which is too bad because it was super tasty! It is an herbal fruit tea so no caffeine!

Look at all of those lovely colors and the aroma is just heavenly! I think I used 1 teaspoon of tea and it was very tasty. My palate is usually overwhelmed by hibiscus in teas but this one had just the right amount of tang and didn’t cause my mouth to pucker. It was very fruity and looked so pretty in my cup.

Dollar Tea Club Eggnog Europa Dollar Tea Club says this is “a medium-Rum flavored full black tea with hints of cinnamon, ginger and cloves.” Rum sounds yum!

Black tea and spices smell extremely good when mixed together. It had a very light black tea taste with no bitterness at all. It had a hint of spice in its flavor and made for an enjoyable cup.

I enjoy my cups of tea every month from Dollar Tea Club! Each bag has enough for a couple of cups of tea, more if you like to re-steep your leaves. I love exploring new flavors and this subscription lets me do just that without paying for full bags of tea that I might not like.
