The Kyoto Jewelry Collection (choose 1 out of 4)

Springtime in Kyoto is one of the most beautiful times of the year: the city comes alive with sakura (cherry blossoms), pink petals falling through the air like warm snow, and many people go flower viewing. Intricate sensu or Ogi (folding fans) can be seen as the heat grows, and at many kinds of ceremonies. Carry a piece of Kyoto from this Kevia jewelry selection! Choose from 1 of 4 options when you customize.

Kevia Matcha Tea!

To carry a bit of that sweetness and Zen home to you, this JourneeBox includes two packets of matcha. Made in Japan, this matcha is perfect for contemplative mornings or slow summer afternoons. 100% green tea leaves, use this matcha to make tea, or add to your cooking for an authentic Kyoto flavor.

    Did anyone else get two shipment emails? Hoping they aren’t accidentally sending me two boxes!

  • Amy G

    Got an email last night saying customization was open and inviting me to subscribe. Umm, I am a subscriber. I emailed to request the link and password and haven’t heard back yet. Just crossing my fingers my choices aren’t sold out when I hear back.

    • Brandy

      Amy – I had this experience too – waiting for a response to my email!

      • Amy

        I’m glad I’m not the only one!
        It’s frustrating when we’ve looked forward to this box for so long. I texted my husband last night with “big news—here’s a hint: 🏯” and he immediately responded “Kyoto box customization is open??” 😂. Then when I realized I couldn’t do it yet, I was, shall we say, disappointed.

  • Mary L.

    Heads up that customization emails have gone out. Mine was in my spam folder.

    Another spoiler was announced on 7/30: Papaya Seaweed Face Scrub.

  • Lauren

    This is one of the boxes I’m *always* looking at but not buying. To be fair, I’m kind of on box restriction between a big move and a new job so I’m stretching my peenies a bit more than normal. But every time I look at the spoilers/reviews for this box, I get excited.

  • KatS

    I like all the spoilers for this box. Might have to spring for it. I’ve been obsessing over the Furoshiki bags in particular.

  • Kc

    I love the video add ons- wish they were both free. Interesting concept that adds to the experience.

  • Mia

    Looks like a nice box!
