I was excited to give it a try since I usually stick with Jasmine and green tea.
When you open up the box, there are 4 packaged loose leaf teas.

- Organic White Rose
- Organic Lavendar Earl Grey
- Organic Chai Rooibos

As tea is hard to prepare if you don’t know what you’re doing. It can really ruin the flavour of the tea. There are tips on how to prepare the teas. Also, on each package, it will show you how much to put into a cup and how much water and for how long.
Lavendar Earl Grey is a classic tea with the hints of lavendar. It is made by rishi tea. It does contain Caffeine and it is a black tea. The info on each package has a lot of information, so you know everything about that tea.
Ingredients: Organic Fair Trade Certified™ black tea, Organic lavender flowers, natural essential oils of bergamot and lavender.
Organic Chai Rooibos is made by Gathering Place. It has a lot of different flavours going on and it is supposed to produce a calming effect. This tea is surprisingly caffeine free.
Ingredients: Rooibos Tea, ginger, cinnamon, fennel, cardamom, cloves and black pepper.
Strawberry-Champagne was an interesting flavour. It is sweet and aromatic fruit flavour.
Ingredients: Sencha green tea, carrot pieces, pineapple pieces (pineapple, sugar), strawberries, cornflowers, sunflowers, natural flavour.
Organic White Rose is very light and delicate. The smell is just amazing. You can’t use boiling water or else you’ll alter it’s taste. This was my favourite of the bunch.
Ingredients: Fair trade certified organic white tea and organic rose.
Subscription boxes have been a rage as it gives people at taste without purchasing large amounts and wasting it. Plus, you can easily order it from the comfort of your home.
