If you read my empties posts, you’ll notice I usually have at least a few bags of loose leaf tea. I normally get them from David’s Tea but since they started using artificial flavoring, I’ve been trying to branch out and find some alternatives.
Recently I discovered My Tea Box, which is a tea subscription box based from Canada! The monthly cost is $24.99 and includes shipping and taxes. I received the March 2017 box for review so let’s take a look at what blends I received.
First off, they totally nailed the packaging. The box came in a super slim cardboard package with very cute paper products. Inside, there was a card with matching color scheme welcoming me to the subscription. Each month, you’ll receive 3 teas. I also received tea filters and also the cutest tea spoon. Attention to detail is apparent as each item is carefully packaged and presented!
The three teas this month are Sugar Shack Smokey Maple (black tea) Peppermint Matcha, and Strawberry Sunshine (herbal). Let’s take a look at each in detail.
I started getting into loose leaf tea because of the unique blends and flavors available. So I was super excited to see a smokey maple flavored tea in this box. Even though I’ve tried a ton of blends, I’ve actually never had a tea that is a smokey flavor. This tea pays tribute to sugar shack time in Canada.
When I first opened the package, I was taken back by the smokey smell, it was a lot stronger than expected. It smelled like a camp fire and I was instantly excited to try and brew this. Although it is a very strong smokey smell, it actually tastes quite mellow and was a delicious black tea with a hint of sweetness.
