A Sneak Peek at our August Boxes

Hello Tea Runners,

We hope you’re enjoying your summer and soaking up the sun with some refreshing teas at the ready!

We’re excited to offer you some of our favorite teas both tried and true as well as some new and enticing varieties.

If you’re looking to customize your box this month we have a couple recommendations…

Spring Trellis was surprisingly good. This one has seemingly simple ingredients - and in all honesty, with it’s bulky raspberry leaves, it’s not the nicest tea to look at - but it steeps a very refreshing and well balanced iced it.

Butterfly Mango Dragon Fruit White is a fun tea that turns blue when steeped. It’s summery and sweet. If you liked our White Peach Tea, Peach Ginger Detox Gold, Bliss, or Nirvana, you’ll probably like this one too.

Black Gold Biluochun is fresh from the 2019 harvest and is my (Charlie’s) personal favorite kinds of tea: pure black Chinese tea. It’s in all the boxes except Herbal, but as one of my favs I thought I’d give it a mention.

This fall we’ll be bringing back some of our very popular and sought-after teas, such as Lemon Drop Black, Black Dragon Pearls, Jalinga Estate Assam, and more. We also have lots of new ones coming.

Lastly, we’re going to start offering additional options for customization this fall. As of now you can only swap teas for what’s in the other monthly boxes. We’re going to expand this and offer more options, including teas that aren’t in other boxes, so you can customize the perfect box for you every month.

Enjoy this month’s selections!
