Here's the Box Breakdown
first look in the chai leaves box
Our first glimpse inside the Chai Leaves Subscription Box. We thought initially that the box the tea came in was cool, it was a cigar type box with a magnet. But once we opened the box we realized each individual box was the same way! So cool!


So what is all this stuff?


Our box insert


These tea bags are so nice to have - especially if you are using a to go mug! 


le'mango punch tea
This herbal tea originates in Spain and Thailand and tastes wonderful hot or iced. This blend includes Apple, Rosehip and Lemon pieces, as well as Hibiscus petals. 

We love both herbal and caffeinated teas - so we were very glad that an herbal tea was included in the Chai Leaves Subscription Box

This aromatic tea smells intoxicating of lemon and because of the hibiscus brews a beautiful color! We like that the ingredients of each are listed on the boxes - it makes it really easy to store them!


strawberries tea
This tea is made from Green Tea sourced in the Hunan Province of China. A blend of Green Tea, Papaya and Strawberry pieces makes this is a good balance of fruity and earthy. 

We think these may be the most beautiful teas that we've ever received and love looking at them!


rose tea
Being the floral lovers that we are - our favorite tea just so happens to be Rose Tea. So you can imagine our excitement at seeing this gorgeous tea show up in our Chai Leaves Box

A base of Sri Lankan Black Tea paired with Rosehip Pieces, Rose Petals and Blackberry leaves make this an incredibly indulgent and fragrant drink

We decided we would drink this tea first and couldn't get over how gorgeous it was!


The tea is wonderfully aromatic and soothing. Love it!


thai lemon ginger tea
The final tea in this month's box is this Thai Lemon Ginger blend. With an ingredients list consisting of Rooibos, Ginger, Pineapple, Lime and Lemon Pieces, Lime and Lemongrass Leaves and Calendula Petals this is probably the most exotic and complex of the teas in this box. 

Love how the Calendula Petals gives this tea a pretty yellow pop!

This tea has a lot of depth. Our first wave of flavor is the warm and rich rooibos and then to the pops of citrus and finally, the ginger leaves our belly just a little warm. It makes an excellent cup of tea!


So in summary


We look for three things in a subscription box; quality, curation, and presentation. The Chai Leaves Subscription is an amazing box for tea discovery. If you are interested in exotic flavors and you like tea this is definitely a box for you! The presentation is incredible. We can honestly say that we've never received a tea box that had so much attention to detail and boxed in such an elegant way! The quality is phenomenal. Each tea is made with REAL and ORGANIC ingredients and the flavors are incredible. The curation is excellent. This box gives us such a variety of teas that we couldn't get bored even if we tried over the next month! Love Chai Leaves!
