Tea subscription - just for you
Tea subscription - just for you
Invest in your wellbeing, every day
Your monthly tea subscription helps you take healthy time out for yourself, and make that a habit each and every day. It offers you a regular invitation to feel restored, calm and centred. With each box, you'll experience fascinating teas with captivating leaf shapes, flavours and aromas. It's not only the nutrient content of tea that is good for you, the simple act of preparing and drinking good tea is a grounding experience. We believe investing in your wellbeing is not a luxury; it's smart and, these days, it's a necessity.
What you receive with your subscription
In the first week of every month, you’ll receive a beautiful box filled with two different specialty teas, each with a unique fragrance and flavour (see below for this month's teas). Your first box comes with our tea guide to help you steep and taste your teas. Every single tea is tasted and chosen by our found and tea master Anna Kydd.
If you’re a regular tea-drinker, drinking 1-2 cups a day, the quantity of tea (2 x 20g pouches) will last you around half the month. We focus on high-quality, small-batch teas and each month, we choose one darker tea (dark, black or highly-oxidised oolong) and one lighter style tea (lightly-oxidised oolong, green, yellow or white) for the box. So there should always be one tea that suits your taste buds, plus another to help you experience a new flavour.
Who is the subscription for?
If you consider yourself a 'foodie'; if you are curious and love trying new flavours or taking part in food and beverage tastings; and if you are interested in learning more about tea then our tea subscription is perfect for you. With specialty tea, the flavours you experience may be different to what you are used to. So, when you drink it, you will have a wonderful experience if are curious and choose to adopt an adventurous palette.
If you love the comfort of your tea tasting the same each time, your best option is to stick to your normal tea brand rather than join our subscription.
Choose from three options for your first box:
Option 1: Small box ~ $29 (rural delivery surcharge of $4 applies)
~ teas only (2 x 20g pouches)
Option 2: Large box ~ $59* (save $20) - RECOMMENDED!
~ teas as above and our tea glass infuser and long-handled teaspoon, packaged in our large gift box, to help you prepare and drink your tea with ease.
Option 3: Ultra-large box ~ $359* (save $48)
~ teas, tea glass infuser, long-handled teaspoon (as in Option 2) as well as the Fellow Stagg EKG temperature variable kettle and a Rhino pocket scale. These are the essential tools all serious tea drinkers need to expertly prepare and enjoy their tea.
*Options 2 and 3 are special rates just for tea subscribers. All subsequent deliveries after the first box will be the small box with two teas at $29 per month (NZ delivery; rural surcharge of $4 applies).
We believe that knowledge is powerful; that by discovering and learning about different types of tea, you will have a more enriching experience. By purchasing the monthly subscription box you give us permission to add your email address to our mailing list, so Anna can send you information about your teas each month. Please let us know if you wish to opt-out.
In our December 2023 box:
White tea, China
Flavour: soft & sweet, floral and citrus
Gong Mei, ‘Royal Tribute Eyebrow’, was made famous in the Qing dynasty in China, being served within the imperial court. It is made from the Cai Cha cultivar and is a two or three-leaf and a bud pluck. When infused, these leaves have a soft, sweet citrusy and biscuity fragrance with a supple body and notes of raw sugar, lavender and dried rose with a herbaceous finish. They were harvested on 28 March 2023 in Jing Ping Village, Zhenghe county.
Mi Lan Xiang, 'Honey Aroma'
Black tea, China
Flavour: sweet, woody, fruity
Mi Lan Xiang translates to ‘honey aroma’, reflecting the sweet, raw honey fragrance of this tea. Harvested on 28 March 2023, these leaves come from Da Hu village in the famous Phoenix Mountain area, Guangdong, China. The fragrance of this tea is enchanting as soon as the hot water hits the leaves. The infusion is heady and opulent with notes of black currant, honey, wood and aniseed.
These teas come from Wuyi Origin tea company, led by Cindy Chen and her husband, Zhou Shiwu. Cindy and Zhou value quality tea craftsmanship and love sharing the experience of their region’s special teas.
