A bit about the box:
Tea tourist box delivers a surprise selection of loose leaf teas from some of the hottest artisan tea companies to your door each month. They are supplied in taster-sized portions for you to try which on average make you 3-4 teas. So the whole box contains 18-24 cups! Each tea is packaged in heat sealed resealable packets for convenience and freshness.
You can chose from 3 different options: Build your own box, themed box, or rolling monthly subscription (which you can cancel at any time). Build your own box contains 6 teas of your choice, this will be released later this month and price is to be confirmed. The themed boxes are £15 each including delivery and vary each month. Or you can chose the monthly subscription box which is £15 including delivery every month or you can order 3, 6, or 12 month boxes to make huge savings of up to 26%!

Thoughts on the different teas:
Mountain mint – This tea is exactly what the name states, very minty! It is best to re-steep the leaves at least once to achieve the best original flavour.
Blooming marvellous – I have to say this is one of my favourites from this month’s box. It is floral, sweet and fruity all mixed together. I added some honey for extra sweetness and you can enjoy it hot or cold.
Pedernales green yaupon – This yaupon is light and fresh, best suited to those times where you need to focus. Maybe whilst doing some revision or at work.
Shakti masala chai – Spicy! That is the best word to describe this tea, I could smell and taste hints of cinnamon, definitely has a kick to it! Unfortunately this tea is not my cup of tea (excuse the pun) as I prefer sweeter tastes.
Belgian chocolate rooibos – Wow, I have never tried a tea like this before. It smells divine and the taste of chocolate is not overwhelming but enough to make you feel cosy. My advice is to leave it to steep for longer if you like a stronger taste.
Breakfast in bed – Another one of my favourites this month. It is a great unusual twist on a traditional tea with hints of vanilla making it slightly sweeter. You can enjoy this as a traditional black tea or add some freshly foamed milk and some sugar.
Would I recommend Tea Tourist?
Considering almost all of these blends of tea only come in larger bags costing more and some are exclusive to this box, I would say this box is perfect for anyone looking to try new blends without having to spend a lot of money. It gives you the chance to try 6 different tea blends for minimal cost! If you were to buy them yourself you could be forking out money for something you may potentially not like. By buying this box you can try and taste different options before buying a full size.
So yes, I would recommend the tea tourist box!
