Can you tell me more about what’s in a Sips by Box?
Sips by Boxes typically contain 4 tea placements. The contents of each Sips by Box will vary from month to month showcasing different tea types, brands, and flavors according to your profile, your product reviews, and other feedback you choose to provide to us. We will do our best to match you with teas you’ll love – but can’t guarantee that you will receive a particular product, brand, or package type (e.g. loose leaf vs tea bag vs tea sachet).
