Dollar Tea Club Review January 2017

Dollar Tea Club was founded in 2016 with one goal, ship premium tea to their members at an affordable price.  They skip the fancy tea boutique and send tea right to your door.  Getting great tea should always been this easy. They kindly sent us this box for review.

What is Dollar Tea Club?  Well, for less than $1/day, they send premium loose leaf tea right to your door.  Why join the club?
– Get amazing tea every month (#never-be-without-tea)
– Get 3 free samples with every order
– No hidden costs. No membership fees. GuaranTEA’d
– We only purchase ethically grown, direct trade tea
– All of our prices include shipping, handling & applicable taxes

Tea boxes are probably my all time favourite box to get!  I’m a big tea drinker and I also get board of teas very quickly, so to have new and exciting tea shipped to me monthly is a very exciting thing.  This if the first Dollar Tea Club I’ve received and I’m loving it already!

Campfire S’mores

Ingredients: Black tea, oolong tea, white tea, mini marshmallows, cocoa peel, chocolate drops, hazelnut brittle, favouring, pomegranate petals, marigold flower petals.
Enjoy the roasted flavours of chocolate and marshmallow with this delicious black tea.

Located behind bag #1 is an all time favourite Canadian treat, S’mores.  Well, not the actual S’mores itself, but yes those are actually tiny marshmallows!  I could not wait to try this tea so the second the photo was taken I boiled water and infused some.  It was delicious!  It had a strong black tea flavour to it but a nice sweetness that didn’t require any added honey.

When you order your first Dollar Tea Club box you will receive a couple of free complementary items to get you started on your connoisseur ways.  Pictured here is a pre-measured out tea spoon.  Never scoop too much or too little for that perfect cup!

Blueberry Blast

Ingredients: Rooibos, blueberries, white apple pieces, natural coconut chips, flavouring, mallow flowers, pink rose flower petals.
This blend packs a beautiful blueberry-apple taste.

Rooibos is my favourite type of tea!  I love the look of this loose leaf tea, it’s so colourful and fragrant.  Can’t wait to try it.

Your second complementary item is a tea infusing ball.  If you ask me, you can never have too many of these!  I find after a while they do get bent and rusted out.  I’m always in need of a new one.

Earl Grey

Ingredients: Black tea, natural flavouring
Classic earl grey infused with bergamot.  It’s simply delicious.

The scent coming off this tea is breath-taking!  It smells like a real authentic earl grey tea!  This one has to be tried with some proper English biscuits and clotted cream.

Included in your box will always be a few infusing bags.  I’m so happy these are provided.  This is such a great idea for tea on the go.  I don’t always want my metal infuser in my tea the whole time I’m drinking it, but this gets hard when I have a thermos in the car.  Tea bags are a much better way to go.

What the Duck?

What the duck is right!  There wasn’t any explanation of this tea in the box haha!  It looks and smells amazing though!  It’s a rooibos based tea though, so it’s a win win for me.  I’m happy so much was provided of this flavour as it smells like it could be the new favourite!

Included in the box is your own comment card of the teas.  Keep track of your favourites by rating them and leaving comments.  Each tea also has it’s own steeping time, origin, caffeine level and temperature it should be steeped at.

Dollar Tea Club January 2017 – Final Thoughts

Wow, I’m so impressed with this box!  I love that they make you feel like a tea connoisseur with your own comment card and numbered teas.  I also liked how each tea was totally unique from the last.  I really feel like Dollar Tea pays attention to the details, which goes a long way for me!  Can’t wait for the next one.

Let’s get steeping!
