[Giveaway] Tea Box Express


Tea Box Express is the brainchild of Andrea Reese, a New York City based entrepreneur who chooses caffeine as her drug of choice and tea as her favorite source. She owns a shipping store and edits the website BlackTeaWorld.com. Tea Box Express was born when her love of tea got mixed in with her entrepreneurial spirit. The result is an exciting box of quality tea and fun “tea things” that any fan of tea will be thrilled to open. Andrea enjoys running, cupcakes, and three cups of tea per day.

Each month’s box features a new, unique theme to encourage customers to delight in the tea experience along with superior quality tea and fun accessories. Tea Box Express has partnered with some of the best brands to ensure that each box is full of treats that will excite tea lovers and tea novices alike.

Tea Box Express offered me the chance to sample their October box and host a giveaway for my readers, which I loved since I always get excited passing on great products and promotions to readers.  The premier October 2014 box’s theme is “Bee Happy.” Not only does the box contain a delicious tea, gourmet honey, and bee-inspired accessories, but it also promotes positivity by encouraging customers to reflect on the happy parts of their lives.

I genuinely love all the items that were included in my sneak peek of the October 2014 box. I'm generally a coffee drinker, but I do love a good cup of tea, usually in the afternoons.  The Teatulia black tea that was included is so tasty and smells so good.  And I learned my lesson of how strong it is by enjoying a cup one night at bed, and then being up past midnight - oops.  Funny too, because I usually can fall right to sleep no problem after drinking coffee!

The Savannah Bee Company raw honey is perfectly sweet and the tea pot honey dipper is the cutest complimenting accessory.  I love how "tea" is scripted within the stainless steel tea pot on the handle.  The yellow tea bag holder is cute and I never met a cookie I didn't eat.  The shortbread cookie was the perfect nap tea time snack. 



I am already planning on ordering one of these for Ashlynn's preschool teacher.  It would make the perfect birthday or holiday gift for a teacher, hostess, hair stylist, babysitter, you name it.  I'm actually convinced it's the perfect gift since it's more personal than a gift card and yet, not as personal as selecting something that a recipient might not enjoy or use which is always my fear!

Tea Box Express is offering to giveaway one of their premier October boxes to a lucky reader and they are also offering readers 20% off their first box with code "STRAWBERRY20".  Enter below and good luck!

  2. This tea is so good! I get in tea kicks, usually during the colder months. I really just think this is the perfect universal "thank you gift". I always get nervous about giving wine (what if they don't drink?) or giving something random like blankets, barware, jewerly. I love when gifts coordinate too... I have gotten my inlaws coffee with photo mugs for the last three years haha for the holidays.
