Unboxing October’s Tea Box Express Monthly Box

I have always loved and enjoyed Tea Box Express. In my opinion, this box is one of the better tea monthly subscription boxes you can sign up for. Not only do they curate fresh amazing teas from a vast array of tea companies, but you also receive additional tea related goodies like cookies, tea accessories, and even beauty products.  Each monthly is expertly curated providing any tea enthusiasts with a wonderful array of tea fun to enjoy.

It seems like October’s box was curated just for me! This month there was a tea from JusTea, sea salt caramels, a tea to be used for a facial (that can also be steeped up like an herbal), and a lovely wooden spoon.

The tea was brilliant and gave so much love. I actually have started drinking this tea daily and will be sad when the bag is empty.  Never having JusTea before, I wasn’t sure what to expect.  But this Mount Kenya Black Tea was smooth, silky, well balanced and so full of flavor.  I found myself gulping this tea down cup after cup.  Another wonderful reason why Tea Box Express is perfect for any tea enthusiast.  You  may get a chance to experience teas you may never have thought of trying or had a chance to try as is the case with this tea for me.

My next favorite goodie was the sea salt caramels from  Liddabit Sweets.  They were insanely gooey with that
sweetness tangled and a hint of salt complimenting the flavor nicely.   Unfortunately, these went crazy fast at my house. Between myself, my hubby, and my stepsons, these were gone in just a few days.  But I do have plans on picking more up for the holidays.  They will make great little add on gifts or stocking stuffers.


I have yet to try the facial steam or even brew the tea up like an herbal. I’m waiting for a time when I can properly pamper myself with a good book and a few minutes where I can just relax.


As for the wooden spoon (also from JusTea) -its a wonderful accessory to have. I’ve enjoyed using it for my impromptu tea parties that I’v been enjoying with this tea box.

All in all, October’s box was perfect. Each piece fits perfectly into my tea drinking itinerary.  For the price, you are getting an amazing value and array of treats. I am looking forward to what November’s box will bring!

For all of our readers, Tea Box Express is offering an amazing deal, perfect for the upcoming holidays.  Use TEAHAPPY when checking out and this will give you 20% off your box.

Elevating Your Tea Game: Halloween Cozies from Linda’s Passion

Drinking tea is only half of the fun. Having a really unique tea accessory or mug is the other part of the tea drinking process. I can’t explain it but having the right mug in hand with a relaxing freshly steeped brew just really puts you in the right frame of mind.

halloweenteacozy2That is exactly how I feel about my amazing Halloween Tea Pot Cozy from Linda’s Passion, an Etsy shop.  I mean just look at how great my tea pot looks!

This particular tea pot cozy has wonderfully spooky fabric that is made to look like the outside of a haunted house, perfect for Halloween. Pack full of ghosts and spiders, this cozy really brings about that holiday feel to any tea party or just for yourself!

I’ve used this cozy so many times since receiving it and I have to say, I really enjoy having this additional accessory. Handmade, this cozy gives your tea pot that extra barrier to help keep your tea warm. It used to be that I would rarely make giant pots of tea by myself, but with this new cozy, I’ve found myself doing just that more and more. I just love it and will use it all year round, not just during October. I’m sort of a horror geek, so this fits perfectly.

Each cozy is lined with fleece-helping keep the tea or water warm for about an hour. I have to say this is pretty spot on.  All you do is basically just slip the cozy onto the tea pot and tighten the cording. That is it. Super easy to put on. I don’t own  a lot of larger tea pots and the one I do own is a funny shape. As you can see in the picture above, the cozy fits just fine on mine!

Linda’s Passion offers so many awesome Halloween designs, I mean just look! I’ve got my eye on a few of these. . .

Each handmade cozy comes with 4 adorable fabric coasters, which I find myself grabbing all the time. I’m always spilling a drip  here and there and its nice that I have these handy.    So many great cozies! I just need to buy more teapots to fit these adorable cozies!

Be sure to check out Linda’s Passion Etsy Shop. It’s full of these wonderful cozies and for all different seasons and designs. Like I said earlier, I’ve got my eye on several of them! Perfect for that gift giving season that is just around the corner.

Here’s the scoop!

The ribbon/cording tie at the top of the cozy and the elastic base creates a snug and custom fit allowing it to conform to the size and shape of your teapot.
