Do I need a tea infuser for my subscription box?

Although we supply you with four tea bags with your subscription, we recommend investing in an infuser for a more enjoyable experience. Tea infusers allow the tea to expand more generously resulting in a better tasting cup. You can read more about infusers and accessories on our loose leaf tea blog.

How much loose leaf tea will I get?

We offer 3 different subscription plans which each offer various amounts of tea. But there are four different flavours in every subscription box. our Standard Tea Subscription provides 20 grams per tea blend (80 Grams all together), Premium Tea Subscription offers 25 grams per tea blends (100 Grams all together) and our Deluxe Tea Subscription offers 30 grams  per tea blend (120 Grams). Remember you can also re-infuse your loose tea due to its strength so you essentially get more than the standard one brew.

When do I get billed?

Once your pay for your subscription, you are automatically billed.

All future recurring payments are taken on the same day of the month from when your first order was placed. Our website operates on WordPress and we use Stripe payment systems to receive all of our orders.

Do I need to be home when my tea subscription arrives?

Our subscription boxes fit right through the letterbox so you won’t need to be home when your tea box arrives. The tea box is sent as a standard large letter so you won’t need to sign for anything either.

Can I pause or cancel my subscription?

If you decide that you no longer wish to receive your loose tea box or you need a break,  just send us an email at stating whether you would like to pause or cancel your subscription. 

Is there an option for a vegan subscription box?

Just like the standard, premium and deluxe subscription options we offer. There is the exact same for vegan subscription boxes. So if you want 40, 60 or 80 cups of vegan tea then you have come to the right place! Aside from this, all of our loose leaf tea is vegetarian friendly. We also provide the option for organic and decaffeinated tea subscription boxes.

What if I have certain allergies?

You can email us at to let us know if you have any allergies. This way we can tailor you tea box accordingly.

However, most of our loose leaf teas do not contain nuts, coconuts, dairy and other known ingredients which can cause people to be subject to allergic reactions. For extra reassurance, all of the loose tea we send has the ingredients listed on the labels.

The labels are found on the front of the tea packets.

You can also check the ingredients on the product profiles on our shop page.

Can I purchase tea from the subscription box separately?

We often find that customers love the tea that is included in their subscription packages. To make sure we satisfy all of our customers, we have opened a tea shop on our website. So you can buy all of the tea included in your subscription tea box.

The tea available on our website comes in either 50g or 100g pouches.

The subscription costs £7 + £2.95 postage to the United Kingdom.  International shipping is £3.75. But if you spend over £30 you will be eligible for free International Delivery.
