A few weeks ago a friend of mine showed me a new subscription box launching soon called Tea Runners. I love tea and so I decided to try it out. I was one of the first 300 people to subscribe for the first month and my box arrived last week.
The packaging is pretty and I was super excited to open it and read about the four teas inside.
I first tried their Peach Ginger Detox tea. It was delicious! I really need an electric kettle to set temperatures to to make brewing easier. This tea is made of white, green, and oolong tea.
Generally my favorite tea is black tea, so I was looking forward to trying the CTC Black. It didn’t disappoint. I’ve drunk quite a few cups just of this tea in the last couple of days.
This month’s box also included an Annapurna Oolong Tea which I liked too. I hadn’t had Oolong before, at least not that I can remember. I made the first cup a little too strong, but it was still pretty good. The second one I didn’t steep as long and I added honey to it. Honey makes everything better. Even amazing things.
And finally, I tried the Makalu Mint Green Tea. I’m not a green tea person and maybe never will be. I like it more than I used to, but still don’t love it. This was good, but the only way I usually drink green tea is by reminding myself of its benefits, or by not having anything else around that’s caffeine free like my plain green tea is. So while this wasn’t my favorite, that doesn’t mean it’s not good, that just means I still don’t like green tea.
This is such a cool idea and I think I’ll continue with it. I’m just a little bummed that I’ve already used up a bunch of the CTC Black and it’s been less than a week!
