It’s the Reddit Traveling Tea Box! This one box of tea will be shipping around to other fellow reddit tea lovers in US and Canada!
I’ve been loving these traveling tea boxes so much that I’ve been signing up for more over the last few weeks. The only thing I don’t like about them is they take time out of my regular Oolong Owl tea drinking time and the boxes can get pricey to ship.
For the Reddit Traveling Tea Box I was the first stop! The schedule has 29 people on the list! I had the option of being last on the list, but I prefer being near the top. The box is on the small side right now, but I get first crack at the teas and I can add lots of goodies for others to try. Big thing I noticed thats different than other traveling tea boxes I’ve been in was the Reddit Traveling Tea Box allows gifts and tea tins.
I scrawled “Reddit Traveling Tea Box” on the inside, so I don’t get confused with the other boxes of tea I have (seriously my tea stash is scary). The Tea Owls were happy to start digging out all the teas!
Oooh, a tea themed gift! Thanks wuzfuz12!
Grrr, a Tea Owl found a lollipop and refuses to share it.
Cool finds in this traveling tea box:
I was told before the box shipped that a pu’er company adding some teas to the cause, but I didn’t know who. OMG it’s White 2 Tea! SWEEEEEEEEET. Well, I’m sampling all the ones I don’t have.
Score – Dryad Tea! I’ve been wanting to try them for awhile!
Funky Verdant Tea blends Club teas! I saw different ones in the last traveling tea box – I made sure to try a few that I thought sounded good. I found some of these are misses for me (though that might be why they are in a traveling tea box), but they are still very unique and creative teas.
The Entire box!
This box I was allowed to have for 72 hours. I drank a few times, but ended up packaging a buncha servings of various teas for me to drink for later. Gotta keep the tea box moving!
Traveling Teabox Campsite rule: Leave the box more organized and cleaner than when you first got it. I repackaged a few teas to make sure they don’t open or smell up the other teas in the box. Always have backup baggies, tape and boxes just in case you have to replace or repack something.
Drum roll…. My additions to the Reddit Traveling Tea box!
I added that crazy Azercay tea from Russia, Red Leaf Tea matchas, Simple Loose Leaf teas, some Shan Valley greens, a Fashionista Tea, The Persimmon Tree Thai Chai, Verdant Tea Yaobao blend and a Jalam Tea Pu’er. I also included some Yaupon teas (to be reviewed here soon!)
Gasp, I love Mandala Tea’s pu’er, and with my squirrely hording tea nature, so it was hard for me to add a sample, but hey, I still have more.
Whoops, the box is bursting! The Tea Owls started jumping to squish down the box, which didn’t help too much. I ended up repackaging a few things and playing tetris with the tea packages. It all fit, phew!
I’m really curious how this traveling tea box will look by the end – I can see it being crazy! Thank you tea lovers of reddit for having this tea box!
