I've subscribed to several beverage subscriptions and THIS is by far the best! Educational, engaging and keeps me excited for the next month. You can see the labor of love that Matt puts into each box. The whole process of tea making is highlighted with this service which makes it soar above the rest out there. As they say, "HIGHLY RECOMMEND."
This box was done so beautifully well!! It was a virtual teahouse experience in a PACKAGE. Nothing was left out or overlooked or "assumed knowledge"...and the excitement over the Mystery Tea was HIGH and did not disappoint! The tea, business card!! and exotic experience of an offering from the famous Wistaria Teahouse was totally unexpected and seriously awesome--as is my delight with Mountain Stream Teas and their staff.
This is THE subscription service to have if you want to learn about Taiwanese teas. Each month's box has been very educational and packed with exceptional teas. And I love the inclusion of a mystery tea each month that makes for a fun blind tasting! Not only do you get wonderful teas with a theme to each months box but you also get to know more about the farmers behind the teas. Whether you're looking to dive deeper into tea knowledge or just want high quality teas delivered monthly then this service is for you!
This box arrived quickly and in good condition. I especially like that the packaging is efficient- it fit right into my mailbox! The tea itself was beautifully packaged with clear brewing instructions. It was fun to learn about the tea and be able to understand how and why grades and tastes are affected. It is obvious that this company has real knowledge about and passion for tea.
Side note: they are very fast to respond via email/social media!
