Tea Sparrow Review, Discount Code and Spoilers

Tea Sparrow is a new subscription box that sends four carefully selected teas from around the world.  Tea Sparrow sent me this box to review and C (my husband) was very happy to help me review it.  Tea Sparrow is $20.00 a month and you get enough tea, to make 35-40 cups of tea.  Since Tea Sparrow sends loose leaf tea, you will need a tea infuser/strainer, which is not included.  One of the great things about Tea Sparrow, is all of their teas are free from artificial ingredients.

Tea Sparrow sent some tips with their box

1.  Measure: Use measuring spoons and cups to ensure accuracy when brewing each blend.

2.  Heat: Use a food thermometer to reach the ideal steeping temperature for each blend

3.  Time It: Every tea has it’s own unique optional steep time.  Use a timer, so you can set it and forget it

4.  Enjoy:  Try new flavors and share with friends.

The Whole Box

Final Thought:  This was a really great box for C.  C is rather picky about his subscription boxes and this one made the cut.  The teas are all a high quality and not something that you will find at your local grocery store.  Tea Sparrow is a great way to try new teas from all over the world.  What do you think of Tea Sparrow?  What is your favorite tea?  If you want to sign up, click here and use the word teas in the password space.  If you would like, let me know if you sign up, and I will get a free box.
