Other Tea of the Month Club Reviews
Below are tea subscription services that didn’t receive “Best for” titles, but may be of interest to you.
BlendBee is our “Best All In One” pick because it includes the bag, scoop and often a muslin tea bag so you can get to drinking just as fast as you can open your package. They offer two Tea of the Month Club options: Tea Addict and Tea Sampler. Tea Addict includes two, 3-ounce bags of tea, totaling 60 cups. Tea Sampler includes two, 1.5-ounce bags of tea, totaling 30 cups. So, if you’re the type of person who likes more than one cup of tea per day, you should probably go for the Tea Addict subscription. Subscriptions are month-to-month, so you don’t have to commit to a long-term contract.
Opt for caffeinated (green, black and white teas), decaffeinated (herbal and rooibos blends) or a mix of both.
- Tea Addict: $20/month
- Tea Sampler: $15/month

Sometimes they send out five teas, 8 grams each. If you join the monthly plan you pay each month. If you join the yearly plan, you pay for the entire year at once.

Teavana’s Tea of the Month Club includes three loose teas totaling eight ounces per box, four ounces of the Tea of the Month plus two ounces of two featured teas. Within one year, you’ll get to try 36 different teas. To give you an idea of how many cups of tea that would make, two ounces makes 15 to 20 cups. So eight ounces of tea makes 60 to 80 cups, which is enough for two or more cups of tea per day. If you’re not going through the tea fast enough, you can skip a month. Teavana is our “Best Tried and True” because it is a household name that has a variety of teas available for purchase at many stores nationwide.
- Three Month: $100
- Month-to-Month: $45

Republic of Tea’s Tea of the Month Clubs are mostly bags; only one club has full leaf tea. This is a big con in our opinion. If you’re spending $100+ on tea for a club, you expect it to be high quality. The tea leaves used in bags are typically the “dust and fannings” from broken full leaves. Finely broken tea leaves lose most of their aroma and oils, which results in a bitter taste. We recommend purchasing full leaf tea, especially if you’re joining a club.
