The box was wrapped like a Christmas gift and included a candy cane.
Green tea with jasmine is a classic combination, and this is a particularly nice example of the family, flavourful without being overpowering.
Ying Ming Yunnan
A green with a sweet smell and a refreshing taste, this tea is a little stronger than the Jasmine—an after-lunch cup rather than an after-dinner one.
Holiday Rooibos Chai
This is a lovely, mild chai, a little gentler than others of its kind, with a delightful overtone of cinnamon and a warm, festive flavour.
This sample came in a small covered tin and was not labelled. I knew what kind of tea it was so that’s why I could give it a review this time. This is a Japanese green tea combined with roasted brown rice. Earthy and substantial, this tea is full of flavour but tends toward bitterness if steeped too long. Set a timer and enjoy. The sampler included in the box was perfect for a small, two-cup pot. The $20 gift card is for new customers only and allows your friend to get one month of Miletea free!
I think Miletea is a really good subscription for tea lovers. The quality is excellent and you get a very good portion at 20 g per sample. I like the info cards that are associated with each tea. They are very informative and provide suggestions for water temperature and steeping time. A very nice detail to be included. Overall this is a great gift for the holidays and I thought the gift card was a nice inclusion.
