GUYYYYSSS a few weeks ago I was contacted by Kristan @ Novel Tea Club. She wanted to know if I was interested in receiving and reviewing a Novel Tea Club subscription box and, of course, I squealed like a pig and said yes. I will be going through the site and explaining this new subscription box, as well as taking pics of what's inside of my box! I received this box for free for review and all opinions stated here are honest and my own.
It's all about a night in! Curated for book-lovers and people who like to drink buckets of tea. There will always be a book, in whatever genre you choose, a beverage, and something extra. There can be 5-7 items in each box. You can choose from three different genres: Romance, Sci-Fi Fantasy or Young Adult. Along with their monthly subscription box, you can order already made boxes! How cool is that?
Starting at $32.99/month (Canadian princes) and $25. 32 (current conversion in USD) and then there are monthly deals. You can also buy already premade boxes and they already have some choices up on their site! Said prices already include shipping to Canada and American but if you would like to purchase internationally, it cost a bit extra!
My Box Details
I asked for the Young Adult box this month. This is what the box looked like:
Book - Until Friday Night by Abbi Glines. I'm super excited for this one! Maureen Keavy also recently bought this and described it in a way that really intrigued me. I honestly had no idea that this was going to be in the box, but I'm glad it is (valued at $16).
Tea - Full Size Tea Pigs super fruit caffeine free tea. Smells great and has all-real, whole fruit berries that contain all sorts of antioxidants (valued at $20 - $25 ).
Candles - 100% all natural beeswax rose candle that smells EXCELLENT. This is great since my mom collects candles so she'll love it!
Salt Water Taffy - Made in Burnaby, BC, Canada at Charlie's Chocolate Factory. I love salt water taffies but to anyone who's trying them on their first try, it might taste a bit weird. They say that they make great reading snacks since they aren't too rich or heavy, with a light tang.
Bookmark - Watercolor with gold design/typography. My favorite thing of this entire box, possibly because I love and collect bookmarks. It's so stunning and durable. The material isn't paper but it's not as strong as wood. It's like a super thick cardboard type of material that doesn't bend easily. From Indigo.
Stickers - They were so lovely and included some stickers in celebration of Easter. I love how they curated this one! I already stuck them on my computer, which you guys know I do with all my stickers!
For my first subscription box, I've definitely been pleasantly surprised. I didn't know what to expect and it took every last ounce of strength to stop myself from opening the package when I first got it. Of course, I had to wait for a probable time for me to shoot a video of me opening it. Alas that time came and I was able to devour everything inside. As an avid tea-drinker, I find this subscription box to be generally pleasing and appealing to me. I'd get a book and a new pack of tea every month! It's kind of like the perfect combination.
For $32.99, I'd say you're getting a bang for your buck. High quality tea is really hard to find at an inexpensive price. As a tea/book subscription box, I think it's really important that the tea is 'good quality' and has to have some type of wow factor. I don't think they could have chosen a better brand of tea for this box. I just had some this morning and am delighted with the taste. I don't like teas are that are super herbally, and I believe this one had a great mix of berries. It tasted like fresh raspberries and blueberries. They are, without a doubt, living up to the name of a great tea and novel sub box.
Would I purchase it? You can count on it. Their book choices aren't necessarily the newest releases but I can see that they are still pretty popular releases in the YA genre. I'm kind of glad they aren't new releases because I tend to preorder them anyway and it wouldn't make sense for me to get double copies. So please with this month's box, and I really can't wait to see what else is in store for this great subscription.
