Monthly Tea & Coffee Subscriptions

As a customer of a monthly beauty subscription, I started looking at what other monthly subscription boxes are around. What really appeals to me are tea and coffee boxes. I'm a big tea drinker, although I don't drink 'normal' tea but rather green tea or other herbal and fruit teas.

Bluebird Tea Co. do a 6 month tea subscription at a cost of £59.70 (which works out at £9.95 per month). For this, you get 3 new blends delivered to your door every month. This is 20g of loose tea in each of the 3 monthly flavours. I've only come across Bluebird Tea Co. today but I'm guessing I'll be spending quite a bit of time (and money!) on this site in the coming months.

Charbrew also have Monthly Tea Club subscription service. The cost starts at £24.99 for 3 months, for which you get 2 packs of their specialist teas delivered every month. Each pack contains 15 x bio-degradeable pyramid tea bags.

Whittards do both tea and coffee clubs. Starting from £10 per month, you get 2 packs of either tea or coffee per month.

Kopi have a Coffee Explorer Club at £7.95, which gives you a 250g bag of different-origin coffee every month. The coffee will be either beans or ground.

Finally, another new site that I've come across today is Book and a Brew. For a cost of £12.99 per month, you get a hardback novel and a pack of either tea or coffee from stockists such as Teapigs and Taylors of Harrogate. This is a fantastic idea, however I read a lot and would have some concerns that I might receive a book that I already own.

I should point out that I have not personally tried any of these subscription services and, as such, I cannot say if they are good value or not. However, I would be interest to hear if you are signed up to these or any other tea or coffee subscription boxes.
