Great tea, mediocre box
on January 5, 2018
The tea included is excellent, no complaints there. Numi tea is top quality and all the flavors are fantastic.
This rating is more about the box. It's VERY "rustic"--appears to be bamboo painted black and sewn together with what seems to be the sort of plastic-y string used to make inexpensive wicker products or children's craft bracelets. The bamboo splinters readily, the paint chips off with the splinters, and the whole thing is just sort of shoddy.
I can't recommend it for a special gift, but it would be fine for a white elephant party or something like that. Or as a gift for someone who deserves a few splinters.
The tea is amazing, though! Especially the Earl Grey :)
