Dollar Tea Club

I recently had the opportunity to try my very first tea subscription. As all us of tea lovers know, we are “burdened” with way too much tea in our collection, so tea subscriptions have never really been on my radar, until I learned about the Dollar Tea Club. For one dollar (plus shipping, which costs more than the tea of course – $4.50), you get three 8 gram samples – a manageable amount of additional tea! (Unless you love a sample so much that you need to get more of it). At $5.50, this is still a great value – just think of how much it costs to purchase a cuppa at a shop. There are larger price point subscriptions that offer more tea. These are most likely better suited for people who don’t have as much tea as I do.

From Dollar Tea Club’s website: With Dollar Tea Club tea subscriptions starting at $1/month, everyone is guaran’tea-d to find something they love. Explore new blends, shop for your favorites online, and enjoy changeable monthly tea subscriptions. Love a tea? Add a bigger pouch for next month. Tired of a blend? Remove it. With a shop full of tea, accessories, and our famous $1 tea subscription with a No Contract, Cancel Anytime Guarantee, we bet you can’t think of a reason not to give us a sip.

In my last batch of samples, I received: Blue Spring Oolong, Bubblegum and Rocky Horror Spice. Blue Spring Oolong was definitely the winner of the three – and the oolong was deliciously heightened by the mallow petals.

Rocky Horror Spice

I did appreciate the fun additions to the blends – Rocky Horror Spice was Halloween themed with candy and Bubblegum had actual bubblegum in it. It is fun to be surprised by the blends in a subscription, but since I do have so much tea it would also be a neat feature to be able to pick from a selection so I don’t get repeats of tea I already have. So far, with the two mailings I have received, there were no repeats from my collection of 200+ teas.


All in all, definitely a subscription worth trying. They do have a cancel anytime guarantee. This is helpful if you don’t want to commit, especially if your tea collection is growing too fast! I did temporarily cancel mine as I was moving and didn’t have time for a subscription, but intend to start up again soon. If you’re cancelling/putting your subscription on hold for a longer period of time, you may want to double check the timeline with the Tea Club customer service.
Check out the Dollar Tea Club to see if their subscription is right for you. An inexpensive way to try new teas and get a fun surprise in the mail every month. Happy steeping!
