Here is our list for the best tea subscriptions of 2022.
Table of Contents
Yunnan Sourcing offers quite a few different ‘tea club boxes’ each month, with each selection being tailored to different styles of teas, such as green tea or oolong, although a couple of the boxes do offer more of a variety.
They don’t automatically charge you for their subscriptions, so each month you can check back and see if you want to order what they are offering that month.
Regardless, their ‘tea club boxes’ offer a varied selection of premium Chinese tea.
Seven Cups Fine Chinese Teas
Seven Cups has two different subscription models:
A Tasting Flight – In this subscription they send you 2 or 3 different teas from their selection. They advertise this subscription as “a changing mix of good tea for everyday drinking”.
The Origin Series – This subscription is a 3 month package which focuses on tea from specific origins.
Verdant Tea has a monthly tea subscription where each month one of their producers curates a selection of tea for their subscribers.
I have subscribed to Verdant Tea’s tea subscription in the past, and they always sent me a higher value than the tea would have otherwise cost.
Art of Tea
Art of Tea has a popular ‘Tea of the Month’ club.
Based upon the descriptions on their website, I don’t feel that this tea subscription is necessarily worth the price, but the tea they send out is often considered to be of good quality.
I haven’t been a huge fan of most of the teas which I have tried from White2Tea, but many people do enjoy their teas, so their tea subscription is probably worth mentioning.
West China Tea
West China Tea offers an extensive selection of high-quality tea from notable producers, but they are not cheap.
They do have a subscription tea model, and if you like their teas, it can be a great way to try new teas at a slight discount in relation to their list price.
I have enjoyed Verdant Tea for many years now. It has really gotten me familiar with many different kinds of teas in China as every year you get new iterations from the same farmers. So for example every spring you get the Lung Ching from their sourced family. Every year you get the spring and the autumn teas from their Laoshan tea family, every year you get tieguanyin and Wuyishan teas and teas from Yunnan etc. from the same producers. So it has been enjoyable getting to know their teas and cycling through them seasonally.
Another tea subscription I can recommend is Old Ways Tea. It is bi-monthly and heavily Wuyi based. But I find the value and quality and interesting selections to be very worth it.
