Kristen is such a lovely friend who is blending up teas in NYC! She recently also came out with a holiday collection that includes beauty products that make great gifts!

Matchaeologist has delicious matcha and it’s a reason why I chose them for the steep it real box! They have a wide range of matcha grades and do a great job explaining each one. Bonus points: they have really lovely packaging which makes these gift ready!

Esteemed Tea Collective

Esteemed Tea Co is another tea company I chose for my steep it real boxes for a variety of reasons. Their loose leaf oolong is places in pyramid shaped tea bags for brewing on the go but then are just as easily cut open for regular brewing. They have a variety of flavors to meet different tastes and they include steeping directions which is great if you are new to oolong or need some guidance!

I pledged to their kickstarter for a tin and recently received it! It is a super cute gift and they are always adding to their novel collections. The tea that is included is tasty as well!

Sips by is a fun subscription box that will help any veteran or new tea lover get introduced to new teas and tea brands!

Monica hand blends all her chai and has a variety of different flavors from spicy to sweet! Her blends are so delicious which is one of the reasons I included her tea in the steep it real box!
