A steaming hot cup of tea can help warm your spirits in more ways than one during the winter months. For tea lovers who want to break out of their comfort zone and find new kinds of brews to try out this season, Sips by could be a great choice, as this monthly subscription box gives you a curated selection to enjoy each month.

Each box offers four types of tea. You can choose from one-month, three-month, six-month, or year-long memberships, with prices starting at $13.75 per month. To create this bespoke package, first you'll need to sign up for a free online account at Sips by and take the brand's custom tea quiz, which will ask questions about your caffeine, blend, and packaging preferences. Once you’ve completed the quiz, you’ll be able to choose which subscription level you’d like to do.

The teas you'll find inside each box truly vary, with well-known brands like DavidsTea, The Republic of Tea, and Teeccino among the more than 150 others featured in this subscription service. From the teas provided, you can make over 16 cups or over 48 cups if you re-steep the leaves. If you’re new to tea drinking, you’ll be happy to know that helpful guides (like how to steep tea) are included inside each box, along with biodegradable filters for loose leaf tea and exclusive offers on specific brands that you can buy at the Sips by online shop.

You’ll even have access to the MY SIPS Learn Page, which has tasting guides, recipes for teas, and more to discover. Once you place your first order, you’ll be on an automatic renewal cycle which you can cancel, pause, or skip at any time through your account.

Be sure to check out all the subscription levels Sips by has to offer, and for a limited time, you can use the promo code "HAPPY20" at checkout for $3 off your order.
