The Best Tea Subscription Boxes to Up Your Self-Care Game
In a fast-paced, non-stop world, the idea of self-care is having a moment. Taking some “me-time” to settle into your favorite chair and read a book, head to the gym, or take a cozy nap. However, if carving out an hour or two seems impossible among meetings, deadlines, and the ever-growing laundry mountain in your bedroom, maybe you need to start small. Like with a 10-minute tea break? Signing up for a tea subscription box is the simplest way to sneak a little self-care into your daily routine. And, when the tea comes right to your door, all you have to do is plop the kettle on the stove and pencil “Tea Time” into your planner.
Here are a bunch of tea subscription boxes that can easily slide right into your routine.
