This box was provided complimentary for review.

What is it? Tea Runners
How much? $25 per month with free shipping. Save on longer terms. Prices in US dollars.
What's in it? 4 loose leaf teas, enough for 30-50 cups

Tea Runners is a Canadian tea subscription that brings the undiscovered world of small batch loose leaf tea to your door. Each monthly box contains 4 pouches, each containing roughly 0.75 - 1 oz of tea. It's enough to make 30-50 cups of tea, depending on the type of tea and how strong you like it. In addition to the teas, each box also includes tasting notes and steeping directions. 

Each month, Tea Runners has a very limited amount of tea available for subscribers. Once sold out, they operate a wait list and new spots open up monthly. If you plan to subscribe, don't wait. Tea Runners sells out every month! Boxes ship on the 1st of each month and subscribers can skip or cancel any time.

First look!

The July write up mentions the Tea Runner team's recent trip to the World Tea Expo in Las Vegas. They got to sample some award winning, world class teas. They also hint that subscribers will see "the best black tea in the world" in a fall mailing.

Rishi Tea Mystic Mint
This seemingly simple blend of peppermint, cardamom, and licorice root combine to form a deep and uplifting complexity to refresh your spirits. Savour the sweet notes of basil with a slight hint of clove as you relax and digest after a meal, or as an un-caffeinated night cap to settle the body for sleep.A nice relaxing mint tea is always good to have in the tea cupboard.

American Tea Room Organic Bliss
An organic blend of green and white teas with dragon fruit and pomegranate, the fruitiness of this tea is balanced perfectly with a grassy lemon tartness. While light and breezy, this tea packs a sophisticated punch that leaves you wanting more. We love this tea hot as well as iced, especially with tropical fruit such as pineapple or mango added to your cup to deepen the exotic flavours of this worldly beauty.
Tea Runners says this tea is refreshing and great on ice. Can't wait to try it out!

Tea Runners Dragon Claw Oolong
This sharp and lingering oolong is aptly named, because as the tea leaves open, they resemble claws unfurling. These leaves are plucked at the beginning of the harvest after summer when the leaves are dark green, but the cup steeps to a beautiful amber color with a nutty toasted finish and the sweet tartness of apricot.
The TR team describes this oolong as "spectacular" and think it's perfect to sip while watching Game of Thrones. "This tea is dark and full of terror" - love the GoT references!

Tea Runners Black Gold Biluochun
The leaves that make up this special tea are as fresh as it gets, harvested just last spring in Simao to form a malty black Yunnan pure tea. These little pellets benefit from short-term aging to make a smooth but sturdy cup to waken the senses and boost energy levels, while the palate is left with hints of chocolate and flowers. Enjoy multiple steepings to get the most out of your leaves, or try it iced as a refreshing summer sip.
This pure black tea sounds very interesting. TR describes it as "SO good". 

The July Tea Runners included four pouches of tea from around the world. These teas are all quite complex and blended using the finest ingredients. I'm excited to give them a try! As of writing. new sign ups for Tea Runners are wait listed, but they hope to have 75 new spots open by the end of July. If you are interested in signing up, be sure to sign up for the wait list for your chance to get the August box.
