Subscription-based boxes are a big hit. You can get them for just about anything you can think of. There are many types of these companies out there for tea but not all cater to quality. Tea Runners was the first subscription-based tea company I tried because they offer a box for purists. They also have a bunch of single tea selection that rotates frequently with a wide and interesting variety.
