Last month, I wrote about a new Jane Austen / Tea monthly subscription box by Pembertea. Subscription boxes are pretty awesome—every month (or quarter or whatever the time frame is) you receive a box in the mail on a particular theme. For Pembertea, the main theme is Jane Austen with a side of tea along with a specific monthly theme.
“Books, Tea and Austen are our spirit animals.” is their motto.
Pembertea reached out to me after the post was published and offered to send me a few boxes to review which I gladly took them up on their offer. This post is an honest review of those boxes.
Reader, they are exquisite.
Pembertea sent me two boxes, April and May 2018.
The boxes arrived in a branded mailing box.
First up is April.
The treats in each boxed are delicately wrapped and when opened, the delights are thoughtfully and carefully packed.
April’s theme was “Emma” so the box contained all things Emma.
There is a tea strainer, tea, a bracelet charm, an Emma candle, Emma air freshner, and finally an Emma bookmark.
May’s was especially a delight as it celebrated “Music, Mothers, and Matrimony.”
It was especially adorable since Pembertea included buttons of Harry & Meghan to celebrate the Royal Wedding.
Frameable music sheet, Austen soap, tea, Darcy pillowcase, bracelet charm, and Harry & Meghan buttons.
Overall, the boxes are divine. The items are thoughtfully curated and well made. I liked that the months I received were timely, Harry & Meghan!, other than the bracelet charm and tea which are constant, the boxes were wholly unique and catered to that month’s theme.
I love how involved they are within the Janeite community and their dedication to Austen (and tea) is evident in the items they choose for that particular month.
The boxes are monthly and are $35 which for the amount of stuff you get is a great deal. If you prefer to order the boxes by theme instead of month, Pembertea has created a list of 2018’s boxes here.
This box is especially necessary for Austen fans as well as fans of Regency era gifts and most importantly, tea.
