Gifting a Monthly Tea Box can be done easily. Choose the length of gift from the Monthly Box Page - 3, 6 or 12 month gift plans are available. Check the box next to "This is a gift". Enter the recipient's name and email address and an optional note to the recipient. We send them an email letting them know you've gifted them a tea subscription! Note: Your personal message is emailed to them. It is not added inside the actual box.
Important: make sure to enter the gift recipient's shipping address at checkout, not your own!
Currently the only way to make a gift subscription a surprise is to enter your own email in the gift recipient's email field when checking out. We are not able to change that email later, so the recipient will not be able to login to customize and all emails would go to you.
