Coffee beans and tea leaves in the mailbox: 2 Canadian subscription services

With email and social media, it sometimes feels like the only things waiting in your real-world mailbox are unwanted flyers and bills to pay. Looking to change that, there has been a trend of monthly subscription boxes delivering, right to your door, everything from makeup, to doggy treats, to clothing. If you love trying out new teas or coffees, signing up for a subscription service which sends you quality products is a fun, low-investment way to broaden your culinary palate. Here are two Canadian companies that specialize in just that, so whether you're an avid tea or coffee drinker, you can try something new and discover a range of flavours you might really enjoy. 1. Parachute Coffee: Delivering freshly roasted coffee right to your door, Parachute Coffee specializes in promoting Canadian, small-batch specialty coffee roasters. For $25 a month, you'll receive a 12 ounce bag of whole beans (which should yield about 35-40 cups of coffee). parachute coffee 2. Tea Sparrow: Based in Vancouver, Tea Sparrow specializes in loose leaf tea. For $20, you'll receive monthly boxes filled with a selection of 4 blends from around the world. Each box yields about 35 to 40 cups of tea, with a wide variety, including herbal and caffeinated blends. The service's aim is to widen your knowledge of tea and give you the opportunity to discover new blends you might not have ever had a chance to taste. If you find a blend that you particularly love, you can find information on the tea blender through the company's website. tea subscription services These subscription services also make great gifts, so keep these in mind for Father's Day !
