    OK, close your eyes. Now, picture this: you're sitting in a cozy nook, wrapped in a suuuuper soft blanket with a book in your lap. It's cloudy out and you feel content staying in. Now, open your eyes. What's missing from this scene? A steaming cup of tea, of course!

    The Walt Disney Company

    Luckily for you I have the perfect solution in mind for making that daydream I just described a reality: a tea subscription box! I've found some reliable options to help you get your caffeine fix.

    1. Simple Loose Leaf has a variety of subscription box options that'll ensure you'll have all the tea you might possibly need at any given time.

    Why they're great: You can choose from four kinds of boxes depending on your tea preference: a sampler box, an herbal tea box, a green tea box, and a black tea box. They'll send you four different loose teas each month and four reusable linen tea filters. You can also choose how often you receive the deliveries and how many deliveries you'd like to pay for up front.

    Items we love: the sampler tea box for $10 a month because it comes with a black tea, a green tea, an herbal tea, and a seasonal tea.

    2. Bookishly's Tea and Vintage Book Club will combine two of your favorite hobbies into one charming subscription box.

    Why they're great: In addition to four tea pyramids, you'll receive a vintage book and some gorgeous stationery! The tea is also tested and carefully selected before being added to the subscription box.

    Items we love: the Bookishly monthly subscription box from Cratejoy for $14.75 a box.

    3. Sips By subscription box, perfect for any tea drinker who wants to *mix up* their go-to flavors with personalized, carefully selected options each month.

    Why they're great: Personalization is key! You'll create a free profile, answer some questions, then enjoy the four curated teas that have been selected just for you! Sips by has over 150 tea brands in their line up, so you'll always get a chance to enjoy something new. I've also personally tried out this subscription box and can confirm it is *delightful*.

    Items we love: the Sips By Box for $15 a month.

    4. Tea Runners will deliver tea from small batch producers right to your front door, doing all the hard work for you so you can just kick back and cuddle with your favorite mug.

    Cratejoy

    Why they're great: There are SO many subscriptions to choose from (12, to be exact) so you'll truly be able to put together a version that works for you and your tastes. Each box comes with enough tea for 30 to 50 cups!

    Items we love: the Tea Runners original box from Cratejoy for $21.25.

    5. Tea Drop's Tea Club for anyone who likes to feel like they're part of an *exclusive* group (for tea, of course).

    Why they're great: Each month you'll get five "drops" of three different kinds of tea, one additional drop for free, exclusive access to the "Tea Club Group" and a free surprise (for example, this month's was a coaster). In case you're not familiar with Tea Drop, their tea is made of finely-sourced loose leaves packed into a cute shape.

    Items we love: the Combo Box (filled with decaf and caffeinated tea) for $25 a month.

    6. Free Your Tea, a tailor-made subscription box that'll make you wonder why you haven't been having tea delivered to you all this time.

    Cratejoy

    Why they're great: I personally love that they have a caffeine-free option because tea before bed (that won't keep you up all night) is wonderful. They also offer a general personalized tea subscription box as well as a "tea for two" box. Your first shipment includes six samples to taste test so you can rank your preferences — fun!

    Items we love: the Caffeine-Free Personalized Subscription Box from Cratejoy for $17 a month.

    7. Tea Box, a must-have for anyone who is looking to swap out their second cup of coffee for tea instead *and* truly appreciates a theme

    Tea Box

    Why they're great: They have free worldwide express shipping (!!!) fun themed boxes, and come with five premium teas per box. For example. this month's box is floral-themed (florals for spring, groundbreaking!) and comes with an array of fragrant teas to make you excited about the changing seasons.

    Items we love: the three month subscription for $35.99 a month.

    8. Art of Tea's "Tea of the Month" club will help you discover all kinds of new flavor options, excellent if you're adventurous and want to feel like your tastebuds are still traveling the world.

    Why they're great: They put *so* much thought into their tea curation! They have five carefully put together options including a caffeine-free choice, tea from the "Classic Collection" (a wide array of teas), a "Single Origin" option (rare tea from all over the world), an "Explore" subscription featuring teas from exotic locations, and a pyramid tea box filled with tea for on-the-go.

    Items we love: the six month "Explore" subscription for $110 (exotic teas!).

    9. The Whistling Kettle's subscription box, to fill your coziest corner of the house with an aromatic tea you likely wouldn't have picked off the supermarket shelves.

    The Whistling Kettle

    Why they're great: They have five various subscription box options, so you're bound to find one that fits your needs. Many of them come in "basic" or "plus" editions. In addition to getting five different types of tea you'll also receive a 20% off coupon you can use on other Whistling Kettle items!

    Items we love: the basic "adventure" box for $16 a month.

    10. And Harney and Son's teabag and honey sampler subscription, in case you know you won't want to bother with loose tea but still enjoy a quality cup.

    Harney and Sons

    Why they're great: Harney and Sons is, admittedly, my go-to tea brand. The sampler set is awesome because it comes with 60 teabags (15 different flavors) and 10 honey sticks, so you'll be prepared for countless cozy days at home. You have the option to subscribe for deliveries every 20, 30, 45, 90, or 120 days.

    Items we love: a 30-day reoccurring subscription for $22.46 each delivery.

    ... and *that's* the tea.
