Passover tea box, $17, plus the KLP tea and "Splenda" to fill it up.

Last year before Pesach, I was struck with major Passover Tea Box Envy, but given how expensive pre-filled Passover tea boxes were, I thought they were out of our reach. We like to offer tea and coffee to our guests after a meal, and I had been keeping our many different flavor KLP teabags in a basket.  Efficient but not so elegant.  Then I hit on the idea of buying an empty wooden tea box and filling it myself.

The one I bought last year (pictured above) was $16.13 at the time, but like everything else, the price has gone up and it's now $19.99.  I ended up gifting that tea box to a friend who admired it.

This morning I found this tea box for $16.99 with free Prime/SuperSaver shipping.  I like it even better than last year's tea box for two reasons:  first, because I like the French writing on the side...it's a little different ("Tisane" is French for "tea infusion"), and second, because it comes in four colors, black, red, orange and cream.  Again, just a little bit different.

If you buy one, make sure you fill it up with KLP Bigelow Tea (my personal favorite; delicious and cheap).  The list of Kosher for Passover (Kof-K) Bigelow teas are here.
You can split these 6-packs with friends or stockpile them or use them during the year.  Voila, instant KLP tea box, for much, much less than what you pay for a pre-stocked one, and lots of extra tea to refill it.

And respecting the fact that everyone is watching their weight these days, don't forget to pick up some of the KLP "Splenda" that is now available.

Since all of the Bigelow tea is part of Amazon's Subscribe & Save, the shipping is always free.  As a plus, order these teas will certainly help if you are aiming to get the extra 10% Subscribe and Save discount that I talked about here.  Please note that if you fulfill the requirement for five Subscribe and Save deliveries in one month, these prices will drop even further.

Just a word about Amazon Subscribe & Save: selecting Subscribe & Save is a fantastic way to save money.  It's pretty much risk-free, even if you are doing it just to get the additional discount. You can UNsubscribe to Subscribe & Save very easily, by going to your account as soon as your order has shipped. Even if (worse case scenario) you completely forget to unsubscribe, Amazon will not send out an additional order without shooting you a warning email first, giving you ample time to unsubscribe and cancel any additional orders in time. It's pretty much an all-win proposition. Shipping on Subscribe & Save items is always free, even without a Prime membership.
