Oh, You Teas! The $6.99 Herbal Infusion Anthology Tea Sampler Set at Trader Joe’s Looks Like a Good Gift

Published in: Daily Photo

I’d say that I do about forty to fifty percent of my total holiday shopping in and around the check stand/register area.


It’s a problem of mine, and the stores know exactly what they’re doing. It’s all shopping psychology. Everything in that area — all the cute little gift sets, stocking stuffers and snacks — are all placed strategically right in your line of sight, so you can’t HELP but see them and think, “Oh! I need that!” or “Jen would totally love one of those!” Doop-da-doo, I’ll just drop one in mah basket…

Yup, I’m that person. Raise your hand if you are too. 🙂

So that’s basically how I found this Trader Joe’s Herbal Infusion Anthology Tea Set filled with eight samples of different loose-leaf teas (just $6.99). It was in a basket by the cashier, and you know how it goes… You went to get a loaf of bread, but you left with two bags of groceries and some new teas.

How cool is this, though?! The teas are all caffeine free, which could be a good thing if you’re giving it away as a gift to someone you don’t know very well, and there are cool combinations I’ve never seen before, so no “Peach Passion” run-of-the-ill herbal teas. The names sound more exotic than that, like Golden Coconut Masala, Lapacho Apple and Thai’d Lemon Mint.

Golden Coconut Masala one is a bright goldenrod color and has turmeric, coconut, cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, fenugreek, black pepper and cayenne pepper. You can see all the interesting tea ingredients because each one comes in a transparent plastic pouch. (I like looking at loose-leaf teas, BTW. I’m nerdy that way.)


I bet this would be a good gift for tea lovers, and it’s only $6.99. I got a box for my parents. They’ve been visiting family in the Philippines for a while, so it’ll be a nice welcome home present.


I actually haven’t tasted any of the teas yet because they’re herbal, and I’m not sure about some herbal teas during pregnancy. I think I’ll wait until after Baby Girl arrives.

Good gift potential though for $6.99. Trader Joe’s does it again!

    Wow that’s cool! I’m usually more of a full caffeine black tea person, but the flavor combinations here are really unique. I’ll try to find it!

    I’m a sucker for the gift sets near the cash register. The worse is at Sephora where I end up picking up stuff I want to try while standing in line. I like the tea sampler you’ve posted. I’ll have to pick one up for my sister in law. She loves teas :-). I’m a coffee drinking person. I totally need caffeine in my life.

    • Karen says:

      Yeah, that area in Sephora is dangerous. I’ve picked up many an extra thing there that I originally didn’t intend to, not gonna lie. 🙂 I hope that you can find this set; I googled it online and it was $20 on eBay. Crazypants!

      Can you believe it’s December already? Does Tulip have her Christmas outfit picked out? lol

      • Tulipthecat says:

        Tulip has a red sweater that says Meowy Christmas on it. I got it at petco. I couldn’t decide between that and the santa outfit. What will Tabs wear for Christmas?

        • Karen says:

          Her outfit sounds so cute! Does she wear it around the house for long?

          LOL, you know you’re a cat lady when you ask your cat lady friends what their cats are wearing for Christmas. 🙂

          Anyways, I still have to get Tabs his outfit. Gonna look this weekend. maybe I have to go to Petco. 🙂

    This would never get gifted because I’d drink it as soon as I got home from shopping. TJ’s always has great gifts around this time! Have you seen some of their new body/beauty stuff this year?

    I have two hands way up and I’m jumping up and down, to boot. I’m SUCH a sucker for the impulse buy at the register. In Sephora’s genius bullpen/maze, it’s nearly impossible NOT to pick things up. These teas look super cute and sound tasty, too. I agree – great gift! 🙂

  10. Iris says:

    The teas look adorable! I’d totally pick a few of these up as presents.
