Hiya people, as all of you know…. there are subscription boxes galore in India. While most of them focus on beauty and fashion accessories, there are few that venture into something different as well. An example of that is the The Day Drinking Box. Brought to you by the same team that curates The Violet Box, this box has an interesting story! During a Violet Box party (term used by the team for a brainstorming session), Gaurav their COO came up with the idea of having a box that focussed only on tea and coffee. He reflected on data showing an average individual having over 40,000 cups of tea or coffee in their lifetime. He felt that the large brands that dominate the Indian market, mass produce powdered teas only. The team decided to change this and source high quality fresh whole leaf teas. Thus was born the Day Drinking Box which aims to bring together whole leaf Oolong, Rooibos, Puer-eh, Matcha, Green & Black teas and arabica bean single estate coffees from across the world. I was sent the January 2016 and here is the unboxing video

The Day Drinking Box Final Thoughts
Like The Violet Box, a part of the The Day Drinking Box proceeds goes to charity as well. For every box, they donate a meal to a kid. One for One. They have tied up with NGOs in Pune & Mumbai that assist us for these donations. So that does add a feel good factor to the whole purchase. You know that your morning cuppa is contributing in a small way to feeding a child somewhere. As you saw in the video, the Jan box has 30 servings. However from March, the Day Drinking box will ship to 70 countries and each box will have 60 servings.
