When do I pay for my membership?
At the time you join Simple Loose Leaf, ongoing or gift, you pay for the first period of your membership. i.e. 1 Month, 3 Month, 6 Month. If you are a member of the ongoing club, then your membership will renew on the next 11th, after your pre-paid period is completed. If you have/gave a gift membership, the membership will not renew.
When is the cut off to join Simple Loose Leaf and still get the next box of tea?
All of Simple Loose Leaf tea club boxes ship on the first business day of the month. And the cut off to get the very next box of tea is the last day of the month. i.e. If you join on the 1st through the 31st of December, then your first box of tea will go out on the first business day of January. If you give a gift membership, the tea goes out at the same time as the other tea boxes.
When will my Tea Box be shipped?
Simple Loose Leaf ships all tea boxes on the 1st business day of the month. Expect 2-3 days for domestic shipments and 6-8 days for Canadian shipments.
How much tea do I get each month?
All of our club boxes have 4 to 6 different teas. Each tea will have 1/4 of an ounce. That is enough for a full pot of tea and/or several cups of single serve cups.

We try to features a variety of different teas each month. Here are some types you can expect:
-Traditional green tea – unflavored or lightly flavored tea ie. Jasmine or magnolia

-Oolong or pu’er – more likely oolong
-Flavored tea – can be black, green or herbal but we aspire to keep this seasonal
ABOUT SIMPLE LOOSE LEAFSimple Loose Leaf is dedicated to growing and expanding the culture of tea through offering the most exciting tea of the month club imaginable. So, you want to know more about the people behind Simple Loose Leaf? Alright, here’s the story.
There are three of us that run Simple Loose Leaf, two brothers and a sister. Here is a rundown about the three of us.
My name is Andrew Flocks, I have an addiction to black teas. The original idea of starting a tea subscription box was my idea, but since we started Simple Loose Leaf has evolved into SO much more than my original idea. I have a degree in Economics and Finance from the University of Arkansas, Go Razorbacks! And I have been starting businesses since I was in high school. I think entrepreneurship is one of the most important missions I have in my life. And right now my passion is developing the most amazing subscription box company, Simple Loose Leaf. A side note: I don’t drink many types of tea. My favorite tea is going to be anything with a metric ton of Assam in it. If you can see through the tea I do not want to drink it.
Next, is Sarah Flocks and her role is Chief “Keep your feet on the ground” Officer. She works full time for Dillard’s and attends college part time, all on top of her work at Simple Loose Leaf. Sarah’s involvement in day to day operations of Simple Loose Leaf is limited but her value to Simple Loose Leaf is immense. I, Andrew, suffer from having my head in the clouds more often than not and by bouncing ideas off Sarah I am able to keep my feet at least near the ground. Her preferred teas are red/rooibos teas.
Last we have Nicholas Flocks, the third and youngest of the three siblings. He is, to a large degree, my partner in crime. With his help Simple Loose Leaf has transformed from being just another poorly conceived tea club, to the only tea club that offers such a unique collection of teas and a premium member's benefits package. Nicholas has a degree in Finance from the University of Arkansas with a significant focus of Corporate Finance. He is the logistical mind behind Simple Loose Leaf. He makes sure the tea ships on time and that each of our many club members get the exact tea they want. His favorite teas are lightly scented greens, jasmine and magnolia.
Simple Loose Leaf is not just another simple tea club that uses its members to get rid of spare inventory that is about to expire. We are a Subscription Box company dedicated to enriching people’s lives through the love of tea. Tea is the world’s most consumed drink, behind water, for a reason. The variety of tea and the beautiful nuances of tea rival the great wines of history, and we are just at the beginning of the tea revolution here in the United States. Join us and become a tea drinking fool, just like us!
