Bokksu November 2016 Review and Coupon
The Cost: $39/month.
What You Get: You'll receive 13 to 15 authentic Japanese snacks sourced directly from Japan plus a tea pairing curated around a cultural theme.
Tea Pairing: Yamamotoyama Organic Sencha Green Tea- Steamed green tea with a grassy flavor. My husband says this is his favorite green tea so far. I'm partial to the Yamamotoyama brand and get the Gen-Maicha off of Amazon.
VERDICT: This box seemed a little light this month. I'd like to have seen a savory product included as well. Japanese snack boxes like this are more expensive because they work directly with snack makers in Japan that don't normally ship to the states. However, I do think there should be room for a little better value. It rounds out to about $2.50 per item this month. On the other hand, if you've been craving snacks you used to be able to get while living in Japan, this is probably the closest you're going to get. :)
