Thoughts on the different teas:

Green tea with jasmine – This tasted floral and light. I added a teaspoon of sugar to make it sweeter although you don’t really need to do that (I just have a sweet tooth!) I would say this has got to be my favourite and has encourage me to try other green teas.
Ceylon tea – I decided to try this tea in the morning as the description says it has a traditional flavour. I am glad I chose this time of day as I found it quite strong and acted as a nice kick to help wake me up, the best way to describe the taste would be earthy and traditional.
Earl grey 1833 – This particular earl grey tea smelt and tasted rather citrus and fresh; it almost reminded me of being at a spa and in total relaxation. This is great for those days when you need a light and refreshing drink.
Bright afternoon – This is probably my least favourite tea from this month’s box as it was very strong, almost smoky flavoured. I prefer a lighter fresh flavour.
Morgans brew tea – I can see myself drinking this most mornings from now on as it is a traditional flavour, strong and refreshing. I added milk and sugar but you can enjoy it without too.
Safari oolong – I would describe this tea as being quite floral with a hint of nut. I added a teaspoon of sugar to sweeten it, I will definitely be drinking more of this one!

Would I recommend Tea Tourist?

Considering almost all of these blends of tea only come in larger bags costing more, I would say this box is perfect for anyone looking to try new blends without having to spend a lot of money. It gives you the chance to try 6 different tea blends for minimal cost! If you were to buy them yourself you could be forking out money for something you may potentially not like. By buying this box you can try to taste different options before buying a full size.
So yes, I would recommend the tea tourist box!
