Dose in a Box Review, By Tatyana Saba

My friend, Alyssa and I decided to check out Dose in a Box, a smaller version of the trendy Coffee Dose located right smack in the middle of Irvine Corporate Park.

It hides right between two tall glass buildings which, once our eyes laid eyes upon the trailer, brightens the dull atmosphere that mutters business. If girls were to decorate a desert, it’d look like this: pastel pink trimmed with black and white stripes and is accompanied by a few very green cactuses. This place is also pet friendly, as I noticed a water bowl and multiple daybeds for your pups and pals (or other creatures) to rest upon while you enjoy your treat(s)!

 It was difficult to choose from their menu of specialty drinks as there were so many options that sounded delightful. I ended up ordering Mary Matcha (tea) and she, The Beauty (coffee). Both were incredibly delicious and refreshing. Each weightlessly sweet, just enough to satisfy my sweet tooth but not too much to rot out! The lavender syrup was a nice touch to my Matcha as well as the rose to her coffee.

Coffee Dose/Dose in a Box used to offer the option of adding a few drops of the CBD “Anti-Bitch Serum” to their beverages, but they no longer do that –HOWEVER, I was able to buy the bottle at a reasonable price for its size; $64.65 with tax for 1oz of 500MG of CBD. The serum ingredients include MCT oil (coconut), hemp extract and terpenes. The oil is a touch on the heavy side and tastes of orange blossoms, no trace of the taste of coconut for you non-coconut fans!


When we added the serum to our drinks, the chemistry was wonderfully light and subtle. Interestingly, when I tried the “Anti-Bitch Serum” with my everyday coffee at home, the flavors did not blend. Although, I recommend taking a full dose or two by itself when you have a headache, a natural go-to remedy for everyday mundane pain!

As we continued to slurp our drinks, we decided to try the Shroom shots. I, the Inner Energy which has Cordyceps & Lions Mane and she the Golden Immunity which has Turkey Tail. The mix wasn’t terrible, One could say that we were drinking for our health, not for flavor.

Overall, I would certainly return as their drinks were quite delicious and fresh. But next time, I look forward to trying their snacks and meals!
