Dyed poplar sounds great. Locally I can get brown birch at a cheap price and I’ve got alder cheap in the past but for some reason it’s not stocked where I’ve shopped anymore. What you can get and what you’ll pay varies regionally. Sanding time will get ya’ too if you’re not equipped to automate it or you choose a wood that’s too hard for what your client is willing to pay for to compensate you for your time.

Try pricing out some different ideas for the client. His product may not be high end enough to afford the aesthetic qualities in wood he has a taste for. That’s clients, champagne tastes on a budget.

BTW, those foreign tea boxes are made of something like monkey pod or meranti I think. Soft, fast growing hardwoods.
