When Canadian based Amoda Tea offered me a chance to try their monthly tea tasting boxes I jumped at the chance. I had heard really good things about their subscription service, especially from Erin of the awesome video blog Erin’s Tea. The first thing that I noticed was how nice the packaging was. The three generously sized tea samples were wrapped in tissue paper with decorative twine. A colorful and attractive booklet gave tasting notes on each tea as well as info on the companies that they were sourced from. Each sample was from a different company. Each month allows you to explore new and different teas. This is the one thing that set this box apart from others that I have seen. The box I received was actually their January shipment and included Pistachio Ice Cream from Butiki Teas, Oolong Creme from Sloan Fine Tea Merchants and Chiran Sencha from O5 Teas. I’ll be sure to link the reviews of those teas here once they have been published. Mother’s Day is just around the corner and this would make a perfect gift for a tea lover. Sadly my own mom would rather have a box of green tea bags but c’est la vie.
