This box was sent to us for review purposes. (Check out the review process post to learn more about how we review boxes).
The Subscription: Amoda Tea
The Cost: $18/month with free shipping
The Products: 3-cup portions of four different tea blends
Ships to: US & Canada
Every Amoda Tea box comes with an info card that lists and describes each tea blend featured.
This Ball & Chain tea is made with organic Se Chung oolong, medjool dates, and marigolds. I haven’t tried this one yet, but it smells really good (especially because of the dates).
The Ginger Cream tea is the most caffeinated blend in the box, and is made with black tea, vanilla bean, and ginger pieces. I tend to like teas that have ginger in them, and this one’s no exception!
Wild Woman is a blend of Ceylon tea, wild blueberries, black currants, hibiscus, elderberries, and cornflower petals. This tea has some of my favorite ingredients in a tea blend (I love berry and floral teas), and it’s actually my favorite in the box!
The Celebration Medley is caffeine-free (since it’s made with rooibos tea) and has apple, orange, cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and rose in it. This is perfect for the winter/holiday months. All the spices make this tea very warm and cozy, and it’s my second favorite!
Also included was a little roll of tea napkins and a small, spiced marshmallow from Sweet Petite Confections (which I couldn’t find in their online shop).
Verdict: I really like Amoda Teas. The packaging is really smart – I love that each bag of tea has portion measurements, steeping times, and tells you when to add the tea to the water (temperature guide). The selection of teas was varied, and I was glad to see that they included a “holiday” tea (the Celebration Medley) as well.
