Cascade Shooting Star – Buy 10 g for $3.00
I love any tea that has toasted rice because it is such an interesting roasty flavor for a tea. This is an especially unique blend because those toasted, earthy notes are blended with tropical fruity tones and loads of greenery. This one is unlike any other tea I have ever had and if you love super unusual and slightly odd teas, this is a winner!
Black Mate Morning – Buy 50 g for $13.00
I adored this blend. The scent alone is enough to bring a smile to my face! It smells like dried sweetgrass and hay, and spring. It was a complex blend of lemons, mint, and dried sweet greens. It is also a great way to really boost your caffeine energy in the middle of the day.
Dream Raspberry Cream – Buy 50 g for $8.00
I was very impressed by how natural and authentic the raspberry flavor was in this blend. So many teas get it wrong! This berry is super soft and mild, and much more aromatic than actually sweet. I plan on also trying this iced. It would lend itself well to a lemon slice!
Dusk – Buy 50 g for $11.00
This pretty yellow tea gets that happy color from the included turmeric. This was by far the most medicinal tea this month, and it had a very herbal vibe to it, along with its smooth mouthfeel. Although it was very mild, this Ayurveda inspired brew does contain ginger, which blended exceptionally well with the turmeric and lemongrass.
Verdict: Amoda Tea tends to send such beautiful teas. I recommend using clear glass to enjoy them because the brewing visuals are almost as wonderful as the teas themselves. I actually loved all 4 teas sent this month, though if I had to pick a favorite, it would be the Mate. The curation this month was very well rounded, no two teas were very alike! This is a great sub for the tea lover who cherishes unique, small-batch blends.
