The monthly box contains sample size pouches of four different loose leaf teas that will yield approximately 12 cups of tea. Each sample pouch includes approximately 10 grams of tea. 

Explore the world's best tasting teas and the talented, small-batch brands that produce them. Experience teas you may never discover on your own.

The Amoda Tea packages comes in a slim cardboard mailer that fits into a condo sized mailbox.

Every month  you receive four sample pouches of tea, paper tea filters, and tasting notes. As a bonus, Amoda also includes a tea themed postcard. 

Winterwoods Tea Company Homestead Peach (10g, $4)
This blend contains organic strawberry leaf, dried peaches, organic hibiscus, organic lemon peel, organic orange peel, organic rose hips, and pure peach extract. Here are the tasting notes from Amoda:
Rich peach notes, reminiscent of grilled peaches, blended with dark fruits, hibiscus and rose hips. This is an amazing tea to transition to Fall. You'll love the tangy citrus finish too. This tea reminds us of home. It’s comforting and familiar. 
This one was great iced and no sweetener was needed. Winterwoods Tea Company is based in Spokane, Washington. Without Amoda, we would never have found this one!

Naked Teas Berry Maple Waffles (10g, $3)
This tea contains all organic ingredients, including premium Ceylon black tea, diced apples, cranberries, blueberries, hibiscus, blue cornflowers, and rose petals. From Amoda:
This is how we like our waffles: a spoonful of berries and just a drizzle of maple syrup, so we can still taste the goodness and the crispness of the waffle! That's just what this tea is like. All the goodness of the toppings.. apple-y sweetness, dark berries with maple drizzle, but with the distinct notes of the ceylon tea below. Yum.
I really got the apple and berry flavour out of this one. It was a nice and didn't need a drop of sweetener. Naked Teas is based in Vancouver, just like Amoda.

Winterwoods Tea Company Green Bluff Green (10g, $4)
This blend includes all organic ingredients such as jasmine green tea, green rooibos, jasmine flowers, dried apple, and calendula. According to Amoda:
A beautiful jasmine green tea blended with fragrant green rooibos. Floral and sweet. This has two different green teas in the blend and handpicked, organic Washington grown apples. Perfect to calm you down on stressful work days. High in antioxidants and low in caffeine.

Tea Geek'ery Teana Colada (10g, $3.50)
This blend is simply a mixture of organic coconut, vanilla and organic rooibos. Amoda describes it as:
Heavenly vanilla, creamy coconut and fragrant red rooibos - the perfect example of how simple can become amazing with high quality ingredients and mindful blending. A caffeine-free tea to sip at any time of day.
It smells delicious, and I tried it both hot and iced. I preferred iced, with a drop of coconut syrup for sweetener. Tea Geek'ery is based in Nova Scotia!

The September Amoda Tea box contained four sample pouches of tea, totalling 40 grams. The value of the tea is about $14.50 Canadian. Amoda Tea then adds in a bundle of paper tea filters, and a sheet of tasting notes and brewing instructions. For $18 per month, you get a complete package, including shipping across Canada. It's a great way to sample new and exciting teas from tea companies around North America.
