Amoda Tea is a Canadian tea company, based in Vancouver. Along with an retail e-shop, they also offer a monthly tea subscription box. The goal of Amoda Tea's Monthly Box is to allow you to easily sample unique teas from many different tea blenders, sourced from across the continent. The monthly box contains sample size pouches of four different loose leaf teas that will yield 3-5 cups of tea each. Each sample pouch includes approximately 10 grams of tea. Select between the Original Tea Box or the Low Caffeine option.

 Each package includes a tea-themed postcard and a roll of 20 paper tea filters.

May's box explores the "lighter side of tea".

Aromatica Fine Tea - Sea Breeze
A sweet citrus infusion with hints of spicy ginger, refreshing mint and delicious apple. The perfect alternative to lemonade as it really doesn't need any extra sweetener. Let this steep extra long to extract the full flavour.
This is an original blend from Aromatica Fine Teas, based in Chilliwack, BC. Along with ginger, mint, and apple, this blend also includes lemongrass, orange peel, and lemon peel. I caught the mint right away when I opened the bag. It was a very refreshing tea, with mint and lemon the dominant flavours, and it was perfectly sweet. No sugar needed!

Beach House Teas Peninsula High Tide
An organic and artisanal peaches and cream blend. We love that they use peaches grown locally to them in Washington state. We also love that they're not overpowering the delicate flavours of the white tea base.
Beach House Teas from Washington state made this 100% organic blend using peony white tea, rose hips and Washington peaches. They say it's tasty hot or cold, and suggest brewing it strong to infuse a cocktail.

Nepali Tea Traders Emerald Spring
Made from delicate first growth tea leaves, this is a mild green tea, yet has some definite complexities to the flavour and aroma. Can you smell wildflowers, taste any roasted notes or gentle spring greens?
Nepali Tea Traders is based in Colorado. Amoda says we are very luck to get this "first flush" selection, as only a small amount is produced each spring. This one really surprised me, in a good way. I got a light green tea taste, with a strong honey aftertaste. It was actually quite delightful! 

Nepali Tea Traders Manaslu Spring Tippy
A classic first flush Nepalese black tea. The Very first buds and new leaves are used so they look more like a white tea. The liquor is light in colour and flavour is so interesting and layered with spring greens and honey.
This is another early harvest tea, from the mountains of Nepal. Nepali Tea Traders says there are subtle notes of spearmint, but I didn't detect that.

The May Amoda Tea box included four teas from around the world. These teas are all light, fruity, low caffeine options, that work well hot or iced. It's the perfect collection for spring and warmer weather. There's enough tea here for about 20 cups!
