Amoda Tea is a Canadian premium tea subscription. Each month hand-selected teas are sent out, from all over North America and beyond. They source the tea from small companies to support them and help them grow. There are two flavours of box available — the original and low-caffeine. Both cost $20, have free shipping to Canada/US (no international shipping yet), and you can also add on some extra bonuses like a travel set, a teaspoon, or more filters if you are a tea-drinking monster like me. They also have a tasty tea guarantee — if you don’t like a tea in your box, they’ll replace it in your next box!
This is a review of the original box.

Every month, they also send a super cute tea postcard! I send these to my tea-loving friends and my penpals. They also always send paper filters in case you’re new to loose leaf tea and don’t have an infuser yet.
Here’s this month’s teas!
Cleanse (Amoda) — An in-house herbal blend by Amoda. This has flowers, berries, as well as ginger and licorice. It smells fragrant and was very calming.
Khumbu (Nepali Teas) — A black tea from Nepal. This is a plain tea that has a malty flavour. It tastes good with a bit of honey.
Harry Peachy — A blend of green, white, and oolong teas. It has real pieces of peach in it, and the flavour is light and sweet. I’ve never tried a blend like this before, and the green tea complements the others. (I am not a huge green tea fan, so that’s a win!)
Glazed Pineapple — A green tea with pineapple. As a green tea, it is a nice clean taste, but the pineapple didn’t do much to improve it for me and my picky palate.
Amoda always manages to curate some truly special teas every month. I don’t always love the teas but being able to taste and try a small amount without committing is a really awesome experience. Amoda sells all of their teas on their website, so if you have a craving it’s easy to get your hands on more! I’ve been cutting caffeine out of my diet and I find that I can still enjoy some of the selections they send, though I would love to give their caffeine free box a try sometime in the future!
