Drink well. Be well.
I love the tea postcards that come in this box, they are always so dreamy.
Everything in my box!
There was a paper with info on the teas. This month’s teas are romantic and some feature rose.
I always receive a roll of tea bags. Fill them up with the tea, steep in a cup, then toss in the compost or trash.
Tay Tea Lovers Tea I didn’t link back to the Lovers Tea listed on the Tay Tea website because the ingredients are very different.
This version is made with vanilla rooibos, almonds, calendula, marigold, rose, hibiscus, and saffron. The flavor is similar to other rooibos and hibiscus blends – like tart cranberry juice with hay/herbal notes.
Beach House Teas Cape Lookout Mocha I am not a big fan of coffee and this was billed as an alternative for coffee lovers but I ended up loving it too!
The all organic ingredients are chicory root, cacao nibs, dark chocolate, and black tea. It had a deep, rich, smokey flavor and I added milk and sugar and it was so luxurious. Very nice. No actual coffee was in the ingredients, but my mom used to drink chicory “coffee” when she would try to give up coffee in the past.
Petali Teas Honeysuckle Rose smells like champagne and has a light, non-bitter flavor that is floral without being perfumey.
Green tea, roses, jasmine, and calendula are all that’s in here and it made for a sweet cup in the afternoon.
Aromatica Earl Grey Grapefruit smells just like its namesake fruit and is uplifting and bright.
Isn’t it lovely? Ceylon black tea, bergamot, ginger, orange peel, apple, lemongrass, cinnamon, coconut flakes, pink peppercorns, cardamom, flavor, sunflower blossoms, and red currants are the ingredients and I enjoyed the mild fruity flavor. I added sugar but no milk.
Amoda is a fun way to discover new teas without the commitment of large boxes or tins of tea. I appreciate that there is always a variety of teas to be discovered – black, green, and herbal. My very favorite one this month turned out the be the Cape Lookout Mocha – so tasty!!!
