Naked Teas Maple Fudge Tea What an interesting flavor! The teas this month celebrate Canada (where this subscription box is located) and so maple is very fitting.
Black tea, calendula, cocoa nibs, orange peel, apple, and flavoring give this tea a light body but sweet taste. Of course, I added sugar and milk so it was more like dessert and caught flavors of maple and maybe a bit of spice.
Naturel Tea Peach Blossom Tea What an amazing tea! I like peach flavor but sometimes it’s too much. This one was just right.
White tea is the base so make sure to use water that isn’t boiling or your tea may get bitter. I enjoyed it hot but then forgot about it and took a sip of cool tea and the flavor really popped so I would recommend this one for iced tea too!
Naked Teas Canada Ehh! Tea is a rooibos-based tea, which means it is caffeine-free and is heartier than the usual herbal teas.
Rooibos and honeybush are similar herby bushes with slightly different flavor profiles. The other ingredients are goji berries, apple, ginger, rose hips, rose petals, cinnamon, and natural flavoring. It tasted like a cinnamon apple herbal but with nutty notes and a maple flavor. I didn’t even add sugar!
Beach House Teas Fiery Forest Tea After the beach, the mountains are my favorite place to be. I couldn’t believe it when I saw that this blend has Pacific Northwest cedar tips in the mix!
It also has chamomile, lemon verbena, orange peel, rosemary, and cinnamon chips. It has a nice hint of spice from the cinnamon and a touch of citrus notes.
Amoda is a great way to sample flavored teas without first purchasing a large bag from unknown vendors. The flavors and ingredients are natural and innovative. Although I am American I enjoyed the ode to Canada and felt they showcased some amazing Canadian tea brands.
