I’m a big tea lover. I drink tea almost daily. Ever since I read about all the toxins in mainstream tea-bags (also here),I’ve stopped buying big-name tea bags. I am lucky to have an amazing local, organic tea shop where I can do all my tea-stocking.
However, I was delighted to hear my old friend Tegan told me about her company, Amoda Tea. Tegan and I used to take Chado (Japanese tea ceremony) lessons together. She was kind enough to let me try one of the packages.
Amoda means Joy, Peace, Serenity and Aroma in Sanskrit. Amoda tea offers exclusive craft teas from all over North America. You can shop on their online shop and pick whatever you fancy, but what makes Amoda different from other online tea shops is that they offer monthly subscription service for hand-picked collection of craft teas.
As you might already know, subscription services are huge these days. Amoda tea send you hand-picked collections of organic craft teas every month. I was thrilled when I learned about this.
Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: ordering tea online was a pain. We wanted more than our local options, but found ordering online to be frustrating, time consuming and expensive. We were tired of searching for reputable brands, paying separate shipping for every company’s order and really not truly knowing whether we’d even like any of the tea. (from Amoda website)
I feel their pain!
Few days later, I received my Amoda package. It came in a simple flat box. Amazing thing is, when you order their subscription boxes, shipping is free! Which is a great bonus for us living in Canada. (Shipping is SO expensive in Canada.)
Here are the teas that were included in my package (Winter Collection).
The collection comes with natural, unbleached, 100% biodegradable paper filters. They are made in Canada from Canadian and American wood pulp that is sustainable harvested.
I loved having the filters. I made different teas every day and just toss the used tea filters into my compost!
Monthly box is $18/month and you can cancel any time. This will also make great gift. I highly recommend it. Visit Amoda tea for details.
