drank Honeybush Haze by Amoda Tea

The November Amoda box came today! (Well, technically … yesterday, since it’s now after midnight) I was so excited to see that all three teas were from companies I hadn’t tried teas from previously … including this one which was blended by the people at Amoda!

This smells amazing. It really smells like warm apple crumble! And it tastes like it too. Sweet, apple-y, and nutty. I love that they used green honeybush and rooibos in this blend – it gives a slight nutty flavor but more of a fruity tone – although the oxidized leaves might have created an interesting flavor too. Overall, it tastes sweet, light and yummy! Very dessert-y.

Edited to add: Correction … this tea wasn’t blended by Amoda, but, chosen by a Tea Sommelier based upon the company’s personality. It’s still an amazing tea!

Canada Post is so slow! I can’t believe you haven’t received your box yet Sil!

Thank you LiberTEAS for setting up the page for this tea! We really need to find the time to get more active on Steepster! It’s well worth it.

The US will always get it before us Sil except with DT because they’re in Canada and so we get it faster than the US. Be patient it will come.

Bio

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:
http://sororiteasisters.com

I also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:
http://www.teareviewblog.com

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination.

*

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

*

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
