Ah, I remember now why I didn’t order this in my jusTea buy a few months back. While I love the company and want to support it in any way that I can, most of their offerings are just outside my interest… and so I share it with friends and colleagues around the world.

This came in the last (May 2014) Amoda box. Lots of flowers in the blend, which in a chai I’m actually cool with; I find it adds a hint of smooth sweetness to the blend (usually). In this case, that’s exactly what it does, and I quite like it. I’ve obviously had it before from the rating, and I’ll keep it at that, however I doubt I’d go out of my way to order this. I do like it, it’s a very, very good chai.. just outside my tastes at this time.

Bummer that Amoda canceled their program. Great price point for a monthly sampler. I’m hoping they come back with something as good or better for us all :)

Handmade tea has a good price one.

They sound interesting, but sadly it’s US only. At least Amoda was in Vancouver so it gave us Canadians an option. Fingers crossed that their new program is as good or better than the current one!

Bio

A few years ago, the obsession with tea started. The cupboard got bigger and bigger, more swaps occurred, group buys, secret rendezvous with local teapassionistas… and that’s how you end up with 500+ different kinds of tea in your home. At one time.

Now, it’s purge time. Time to gather what’s needed and let go of the rest. Almost all of the tea was given away, sold, or otherwise shared. A few relics still remain. It’s still a challenge to avoid the chipmunk-like hoarding of The Teas, yet, the lightness of being from having so little compels me more. And so, I’m happy to share (anytime!) and will occasionally desire small amounts of tea for swaps, just to try.

As for the day-to-day stuff, I’m focused almost entirely on Love, (yes, with a capital L), Spirit/Self, transformation, and work (dating columnist and consultant).

No-can-do: lavender, overly floral (French florals, or florals that are creamy rather than, well, floral work well!), sugar, Splenda, all grains.

Love: fruity, dessert, chai, spicy, all types of tea.
