Let me tell you how excited I am…down to 193 teas in my cupboard! Now, that fully ignores the umpteen packages on their way but I choose to ignore that since i may not see them before i leave lol. What’s exciting is that I still have a few new teas in my cupboard that I haven’ yet gotten around to trying. THIS is one of those teas! I received this one some time ago as part of my Amoda tea box which i HIGHLY recommend, ESP for those of you in Canada. Mostly, because we don’t have too many options in Canada for this sort of thing that isn’t stupidly expensive. With Amoda it’s like 15/month, includes shipping and they do up a nice box and for the 3 months i had it, wasn’t really disappointed with any of the teas and got to branch out a bunch from what my usual comfort level is. The only reason i paused that box was because I decided to treat myself to the Verdant reserve club box during the winter months since I prefer the darker blends. Come spring i’ll likely be switching back to Amoda haha.

Soooo i digress….back to this tea! Chamomille isn’t really something i love or want. I don’t mind having a few non caffinated teas in my cupboard but largely chamomille irritates me with all it’s flower bits that make a mess in my strainer. :)

This tea is like you usual boring chamomile blend but with a hint of something else. I’m not getting orange exactly, though that could just be that i missed getting some into this cup. The flowers and bits are large and hard to get a good sense of a teaspoon. What i do get is the mint, hiding out behind the chamomille taste and it reminds me slightly of lil leapin’ lordy lou from Keen Tea Thyme’s 12 days swap with us. But clearly not as intense of a mint :) Anyway…as far as chamomille’s go, i prefer Butiki’s Citrus Dream but this isn’t a bad little tea.

Thanks Amoda!

Amoda is only $15/month??

Dude. I am seriously considering the 4-month plan right now…

Sil

Yeah it s a fantastic deal IMO. You saw the packages when you were here….three of those a month and they’re big enough to get multiple cups to try as well Share…I also really like getting things from different companies in the us and Canada. :)

They also have great customer service….

I’m really considering it, but I’m also trying to cut back on my tea spending. If I can go a few weeks just drinking what I already have, maybe I could justify it.

Kittenna

Unfortunately for me, tea spending is not so much the issue as tea stash size is. But that’s not a ton of tea each month, and it’s awesome that they send you enough for multiple cups, but not so much that you’re stuck with a ton if you hate it. And I’m thinking, $14/month, let’s subtract, say, $2 for shipping, so it’s pretty much $4/packet. Well, I’m willing to pay $2/14g packet from Della Terra; which is equivalent to $3/20g packet. So the cost is hardly much off that. I’ll be surprised if I don’t cave within the day.

Sil

Haha i like your logic Kittenna :) I was kinda thinking about it like, it’s cheaper than going to the movies once haha.

Kamyria

What? What am I hearing here? I had no idea about Amoda, it sounds exciting… I’m going to check it out now :)

Sil

Kamyria – oh do! They will for sure be getting my business again once i finish up winter with verdant’s reserve club. Really economical and so far i have enjoyed 2 or more teas a great deal each month. And since i’m a relative newbie in terms of teas from companies, it’s a great way to try out different companies!

Kamyria

Oh, I see you’re part of the elite Sil… Verdant Reserve Club is currently full… What does that cost per month if you don’t mind me asking? They don’t have the price listed at the moment. And as to Amoda… I checked it out… Please someone hide my purse from me! I even cancelled a useless subscription I had going to make place for this… lol

Price wise it’s not too bad… I subtract $5 for shipping, because that’s the cheapest shipping I’ve seen so far, and so I’m looking at $10/month for 60g of tea. Not too bad and I get to check out teas from different companies. I like, I like.. :)

Sil

Kam – the reserve club is 45/month. Hence the reason i had to cancel my amoda subscription temporarily. This is only the second month i’ve had it, and because i prefer blacks and “winter” teas, I’ll likely only have it until the spring since i’m not overly a fan of spring teas. Amoda has got their crap together ESP for canadians as i find even shipping within canada it’s usually not free until you spend 50. :(

I’ve been seriously thinking about this. Like Kittenna, it’s more of a stash size thing for me. And that there are SO many other companies I’d like to try.

Sil

i recommend it :)

Kittenna

I just ordered it, hahahahahaha.

So no real clue what to write about myself here. A friend got me into drinking loose tea and it’s something I thoroughly enjoy though I have nowhere near the experience that many folks on the boards seem to have.

My other interests are cycling, reading, board games, disney cruises, world of warcraft and dancing – in no particular order. I love travelling and am currently working on trying to get my other half to as many place in the world as possible.
