From The Capilano

Amoda Tea Monthly Box – September 2015

A blend of Chinese Mao Jian green tea and elderberries. Mao jian is a sweet, delicate tea with pleasant vegetal flavours of sweet peas, asparagus and bamboo and light florals. Elderberries are an uncommon ingredient, but a healthy one that offers us a berry flavour that’s very complementary to the green tea and a faint tartness. A fantastic green tea!

Ingredients: Organic mao jian green tea, elderberries

Steep It
1 tsp per 8 oz cup
71°C/160°F
2-3 minutes

From The Capilano:

Organic Mao Jian Green Tea with Elder Berries

Strong, clean and green, without the bitter. The sweet undertones of this tea, paired with the light flavours of elder berry become mildly floral when steeped to perfection. High in antioxidants while medium in caffeine – enjoy a worry-free power-up after lunch, all in the name of self-care alchemy.

“There is something in the nature of tea that leads us into a world of quiet contemplation of life.” Lin Yutang, The Importance of Living, 1937

This tea is a blend of Chinese Mao Jian and elderberries.

The scent of the steeped tea is green and lovely. There is the vaguest suggestion of pepper and fruit, but just the slightest bit.

The elderberries are meant to impart mild tartness. I am not tasting any tartness, just the sweet vegetal flavours and the slightest floral notes.

An enjoyable cup of green tea.

I’m unfamiliar with the elderberry so I’m not sure if it is meant to taste fruity or herbaceous. I can taste the roastiness of the green tea, slightly tannic, but not much else. No fruitiness or anything extra. Again, green teas are not my favorite so I’m sure I’m not the best judge.

Flavors: Roasted, Tannic
