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
1 tsp per 8 oz cup
From The Capilano:

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.
