This Tea was Crafted for the December Box for Amoda Teas!
As many of you may already be aware, I was asked to craft the teas for the Amoda Tea December 2019 box! What an awesome honor it was to be able to craft these teas because back in my tea reviewer days, I was a subscriber to Amoda & I loved that subscription (almost as much as I loved my 52Teas subscription!) Over those years, I subscribed to many different tea services, but my top two favorites were 52Teas and Amoda Tea - so being able to craft one of their boxes was so thrilling for me - it was also a tremendous honor to be able to work with Lu Ann (aka @teaaholic from The Cup of Life blog!) who is the new curator for Amoda Tea. Back when I was a subscriber, it was a small two-person enterprise, but it is apparently growing and I'm so happy that the company is doing so well!
So, for the December boxes, I crafted five new teas and reblended one of our customer favorites: Pancake Breakfast Black Tea (which is, incidentally, part of our D's Teas - aka our permanent collection). This - our Eggnog Marshmallow Treat Genmaicha - is the first of those five teas that we're posting on our website as it is the first to sell out at Amoda Teas! Because this is a custom tea crafted for Amoda Teas, it is a very limited edition - so once this tea sells out here, it's GONE!
This one starts with our organic Japanese Genmaicha - sweet green tea leaves blended with popped and toasted brown rice. It's the perfect base for our Marshmallow Treat blend - then I added some eggnog essence and a bit of nutmeg because I prefer my eggnog with nutmeg. I love the way this one came out - super creamy & delicious!
This is an organic, VEGAN, gluten-free & allergen-free tea.
