Amoda Tea Order Arrived From Canada

My Amoda tea order arrived Monday! If you are not familiar with Amoda, they are a delightful Canadian company focused on teas crafted by independent tea makers. Included in this order:

Austrian Orange
Brambleberry Rain
Royal Irish
Creme de Menthe
Mandarin Spice

Red Blossom Tea Company Order

It is no secret that one of my favorite tea vendors is Red Blossom Tea Company. Late last week I placed my first order of the year (and surprisingly came away with only 2 teas). The package arrived today – talk about fast shipping! Included in this order:

Gold Thread Reserve – Spring 2016
Organic Golden Monkey – April 2016
Sample of Golden Monkey First Pick
Sample of Dark Roast Tieguanyin

I first reviewed Gold Thread Reserve on August 13, 2014. As soon as I have time I will do a proper tasting and post a new review. I’m very curious to see how this harvest measures up.

On a sad note, they no longer sell Organic Formosa Red #18, which was quite possibly my favorite tea of all time. You can read my previous review of this unique tea here.

Tea From Vietnam

I’ve placed an order for tea from Vietnam at the appropriately named So few people in the west get to expereience tea from this region so I am excited for this opportunity to review several delicious-sounding teas! My order includes:

Dragoncloud Green
Fish Hook Green
Golden Lily (Jin Xuan) Milk Oolong

These teas come directly from Vietnam, so it might be 2-4 weeks before I receive them. I’ll post reviews as soon as possible, I am looking forward to the experience!
