Thésaurus Tea’s Uma Gahd (ft. Amoda Tea) | Tea Review

by Tea in Spoons

A few weeks ago, I tasted one of Thésaurus Tea blends and when I saw the description on this one, I had to try it as well!

Description: “A smooth and velvety white tea is blended with juicy blackberries and sour lemons.”

Instructions: 1 tps | 8 oz | 80°C/176°F | 3-5 minutes

Review: This tea blend was a part of Amoda Tea’s 2022 August subscription box. The blend was named after Uma Gahd, in honour of Thésaurus Tea’s favourite Canadian Drag Queen! The dry blend had a floral, berry, and herbaceous smell. It looked like a spring garden with the scattering of flower petals and small berries against the white tea buds and leaves.

Once the water hit the dry blend, there was a lemon/citrusy, berry, and hay smell in the air. The liquor started as reddish-purple colour which gradually became a blue/indigo colour. It tasted juicy, fruity, lemon/citrus, and floral which reminded me of a berry jam. Since the description mention that the blend could be iced, I put the steeped blend into the fridge overnight. When cooled, the blend had more of an emphasis on fruity and floral notes. The wet blend smelled like the dry blend – floral and fruity.

Overall, the range of flavours was fun and I tasted what was noted in the description, I enjoyed watching the liquor transform in colour and how vibrant the colour was. The final purple/indigo colour did seem to be largely dependent on how many blue pea flowers or berries were in the spoonful of tea. So, it was a surprise every cup! This would be a nice blend for someone who is into citrus, floral, or berry blends or like brightly coloured liquors (3.5/5 rating).
