It is a beautiful day outside, full of sunshine and a soft breeze. I am going to try to get a lot of homework done so that I can take the dogs for a nice long walk this evening. This is the first time this year that I’ve felt like fall is just around the corner. I walked outside this morning to leaves blowing around and that chill in the air that always says fall is on it’s way.

I got this tea in a variety box of Mighty Leaf blends, but I believe this is the first time that I’ve tried it. I like that Mighty Leaf uses such nice tea leaves – the little pouch always expands a lot in the water and the leaves are a nice size and look just like a loose-leaf tea. But conveniently in a pouch, it’s perfect. I wasn’t expecting anything special with this one, but it is delicious. It has an almost Earl Grey like quality to it, but more of a sweet orange and cream flavor. The jasmine flowers give it a little floralness which is nice. I will definitely pick up another box of this one the next time I see it in the store!

-Square silken tea pouch with medium black tea leaves and twigs and white petals.
-Teabag smells lightly of sweet orange. Tea liquor aroma is of vanilla and citrus.
-Tea liquor is a thick dark brown color.
-Soft orange and Earl Grey flavor and finish. Light jasmine and vanilla aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Very good tea. A creamy cup. Soft orange and cream flavor with a hint of jasmine.

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
