I just bought a tin of various Mighty Leaf Teas from Nordstrom’s E-Bar coffee shop. This one has a nice aroma blend of apple and orange when dry. Once in the hot water, the hibiscus and rose hips start bleeding rose color into the water, but complete submersion gives it a nice reddish-gold color like mild honey.
I find the Egyptian chamomile they use to be a lot milder than German, and the citrus is really what comes out in this tea. The aroma really makes you notice the little pieces of orange rind and bits of lemongrass. I do really like this brad’s use of silk mesh bags because you don’t get the stray leafage in your tea. It strains it perfectly.
Upon sipping, the chamomile taste is much more apparent than it is in the scent. It balances the citrus to the point where I can’t really taste either one over the other, and the rose hips come out nicely with a tiny bit of tanginess. Lightly astringent, I enjoy this tea’s effect. I can also imagine it would settle an upset tummy quite well. Afternoon to evening for this one, it’s definitely going to mellow you out.
