Earth Fare, our regional Whole Foods-style grocery, had a sale on Mighty Leaf Teas so I brought their Vanilla Bean since I’m running low on blacks. I’ve never tried Mighty Leaf Teas before. This is the first bagged tea that I can remember having visibly whole leaves. After steeping, when I pulled the bagged out, it was plumped to the maximum by the leaves. The tea had a strong black tea smell with a hint of floral vanilla and was dark in color. The taste was not so good. It was strongly astringent black with barely a vanilla hint, very dry and bitter to drink. I am hoping the brewing for less time will improve it.

I remember being greatly disappointed in this blend when I tried it. There is a lot of fuss over Mighty Leaf Teas, and I just don’t get it! I haven’t had one yet that I loved.

Try it with milk, it’s much better that way IMO. :)

I’ll do that with my next cup, Jillian. Thanks.

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
