A lightly sweet, fruity rooibos tea. I can detect hibiscus, as well as notes of blueberry and, perhaps, honeysuckle. Very tasty. Used the shorter recommended steep time; would probably extend for a bolder flavor next go round.
Flavors: Blueberry, Fruit Punch, Hibiscus, Honeysuckle
This tea is bitter, and has very little tropical flavoring to it. The worst part was that as the tea cooled, it just kept getting weaker and weaker. I would only recommend this tea to people who are just trying to get into green tea and prefer to not have too much of a grassy taste to their teas.

Flavors: Bitter, Fruity
This is one of the teas I ordered in my big Mighty Leaf order a couple of months ago. I love the punchiness of Mighty Leaf black teas—the wake up and pay attention of their assertive bases.
This tea is very delicious. That said, I must have received the least flavoured batch of it. Though it is meant to be an Earl Grey with Chinese black and Indian teas with jasmine, I am not feeling the bergamot or jasmine. Yes, there is a vague sense of fruity sweetness, but to discern the bergamot and jasmine, you must first know it is there and then do the flavour equivalent of squinting to find it.
I never read tea descriptions or the reviews of others directly before I write a review of my own. If I hadn’t in this case, I never would have identified the Earl Grey-ness and jasmine here.
Flavors: Bergamot, Fruity, Jasmine
This is the camomile blend of all camomile blends in my humble opinion. The freshness of citrus, but here it is an abundance of citrus flavours.
Even the cursed lemongrass works here. The camomile is so enjoyable buoyed up by all these flavours around it. Slightest bit of tang from the rose hips and the slightest bit of a bite from something green.
I have been drinking this one for years. Such a delight.
The perfect evening tea.
Flavors: Citrus, Lemon, Lemon Zest, Rosehips
Another tea sent to me by my Secret Pumpkin. I really like this one! It has a nice orange flavor, but a creamy orange, almost like those old push up ice cream treats we used to get as kids. (can you tell I have a hint of my sense of smell today? It’s not super strong, but it’s present enough for me to taste some things)
Anyway. I realloy like this one. I might have to add this to my wish list.
Flavors: Creamy, Orange, Vanilla
My new housemate works at Peet’s Coffee, and they recently bought Mighty Leaf Tea Company. So, he sometimes brings home free tea!
This was his first gift to the house, so it will be the first one I try.
It’s been a while since I have had a rooibos based tea, so I am a bit excited. Although, it is blend with many other flavors, but that’s OK.
The first smell is really good. Very fruity, very tropical. I don’t smell much of the rooibos base, but maybe it will come out in the taste. Smells like a great hot weather, Summer tea.
The flavor confirms that. This will be a great dog days of Summer tea. The tropical fruity overtones dominate the palate, hiding the rooibos base. I would like to get more of that base into the mix, so I will experiment the next time I brew it.
Overall, a very good tea. Just wish it had more rooibos and less fruit.
Flavors: Fruit Punch, Fruity, Tropical
Good tea for working at night. Very relaxing. I didn’t want to drink Chamomile because I am not going to bed soon.
Light, fruity, flowery, round, and well-balanced. I like that it has a light fruity taste. It isn’t overbearing. It seems to have just a little bit of spice and apple. I think it is a good cold weather alternative to cider and chai.
I’m not sure if it’s still available.
Flavors: Flowers, Fruity, Spicy
I *think * this may be the tea I’m drinking. Traveling matcha tea box sample that came in a metallic blue bag and no name on it. It has a bit of sweetness on it’s own. I’m drinking it with some soy creamer which amps up the sweet and creamy. It’s really nice for an American public take on matcha. The front of the sip is a mellow on the matcha taste, but then come in stronger later in the sip and aftertaste. I can see how this would be a good one to add to smoothies and shakes without feeling like you are abusing finer top quality matcha.
The aroma of this tea, as the steam wanders up from my glass, is intoxicating: heavy rose and lychee carried on a bold Chinese black. The tea base is strong and rich layered with rose and lychee—actually, it is longan, but lychee and longan are very close relatives. Beautiful. There may be the slightest dusting of chocolate as well but in the distant background.
I do have Lychee tea from MLT somewhere here as well. Perhaps if I do a side by side taste taste, the flavours of both will further reveal themselves.
Flavors: Chocolate, Lychee, Rose
The first thing I noticed about this tea, right when I took it out of the packaging, was its scent. It was robustly rooibos, with a little extra hidden in there. My nose is not so keen, so I can’t fully explain it. I really liked the filterbags the tea comes in. They’re quite interesting, and I would actually prefer this kind to the conventional ones.
The flavor is nice, and the aftertaste even better. It’s warm and soothing, but at the back of the mouth, very cooling at the same time. It makes my mouth feel a bit refreshed. Definitely flowery and woody. I can’t say I’m completely wowed, but it is quite nice and relaxing to drink. I wouldn’t say it’s very sweet on its own (as I didn’t add sugar), but it’s not bitter either, more neutral.
Overall impression: Very woody, flowery taste. Nice scent. Cooling but warm.
Flavors: Flowers, Rooibos, Wet Wood
Yes. I just received my order from Mighty Leaf this week and am slowly going through all of my selection. Most of the teas I ordered are black base, so it will take me a long while to get to trying them all.
This tea is divine. I suggest letting the water cool a wee bit after it boils before adding it to the tea to prevent the rooibos bitterness happening. The flavour is deep, earthy, rich, with a good jolt of citrus and something a bit sweet and rose-flavoured. Also, the flavour is nice as it cools. I will be keeping this tea handy.
Flavors: Citrus, Earth, Rose
I was at a frozen yogurt place, and saw the options of tea they had, being all mighty leaf. I’ve always wondered about Houjicha and whether or not it does have a nuttier taste like people described. Well, I had a try western style keeping the bag in as I drank it. The leaves were fairly full in the sachet. I didn’t get too much of a smell because I was having some allergies. I also didn’t get too much of a taste either-it just tasted like a roasted green tea. But then I added a dash of honey, say a teaspoon, and it was much more complex. There was almost a butterscotch quality to it that I didn’t expect. It wasn’t overly sweet, not overly smokey. I enjoyed it, and it certainly satisfied my cravings for something smooth.
It’s a sad bit that the tea came out more with the honey. I prefer my teas without sweetener, but this one depended on the honey as a spotlight for the other notes. I’d maybe recommend it to a friend or someone who wants to try something different. However, this is great yet by no means a “wow”.
Flavors: Butterscotch, Green, Nuts, Roasted
Excellent. Nice true rich lychee and black tea flavour balance. I do love black teas. Lately, I have been drinking mostly David’s flavoured teas, so I have not had all that much caffeine. And here, wow! I steeped three times. Even the third steeping had a nice, but milder, full flavour. Well done, Mighty Leaf. I think I might want to always have this one on hand. A great way to start the day.
Flavors: Lychee, Rose
