Mighty Leaf Tea

I’m not normally a fan of just plain chamomile tea but I do like the soothing effect that it provides. This tea is perfect for that because I get enough of the buttery, apple-like flavor of the chamomile but the hint of juicy citrus keeps it from being too bland or meal in flavor. A cup of this before bed, or on a lazy weekend morning is absolutely divine. I take mine as is, but if you like a hint of sweetener I suggest a dot or two of agave nectar.
This is absolutely one of my favorite teas. The aroma from the bag alone makes me want to just breathe it in. The mix of tropical fruits and actual pieces like pineapple bits makes this a delicious entry tea into the world of green tea. Unlike others who have said they felt the green tea taste was too strong I find it to be a mellow backdrop for the fresh fruity flavors. Mighty Leaf teas are hand-picked, hand-crafted and placed in hand-sewn silken pouches so it’s important to go by the brewing instructions they provide.
When I first heard the combination of orange, vanilla and jasmine, I wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about it. After one sniff, and several sips later I was hooked. Orange Dulce is a must-have in the cupboard at all times. A perfect alternative to coffee when you need a little boost, this flavored black tea is a divine treat.
Rachel Ray drinks Mighty Leaf Organic Earl Grey during the taping of her show and while on set, and we can see why! For those who enjoy Earl Grey this is the best I’ve found. The rich organic black tea leaves are accentuated by the organic bergamot. The bergamot is not overpowering or bitter, like some Earl Grey teas. This tea can be enjoyed as is, or with a splash of milk. Either way, you can’t go wrong with this Earl Grey.
I found the iced style of this on clearance at Kroger and I decided I tried it out, stuck two bags in a gallon jug, filled it up with water and waited. What I didn’t realize is that its meant to be hot brewed and then chilled (which is realistically not going to happen and this is probably what I would’ve done anyway) Drinking my first cup of it today, It tastes very mild. I’m assuming thats because the heat wasn’t there to bring out the louder flavors. The scent is really peachy, but the flavor itself is mostly mild black tea. At any rate, I’m getting two pitchers of tea out of this box (gallon size) For two dollars, I don’t mind it.
This is from the “ML Collection Boutique” on MightyLeaf.com. (I think the difference between the ML Collection and their other teas is the slightly more fancy packing!) Anyway, this has lemongrass in it and I love lemongrass. There is also a nice spearmint taste to the infusion. It is nice and lite and adds to the common held belief that chamomile is a relaxing tea. (I don’t know why some places spell chamomile with the “h” and other leave it out.)
By the way, the correct title of this tea is citron, not citrus. Nonetheless, the ingredients are the same between Mighty Leaf Chamomile Citrus and this one. Go figure. Must be the ML in the name.
I’m thinking I will buy a tea like this again, but perhaps I will try a different vendor.
Tasty! It’s mint and a little bit of chocolate mixed in, much like a chocolate bar where you wish there was more chocolate to mint in the ratio, but are still grateful to have something.
I’d ramble on more, but I’ve got 30 min until I head to bed and I’d like a little bit of minecraft time, pretty please and thank you. :) I’m building an underwater house!
I got a free sample of this with my birchbox one month and finally tried it. The chamomile is relaxing and the citrus provides a little zing. I like it! I wasn’t in the mood for straight chamomile.
This smells nice, too! The bag has lots of whole chamomile flowers too. Cold it gets a little too citrusy for me. This is much better warm. Overall, I like this a lot! It’s getting me all chilled out before Monday morning comes. Oh gosh, feeling less chill… so much to do!
I really like the softened orange taste of this blend, which makes use of vanilla and flowers to give a “latte” style taste to the black tea and orange. Plus it being orange instead of the stronger bergamot yields a not-too-strong flavor; just right. The vanilla softens the citrus taste further, giving it a distinct taste from that of other softer citrus teas like Lady Grey.
I really love Vanilla Bean, apparently more than a lot of other folks. I think the vanilla blends perfectly with pretty good black tea, and am hard-pressed to think of a finer version for black tea. It tastes very natural, unlike some other teas that often rely on vanilla flavoring rather than vanilla beans.
This is the last of my Mighty Leaf bagged tea samples. I know it says to steep for 5 minutes, but it was a very dark reddish brown after only 3 minutes, so I decided to take the bag out early. The mint is very strong here in the aroma of the dry leaf and the brewed tea. It smells like spearmint to me. I hope I can taste the verbena under all that spearmint. The whole reason I wanted to try this was because it has verbena in it!
My favorite Bath and Body Works scent is Coconut Lime Verbena. Of course as soon as I fell in love with it, they discontinued it. :( So I immediately went to Ebay to stock up, and now I have at least a 5-10 year supply of shower gel and body spray. :D Honestly, it mostly smells like coconut and lime to me. I don’t even know what verbena is. So when I spotted this tea, I thought, here’s my chance to find out!
Well, to make a long story short, this tea tastes like funky spearmint. I love how the description says “soft citrus notes of verbena leaves balanced with a beautiful hint of mint.” Hint of mint my butt. This is overpowering mint! There does seem to be some kind of citrus punch in the beginning of the sip, but it’s quickly covered by mintaplooza. It’s really off-putting to my palate. Eck, I just can’t finish this cup. Sorry, verbena mint tea! You are not my cuppa!
This year, the annual awards ceremony for my husband’s work was held at the Four Seasons. After the awards ceremony and dinner, they offered tea and coffee with some fabulous desserts. This individually packaged tea bag was my winnings for the evening (along with a few other tea bags stashed in my purse for later). ;) I can’t help myself! When I see tea, I just go klepto!
The dry leaf aroma is dripping juicy guava and strawberry. Yum! The tea liquor is light amber colored and smells mainly of green tea with a generic fruitiness. I have to say the dry leaf aroma was much fruitier and more appetizing than the brewed tea aroma. But on to the taste!
Hmm, this is kind of unexpected. The beginning of the sip is green tea, but then it morphs in your mouth and there’re tons of fruity flavors by the time the aftertaste hits! I’m getting largely pineapple here, which is funny, because that fruit wasn’t apparent in the scent at all. There’s still a good level of guava, but now the strawberry is somewhat elusive.
There’s also something a little off in the cup, but it only appears at the beginning of the sip and doesn’t linger. I think it might be whatever the flower petals are contributing. The floral element doesn’t seem to mesh well with the fruits. But overall, this is a good fruity green tea, especially considering it’s bagged. I’m glad I had the opportunity to try another Mighty Leaf Tea!
My husband’s work hosts an awards ceremony every year at a hotel in D.C. We get to enjoy free food and drink and the chance to win $5000! My husband has worked there two years, been nominated both years, but hasn’t won yet. Oh well. At least we got some free tea out of it!
This is dark, nutty, and bordering on woody. The muscatel is there along with a good amount of astringency. I think I’d enjoy this more with milk and sugar. After finagling in the kitchen, I return with an improved cup of tea! The nuttiness seems even more apparent with additions.
I’m surprised that I couldn’t find this here on Steepster. Mighty Leaf seems pretty popular and well known. Anyway, this is an enjoyable cuppa. It’s not overly complex, but it seems reliable for a bagged tea.
First time trying English Breakfast and… Monica made fun of me. I described it as tasting of old. Not like this tea is old, but it reminds me of old things. Imagine walking up into the attic and discovering all these old stuff from childhood. THAT is English Breakfast tea for me.
Okay this tea. I got it from my mother because she knew that I liked tea, but THIS ONE. It had an odd red colour and I didn’t know what to expect from it.
I actually liked it a bit! It smelled like medicine at first (not the best smell) but after steeping for a while, it gained a fruitier flavour and it was pretty good.
I’ve actually never had Earl Grey before. I got this as a sample sachet in my Harney order so why not give it a go? This was pretty good. Can’t say it’s the best earl grey I’ve ever had since it was the only Earl Grey I’ve ever had.
Very tasty green tea. The Jasmine balances it wonderfully.
A sweet white tea and like most, a lot of fruity flavors. Not the best white tea I’ve had, but not bad.
