Absolutely divine. Tasted just like those chocolate orange slices that you can get around Christmas time. Perfect with milk. It was good as a dessert tea. The chocolate was very strong and the orange was kind of like an afternote. It was very very nice.

I really liked this one! The flavoring is the most genuine fruit flavoring I’ve ever tasted. I’m not sure which fruits are Brazilian, but this tasted like stone fruits and watermelon to me. Very sweet, but not cloyingly so. Very refreshing; must try it as an iced tea.

Flavors: Fruity, Melon, Stonefruits, Sweet

Thank you Evol Ving Ness for the sample!

This was fruity but I wasn’t able to pick out the specific fruit until I read the description here. It tasted fairly natural though and not too sweet. Very enjoyable. I will ice or cold brew it next time

I drink this a lot, so I’m actually surprised I have not rated it. I read through a lot of reviews and thought I must have the wrong name, however when I checked the label I was indeed correct. Maybe it is my batch, but I do not taste flowers, citrus fruit, or bitter/tart flavours. My steeped liquid has always tasted mostly of basic rooibos-y rooibos (woody and sweet) with a unique undertone sort of like…bubblegum? It isn’t exactly like candy/sugary and also isn’t quite fruity or vanilla, I can not really describe it. Maybe it is because I am a HUGE rooibos fan, but I find it extremely pleasant. I was surprised to learn there is hibiscus in this tisane because I do not taste tart or floral.

I appreciate that this tea is impossible to over steep. I usually do three steeps and leave the teabag in the whole time. This also makes an amazing iced tea with a squeeze of lemon and some sugar. It also makes an awesome latte, although I usually drink mine hot and plain. I find it very versatile.

I just don’t think rooibos holds flavorings as well as camellia sinensis leaves. That said, I did actually enjoy this one, despite the flavorings not being super strong. The chocolate was definitely the most elusive; it kind of cameo’d as a sweet note in the aftertaste. The mint was weak, too, but it was definitely there. I wanted more “truffle.”

It was just something nice to sip on while the wind howled outside.

I kind of agree with everyone else’s assessment of it— inoffensive, but not cupboard staple status. I prefer H & S’s Chocolate Mint offering, even though that one has a black tea base (and therefore caffeine).

I absolutely adore this one. It’s VERY bready, which makes it perfect as a breakfast tea. It has the smoothness of Chinese black tea with the robust flavor of Indian black tea. Steeps a gorgeous ruddy brown color and mixes famously with skim milk. Floral notes in addition to bread/ toast notes.

Sounds delicious.

It’s like the most perfectly blended breakfast tea. Would probably go very well with hot buttered toast or scones!

Oh, I like that image! Haha.

Thank you for the sample Evol Ving Ness!

Rose isn’t generally a flavour that I enjoy in tea, but I like to try them now and again to see if my tastes have changed. Nope, I still don’t like rose. It is a perfectly good tea, just not for me. I’m glad to have tried my tastes again, so thanks for that Evol!

I really didn’t like this mix of flavors. It tasted sour, fruity, and grassy to me.

I adore this tea. I like the powerful cardamon and black pepper zing of it. I like that cinnamon is way in the background in this combination. I like that the black tea base here beats its chest with enthusiasm amidst the spice medley. I reach for this blend when I need a strong-kick-in-the-pants kind of tea, even with milk and honey.

It seems I was bombarded by every conceivable kind of chai tea in autumn, so I got a bit tired of chai until the tea festival came around with their fantastic samples. It reminded me how much I do enjoy chai, the traditional way with milk and sweetener.

This one for me is a whole-hearted yes.

This is my favourite chocolate mint tea of all time (and I’ve tried at least 10). This one actually wins over multiple loose leaf teas. Very flavourful and can be re-steeped multiple times with no loss of flavour. This tea also makes an excellent latte or iced tea.

This tea is very flavourful and sweet. It can be re-steeped at least four times. I highly reccomend this for anyone looking for a straight rooibos.

This tea is quite good. I enjoy it most piping hot and very strong, though I find it quite good mixed with a white chai to add some spice. I think it could make a good iced tea with some berries mixed in :P But it’s nothing special.

Origin: Sri Lanka
Tasting Notes: Powdery with a rose finish

Flavour
Persian Delight has a deceptive, enigmatic side. The ingredients of ginger and clove suggest that the flavour may be spiced, having a floral chai type vibe. However, these distinctive characters are barely present in the taste. Instead the flavour is heavily dominated by a heady, powdery perfume and a minor nutty note, giving the tea a very soft feeling. The Sri Lankan black tea is not lost in the complex mix of sweet flavours, unveiling a strong, dry taste, despite the softness that surrounds it. Drinking this tea is like being enveloped in the presence of your Grandma, hinting at a bold and adventurous past, but only presenting an orderly, graceful nature at present. It’s weirdly comforting and stringent at the same time.

For some reason, while ordering Mighty Leaf Teas at Peets, I never noticed the quality of the teabag, but after “investing” in a box, I couldn’t get over the packaging. #nicebags

That being said, I stripped out the tea to take a closer look at what I’m assuming is Dragon Well and was mildly disappointed at the color and breakage (I remember being at Teavana, Valley Fair (Santa Clara) the other day and a hipster sort was bathing himself whilst buying a tin of their dragon well and I wanted to know what all of the fuss was about. It looked nice and a part of me wanted to strike up a conversation with him to get a whiff but he was entirely too intense for interruption. My Mighty Leaf dragonwell didn’t look like that and I felt somewhat bereft of the experience he was clearly…experiencing?)

Steeped this one in a tiny Daiso bowl a couple of times and while Mighty Leaf calls this one nutty, I got a lot of seaweed (perhaps the result of eating too many of those confounded seaweed snacks all the rage these days). After working with it a little bit, I maybe got some walnut but heck if I know.

I call this one my step up from Netflix. Put on some drugstore makeup, step out and cause a little bit of a ruckus – enough to spice things up but still get home safely.

Strong mint and some ginger on the nose. Mint gives it slick and syrupy mouthfeel. Citrus mint on the front, ginger kick on the back, with a lemongrass backbone.

Partial review from www.tastethetea.co.uk ’ Oolong is known for its ability to go through multiple brews and develop in flavour. No brewing technique was stated on the packet, so it was a little bit of trial and error! The first steeping was brewed for 2 minutes creates a light and delicate brew and emits the first tickle of coconut in the undertones of the flavour. The second cup, left for 4 minutes, developed a medium body with a coppery, metallic taste and a mild coconut undertone. The third steeping was left for about 10 minutes. This retained the medium body, however most traces of coconut disappeared and were replaced by a gentle citric palate. The fourth round produces a very light body, but is still quite pleasant. At this point I stopped steeping the leaves and used fresh ones.

partial review from www.tastethetea.co.uk ;

Gosh where to start on this one! This has unexpectedly become one of my all time favourite blends due to its completely otherworldly characteristics, having the ability to send you travelling through space and time. When brewed for a couple of minutes the flavour is medium bodied, smokey yet smooth, bordering on sweet. The tastes and aromas of Russian Caravan are so suggestive that by merely closing one’s eyes the experience develops into anything your mind can imagine, As the description suggests this is a storied blend, seeping with adventure and inviting you to create your own. One minute you could be a sailor in the dusky Shanghai docks or in Victorian London, as a little urchin next to a crackling coal fire. The possibilities in this cup are endless stories for you to discover, making it a perfect companion brew for a good book.

drank Organic Persia by Mighty Leaf Tea

Sample from evol ving ness Wasn’t too sure about this one given the number of flowers in the tea but as always, i’ll try anything , just in case :) this one is an interesting tea. i love the clove and cardamom and the base tea here is really nice. i think if you were someone who enjoys floral teas, this would be a hit. It’s not super floral, really more of a rose flavour that blends in with the spices. I think it’s a pretty neat tea – just satisfied with me sample :)

Also…WAY COOL ADDITION of pistachios in this tea! can you imagine? pistachios! plus rose? neat!

Evol Ving Ness

What what?—you haven’t mentioned the pistachios. I hunted up the pistachios in the bag to delight you further. Mention the pistachios, Sil. :)

Sil

hahah i don’t what you’re talking about…they’re totally there in my note.

Evol Ving Ness

My happiness is now complete.

I’ve been drinking this in the morning and enjoying it. It’s very vegetal and seems to take a little longer to steep really strong, which is good for me, since I tend to oversteep my tea quite easily!

After about 3 minutes it has a lovely, clear green color and is delicious when brewed very hot. I still prefer a sencha-matcha blend but this has still been making me happy.

drank Lychee by Mighty Leaf Tea
7472 tasting notes

Sample from evol ving ness this one…not so sure about. I had a hard time getting past the scent of this one – it was coming across as really floral. in the sort of “shoved my head in potpourri” sort of way. Drinking it, was a little better than that though..and the flavour was closer to lychee. I actually think this is a pretty decently “lychee” flavoured tea, but i can’t quite get past the smell :) thanks for letting me try this out evol!
