Another blustery day here. The bone-chilling kind.
I was fortunate enough to have a fiery Korean seafood soup to take a bit of the chill away and later followed up with this tea prepared chai-style at home. Very delicious.
The tea today has a bit of a rose-lychee hint with the slightest bit of cinnamon and star anise. I am nearing the end of this and suspect that I’ll be moving through the remainder rapidly. A nice variety of things going on in this one.
Flavors: Almond, Anise, Apricot, Cinnamon, Fig, Pineapple
Inspired by the suggestion of a strong kick in the pants kind of tea, I reached for this one as Mighty Leaf black blends tend to have a robust black supporting the rest of the event. Well, not so much this one, as it happens.
The dry leaf appears to be mostly fruit and spice and not much tea: much different from the image here. It smells heavenly though.
My first few cups of this were straight up black and unsweetened. Strong cinnamon with a hint of star anise with generic fruit in the background.
I popped around the shops to try the second batch sweetened with honey with milk. More or less the same flavours with more complexity this time as I had gone a bit heavier on the leaf the second time. Nice.
I get the impression that flavours will vary depending on the leaf you have in the tea scoop. The fruit and spice pieces are rather large.
Very much a chai type blend. Perfect for a cold winter day.
I am adding the Mighty Leaf description and ingredient list of the Holiday Blend 2015 that I am drinking. Very much different from the tea described here on Steepster.
Holiday is a festive blend of Chinese black tea with cranberry, orange, papaya, apple, peach and spices. At once sweet and hearty, this tea is the ideal accompaniment to a joyous gathering of family and friends.

This is a decent jasmine tea, and I do drink a lot of it. The jasmine isn’t too overbearing, and it isn’t too “perfumey”. Since I drink this one at work, it’s a little tough to control the temperature, and it sometimes gets a little too bitter. I would NOT buy this tea full price, it’s a little on the pricey side for it not being my favorite. However, homegoods frequently has it in stock for a good price, so I pick it up there.
Friday. Thank goodness, its Friday.
I am quite stressed at work, and today is going to be massively busy. I’m worried that I won’t be done with the larger projects I’ve been given. Argh.
I wish I was feeling more confident in this new job! I’m dying to feel calm and detached when I come into the office, but right now I’m tense and stressed beyond belief.
Which means I’m not sleeping well. Which means that I’m not sleeping well. Which means tea.
This is my last bit of this, so its a sipdown.
I really like this blend. Its gorgeous in the cooler weather. Now that we’re pushing against spring, its time to drink it down.
Ugh, daylight savings time.
Anyone expecting elegant prose, or poetic desciptions, well, be gone, my friends. This day has been one long session of uggggggh, as I dragged my sorry carcass around, mewing slightly and bumping into objects.
I do not like waking up early, that’s for sure.
So! Bold! Rich! Strong! That’s what I grabbed this morning. Thank you for all your help, Winter Solstice.
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
This is an amazing tea. I would like to have more of the Rooibos base shine through, but aside from that, the flavors are very well balanced, and very smooth. The tropical fruit overtones are delightful, making this tea super drinkable.
I’m usually not a huge fan of fruit tea blends, but this may be one of the best I have ever tried. I would definitely buy this again and keep it handy, I’m thinking it would be great during a warmish late Spring rain.
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
