Such a beautiful balance between a sharp citrus that sticks around just long enough to keep you craving just “one last” sip coupled with the beautifully calming powers of chamomile that gives it a nice relaxing, somewhat earthy tone to it that chamomile always induces and never fails to please with. No complaints on this one, might have to make this my new favorite chamomile mix. Simply divine for relaxing with some Adventure Time and a snuggle from your cat after a long day.
After reading some of the underwhelming reviews of this tea I thought I’d start by doubling the amount of dry leaf in my cup. I figured it would amp up the flavor and maybe it did, but it doesn’t make it delicious or really even enjoyable. I can taste a bit of mint on the sip and a tiny bit of chocolate on the aftertaste, but it really isn’t anything interesting at all. Pity.
Tea #1 from the Here’s Hoping TTB
I wasn’t sure where I wanted to start with the TTB, so I just reached in and out came an oolong. I haven’t been in an oolong mood lately, but this one sounded interesting and I haven’t had tea from MIghty Leaf in years.
This smelled a lot sweeter than I was expecting as it was steeping. When I hopped on Steepster, I finally realized that this had coconut in it. That would explain what I was smelling. I’m not sure that I’ve ever had coconut in my oolong before, it gave the tea a bit of a creamy texture, but other than that I’m not sure that it really added anything. Overall, I found the flavor very watery. When I cleaned out my steeper I was surprised by how hard the tea leaves still were, which likely explains the lack of flavor.
I did attempt a resteep, but this doesn’t seem to resteep well.
Had this earlier while out with the kids, because it was the only tea on their roster that appealed to me. I doubt I got the full effect, as it came to me already immersed in boiling water; I took out the teabag immediately. I wish I’d let it steep a bit longer because the flavor was weak, however the water was just too hot, and I was too impatient. I wanted tea!
The tropical fruits (mostly mango from what I could tell) mingle nicely with the green. It’s okay, however I wouldn’t seek it out in the future.
The directions said steep for 5 minutes, but having read the other reviews, some were saying it needs longer. So, my cuppa brewed for about 8 minutes. It definitely has a very herbal taste to it. I’m definitely going to have to try this one again, but just brew for 5 minutes next time.
I got a sample bag of this from my Conscious box subscription. I was super excited because my sister loves this tea and I’ve never tried it before. I was feeling sick and my stomach hurt this morning so I decided to remedy it with some mint tea. Thank God I have this because I don’t have any mint tea! I love the taste of it. It isn’t super minty like the Tazo ones (aka it doesn’t taste like toothpaste). My stomach is feeling instantly better. (: I also love the tea bag packaging. It looks sewn and I think it’s super cute! (:
I have had many Mighty Leaf teas. I like them-quality tea bag, you can usually count on. I was at a local coffee shop, and they used this tea bag to make my London Fog. I thoroughly enjoyed it. Haven’t had a London Fog before, this will not be my last with this tea bag or with other Earl Greys. This concoction has made me start to like Earl Greys. (Not a big fan before)
First of all, I need to address a pet peeve. Don’t give a tea a poor rating because “it’s bitter,” and then admit to over-steeping it. Good lord. Smh…
ANYWAY! This is my favorite tea from Mighty Leaf. I love it hot and iced. It’s a little bit fruity, a little bit floral with a sweet green tea base. Just an overall deliciously mellow, fruity green tea. I love it! (I’m drinking the loose tea version; Not tea bags.)
My first rooibos, and I love it! I have the loose tea version in a little tin I found at TJ Maxx for $1.99. Instructions are to pour 12 ounces of boiling water over 1 Tbsp of loose “tea” and steep for 5 minutes. I prefer my tea strong, so I added an extra teaspoon. The liqueur is a beautiful dark amber. The peppermint flavor is definitely there. The chocolate flavor is mild but present. Althought mild, I appreciate that it tastes like real chocolate, as opposed to most dessert teas which rely on artificial flavoring to get the “chocolate” point across. This is in my top 3 from Mighty Leaf!
