This is the first tea that I found this morning in my big box of teabags that I’m trying to get through. I was hoping for smooth and malty, but it was a bit more robust than that. Still a good tea, but nothing amazing here. I would gladly accept a cup of this if offered, but I won’t seek out any to purchase on my own. I’m getting ready to go shopping with my mom and this morning and plan to put a super strong and delicious tea in my Timolino to enjoy while we’re out and about. Hopefully that will help me get through all of these errands that we have to run! I have so many things on my mind with school, house stuff, the pets, etc. that I feel pulled in 50 directions and don’t know where to start. I’ll just start with tea, tea solves everything!
-Large square teabag with a tag.
-Teabag smells musty and slightly malty. Tea liquor aroma is sweet and malty.
-Tea liquor is a thick dark brown color.
-Robust flavor and finish. Light malty aftertaste.
-Best with milk and sweetener.
-Good tea. An average breakfast tea. More of a robust than malty flavor.
Last cup of this stuff. I cut open some bags and made a real pot in hopes of producing a better cup of tea; it didn’t work. I can finally taste the black tea (which tastes muddled and dull), but the vanilla is even wimpier than before.
Bye, Vanilla Bean, and good riddance.
When I first tried this tea I thought I might not be steeping it hot enough or long enough, so today I tried hotter and longer than I had before. It produced a marginally better cup of tea, but that isn’t saying much.
Too mild, barely vanilla, and even the black tea taste is disappointing. It’s just unremarkable in every way. At least my box of this one is nearly gone.
Tea #33 from Another Traveling Tea Box
I’m really glad someone double bagged this tea, it has such a strong scent to it that I wasn’t really expecting that when I opened the package. The first thing I notice upon sipping the brewed tea, surprisingly, is the green tea base. As strong as the tropical fruit scent was, I was expecting to taste it first as well. The tropical flavors really stand out with the pineapple and guava being most noticeable, but I had a hard time picking out the strawberry that was listed in the ingredients. Then the bitterness comes, I wasn’t expecting any bitterness considering that I brewed this at 175°F. I probably would have enjoyed this had it not been so bitter, hopefully an extended stay in the fridge tones that down a little.
Hmm. I was expecting more from this. More of a chocolate mint KAPAOW! What I’m getting is a pleasant but mild “eh”.
Not as full of chocolate or mint flavor that I crave, despite me clearly seeing chocolate chips in the mix! What gives, tea?
I have the tiniest tin of this, and so I wont be saddled with it for too long. I’ve never been overwhelmed with anything by Mighty Leaf tea. Maybe its just not my brand.
I found the tiniest tin of this at my local Marshalls, and justified myself into buying it.
Hmm. Pear. I never know quite what I feel about normal pears, but this isnt half bad. Its not quite as caramelly as I was hoping, but you get a nice earthy note, and the pear tastes properly like a pear, not like something from a bottle.
We finally made it – this is the last face/off of the first elimination round of the Battle of the Earl Greys. The second round will start on Wednesday!
Jake made some lovely scones this morning, and we got to enjoy them as we sat down and sipped some of this tea. It has some surprising floral notes, but noticeably less briskness than its competitor. A very enjoyable way to start the day!
You can read the recap here:
Very strong on the green and jasmine flavour. I tend to oversteep, which makes it bitter.
How lovely it is. It has a minty taste, but it is very slight. It is not one of those busy and exciting teas, as the name would make me think it is, it is rather soothing (despite all the caffeine) and natural. More of a Boreal forest vibe, because it feels like I should be drinking this in the winter, not summer! It is bland and reminds me of a minty orange pekoe.
Number 25 from Another Travelling tea box.
The dry tea has a very strong fruit aroma; I see why it was double-bagged. The nose is totally dominated by the fruit. I’ll assume that it smells like passion fruit – definitely a tropical flavor. The taste is more balanced, with a straw flavor along-side the fruit. The finish is all tea, and slightly bitter.
After drinking about a third of a cup, I added sweetener. This improved the taste quite a bit, in my opinion, bringing the fruit forward and eliminating the bitterness at the end. My rating is based on the sweetened tea.
Pretty decent re-steep.
Having an afternoon tea here, this came for free at the office, I actually don’t mind this one. I brewed it and then poured it over ice and it’s pretty good that way. The sunny weather here is perfect for iced green tea, I somehow crave green tea more when the weather is warmer and go “back to black” when the fog returns. I guess it makes sense! This is lightly tropical and reminds me a bit of mango/papaya but still seems a bit more artificial than I would like.
This tea is pretty good, but I was expecting a little less of the grassy green tea taste and a little more fruit. I find the fruit flavors to be subtle though it is definitely present. I have been drinking it as is without any sweetener. It is far from being a favorite of mine, but I have been enjoying it well enough.
I’ve been trying to drink a bunch of my teas to make room for some that I have coming in the mail, so tonight I tried out Organic Green Dragon. It had a lot of earthy, nutty tones, absolutely nothing overpowering or begging for attention, though. This definitely qualifies as a quiet, wallflower type of tea. A suitable choice if you don’t want to be too distracted or overwhelmed by flavors. While I would rather have this than no tea at all, I have certainly drunk many other cups superior to this.
From the silk bags and loose tea leaves, I expected a lot more. There was little vanilla flavor, and the tea tasted mostly like bitter water. I added agave, and that helped some. Next time I’ll try with milk or cream.
Many thanks to adagio breeze for the bag. I didn’t feel like making an entire pitcher, so I broke open the bag and brewed it looseleaf.
This actually isn’t bad hot. Crisp, grassy, with a hint of orange. Nothing astounding, but not at all awful. Good for an afternoon pick-me-up or as an accompaniment to a light Mediterranean lunch.
Cold, this is quite lovely! Bright and tangy. Quite refreshing. I suspect this would be especially good with a touch of sugar. Definitely better for a hot summer afternoon than the early days of fall, but I suspect we’ll get two or three more hot days in the next few weeks before fall fully settles in.
It was better then I expected. The strong taste of green tea was softened by the taste of herbs. I overbrewed it a little bit and I thought that it will taste like veeery strong green tea. No, fortunately and surprisingly it was very pleasant. I liked it overall.
I tried this tea because somebody mentioned that teas by Mighty teas suppose to be good. Mmmmmm…. Don’t know. It felt like there something missing there. Some richness. I will try to steep it longer next time.
Before I bought a box of this, I looked up reviews on mightyleaf.com and it had glowing reviews so I bought a box.
I didn’t like it, it was bitter and had a bad aftertaste. You could probably put a regular Celestial seasonings green tea and tell me it’s mighty leaf and I probably wouldn’t know..
I drink this every night!! I have trouble sleeping sometime and I’ve tried to drink the stash chamomille tea and the yogi bedtime caramel tea (something like that…) but I didn’t really like either of them. It was a pain for me to finish those 2. When I drink the mighty leaf by itself, I still can’t fall asleep sometimes so I double up on the stash chamomille and the mighty leaf in one cup and I can always fall asleep!
I kind of wish there was a little bit more citrus, I’m thinking about putting a slice of fresh lemon or orange in it when I have them.
BREAKING NEWS! I have slowly but surely been converting my mom into a tea drinker. About a month ago when I first started getting really into tea and discovered Steepster, I would ask my mom if she wanted a sip of whatever I was exploring. She would politely decline and stick with her usual coffee. Eventually curiosity got the best of her and she started taking a few sips at a time. Fast forward to tonight when I got home she casually asked if I was planning on having some tea. I said I probably wouldn’t and she basically demanded that I brew her up her own cup, haha! I’m still exploring teas and now I have someone to try with me (until I move back to Boston at least). Sorry for the rambling, I just wanted to revel in my proud moment there.
Now that storytime is over, I have found myself reaching for this tea more frequently these days almost as a palate cleanser. It’s reliable, clean, light, less caffeinated, and delicious. It can get slightly bitter if I don’t keep my eye on it, but still drinkable. As I’m exploring teas, I have come across some that I don’t like as much, so it’s always nice to have a cup of White Orchard to renew my faith and keep me going.
PS Whole Foods was having a 50% off sale on Mighty Leaf bagged teas, so I’ve basically stockpiled this tea. Yay!
Refreshing and Relaxing. A perfect way to wind down at the end of the day!
It is a beautiful day outside, full of sunshine and a soft breeze. I am going to try to get a lot of homework done so that I can take the dogs for a nice long walk this evening. This is the first time this year that I’ve felt like fall is just around the corner. I walked outside this morning to leaves blowing around and that chill in the air that always says fall is on it’s way.
I got this tea in a variety box of Mighty Leaf blends, but I believe this is the first time that I’ve tried it. I like that Mighty Leaf uses such nice tea leaves – the little pouch always expands a lot in the water and the leaves are a nice size and look just like a loose-leaf tea. But conveniently in a pouch, it’s perfect. I wasn’t expecting anything special with this one, but it is delicious. It has an almost Earl Grey like quality to it, but more of a sweet orange and cream flavor. The jasmine flowers give it a little floralness which is nice. I will definitely pick up another box of this one the next time I see it in the store!
