This is going to be long. I can’t help but be grateful for finding a place such as Steepster for allowing me to record my falling in love with this tea. I’ve only had ONE CUP and I know I’m in love for life. Hubby had convention and they served up Mighty Leaf so brought me back Chamomile Citrus tea bag packet and some other Mighty Leaf flavors. This was my first choice to try. I had no idea what was going to happen as I opened the package. I was expecting regular tea bags like Bigelow and Celestial Seasonings, but what came out was a beautiful, silky tea bag filled with beautiful herbs that were whole and lovely. It was love at first sight. I couldn’t believe it. Not only did it look pretty, but it smelled heavenly! When I finally got around to making this tea (after showing my newly discovered tea bag to the hubby and son) I was swept off my feet. Everything about this tea is wonderful, from the smell, to the lovely color of the tea, and of course, the smooth taste. If you must know how serious this is, I refused to throw the tea bag away until the next morning so I could sniff it- I know, I’m crazy. It’s ok to think it… ****edited to add the disclaimer that despite my professed love for this tea, I am hesitant to create such an expensive tea drinking habit! The box at Publix is $8 for a box with 15 bags!! Yikes!

I too share your thoughts on keeping the tea affordable. I have spent hundreds of dollars on loose tea only to decide that the lowly tea bag is a more consistent cup of tea. The smell you describe with this tea is how I feel about the smell of the vanilla chai from Bigelow. I set the bag next to my easy chair and the smell is intoxicating. I will have to look for mighty leaf teas.

I just got a variety pack from them and really having fun with it. You know, first impressions are strong, but now that I have the variety pack from Mighty Leaf I can’t help but compare everything to Bigelow, one of my favorite bag teas. I think ML is a nice treat, but Bigelow will always be my everyday tea. Funny you should mention Vanilla Chai- it’s high on my shopping list b/c I’ve heard so many good things about it!

I like this tea! It’s good with sugar and milk and I have it in the afternoon. I don’t get an overwhelming taste/smell of cloves as others have mentioned. I wonder if they are steeping too long? I get just a nice orange spice note that is nice to smell and good to taste when you want a little flavor.
