drank Ginger Twist by Mighty Leaf Tea

I like this tea. I’ve been making it lately at night. It only really tastes good when the water is super hot. Not so great lukewarm or iced. This is what I call a “digesting tea”—as in, why did I eat all that Chinese food so quickly? sips Ahh, now I feel much better!

drank World Peace by Teaism

This was the tisane that drew me over to the herbal dark side. I used to poo-poo tisanes until I tried World Peace. The blend of peppermint and licorice makes it great for bedtime, colds, and upset stomachs. It makes an excellent summertime iced tea, too, especially when it’s a billion degrees out. I bet it makes a good toner, too, if you used distilled water. Delish!

My colleagues drink a lot of this everyday. Except their blend doesn’t have cloves, just peppermint and liquorice root. In the shop they buy it in, it’s called The Hairdresser’s Blend, and it’s the absolutely most popular herbal that they’ve got there. I’ve never heard of it from anywhere else before though, but I KNEW it couldn’t be a local phenomenon. :)

drank Orchid Oolong by Mighty Leaf Tea

Love this tea! I bought a big bag of it on sale after receiving a sample of it in a previous Mighty Leaf order. Usually I am not big on coconut but this is a good “unwinding” tea. The taste rolls off the tongue really smooth-like. The scent is great, too. Subtle and soft.

drank Bombay Chai by Mighty Leaf Tea
60 tasting notes

I tried this tea while at Nordstrom Cafe and liked it enough to buy 100 foil packs (on sale!) from Mighty Leaf’s website. This is the best bagged chai tea I’ve had to date. It actually tastes spicy without having to simmer it with additional spices! Drinking it right now with milk and pepper honey. Prominent spice seems to be anise, so if you are adverse to that, sample before you buy. I can’t wait to steep this tea with fresh ginger, cardamom, cinnamon sticks, and peppercorns!

I purchased this tea on a whim while at Wegmans. I kind of regret only buying $0.84 worth! I normally don’t drink pu-erh because it reminds me of drinking dirt, but this one was fairly nice. I taste the orange when it hits my tongue, but it’s the ginger that’s the predominant flavor in this tea. It goes down spicy and warms the throat. It’s good for the morning but I also found it excellent after a large meal or if I was feeling under the weather.

Wegman’s RULES! :P

I can spend hours there! I read that they use loose leaf teas from Ito EN, Rishi, and Republic of Tea.

drank Irish Breakfast by Harney & Sons

At Au Bon Pain right now and decided to get this. Good tea. It’s not something I would go out of my way to purchase on its own at the supermarket, but I wouldn’t mind getting a cup if I’m in ABP again.

drank Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf Tea

Orange Dulce is one of my favorite teas. I love the fragrance—floral with a hint of sweetness. It’s lovely plain or even with a bit of milk and sugar or honey. Great for breakfast, too!

drank Six Summits by Teavana

This tea is a recent purchase for me. The scent is berry-licious without being cloying (like how some tea blends smell like Robitussin). It’s my new work tea. I like that it’s good for multiple infusions.

I come by Corner Bakery on Mondays and they have a variety of Mighty Leaf teas. I very rarely select Organic Breakfast. As far as this type of tea goes, it’s not bad. Very good with milk and sugar. It’s a good pick-me-up in the morning.

I loved this tea. It is very delicate and refreshing. It smells divine, too. I bet it would be great iced. The only thing I do not like is that it’s fucking expensive!
