It’s probably been about a week since I had teabag tea, and it has been quite a while since I last bought teabag tea, but I had decided to try some artisan whole leaf pouches as I seem to have more success with them than typical teabags.
The pouches are quite a surprise, with quality details such as a fine mesh and braided string, as well as room to breath while steeping.
This is possibly my first Mighty Leaf tea as well, as I cannot recall teabags ever giving off a nice detailed vanilla scent like that. It is quite a bright and sweet aroma.
But the true test is in flavor, which this tea seems to know how to handle. It is not reckless in overbearing typical black teas with flavor, the vanilla is quite subtle and quite sweet. I can taste some of the black teas and it is good the vanilla bean works in settling down the overall taste. Quite smooth.
I can tell it had plenty of room to breath while steeping for a nicer flavor. I’m glad this isn’t a typical teabag tea.
