Another Traveling Tea Box Tea!!!!

This is my first Mighty Leaf tea. Cute lil bag! The dry tea smells very nice and fruity. The leaves are cut up but not as small as dust and fannings.

…sip, sip, sip…

Steep One: It’s bitter even though I steeped it for 3 minutes (on the low side of suggested steeping time). The peachy taste is not overly artificial. The bitterness is getting to me to the point where I’m ignoring my tea!

Steep Two (4 min): Less bitter but still bitter. I don’t think I will finish it.

Part of the reason I wanted to try this is because I am still wondering about the whole price/taste/convenience equation. Here is what is rolling around in my brain:

Based on a price I found on amazon and drugstore.com (they were within .25 of each other) I get this tea as being .65 a bag and with 2 steeps that’s, say, .33 a cup. Now let’s say you get a good green or white tea for…oh – we’ll put it on the high side at $18 for 100g (Upton’s Pi Lo Chun is really naturally peachy and $18/100g…Rishi’s organic Snow Buds white tea is 15.75/100g) which makes approx 50 cups… which makes .36 a cup, and you can usually do at least 3 steeps which makes it .12 a cup. So, for .12 a cup I can get a spine tingling happy experience vs .33 a cup for bitter tea that I couldn’t finish.

So, you are getting a better tea for a third of the price :)

It reminds me of this from Terry Pratchett:

The reason that the rich were so rich, Vimes reasoned, was because they managed to spend less money.

Take boots, for example. He earned thirty-eight dollars a month plus allowances. A really good pair of leather boots cost fifty dollars. But an affordable pair of boots, which were sort of OK for a season or two and then leaked like hell when the cardboard gave out, cost about ten dollars. Those were the kind of boots Vimes always bought, and wore until the soles were so thin that he could tell where he was in Ankh-Morpork on a foggy night by the feel of the cobbles.

But the thing was that good boots lasted for years and years. A man who could afford fifty dollars had a pair of boots that’d still be keeping his feet dry in ten years’ time, while a poor man who could only afford cheap boots would have spent a hundred dollars on boots in the same time and would still have wet feet.

This post brought to you by being snowbound in the house two days straight and cupcakes :)

I love the Vimes theory of economics. I use this theory often actually. :)

Holler. The only thing that this doesn’t apply to for me is technology. My computer or phone may be working fine in a year or two years’ time, but I’ll still want a new one. And purses. And shoes. Eep. I’m not a terribly economical person.

Angrboda

Pratchett quote! Awesome! I’m just reading Feet of Clay these days. :) Jillian sent me a bag of this, I shall think of Old Stoneface while drinking it. :) I just hope I like it better than you did. I really want to like it for some reason.

Angrboda

Eh, I stand corrected. She sent me Orchid Oolong. But it was something with O, anyway. :)

JacquelineM

Angrboda – I heard that one was really good – I think Bethany said it was one of her faves!!

Angrboda

Cool! I’ve only got the one bag. I’ll save it for a special occasion then. :D

Purchased from the cafe down the street because someone is in my kitchen having a meeting. Go away so I can make some tea!!!

Smells very fruity-sweet and I am worried it will be nauseating, thank goodness no.

It’s a very light and smooth tea with just a very subtle smattering of fruit flavor. A really good choice for my afternoon. Still I was hoping for more fruit, I guess. Although I don’t mind this I will not rush right out and buy any.

Preparation
Boiling

A meeting in the kitchen?! Rude. That’s what…well, any other space is for.

TeaBrat

It was a lunch meeting so that makes sense…

KeenTeaThyme

still. I’m offended that it cut into your tea time! ;)

TeaBrat

Me too!

Backlog…I had this tea on my mini-moon last week.

My new husband and I were walking around Newport, RI on a very windy, rainy day. We stopped in a Starbucks and the line was long and unmoving. So back out into the rain we trudged. A couple blocks down was an independently owned coffee shop. We walked in and BAM! I spotted some Mighty Leaf teas!

I decided on this one because I didn’t really feel like a green or black tea. White tea really is one of my favorites. After trying 52teas’ Stone Fruit White Tea this morning, I think I probably prefer that one. But this Mighty Leaf tea wasn’t bad!

I recall that I oversteeped it, and it turned pretty bitter. But the earlier sips before the oversteeping incident were really good! I definitely got lots of melon and peach flavors, balanced nicely with what I think was a Bai Mu Dan base. I’d recommend this tea to any white tea lovers. It’s quite enjoyable. :)

Meh. So much for adding another lovely white tea to my favorite’s list. It isn’t terrible, just not my cup of tea;)
It’s sweet 1st taste but at the tail end of it, it’s dry and bitter. I’m going to wait til it cools down, if it tastes a little bit better, I’ll keep it for the summer, might make an ok iced tea. If not…giving it away or throwing it out.

I broke my promise to myself about not buying more tea til March/April. Truthfully I didn’t even try to stop myself. But I’m not going to waste time and beating myself up for it, just try to restrain myself from getting more. The rule moment of truth will be when I go get some replacement rock sugar at Teavana’s sometime this week. I was there today, (Had to go to Whole Foods for grocery shopping, and with Somerset Mall just a mile from WF, I stopped there 1st to have a up close look at the Breville 1-touch. I’ve been thinking the last few days of saving for one for when I get a new job and would like to wake up to a morning cup of tea.

I went out to a farewell dinner for a friend of mine, so sad! On the upside, the food was freaking delicious. It was an Indian/Pakistani restaurant with a buffet. So basically, I just ate until I felt uncomfortable (I do not recommend this, haha). When I finally got home, I just needed something a little calm to balance out my crazy gorging of spicy Indian food. I didn’t want to deal with loose leaf, so I opted for the convenience of my favorite sachet tea.

Surprisingly, I haven’t had this in quite a few months, so I had the pleasure of an almost fresh perspective on this tea. I have found in many flavored teas that the flavors dominate and the base teas just fade away in the background. This tea was my gateway tea that really got me hooked on teas and start buying a bunch for home. Today, I can see why because I can definitely taste the grassiness and smooth quality from the green and white teas., but I’m also getting more of a floral note than usual. Of course, as usual, there is that punch of melon-y flavor that really got me hooked to this tea.

There were probably a few run-on sentences in there somewhere, but bear with me because I’ve been writing a group paper (those are the worst!) and stressing out over it. Thank goodness I now have this tea to keep me company!

LOL, I ate to discomfort tonight as well. Don’t try this at home, kids.

I came home to visit my folks for spring break and went to make some tea. Unfortunately most of them are stale and ick and I just had to get rid of them. I hate throwing away tea, even if it is no longer any good. Fortunately this one is still good, but I only have three bags left. This is a nice light white tea with mellow melon and peach flavoring. No one note over powers any of the others, everything is nicely balanced. I left it steep a little longer than I usually do and it became slightly astringent this time, but overall this is a decent flavored white tea.

my first mighty leaf tea! the packages are nice because there see-through :) i dont know y i like see-through things so much but that makes it more exciting for me. the little bags are cute too because you can see that they are sewn together. i have to admit i bought might leaf because Rabbysmom made them all look so good so i had to try it. i mean its loose leaf but bagged which means i can be lazy lol

this has a soft delicate flavor that i can pick out as the white tea (which i have noticed i have become VERY fond of) its a soft and relaxing tea mmmmm it has a fruitiness to it that i expected to be more melon-y but its more pear/apple-y the color is a very pretty yellow. there is nothing strong about this tea :)

im glad i picked this out because we are having a shrimp teriyaki stir fry and this will balance out with the bold flavors.

I’ve been devouring all my teabags first as well. It’s just so much easier, haha. No need to measure out anything, just drop a teabag in and you’re set to go.

Another reminder that I should browse Steepster before buying. Avoid impulse buys.

It’s not bitter, at least, from what I’ve found. Found it pleasant enough—actually this would make a nice iced tea, if the flavours weren’t so subtle that they’d probably be lost if it were cold-brewed. Perhaps brewing it extra, /extra/ strong…

It’s okay, though. My OTHER purchase, however—Stash’s iced tea powders—eeeh.

Tried this before at my school’s cafe, which just started carrying Mighty Leaf. I wasn’t in the mood for anything caffeinated, so I went for this one. Anyway, this time around I couldn’t determine the water temperature (no thermometer), but it was probably around 180 F (I’m getting better at estimating). Steeped around 4 min. Possibly too long. This one is a little sharp for my tastes, and a bit jumbled. I’m not the biggest fan of fruity teas anyway, but even so, this isn’t one of my favorites. I can’t really taste the tea here. It’s fighting to stay ahead of the fruit and I think the fruit won. Ehh. Smells nice though.

The reviews of this tea are rather extreme – ppl seem to either hate it or love it! I belong to the latter group… just how can anyone hate this aromatic infusion? I absolutely love the subtle peach flavour, which tastes/smells almost natural! I think I am falling in love with Mighty Leaf… ;)
