Today was a long day in the professional world: fancy clothes, big meeting, followed by dinner with clients, customers and my bosses. When dessert rolled around, I noticed a tea list, and how could I resist? I had not heard of this specific Mighty Leaf, though I knew the brand well, so I decided it would aid in digestion and make a fantastic tasting note.
The waiter kindly dropped off my (and two others’) tea bags in tea cups with saucers and spoons, but alas, no water. Impatient, I ripped open the bag, I am sure I looked nuts because I smelled the tea bag, mind you this is normal if it was wine, but whatever. The leaves are delicately packed in the silk satchel, they are not crushed, and there are small yellowish pieces amongst the leaves. The smell is floral-fruity, as in flowers that bear fruit, and coconut. Strange, intriguing, smells delicious. Where is the waiter with my water? There he is…Infused hot, four minutes, no additives. The flavor is subdued, you are still smelling the coconut, but you are only tasting oolong with a hint of fruity-floral at the end.
The tea flavor is delicate; the flower bearing fruit smell can be described as “powdery”, like it is an essence of the fruit and flowers without actually being in there. I did not taste coconut, but I was not upset. This overall was very good.
