So once again I find the Wissotzky Signature Collection Imperial Earl Grey to be better than the competition. In today’s steep-off that was Mighty Leaf Organic Earl Grey.

The Wissotzky is much smoother, can be imbibed without cream (though I doused it anyway, to drink alongside the MIghty Leaf), and overall I was reaching for this glass and emptied it long before the Mighty Leaf. What further proof need there be?

A factor which some would find irrelevant, but which has aesthetic significance for me is that the Mighty Leaf sachets, which are simple rectangular sacks, look droopy and depressed, while the Wissotzky tetrahedrons (often referred to as “pyramids”, but they are really tetrahedrons, it seems to me…) are much more attractive and convey a polished image. Does the shape of the sachet affect the final brew? It might, I suppose, if the surface area of a tetrahedron offers better infusion of the tea. Not sure whether that is true, but I do very much prefer the appearance of the tetrahedrons!

Marzipan

The pyramids seem to have leaves that are more whole, in my experience, and they expand a lot. Regular tea bags don’t seem to.

Marzipan: the Mighty Leaf sachets are also made of that same material, but they are in the shape of a filter bag. So they are sort of a hybrid: the sachet concept but the filter bag shape. Their innovation is to stitch the bags with what looks like cotton thread. That adds a “special” look, which may or may not be appealing to consumers. Not sure that it has any significance for the brew…
