Recent Tasting Notes

This was the other Mighty Leaf tea that we had in a Vegas restaurant; this time at one called Mon Ami Gabi – which is a French Bistro on the strip on Paris Street. As a whole, this restaurant was incredible and the food/service/ambiance were phenomenal. Vegas restaurants need to step up their tea game, though…

As a tea, it tasted fine – a medium level of ginger with just a little bit of heat to it and then a light presence of orange, and a sharp, acidic lemon tang. It was early in the morning, so this felt like an appropriate morning time flavour. However, the other drink that we ordered (the fresh squeezed strawberry and white grape juice) tasted significantly better. I ordered a VERY sweet breakfast though (caramelized apple waffles) so having something with more acidity and a little spice worked better to counterbalance the sweetness of the waffle dish and juices.

So, I had this tea at a restaurant in our hotel called “Rice & Company”.

I swear every restaurant that we went to in Vegas (except for High Tea) carried Mighty Leaf tea; it started to feel a little weird after a while. Normally I probably wouldn’t order this; bagged green tea!? No thanks. However, my tea options were limited in Vegas so I took what I could get…

It tasted fine; definitely nutty and grassy and not overly flavourful. However it did compliment our cuisine really well – I mean, Chinese food does tend to go pretty well with Chinese green tea, right? For what it was, I was happy enough drinking it.

I’ll sum this up in two sentences.

Tastes almost nothing like hojicha.
Not for serious tea drinkers

So I have to admit I was a little wary about trying this tea because I had never had matcha before but I actually enjoyed it. I made it with hot water and the first time I didn’t put enough of the match powder in but once I got the hang of the water to powder ratio I found myself enjoying the taste. The whisking also took me a minute to figure out but it’s very satisfying once you get it to froth correctly. The tea is a very refreshing, healthy tasting drink. To me it tastes like springtime in a cup, which is the only way I can think to describe it.

drank Vanilla Bean by Mighty Leaf Tea
44 tasting notes

This is my first time trying a vanilla flavored tea, and it may very well be the last. Way, way too strong and completely overpowers the tea. The smell itself was hard to deal with. I grudgingly finished it as I don’t like to waste tea, but I will not be having it again. And, while the bag satchels are totally adorable (the hand-stitching is super cute), the string absorbs the tea and drives it to drip out of the cup. I don’t know if this was due to user error (am I supposed to take the bag out once it’s steeped? I usually don’t…) but it was annoying to have to keep a tissue nearby to soak up the drippage.

Edit: I’m upping my rating, slightly. As the tea began to cool and I drank larger gulps, it did seem to become more palatable. Still, I don’t think I’ll be getting it again.

Aromas: lemon, orange, grapefruit, floral, mint

Great tea bag quality, I appreciate that there is no staple on the silk pyramid pouch.
This tea has really strong floral notes with hints of citrus, a very subtle chamomile. The lemon zest that lingers is quite pleasant and adds to this tea’s sophistication.

It’s good. Nothing special, but it has this going for it; it takes milk well and doesn’t get overpowered, it smells like bergamot and tastes like it, it’s medium/low strength bergamot flavor and doesn’t taste artificial.

Thank you Evol Ving Ness for the share. However’s I don’t think I am this tea’s target audience given my dislike of chamomile. It’s not the worst chamomile tea I have tried and the lemongrass comes out quite strongly but that isn’t a flavor I love and even if it was, it isn’t enough to hide the chamomile. It is always nice to try new things though because you never know what might surprise you.

Are you feeling better, VariaTEA? I find this one rather soothing on my throat when I am sick, but it sounds like your tastebuds have made a recovery, so yay!

VariaTEA

Still on the mend but much improved. Thank you for asking :)

Evol Ving Ness

This most recent thing that I had lasted about 3 weeks or so. Hope yours is the shorter easier variety. Good to hear that you are slowly moving through this.

I’m not fond of this tea…. Actually i really don’t like the taste :(
this tea is not for me… if you want to try it, go ahead.
it has a weird mix of orange, floral, medicinal, and tartness that is not enjoyable to me..

Few teas added to my cupboard yesterday courtesy of the lovely evolvingness. So of course, since i’m desperate for new things, they’re on the menu today! this one wasn’t half bad. I never expect much from this company for some reason but this was a decent cup to start the morning. Nothing that i need to keep around but it was a decent “every day” sort of tea.

Pretty decent generic breakfast tea. Nothing to write home about but since it came to me free at work, I wouldn’t turn it down. Robust with a malty edge to it.

Rooibos with a hint of marigold—you can actually taste the marigold! Makes it a touch more interesting.

drank Masala Chai by Mighty Leaf Tea
236 tasting notes

Chai Tea is my go to at coffee shops and breakfast joints, especially if they have a good one. Making chai at home is an adventure I am still pretty new at. It’s complicated, finicky, and messy. The outcome is god though, and with more practice, I think I could make a pretty good cup of chai, and even an acceptable chai latte.

This specific chai is not bad. A little on the spicy side, as it probably should be. The brew itself I need more practice with, but with time I think this could turn out to be a great mix.

Flavors: Cardamon, Cinnamon, Cloves, Ginger, Peppercorn

Jet black needles with bits of gold. Pretty. I am guessing that it is a DianHong Gong Fu cha, or Yunnan Gold. The tea steeps up red brown. Punchy—good hit of malt, dark cocoa, and lingering muscatel sweetness. A bit bewildering for my tastebuds—like a mega Darjeeling crossed with an intense Yunnan black. I am currently on steep four and it appears to still be going strong.

Flavors: Dark Bittersweet, Dark Chocolate, Honey, Muscatel, Sweet Potatoes

drank Chrysanthemum by Mighty Leaf Tea

Chrysanthemum tea was light in flavor and also not too sweet. It smelled floral, but the scent was not overpowering. If you look at the tea after you steep it you can see the petals bloom.
