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.

Preparation
190 °F / 87 °C 5 min, 30 sec 1 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

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!

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

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.

I just found this bag in my tea cabinet, and made a small pot last week. It’s been a while since I’ve had a pot of tea, I’ve been having an afternoon coffee almost exclusively for the past couple of years. I had forgotten how wonderful this tea is with some raw sugar and a bit of cream or 1/2&1/2. I went to the Mighty Leaf website to order more, and was sad to find it’s no longer available. I’m on the hunt for a replacement chocolate tea.

Making myself a cup of this on my break from Spinzilla spinning. As always, drinking it with milk, since I think that enhances and supports the vanilla flavor, which is in line with what I’m looking for right now: a nice, comforting, reliable cup to relax with, since I still have a long way to go today before the to-do list feels like I’ve done it justice.
