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.

Still trying to get back into the swing of things after Irma. This Orchid Oolong arrived a few days after the hurricane passed, while I was still in the midst of cleanup, and I’ve been waiting to do a tasting note until I feel I can give it my full attention. Well, today still isn’t that day, but I’m drinking it anyway, because sometimes, mood trumps ability.

Steeped a slightly rounded teaspoon of leaves in 9ish ounces of water about 10 seconds off the boil, 4 minutes.

Dry scent: Cool, deep, fairly complex. Sort of sweet and bitter at the same time, with varying notes. At times a chocolatey scent comes through, or a zesty fruity scent, or the oolong base, or a faint cream underlaid by sharpness. Reminds me of a cool, damp, shady tropical forest, with mossy rocks and hanging plants.

Scent of steeped tea: Lighter than the dry scent, slightly creamy, with oolong sweetness and an underlying cool earthiness.

Taste: Would it sound odd to say this tastes like light amber? A light, refreshing oolong flavor overlaid by a touch of caramel and a veil of pale flowers, not much depth. Pleasant and drinkable, but not remarkable.

Five years ago I had a sample pouch of this that I remember being intriguingly delicious, and there are multiple reviews on the Mighty Leaf site that sound like they’re of the same tea I had then: unexpectedly floral, silky, full-bodied, addictive. I wish this tea were that tea.

drank Holiday Blend by Mighty Leaf Tea
3701 tasting notes

Sipdown (327)

I weighed part of my cupboard the other day though I still have about 1/3 of my cupboard to go. Consequently I decided if I drink the teas I haven’t weighed yet, it would be less work and since I haven’t weighed the teas from Evol Ving Ness (or even finished adding them all to my cupboard) I decided to pull some teas from there.

The box is full of chais it seems which worked well today since I wanted to make a latte and chais make for good lattes. However, weirdly enough, I ended up making this tea instead of one of the many chais and I am blaming the power of persuasion since the bag said it was better as a latte.

It’s an alright blend and definitely has some spices which make for a nice latte. I’m getting cinnamon and ginger but also a fair amount of anise, which I don’t love. There is also a fruity element so I can certainly see how this is a holiday blend. It is not my favorite but I can see the appeal as a holiday blend and Evol’s latte recommendation was appreciated. As was the share. Thank you Evol for sending a sample my way!

Leaves of Provence by Mighty Leaf is a powerful blend, having the ability to energise with caffeine and mint, yet calm and relax through the properties of lavender, which is known to be a dominating flavour. Fortunately, its inclusion in Leaves of Provence is just right, providing a soothing scent and subtle flavours. Whenever I drank this, I would daydream of laying in European sun, closing my eyes and letting the aromas dilute my actual surroundings. However, the taste doesn’t quite narrate the south of France for me, the crisp, herby notes navigating my senses a little further afield, to the likes of Italy. Then again, I have yet to visit Provence, so perhaps I just need to be more travelled to make the connection! Who knows!? Have you been to Provence? What would your Provencal mix contain?

Soggy, soggy Fourth in Missouri. Fingers crossed that the monsoon will continue through the evening. As posted elsewhere, my apologies to the fireworks lovers, but I have to work tomorrow.

Actually got a little chilled…spent a bit of time at the farm with my dad and sister; he’s 87 with mild dementia, can’t hear a lick; you have to condense your communication to five word sentences and YELL EVERYTHING. Twice. And then drove home in a toad-strangler, threw a windshield wiper blade, got soaked running into a Walmart to buy a replacement so we could see our way home.

So a little warm gentleness was in order to soothe body and soul. Watching a parent fade away isn’t easy. This did the trick. Nice cherry-to-green ratio if you watch your water temperature. The cherry isn’t fake-syrupy. I think I could use another cup.

So so hard. Amazingly hard. <3

As Rosehips so gracefully put it, I whoopsed yesterday and overdosed on tea and pastry shopping. (There is currently Krispy Kreme and cherry strudel and tiramisu under my roof simultaneously. Don’t judge. )

..but we don’t have a Fresh Market nearby, so when we’re in NW Arkansas, we go a little nuts.

So this box just sorta jumped into my cart. (My husband made it jump.) It’s a nice, gentle little flavored tea; treated with care, you can coax a goodly amount of cherry out of it. A second steep treated with much less care made a decent cuppa chilled, but it had a bite. Nice and springy.

Slightly bitter black base, a bit of earthiness, slight sweetness, a tiny bit of fruit. I steeped 3 min in 80 deg C water and tasted a lot more bitterness and astringency than expected. Maybe hotter water and a shorter steep time? It was pretty meh.

drank Orange Dulce by Mighty Leaf Tea
67 tasting notes

So I have tried this tea twice once black and once with 1 sugar and milk and both times I found the tea odd. There is a strange flavor to the tea almost as if the orange flavor and vanilla notes are competing with each other and makes the tea very off putting. Humpf and I was looking forward to a nice cuppa.

This is a very strong Chamomile tea and if I am being honest my mom always gave me Chamomile tea when I had an upset stomach so maybe its bring up bad memories. I don’t like this tea much at all, very strong Chamomile with rosehip peel. I wish I tasted some of the spearmint or orange flavoring but alas I did not! Thank God this was from a sample pack!

Its Friday morning and I am on my second cup of this while at the office, its raining outside and this tea is doing the trick! I am drinking this black with a little bit of honey and its perfection. It brews to a wonderful dark amber colour and the taste is very robust without any lingering aftertaste, you are just always ready to have another sip! Its almost the weekend and this tea is definitely helping the day move along.

I am so new to tea that I find exploring all these different flavors and blends to be so rewarding and fantastic to the palate. This being said this is my first exploration into a Jasmine tea, I find this tea to be very clean tasting with a hint of Jasmine and ricey flavor notes. Where I was an avid coffee drinker, drinking many cups a day I find delving into teas so much more rewarding.

Ummmm, Yeah I didn’t like this one very! I found the marigold to be over powering actually! I had purchased the bagged version so I didn’t experience any of the leaves floating around like the others or a wet woody taste. To be honest it tasted like someone put marigold flowers in a blender, juiced it and served it to me warm, blah!

I could straight up eat the dry bag, it smells that good! This is a wonderful flavored green tea that has subtle pineapple fruit taste that brews to a delicious amber colour. This was in a variety pack that I got to sample so I am so glad that I have been able to try this so that I can buy a larger version.

Some other tasters have said that they tasted a rotteny mango taste and that couldn’t be any further from my experience. I will be brewing another cup rather soon I think. Yum!

So this came in the Mighty Leaf Variety pack that I purchased the other day because I am on this wild journey exploring the world of tea and I must say that I am pleasantly surprised right down to the quality of the tea bag to the flavor of the bergamot. Now I am new to the world of tea and definitely need to try more Earl Grey tea to compare them all against but I do believe this quite the nice tea.

Flavors: Bergamot

I am drinking this one as we speak its a nice black tea but nothing really jumps out at you. The pouch smelled beautiful but after brewing the tea the smell dissipated too. I bought this in a variety pack so I am interested in the other flavors.

I used to like Earl Greys quite a bit. Then the thrill wore off and I found myself avoiding them. Today, however, as I was deciding what to load my travel mug with, I grabbed this one. Not because I was craving the bergamot Earl Greyness of it, but I just thought that I will need to drink it eventually, so why not start today. Wow! Really, really good. The smoke and feisty intensity really appealed to me. In fact, appealed to me so much that I immediately made myself another cup when I came home. Delicious.

Flavors: Bergamot, Smoke

There are random moments when I like them still, but I avoid them often as well.

Today I had two more cups and enjoyed both. Going with it.

drank Organic Persia by Mighty Leaf Tea
1876 tasting notes

GCTTB ROUND 6

Sweet, fruity (distinct flavours of strawberry jam, dates, fig), floral (rose, gardenia, maybe jasmine?), spices. It reminds me of my grandmother’s date cake with jam on it. The only thing I don’t like about it is that the black tea seems prone to becoming overly tannic (I only steeped mine 3 minutes). In the future I will try 2 minutes, but I really like the intensity of the fruity/floral notes.

Flavors: Dates, Dried Fruit, Fig, Floral, Flowers, Fruity, Gardenias, Jam, Jasmine, Pastries, Rose, Spices, Strawberry, Walnut

drank Ginger Twist by Mighty Leaf Tea
1876 tasting notes

Strong flavours of fruit, earth, and roots. The ginger is very spicy (have you ever tried shredding ginger in hot water when you have a stomach ache? It tastes just like that: fresh unprocessed ginger), minerals, and a sweetness/earthiness that might be from licorice root or the ginger. I think this might also have some sort of fruit in it, but I can’t place which ones. Possible citrus/lemon, or maybe apple? Regardless, it is an excellent blend. Too many ginger teas are not very gingery or contain a lot of licorice root that tastes like iron, metal, dirt, and artificial sweetener. Stupid licorice, ruining perfectly good herbal teas. Don’t get me wrong, I actually love black licorice, but I don’t like it when the licorice is overpowering and tastes like sickly sweet metal.

Yet another fantastic tea blended by Mighty Leaf. I probably would not keep this around all the time because it isn’t a flavour I need regular access to, but nevertheless, I really enjoyed trying it and would order it at a cafe again.

Flavors: Citrus, Earth, Ginger, Lemon, Lemongrass, Spicy, Taro Root
