This isn’t a bad breakfast blend. It’s strong, and takes milk well, it’s beautifully malty, and it has a deep, rich flavour. I wish Mighty Leaf were a bit more explicit about the varieties of tea that are in here. I’d guess Assam and Darjeeling, and maybe Ceylon. Nothing really special, but a good wake-up cup!

I see now at the Mighty Leaf Organic Breakfast profile page that the black teas used are sourced from India. So that would be Assam and something else, probably something similar to Ceylon or Keemun (the usual English Breakfast suspects—but those are not from India). Or perhaps there is a more complex multi-tea blend involved here. Anyway, this tastes good. Definitely a solid English Breakfast tea. I’ll try this steep-off again soon and make sure to compare the Mighty Leaf with the Harney & Sons BEFORE adding cream!

Nilgiri perhaps?


That seems a likely candidate, Angrboda!

I had to grab a bagel while I’m in New York, so we walked to a cute little bagel place around the corner from our hotel. To my surprise, they had Mighty Leaf! This breakfast tea was so much better than the cardboardy Tazo one I had yesterday. I may pick some of this up at the grocery when I get back home.

Tried this instead of my normal Irish Breakfast at work when I ran out. I thought it was much more bitter and less flavorful. I’ll drink the rest of the box and see if my opinion changes.

First time trying English Breakfast and… Monica made fun of me. I described it as tasting of old. Not like this tea is old, but it reminds me of old things. Imagine walking up into the attic and discovering all these old stuff from childhood. THAT is English Breakfast tea for me.

Not as fully-flavored as I expected but it was ok. I would buy again. I just bought a variety pack of ML so I am eager to see how they all pan out.

This is a classic English Breakfast-type tea. Pretty standard flavour profile, but with the robust boldness you only get with whole leaf teas. If you’re trying to introduce someone to high quality black teas, this is one to start with.

Don’t oversteep (4 min tops) or it goes quite bitter. If you want it stronger, use more tea.

This is just a good tea. It’s a solid, strong tea. I like this quite a bit.
