I received this as a sample with my order from Mighty Leaf.

This is pretty good. The dry leaf aroma was sweet, chocolate-y with flowery notes (rose?) I can also smell a hint of fruit in there… almost like lychee.

The flavor is pretty tasty, although I must admit that I find myself wanting more of a chocolate flavor after the chocolate aroma. I can taste a faint chocolate note, but mostly what I’m tasting is a combination of rose and lychee. It’s an intriguing flavor though, one that I am enjoying.

Now that I’ve read the description from Mighty Leaf, I see that the fruit I’m tasting is Longan – which is a fruit with which I’m unfamiliar, so I did a little research (very little) and found that longan is similar to lychee in flavor… so I guess that’s why I’m tasting lychee.

I received this as a sample with my last order. The aroma is sweet and kind of soft. The flavor of this tea reminds me of lychee black tea but with something else. I’m getting hints of chocolate and rose. I really like it! Curse Mighty Leaf and their samples. I’m going to have to get some of this now..

After begging to sample this from Evol, and so much waiting, I am trying it. I love me some longan fruit teas, and when Evol described it, I was hoping for it to be very similar to the Ailoashan from Whispering Pines, which was and is one of the most popular teas on this site, and is blended into the OTHER TWO most popular teas on this site. And yes, I read the other reviews hitting at the lychee, the rose, and the allusive cocoa note that Evol and others pick up on.

It definitely has a malty, dark chocolate body for a tea that is a little bitter, but bittersweet like dark chocolate. This would make a good pair for that kind of desert in the after noon. But the cocoa-chocolate thing was the background of the tea for me, and the longan fruit was the leading heady star. If I were to have tried this blind, I would have guessed this was a rose black tea. The lychee, which is pretty damn similar to a longan fruit, is more of an accent for me than anything else though I taste it. This cup is like someone decided to pour some cocoa in hot rose water. The rose makes me think of candy wax for what-ever reason because it is so sweet.

For the brew that made me babble this way, I more or less tried to Gong Fu it beginning at 20 sec, 30, 40, 45, and the current cup at a minute. The third cup was a tad bit too strong, so I splashed the smallest amount of milk and it was actually pretty nice because it off set the bitterness and helped push the rose taste along. I could probably get another cup for a longer steep, but since I have more left of the sample, I am not too worried. I am getting more rose and dryness towards the end with a continual smooth body.

As much as I enjoyed it, I am not sure that I would drink this often. A part of me liked it more with the splash of milk. Yes, I liked a tea more with milk. This was sweet enough for me personally to not add sugar because the longan fruit processing is VERY STRONG, but some might add a dip of sugar. Next time, I think I’ll use just a little less leaf, more water, and try it western to see if that smooths it out. I do recommend it, but essentially, this tea is a rosy black type of tea with some UMPH. If that is what you’re looking for, this would be a good stop along the way.

hahahha, so much waiting. :)

Sorry, I always do come through, but sometimes it takes a bit of time for the stars to align.

Daylon R Thomas

No need to apologize. I was talking about how long I waited to finally try the tea.

Daylon R Thomas

I’m so glad that I saved the teas for this winter though, holy crap.

Evol Ving Ness

Yeah, this is very wintery stuff that you are drinking from me now. This weather for me is perfect for drinking the kind of teas that I like.

sample from evol ving ness as i have to get through a few samples as well as get started on the GCTTB. I brewed this one up thinking it was a straight black for some reason. However as soon as the water hit the leaf, i knew that wasn’t the case. Sadly this isn’t a tea i can get behind. I suspect it’s the rose and lychee combination. I get zero chocolate from this one. Nothing wrong with the tea itself, but for me, this doesn’t work. Always happy to try new things though, so thanks evol!

Evol Ving Ness

This is one which benefits from multiple steepings, or that has been my experience.

How interesting it is to see how varied people’s takes are on the same teas!

Sil

yes! that is why sharing is fun :)

Having been disappointed with my tea selection yesterday when craving a strong kick in the pants kind of tea, I made up for it today with this one. Such fab malty goodness with the occasional sweet note. Even more chocolatey notes are coming up now that I gave the leaf more of a shake in the bag. Even a bit of fig, although it doesn’t appear to contain any.

This and a good pair of thermal socks is exactly how one deals with a blustery winter day.

Dang, it must be good then. I haven’t really had a Mighty Tea Leaf tea that I’ve really liked though none of them have been bad.

I am a huge fan of Mighty Leaf’s teas, because they usually have a nice moderate balance of some other contradictory flavors in their tea (ostensibly “contradictory,” but the excellent taste begs to differ). As the name boasts, it is a rousing, celebratory blend, which I thought was perfect for a dystopian-themed ficiton book. Highly recommended. Mighty Leaf brewers know their teas, in my opinion.

Sipdown! First cup of the morning, and one I will miss. I think I’ve said it before, but it’s one of the only Mighty Leaf teas I’d consider keeping on hand. There’s a hint of chocolate, but the main star is the sweet, delicate lychee flavour. The black tea base is smooth and unobtrusive, and allows it to shine beautifully. A delicious morning treat!

Lovely fragrance, with a slight sweet hint of chocolate. When it’s steeping, you can smell the chocolate wafting from your mug. Smooth finish. I can see this being a regular fixture in my morning routine.

I’ve only had a single tea bag, that was a trial, of this. it was quite good. I think I may order a sampler and give it another taste.
