Mighty Leaf is a tea company that was created by married couple Gary Shinner and Jill Portman in San Francisco in 1996. They create tea products that are high quality and innovative. Their handcrafted tea blends are made from globally sourced ingredients. Mighty Leaf created their silken Tea Pouches and filled them with whole tea leaves, herbs and fruit that are too big to be put in a regular tea bags. I recently was given the chance to try the Mighty Leaf Sweet Selections Gift Sampler and the TeaTop Brew Travel Mug and now I want to take a moment to share my experience with you.
The Mighty Leaf Sweet Selections Gift Sampler includes 15 Tea Pouches each of Orange Dulce, Vanilla Bean and Bombay Chai and comes bundled with a pretty ribbon. Mighty Leaf Teas include different blends of black tea, green tea and herbal tea. I love that the Tea Pouches are see through and you can see the tea leaves and different ingredients in each one. Mighty Leaf’s silken Tea Pouches are really cool and not like the tea bags that you buy in the store. You can see the quality of the silken pouch and the ingredients within it. I have to admit that I am usually a boring tea drinker, tending to stick to a few basic tea flavors, but I was really looking forward to trying new, different flavors.
I started with the Orange Dulce. It’s a blend of Ceylon and China black teas with notes of bergamot, orange, vanilla and jasmine blossoms. It smells amazing and I was actually able to smell and distinguish between the different flavor notes, thats how fragrant this tea was. The flavor is rich and full bodied and it’s a darker tea. It’s delicious with a little bit of milk or cream when it’s hot and I also enjoyed it as an iced tea. The next flavor I tried was the Bombay Chai. I will be honest, I tried a few store bought Chai teas in the past and I really didn’t like them at all so I really didn’t think I would like this one but I gave it a try anyway. I’m really glad I did, too. The Bombay Chai is made with Indian black tea and a blend of spices. I could smell cinnamon, cloves and orange when I brewed a cup. It was like being at an Indian spice market and it smelled nothing like the Chai teas that I previously tried. The taste was smooth, rich, slightly spicy and delicious. I added a bit of honey and it was perfection.
The last flavor to try in the Sweet Selections Gift Sampler was Vanilla Bean. I love, love, love anything vanilla so I saved it for last. Its a blend of black teas and Madagascar vanilla. The sweet aroma of vanilla filled the air as I brewed my cup and it was fragrant and lovely. I added a bit of sugar and cream and it was one of the most heavenly tastes I have ever tasted in my entire life. It satisfied my sweet tooth and I even skipped dessert that evening, instead having another cup of Mighty Leaf Vanilla Bean. These teas are all delicious and I will continue to enjoy each of them. I normally have coffee in the morning, but any of these teas would be a great option instead. The flavors and quality go above and beyond any store bought tea I have tried and you can see why as soon as you open the first box.
I have a mug that I use for coffee and tea that I stick in the microwave to reheat when it gets cold. I do this several times with every cup I drink because I’m always doing something and by the time I get back to my cup, the coffee or tea is ice cold. I used the TeaTop Brew Travel Mug to brew my Mighty Leaf teas and it was so great not to have to reheat the tea 6 times before I drank it all. It kept my tea nice and hot for a few hours. What I really love about the TeaTop Brew Travel Mug is that the Tea Pouch doesn’t sit in the tea while you drink it. The brew time is noted on each tea tag, so after that amount of time has passed you pull up on the tea tag and it raises the Tea Pouch into a domed area at the top of the mug. It doesn’t touch the already brewed tea so you will never drink over brewed tea again. I love the shape of the mug which makes it comfortable to hold and it stays cool to the touch. It’s also stainless steel and looks very sleek. I will continue to use the Tea Top Brew Travel Mug every day now that I have it.
Mighty Leaf tea is delicious, full of flavor and high quality. Their delectable blends of green tea, black tea and herbal tea offer something for everyone regardless of flavor preference. I highly recommend Mighty Leaf teas and products. Tea is their passion and that’s evident with every sip. I promise, you will not be disappointed!
