Mighty Leaf Tea to the Rescue

I wouldn’t call myself a tea snob, but sometimes you need a morning or afternoon pick-me-up that isn’t a calorie packed latte that’s going to leave you bouncing off the walls late at night. A cup of high quality tea will most definitely do the trick, especially if you’ve come down with a cold like I have this past week. I usually reach for a designer tea blend of an estate Darjeeling, jasmine pearls or an African Rooibos blend for a real treat at my local tea house.

The store brand tea bags just don’t cut it, especially because their flimsy pouches are usually low on flavor and selection. I recently met Annelies Zijderveld, marketing manager of Mighty Leaf Tea Company, through Twitter (www.twitter.com/mightyleaf) and she let me know about their diverse selection of teas that will satisfy even the pickiest tea aficionado.

Mighty Leaf Tea

Annelies sent me a few of their signature blends: Orange Dulce, Green Tea Tropical and Chamomile Citrus. The Orange Dulce is definitely a favorite for the morning and is packed with enough caffeine to get you through the day. The Mighty Leaf tea bags are uniquely designed—and not to mention biodegradable—in silken pouches so the leaves, fruits and spices can emit their full, balanced flavors. The Orange Dulce gave off a sweet smell and left vanilla after tones with each sip. I added a packet of raw sugar and a splash of milk to achieve a richer, more creamy blend.

Green Tea Tropical also has a great blend of green tea leaves, pineapple and guava and is antioxidant packed. Chamomile Citrus is also another great choice to cure the common sore throat or cold and is perfect with a slice of lemon and a dollop of honey. Look closely at this tea bag and you’ll be able to see real citrus rinds and dried berries.

    Thanks for the heads up on Mighty Leaf. That tea bag looks too good to soak in hot water.
    Seems like quality stuff right there.

    @Jude I know! It’s almost too precious to soak in water. You just want to adore the prettiness and inhale the fresh aroma. But the taste is totally worth it!

    I love Mighty Leaf – I buy the big bags of loose tea and it actually comes out to be cheaper than the regular grocery store tea bags. Have you tried the Orange Dulce flavor? mmmm.

    @Robin – Do you have a preference as to how you brew your tea? Do you use a French press? Kettle? Tea ball?

    @Rowell Welcome to WasabiBratwurst, thanks for stopping by. It was nice to meet you at the bloggers meetup.

    Brown rice green tea… I assume you are referring to the popped brown rice?
