I will be the first to admit, I have never been much of a tea drinker, iced or otherwise. You see, I was absolutely hooked on soda for years. That's what fueled me, and it also caused me to gain a good amount of weight due to all of the empty calories and added sugar. Well, I have finally broken that addiction and my waistline is thanking me. After giving up regular sodas, about 25lbs just fell right off of me! But as bad as this sounds, I am NOT a fan of plain old water, either. Suddenly, tea became a whole lot more appealing! But where to start? With SO many varieties to choose from, finding the right tea can seem a little bit daunting of a task. I have heard of Mighty Leaf Tea on several blogs I am a regular reader of, and they consistently receive rave reviews. So naturally, I knew I wanted to begin my tea experiment with them. Why not begin with the best, right? Much to my delight, the nice folks at Mighty Leaf Tea Company agreed to send me an assortment of their fine teas to sample.
Why is Mighty Leaf Tea unique? Well, they add a little human touch to their special brews! Their tea leaves are hand-picked, and so are their herbs fruits and spices in dozens of varieties that are sure to please even the pickiest of palates. Mighty Leaf incorporates a small batch, whole leaf blending process which guarantees superb quality with every sip you take. They also handcraft and hand-stitch their tea pouches, which are made from fully biodegradable materials. Mighty Leaf Tea Pouches are crafted from corn-derived PLA. These pouches decompose into carbon dioxide and water in a controlled composting environment. The speed of degredation varies largely depending on the temperature, moisture and PH level of the soil, as well as the types and number of micro-organisms present. The string and tag are also compostable and do not need to be removed before discarding. So Mighty Leaf demonstrates a great deal of social and environmental responsibility as well. Gotta love that, right?
But the question remains: Are Mighty Leaf Teas GOOD? Yes! Even to an inexperienced tea drinker like me! I received a variety of Mighty Leaf Iced Tea blends, which are perfect for summer. Among my favorites are the Ginger Peach Iced Tea and the Calypso Mango Iced Tea. Both of these wonderfully refreshing blends are incredibly flavorful, offering a sweet, fruity finish. All of the flavors in these teas marry beautifully, creating an unforgettable and luxurious tea-drinking experience. I especially loved the hint of ginger in the Ginger Peach Iced Tea, which added a slight spiciness to the sweetness of the peach flavor. In a word: Perfection! I also really enjoyed the Sunburst Green Iced Tea, which is a light, refreshing blend complemented by citrus notes. And you know how good green tea is for the body, right? I had tried green tea varieties before, but only in bottled varieties that can be found in the cooler of convenience stores. I never really enjoyed it until I tried Mighty Leaf's variety. This simply blows the others out of the water! The Organic Black Iced Tea was also quite good, but not as sweet as the others. I found that adding ice cubes made from fresh fruit juices really livened this deep, organic blend up considerably.
Overall, I was quite impressed by the fantastic, hand-crafted teas that Mighty Leaf Tea has to offer. They are crisp, refreshing, and perfect for relaxing on a hot summer's evening. I love what this company stands for and the extra care they put into the manufacturing process of these superior teas. So while I may not have always been a tea-drinker, Mighty Leaf has made a convert of me!
