Mighty Leaf Organic Earl Grey Black
A Very Good Organic Earl Grey Tea
Summary : This is a pleasant but only moderately
strong earl grey tea. If you like a slightly weaker tea, then
should like this one. Otherwise, if searching for a more typical and
powerful flavor in your earl grey tea...find another one.
Review : I'm a hopeless earl grey tea lover. I love
the aroma. I love the flavor. And as such, I'll try any earl grey tea
that I come across.
Due to this addiction of mine...I was quite enthuastic about sampling
the earl grey tea from Mighty Leaf. I personally have found Mighty Leaf
teas to be absolutely superb...mainly because their bagged teas are actually
put in tea pouches and contain true loose-leaf tea leaves. As such, I've
found Mighty Leaf teas to be incredibly flavorful.
Here is how Mighty Leaf describes this tea : "Organic Earl Grey is made
of rich organically grown black tea leaves and golden buds with a twist
of citrusy organic bergamot. Mighty Leaf perfects the classic tea with
an elegant, balanced and full flavored cup. Earl Grey himself would be
This tea contains the following ingredients : "Organic black tea, essence
of bergamot, essence of jasmine."
The aroma of this tea was moderately strong. It was a pleasant fragrance,
and I had no complaints. It is just that it was not as strong as I was
expecting or preferred.
And the flavor of the tea more or less matched the fragrance. The flavor
was quite pleasing...it just wasn't very strong. Now admittedly, this
comes from the lack of ingredients found in the tea...as it doesn't have
the laundry list of ingredients more commonly found in other earl grey
teas. Because of this, the flavor of bergamot is quite distinct and pronounced...more
so than in other earl grey teas. But, the overall flavor of the tea itself
is of only moderate strength.
Whether this is good or bad really depends on what you are looking for.
If you want a more moderate strength earl grey tea...without a huge list
of ingredients...then this tea will meet your requirements perfectly.
But if you are looking for a earl grey tea with a "bit more sizzle,"
as if found in most other earl grey teas, you may be disappointed by
the "lack of spice" found in this tea from Mighty Leaf.
Recommendation : Yes. This is a very good and enjoyable
earl grey tea. How much you enjoy the tea will greatly depend on how
much flavor you want.
