Mighty Leaf Tea
I am a HUGE ice tea person, it is definitely one of my favorite beverages. So when I got the opportunity to review some of Mighty Leaf Tea iced tea products I jumped at the opportunity.
Mighty Leaf Tea was born for the sole purpose of infusing life into an ancient indulgence by creating tea products that reach new heights of quality and innovation.
The genesis of Mighty Leaf Tea came in 1996 as a result of a shared passion and dream envisioned by husband-and-wife team Gary Shinner and Jill Portman when they founded their teahouse on Fillmore St. in San Francisco.
Their passion is for creating the most incredible handcrafted tea blends found anywhere, globally sourcing the finest ingredients available. Paralleling the highest standards of quality at Mighty Leaf Tea is ongoing creative innovation.
Their specially created handcrafted Tea Pouches are designed to unleash the essence of the quality that is Mighty Leaf Tea. Supporting our quality and innovation is our promise to deliver the highest level of customer service excellence in serving you the finest tea products available.
The nice people over at Might Leaf Tea were kind enough to send me a couple of boxes of their iced tea mixes that over the past few weeks I have been giving a try. They sent me Calypso Mango, Ginger Peach, Organic Black, and Sunburst Green Tea. All of which I loved, but if I had to choose a favorite I would definitely go with the Calypso Mango. I've always liked black tea a little more than green tea and the addition mango just set it over the top.
It was very easy to make, they give you a step by step guide on how to brew it. What I ended up doing was bringing two cups of water to a boil, then adding the boiling water to a glass drink pitcher. Then I added 3/4 cup of sugar to the hot water and stirred to dissolve (I like sweet tea). I then added my choice of Mighty Leaf Tea bag to the pitcher and let it steep for about 5 min. Next, I removed the tea bag and squeezed all the excess water out, then filled up the drink pitcher with 2 more cups of cold water and then refrigerate. Or instead of adding 2 cups of cold water, you can fill the pitcher up with ice to serve immediately.
