Mighty Leaf Tea Review!



I received a sample from Mighty Leaf for the sole purpose of this review

I'm a major tea drinker. I became caffeine intolerant a few years back so drinking coffee had to stop. I can have decaf once in a while, but anymore than that and it makes me sick. So I began drinking tea. Although some tea has quite a bit of caffeine in it, ALL tea has less caffeine than coffee :) That alone was enough to make me start drinking tea. 

I miss coffee at times, but waking up to a cup of black tea or green tea just makes the day so much better for me. I have at least 1 cup a day. 
So when I came across Mighty Leaf I knew I had to try their tea!

They sent me a gorgeous prize package that included 4 iced teas, a glass and a pitcher


The tea bags are really big

You boil water (I use my tea kettle of course), put the tea bag inside the pitcher (it has a really long string on it too) and then pour the water in. You steep it for 5 minutes and then remove the bag. Then you fill the pitcher with ice and stir. I like the add honey and let that dissolve before adding my ice. 

The pitcher is really nice and has a nice screw on lid. You screw it open and open/close it more to adjust the flow of liquid. You can also close it all the way and store it in the fridge for a couple days before it starts going bitter. The pitcher is half a gallon and I find that it lasts me 2 days perfectly!! 

The tea is really really good too. My favorite is the Calypso Mango, the Ginger Peach is really nice too. Then I got the Sunburst Green Tea and the Organic Black. 
This is just their line of iced teas. 

They have regular loose leaf teas and other tea bags as well. 

For now I'm loving the iced teas. It's still in the 80s here so it comes in handy!! And it's a healthy drink, great alternative to soda that's for sure.

Some recipes!!

  • Mighty Leaf Calypso Mango Cooler

Ingredients
32 oz. Mighty Leaf Calypso Mango Iced Tea (1/4 of a gallon)
10 oz.  Pineapple Juice
2 ½ oz.  Lemon Juice
2 ½ oz.  Agave Nectar

Pour half of the Calypso Mango Iced Tea into another pitcher.  Now your Takeya iced tea pitcher holds 32 oz. of Mighty Leaf Iced Tea.  Add remaining ingredients, stir, pour over ice, enjoy!

  • Mighty Leaf Ginger Peach Fizz

Ingredients
32 oz. Mighty Leaf Ginger Peach Iced Tea (1/4 of a gallon)
8 oz.  Lemon Juice
8 oz.  Mint Syrup
16 oz.  Soda Water

Pour half of the Ginger Peach Iced Tea into another pitcher.  Now your Takeya iced tea pitcher holds 32 oz. of Mighty Leaf Iced Tea.  Add remaining ingredients, stir, pour over ice, enjoy!

  • Mighty Leaf Ginger Peach Julep

Ingredients
32 oz. Mighty Leaf Ginger Peach Iced Tea (1/4 of a gallon)
10 oz.  Orange Juice
4 to 5 oz.  Agave Nectar

Pour half of the Ginger Peach Iced Tea into another pitcher.  Now your Takeya iced tea pitcher holds 32 oz. of Mighty Leaf Iced Tea.  Add remaining ingredients, stir, pour over ice, enjoy!

Price: The Tea Bags are $5.99 for 4 bags, but again, each bag makes half a gallon!!!

Overall: ***** love these teas! Very comparable to other 'expensive' teas I've had.
