Mighty Leaf - Organic Earl Grey

Date Rated: March 2006

Ingredients: Organically grown black tea leaves and golden buds with a twist of citrusy organic bergamot.

Tea format: Individually sealed bags with strings. Also loose.

Where to get it: Mighty Leaf graciously sent me this tea as a sample. You can order some for yourself on their web site.

Recommended Preparation: Steep bag for 5 minutes. (10 oz. cup.)

Comments: Automatic kudos for being organic. This is a smooth, medium-bodied tea with a good amount of bergamot and no astringency. Mighty Leaf's tea bags are unique works of art that are individually sewn pouches with loose tea inside. I admire them, but I also feel guilty using them on a regular basis. They would be fun to impress your tea friends with.
