Organic Earl Grey Named Best in Class

January 28th, 2011 by admin

Mighty Leaf’s Organic Earl Grey was recently selected by “Everyday with Rachel Ray” magazine to compete in its Black Tea Taste Test. The results were announced in the February 2011 issue and it named our Organic Earl Grey as the “Best Earl Grey”. One of our best sellers, this tea is known for its well balanced blend of organic black tea and citrusy bergamot.

The magazine said:

“Earl Grey (black tea flavored with bergamot citrus oil) can sometime taste bitter or astringent, but this brew is perfectly balanced. ’It has a smoky orange flavor–mmm,’ one panelist cooed as she savored this complex earthy blend. After taking a sip, another enthusiastic taste deemed it ‘pure perfection’. ”

Our Organic Earl Grey is perfect not only in the morning but throughout the day. A great alternative to coffee, it delivers an energetic boost with a unique depth of flavor and body. Organic Earl Grey 15 Count Tea Pouches are available in supermarkets and online. If you are interested in purchasing in bulk you can also find 100 Count Tea Pouches and loose tea options on our website.

Go ahead and introduce yourself to the “Earl” – we’d like to think that the original “Earl” would be proud to drink our version of this classic. Happy steeping!

Nothing like a feel good banking ad to make you aspire to be more.

It provides a quick peek into Mighty Leaf and introduces you to our CEO, Gary Shinner. The Mighty Leaf footage was shot at our headquarters in San Rafael, California (about 20 minutes north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge).

Breakfast Tea: Jump Start Your Day

Bliss DakeMay 3rd, 2010 by Bliss Dake

Mornings are slow for me. Having two kids with a third on the way will do that to you. So I jump from bed to the kitchen, and fire up a cup of something black – a strong breakfast tea, perhaps a spicy chai or I will admit sometimes even coffee. You know the drill, I am not alone. Every day tea fans around the world tame their mornings and energize with tea rituals ranging from tea cups of English Breakfast with a spot of milk to mugs of earthy Rooibos. The question arises then as to what exactly constitutes a breakfast tea? (more…)

Lapsang What?

Lapsang Souchong is either a love or hate thing for tea fans. A familiar refrain is that it’s like drinking a campfire. If Smokey the Bear had a favorite tea, perhaps this would be the one. With its famous smokey taste and aroma, Lapsang Souchong is produced in the Wuyi Mountains of Fujian, China by smoking black tea in bamboo baskets over pine fires. (more…)

To most bar goers now, the martini is generic for vodka served up in a cocktail glass, or maybe even some flavored vodka concoction like a chocolotini or Appletini. But that’s not how the martini got its start. In the late 19th century up until at least the 1960s, the martini was a gin drink. (more…)
