Tea Latte Shuffle

Organic Earl Grey Latte

My favorite part of autumn is the mellow beauty of the foliage. A close second is a steaming cup of something fresh and delicious: spiced hot cider, rich hot chocolate with fresh chocolate shavings. But the seasonal treat that has me most excited this year is the tea latte!

“Tea latte?” I hear you say, “I never thought of making a latte with tea.” Wow are you missing out! And we’ve made a video to prove it. Introducing the Tea Latte Shuffle:


The whole process is really simple.

Tea Lattes

  1. Steep your favorite hot tea pouch in 6 oz. of hot water. (4 minutes for black tea, 5 minutes for herbal infusions)
  2. While the tea is steeping, steam 6 oz. or milk.
    OR
    Use a frother (like this one) to froth up a few ounces of warm milk.
  3. Blend the milk and the tea together gently.
  4. Add extra foam to the top of the beverage and garnish with something fun. (For instance, an Organic Earl Grey latte goes really well with cinnamon.)
  5. Sweeten to taste.

Several of our teas make amazing lattes, including Organic Earl Grey, Organic African Nectar, Vanilla Bean, Bombay Chai, and Chocolate Mint Truffle. Or you can save a bit of shopping time and pick up our Tea Latte Starter Set. Enjoy the season, and be sure to tell your friends about the Tea Latte Shuffle!

Savor Some Shiny, New Tea Pouch Video

How do you describe how a tea pouch differs from a tea bag? Well, we’ve shot 20 videos of our signature tea pouches and posted on our website’s product pages. Learning to control the speed of water as it poured from the tea kettle into the glass tea cup for purposes of shooting the video was quite the experience. Enjoy this sample of a customer favorite, Green Tea Tropical.

A Feel Good Bank Ad with Mighty Leaf

Mighty LeafOctober 1st, 2010 by Mighty Leaf

Nothing like a feel good banking ad to make you aspire to be more. We thought you might enjoy seeing a local ad that was produced by the Bank of Marin, our local bank, highlighting their relationship with our company. 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).
