Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical

Mighty Leaf Green Tea TropicalMighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical is one of my favorite teas that is in a tea bag. My husband and I recently attended a really fundraiser for my daughter's school. The event was held at a really nice local hotel with a very fancy ballroom. After dinner, the servers came around with the dessert course and I asked for a cup of tea. I was very pleased when he returned with a mini tea service with a choice of Mighty Leaf tea pouches.

This tea service contained a mug, teapot full of hot water, a choice of three teas, and a little pot of honey. I went with the Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical. They come individually wrapped in a cello wrap bag, perfect for keeping the tea fresh and throwing in your bag to take with you.

When you can't have loose leaf tea, a tea bag or pouch with full leaf tea is a close second. Mighty Leaf Teas are very full flavored. Order some Mighty Leaf Green Tea Tropical today and see what you think.

What is Wrong With Tea Bags?

tea bagIf you are new to tea drinking or are a long time tea drinker, than chances are you are used to making tea with a tea bag.  There is absolutely nothing wrong with that, but you are missing out on having a really great cup of tea.  Loose leaf tea makes a superior cup of tea for a number of reasons.

The tea leaves inside of a tea bag are usually the leftover little pieces of tea that are too small to be used in a loose leaf tea.  These bits of leaves, or fannings, do not have the same quantity of essential oils that a whole tea leaf does.  These oils are what gives a cup of tea their flavor.

A typical tea bag does not allow the tea leaves the chance to unfurl and expand in the water either.  Tea leaves need to be able to do that to impart flavor to the water.  A tea bag just compresses the leaves together and doesn't allow for that.

It is however possible to get a great cup of tea while using a tea bag.  Look for a tea bag that contains whole tea leaves.  There are several companies that offer tea bags that unfold into a pyramid shape.  This allows the tea leaves to unfurl and expand so that the water can swirl around them.  One of my favorites is Mighty Leaf Tea. Right now Mighty Leaf is on Sale Today! Check it out.  I especially love their Green Tea Tropical and Chamomile Citrus.
