Bombay Chai: Black Tea with the spices of pepper, orange, cinnamon, cardamom and clove. The spice blend is very similar to the usual pumpkin spices.
Rainforest Mate: Herbal tea infused with spices and fruit for an energizing tea.
Vanilla Bean: Black tea with rich Madagascar vanilla.
Chocolate Mint Truffle: Caffeine-free rooibos tea blended with chocolate cacao nibs, and mint.
Matcha Green tea: Powdered green tea, high in antioxidants. Used in Japanese tea ceremonies as well as recipes.
I loved tasting all these fine flavors of Mighty Leaf Tea. Each tea had its own unique qualities. My favorite of the teas is the Chocolate Mint Truffle. The cocoa is light and the mint brings a refreshing zing to the tea. For a bolder smooth tea, I am in love with the Vanilla Bean. This tea delights the senses in aroma and taste. The blend is naturally sweet from the vanilla. I found it extremely pleasing. If you like a spice tea, the Bombay Chai is amazingly good. As for the Matcha, I am not quite sure how to brew it so I am saving it for use in a recipe.
Try making your own Tea drink in place of those high calorie coffee lattes. Here is a recipe to get you started.
BOMBAY CHAI TEA LATTE
• 1 Bombay Chai Tea Pouch
• 10 oz. Purified Water
• 2 oz. or 4 tbspmilk
• 1 tsp. Sugar or to taste
Boil purified water. Pour hot water over Tea Pouch and let it steep for five minutes. When steeping is complete, remove Tea Pouch from cup and discard. Pour milk, sugar and tea into a large bowl and blend with hand mixer until it becomes frothy (or if you have an espresso machine use your frother). Pour beverage into a mug and enjoy.
You can use this simple recipe for most of the tea flavors. How about adding a dollop of whipped cream to a Chocolate Mint drink? Yum.
