Preparing the perfect cup of tea is a process to be savored. Watch how the traditional elements harmoniously come together to make the perfect cup and enjoy the liberation of pure tea goodness.
This is what we call the Mighty Leaf signature multi-sensory ("sensory melange") tea experience. Come share with us and learn how to get infused.
The quality of tea is affected by the quality of water used to prepare it. Using filtered or bottled water is best. If possible, avoid brewing tea with tap, distilled or mineral water. Never over-boil water, as it results in flat-tasting tea.
1) Heat filtered or bottled water to a rolling boil and then let sit for 1-2 minutes or heat to 170F-180F. 2) While the water is heating pour hot water into your teapot and cups, let sit and then drain completely. A warm teapot will maintain the requisite temperature for superior tasting tea.
Whole Leaf Tea
Slowly open up our specially created, sensually handcrafted tea pouch and enjoy the aroma of fresh whole tea leaves. Use one Mighty Leaf tea pouch per cup.
Pour water over tea pouch. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 2 - 3 minutes. Watch how the leaves within the pouch have room to gracefully unfurl in your cup, creating a rich and flavorful infusion and a superior tasting tea.
Savor the Leaf
Sip your cup and rediscover the pleasure of the way tea was naturally meant to be. This is the magic of Mighty Leaf.
Both black and green tea originate from the same plant, the Camellia sinensis. However, the final product differs in style, taste and caffeine content due to differences in processing. Green teas are not fermented or fully oxidized like black teas, but instead steamed or pan fired.
Like black teas though, green tea contains an abundant source of natural plant-derived antioxidant compounds called polyphenols. Included within the broad antioxidant polyphenol class are flavonoids and catechins. A kind of flavonoid, catechins are found in tea leaves and may provide protective antioxidant action against harmful free radicals. Research shows that these free radicals cause heart disease, some kinds of cancer and increase the risk of strokes.
Drinking green tea with its high antioxidant levels help protect the body by combating dangerous free radical activity. Further health benefits of green tea may include lowering cholesterol, strengthening the immune system, promoting healthy blood vessel functionalityand even protecting teeth and bones. In addition, green tea provides a source of nutrients including magnesium. Manganese, potassium, calcium, and the vitamins C and K all in trace amounts.
Mint promotes healthy digestion and aids in soothing indigestion. Get a dose of aromatherapy too, as the scent promotes calm and quiet.
Share this classic tea with friends and family any time of day. Start your own mint green tea ritual, like in Morocco where tea is drunk everywhere as a sign of hospitality and sharing. Prepare in a traditional metal teapot and pour into beautiful Moroccan glass cups adorned with color, elegant designs. Add lumps of sugar and serve with small cakes and pastries.
