Brew
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.

Water
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.

Fire
1) Heat filtered or bottled water to 185-205F, less than boiling. 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
Prepare Mighty Leaf teas using a teapot, paper tea sachet, infuser or traditional brewing methods. Use one rounded tablespoon of loose oolong tea per 12 ounces or cup of water.

Infusion Time
Pour boiling water over tea leaves. Keep teapot covered to retain heat. Time steeping carefully and infuse for 3 - 5 minutes.

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.

Health Benefits

Oolong tea
Like black and green teas, oolong 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 oolong tea with its high antioxidant levels helps protect the body by combating dangerous free radical activity.

In addition, oolong tea provides a source of nutrients including magnesium, Manganese, potassium, calcium, the vitamins C and K and the amino acid theanine, all in trace amounts.

Jasmine (Jasminum grandiflorum, Jasminum officinale)
Highly esteemed in Asia, the Middle East and India, the name Jasmine originates from the Persian term Yasmin meaning fragrant flower. This queen of flowers has long been used in aromatherapy to help relax the nervous system and treat depression. Jasmine oil also is known to help remedy muscle pain, coughs and assist with healing scars.

Lavender (Lavandula angustifolia, Lavandula officinalis)
Native to western Mediterranean and France, Lavender is well known for soothing and relaxing the nervous system in addition to aiding digestion. It is thought to help treat headaches and depression.

Use
Oolongs like Bleu Peacock begged to be drunk solo so that you can appreciate the complex depth of aroma and layers of flavor. However, oolongs are also versatile teas traditionally drunk with food.

Bleu Peacock pairs well with a wide array of foods, including meat, seafood and chocolate.
