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.

Hot and iced tea brewing instructions are listed below.

Hot Tea ::

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 a rolling boil or to 205 F. 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 herbs and fruit 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 5 - 7 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.


Iced Tea ::

A stronger brew is required for iced tea than for hot tea because of ice's dilution action. Prepare a tea concetrate as follows:

Single Serving
For a single serving, prepare as for hot tea, use one rounded tablespoon of loose tea per 6 ounces of water and after brewing pour over ice in a 12 ounce glass.

Large Serving
1. For a larger serving, prepare a iced tea concentrate by bringing one quart of cold water to a rolling boil in a tea kettle.

2. Remove from heat and add 8-10 teaspoons per quart of brewed tea.

3. Steep 5 - 7 minutes or to desired strength.

4. To serve immediately, pour over ice in a tall glass, or add another quart of cold water to the concentrate and chill in refrigerator.

Origin
South Africa

Health Benefits

Rooibos (Aspalanthus linearis)
Research has shown Rooibos contains an unusually high amount of flavonoids similar to that in Green Tea. These flavonoids are thought to prove effective in combating harmful free radicals which can cause cancer, heart disease and strokes.

Naturally caffeine free, Rooibos also possesses other medicinal properties including the ability to lessen the body's reaction to allergies and calm upset stomachs.

Hibiscus (Hibiscus sabdariffa)
Naturally rich in Vitamin C, Hibiscus cools the body, helps lower cholesterol and relaxes the body.

Use
Try drinking African Nectar as an everyday tonic to boost the immune system and increase energy. The rich and delicious, rooibos based blend makes an excellent aperitif or after-dinner drink.

In the alternative, drink in the morning for a lively non-caffeinated alternative to coffee. Pair with sweet desserts or chocolate for a sumptuous treat.
