When it comes to caffeine, there are quite a number of misconceptions. And, I’m pretty sure I’ve heard them all! The most important thing to understand about caffeine is that the details can be confusing but once broken down, they’re actually quite simple. For caffeine awareness month, I’m debunking five caffeine misconceptions I’ve heard more times than I can count.

Tea is part of a healthy lifestyle and while Mighty Leaf has many delicious herbal infusions, our new line of Wellness Teas, marry that good taste with supplemental health benefits, available in whole leaf tea pouches and loose leaf tea. We believe that if the tea tastes good, people will want to drink it and then they’ll get more benefit – it is a win-win!
When the holidays arrive we know you’ve got a list and you’re checking it twice. Whether your co-workers, family, and friends have been naughty or nice, we have gifts to match every kind of need or taste. To see our tea gifts by price, check out our Mighty Leaf Tea Gift Guide.
Seasons change and so do the teas that fill our teacups. As you pull out the decorations and visit Christmas tree farms for the perfect tree, we’re spreading holiday cheer too. It’s that time of year where our popular holiday favorites are now available: Winter Solstice, Dark Chocolate, and Peppermint Chamomile!
Sold as a threesome, this trio has something for every tea drinker.

Getting ready for autumn means hot tea season has officially begun! Okay, all year long is hot tea season, but during the fall, we reach for different teas and asked our Tea Quality & Beverage Specialist, Anni Pattee for her tips on what she’s drinking this season and how to pair tea with food. The beginning of autumn is also Netflix and chill season, grab all the blankets and bake all the cookies season. We’ve teamed up with our friends at OXO and Anni for ideas to get you started baking with tea. Listen in on Anni’s tea tips for autumn.

Before cold and flu season arrives, we’re bringing the wellness. Introducing our new Wellness Tea Collection! We partnered with herbalist Susan Blanc to create four wellness tea blends to keep you feeling good this winter and beyond.
Matcha’s become quite the recent sensation in the U.S. and it makes sense. Its powder texture and flavor make it distinctive and versatile. You can whisk it into a drink but also use it as an ingredient outside the teacup. Drinking matcha organic green tea puts you in a calm, thoughtful, focused state. Coffee doesn’t have this attribute that’s associated with tea. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that modern matcha comes from Japanese Zen monks who brought the tea from China in the 1200s and incorporated it into a Zen Buddhist lifestyle.
One of the pleasures of my job includes bringing you teas that will knock your socks off. You have come to know and expect excellent teas from Mighty Leaf and we are excited to bring you our all-organic Tea & Company collection of teas. Originally crafted for our high end hotel and restaurant customers, they have recently become available to our loyal customers who shop online. They include some flavors similar to favorites in the Mighty Leaf line-up, but also include fresh and new teas never before offered that we think will win you over like our Chamomile Yuzu.

Iced tea season has begun! Okay, maybe that’s a misnomer because a contingency of tea drinkers prefer their tea iced all-year round (just as a contingency of people prefer their tea hot even during hot months). So, what I’m really pointing to is the notion that once Memorial Day begins, out come the iced tea pitchers at picnics, potlucks, and parties. I’ve shared my 5 tips for making excellent iced tea every time. This summer check out our new iced tea flavors to keep you cool: Caribbean Isle Green Tea, Passion Fruit Black Tea, Organic Mango, Organic Green Tea Tropical, and Organic Pure Black. They join one of my personal iced tea favorites, Summer Solstice and each show it’s easy to brew good iced tea in minutes.
