Florida summers are sweltering so sipping a tall glass of refreshing iced tea is the perfect way for my family to cool off on those hot days. I have been a fan of Mighty Leaf teas for two years because these artisan teas never sacrifice quality and make a superior iced tea brew.
Mighty Leaf uses whole leaf pouches with hand crafted blended to ensure that every glass of tea is absolutely perfect and has full bodied taste. There are a wide variety of tea blends to choose from including a few of our favorites such as Ginger Peach, Organic Black, Sunburst Green Tea and Calypso Mango. Each box contains 4 tea pouches to make a total of 2 gallons of iced tea. I use a half gallon pitcher and add 1 tea pouch. Instructions call for adding 32 ounces of boiling water into the glass pitcher but it is so hot in Florida that I prefer to sun brew and it always turns out perfectly.
The Ginger Peach Iced Tea ($6.25 box) has a ripe peach fruit taste with zingy ginger blended into Indian Black Tea for an exceptional summer iced tea. This infusion is lightly sweet naturally so that I don’t even have to add my normal packed of stevia.
I love that Mighty Leaf offers an iced green tea and the Sunburst Green Tea is delicious. It is made using sweet orange and citrus blends with mountain grown Chinese green tea leaves. I appreciate that this tea has a wonderful distinctive taste yet there is no bitterness at all…..just a delightful, powerful green tea taste.
My preference is always to choose organic when it is an option so I really enjoyed trying the Organic Black Tea made with South Indian organic black tea leaves. This makes the perfect Southern Sweet Tea when blended with your favorite sweetener (we use stevia) and a squeeze of fresh lemon. My children like this as a cool treat blended with a hint of cream, a swirl of honey and a dash of cinnamon……delicious!
My husband is a big fan of the Calypso Mango because he really likes that you can taste the mango fruit taste in this blend of South Indian Black tea leaves. It has a really nice aromatic smell that was a hit when served at a recently family barbecue.
I recently discovered a few new accessories that make drinking our iced tea and water even better including the Takeya’s Classic Water Bottle (SRP $19.99) which is a premium recycled water bottle that has a wide mouth and is protected with a vibrantly colored silicone jacket. The airtight twist cap and sturdy loop makes this a great alternative to plastic and metal bottles!
My personal favorite tea pitcher is the Takeya Iced Tea Pitcher ($16.95) which holds 66 ounces of freshly brewed iced tea. It is stain proof, won’t become cloudy and is odor proof with a convenient airtight twist top lid. I normally use glass pitches but love this Japanese inspired design which is made of BPA free and food safe AcrGlass which is actually a safer plastic alternative that I can feel confident serving to my family.
I love that Mighty Leaf Tea gives me the tea and accessories that I need in order to make freshly brewed, delicious tea easily which is a bonus for busy families like mine. You are invited to visit Mighty Leaf Tea to browse the entire selection of premium teas, blends and accessories.
