Shane’s Teaview Snapshot
Its OK"The taste is quite-good, if a little one-dimensional... there's just not as much flavor here as in other widely available Darjeelings."

mightyleaf-organic-darjeeling-estate.jpgDarjeeling, the champagne of teas, originate from India. They have a very distinct taste that I enjoy all around when it comes to tea. Mighty Leaf Tea offers quite a selection of tea pouches which are basically a teabag type sachet with loose tea inside of them much like the tea pyramids you might see elsewhere. They come individually wrapped and the website says they are foil wrapped but its more along the lines of a thick paper or cardboard, a small detail but important to note.

So I ripped open the packet and took out the pouch and at first it didn't seem like there was much tea in there but when brewed it opens up a lot and the pouch becomes a nice pillow of tea. According to their website the tea consists of a mix of green and black leaves with gold and silver tips. It brews to a dark golden amber like you would expect with Darjeelings, although it only gave off a faint aroma. The taste is quite good but a bit one-dimensional for me and it didn't seem as sweet as other Darjeeling teas that I have tried. In my history of trying different teas I have noticed that organic teas don't measure up to other teas and this could also be a factor, or perhaps the tea didn't have enough room in the pouch...

Taking everything into consideration the Mighty Leaf Organic Darjeeling Estate tea pouch is convenient if you are somewhere that isn't the best place to brew up loose tea and far better than a cheap teabag of tea dust. I would not buy these personally though, they just didn't offer the amount of flavor that other Darjeeling teas have and in my situation the convenience of a tea bag/pouch doesn't benefit me much.
