mightyleaf-organic-detox.jpgI am a big fan of herbal teas, but typically this means one flavor (such as peppermint, lemongrass, or chamomile). Only on rare occasions have I experienced herbal teas that blend together more than two or three different varieties of herbs. By its appearance, Mighty Leaf's organic detox tea, on the other hand, seems to contain a splash of everything, so I found this tea to be a very intriguing proposition. I decided to approach this tea sampling without any prior knowledge of the ingredients to see if I could discern the ingredients. Indeed, this proved to be a more difficult challenge than I anticipated. After my first cup, the only flavor which I could readily identify was peppermint, and I was reduced to visiting Mighty Leaf's website to learn of the ingredients in their Organic Detox tea: dandelion root, licorice root, burdock root, peppermint, red clover flower, and basil. Peppermint and licorice root were the only ingredients on this long list that I had ever had in tea before, and to be honest, I am not at all familiar with some of the ingredients (e.g. burdock root).

Once brewed, the tea is a dark yellowish-green color. Right from the start, I was pleasantly overwhelmed by the pure smell of the tea, which was a bit peppery and had a cleansing sensation to it. The taste was equally pure, and I was amazed at the intensity of flavor. The strongest flavor component was definitely a pepper-like taste, which I can only attribute to one of the ingredients with which I am less familiar; perhaps it is the burdock root or the dandelion root that lends the peppery spiciness. The pepper flavor is not at all comparable to what is offered by Yunnan black teas, as the taste here was much more authentic, as if fresh cracked black pepper was in the cup. While this pepperiness was not a flavor I expected from this tea, it was not altogether unpleasant, and definitely could be perceived as "detoxifying". However, ss I wasn't prepared for it, I did find the intensity of the spiciness to be a little harsh on the throat, but this harshness was much reduced by my second and third cups. The pepper flavor was followed by clean, minty undertones, and then a variety of some sharp herbal notes that were hard to distinguish. My only criticism about this tea was that perhaps the long list of ingredients results in the inability to really get true flavor notes from the individual ingredients. For example, I was really hoping to be able to detect a stronger basil component, but was unable to do so.

In all, this tea was tasty and left the mouth with a feeling comparable to that nice, clean feeling one gets right after a dental cleaning. I am not a medical doctor, nor do I practice bush medicine, so I can't attest to whether or not the tea lives up to its claims of preventing indigestion and inflammation or purifying the liver, heart, spleen, and blood. I will have to leave that matter up to the experts to decide. All I do know it that Mighty Leaf's Organic Detox is a tasty, intriguing blend, and one which I will definitely consider purchasing on my next online trip to Mighty Leaf.
