leaves-of-provence.jpgMighty Leaf's Leaves of Provence is an attractive black tea with a strongly fruity and floral scenting. The dried leaf is a standard looking black tea interspersed with many green leaves - mint I'd guess from Mighty Leaf's description of the tea as being comprised of the following ingredients: Black tea, mint, verbena, lime tea, lavender, citrus fruits, rose tea, dried fruit pieces, orange peels, vanilla pieces, white tea, natural flavors, cornflower petal. The verbena and lime and citrus bits account for the zesty citrusy scenting, which is quite pronounced, and the lavender and perhaps again the verbena account for the lovely floral scenting of the tea. I was pretty intrigued by smells and appearances at this point so I brewed up a pot with a rounded tablespoon of tea to 24 ounces of just at a boil water.

This tea had a surprising taste, not altogether delicious, but not too bad either in my opinion. It was definitely a black tea, but managed to be equally herbal and minty in its taste. I suppose I would conclude that this is an aromatic tea - coming across more as an herbal blend with black tea added, rather than the other way around.

Most forward in taste is an herbal minty sort of flavor reminiscent of an herbal throat lozenge, only milder and sweeter than that. I thought that taste was pleasant overall, but unusual in a hot tea, lest it be a sort of cold remedy or soother type of tea. I immediately thought that this tea would be wonderful over ice in the summertime and can definitely see myself brewing it in the hot months of the year, with a splash of lemon and maybe some fresh mint to spruce up the dried mint in the blend.

As a hot tea, this tea didn't quite float my boat. It tasted too much like a remedy I'd only drink if I had a tease of a sore throat. As a potentially flavorful and not over the top fruity iced tea, though, I'm intrigued to try this again. The balance of fruit and floral notes is nice, and the mint is an interesting addition, but I think this tea would be best over ice in the hot summer months...
