Mighty Leaf Organic African Nectar

I have always been a fan of Mighty Leaf because their silky tea bags always feel like a luxury. I like that they are individually wrapped as well. I always throw one in my bag before heading off to a late night class. They list the ingredients of this tea as including rooibos leaves, natural tropical flavors, natural flavors, hibiscus flowers, rose petals, mallow blossoms and marigold flowers. I loved the look of this tea, all of those bright colors mixed in with the rooibos leaves.

The liquor was a deep reddish color and had a floral aroma. This tea was surprisingly traditional, a classic rooibos taste with just a hint of tropical flavoring. Mighty Leaf managed to find a perfect balance, where the rooibos isn’t overwhelmed but is complemented by other ingredients. It was relaxing and invigorating at the same time.
