Mighty Leaf Tea Review: Specialty Tea Brand Born in the USA

Mighty Leaf Tea

Mighty Leaf Tea isn’t one of the biggest brands in the United States. It’s available at specialty stores like Whole Foods and even Bed, Bath & Beyond. But the teas are available online, and you may be considering buying a few blends.

Before you do, read on to find out everything you need to know about Mighty Leaf Tea.

Who are Mighty Leaf Tea?

Mighty Leaf Tea company was launched in 1996 by Gary Shinner and Jill Portman. The two were shopping for engagement rings when they took a break over a pot of whole leaf tea. Their love of whole leaf tea was born, and in 1996 they left Chicago for San Francisco.

Tea & Company was the first Mighty Leaf Tea location. The brick and mortar tea house was successful… for a while. However, after the dot com crash in the 2000s, Jill and Gary were forced to close up shop. They didn’t, however, give up on their tea business.

Gary and Jill took advantage of the fact that they had huge wholesale customers. From luxury hotels to Michelin starred restaurants, Jill and Gary continued their success on a wholesale level.

Today, you’ll find Mighty Leaf Tea in these commercial locations but you can also buy household products online. Individual tea bags are available through the Mighty Leaf website as well as sites like Amazon.

You’ll find a huge range of teas available in the Mighty Leaf Tea collection. Among those blends are:

  • Organic African Nectar
  • Chamomile Citrus
  • Green Tea Tropical
  • Organic Almond Spice
  • Vanilla Bean
  • Coconut Assam
  • Wild Berry Hibiscus

As you can see, there are plenty of flavors to choose from. But what are customers saying about Mighty Leaf Tea? Is it as good as you’d expect from a Michelin starred restaurant?

Mighty Leaf Tea Reviews

Mighty Leaf Tea Review
Bombay Chai is a favorite among Mighty Leaf Tea customers. They describe the chai as clean, simple and warm, and note that it’s similar to the chai they’ve had in restaurants.

Mighty Leaf Tea customers also loved the Spring Jasmine green tea. The flavor is described as smooth and, of course, floral. A complaint among customers, though, is that the mail order tea bags they received aren’t as full as those bought in stores. Therefore, the flavor seemed to be weaker.

The price was a negative for many Mighty Leaf Tea drinkers. Like Numi Tea, the brand is more expensive than most. The typical box of 15 tea pouches costs around $6 at most retailers. Many customers thought that was too high.

Overall, though, reviews of Mighty Leaf Tea were great. Most buyers were repeat customers, and not too many complained about the price.

Should You Buy Mighty Leaf Tea?

Most customers are very satisfied with the quality, variety and flavor of Mighty Leaf Teas. And although the price of the tea is higher than some other brands, a majority of customers thought the quality of the tea justified the cost.

Mighty Leaf Teas are available at some grocery stores, and at Amazon, and we would definitely recommend trying them out for yourself.
