Mighty Leaf Iced Tea Giveaway

There are a number of cultural differences between Canada and the United States, one of them being iced tea.  Ask just about any Canadian about their first experience ordering iced tea in an American restaurant and you’ll probably hear a similar story, something like “it’s just COLD tea”!

Now that I’m American though, I realize I have to adapt to the iced tea here (at least when my ‘stash’ of Canadian powder runs out…LOL), and I’ve recently been trying different kinds and brands to see what I like best.  Mighty Leaf’s new Ginger Peach Iced Tea happens to be one that is at the top of my list these days.

What I like about the new Mighty Leaf Iced Tea varieties is that they are easy to make. Just boil 32 oz of water and add it to the tea bag in a pitcher, steep for 5 minutes, add your ice and enjoy.  The tea bags themselves are made from a very sturdy material, and the ‘string’ is well made and long enough that there is no worries of the tea bag, string and all slipping into your pitcher while making it.

The instructions recommended to make it in a glass pitcher – and you’ll see that I started my first servings that way…however my thick glass pitcher ended up cracking because of the heat, right at the handle, so I had to ladle out the hot tea.  I ended up having to make mine in a Tupperware pitcher (however if you choose this option, make sure it is real Tupperware as other plastics might warp or melt).

The flavors are quite strong, you definitely notice the fruits and flavors that the teas are made with.  On another note, straight from the pitcher I did notice that the tea was not quite sweet enough for me.  The powdered iced tea mixes I’m used to are quite sweet. I ended up adding a packet of sweetener for every 16 oz (so four packets for the pitcher) – which added just enough sweetness but not enough to make it sickeningly sweet.  

Mighty Leaf Iced Tea pouches come in four different flavors: Sunburst Green Iced Tea , Ginger Peach Iced Tea, Calypso Mango Iced Tea, and Organic Black Iced Tea.

You can also see the Mango Peach Iced Tea recipe I made using the Ginger Peach flavor.
