Mighty Leaf's Organic Mint Melange Tea

All winter long I enjoy mint-flavored teas, so I picked up this tiny tin of loose-leaf Organic Mint Melange Mighty Leaf Tea at T.J. Maxx while out Christmas shopping one day.

This looked like the sort of thing that might have once been part of a gift set, and I wondered how such a small tin (only as tall as a teacup) ended up for sale at the store. But I must tell you that the whole time I've had this tin, I've read it as "Orange" Mint Melange, not "Organic" Mint Melange. When I first tried the tea, I thought, "Hmmm, I'm not tasting any orange here." Do you ever misread anything like this?

At any rate, I enjoyed the nice minty smell when I opened the tin, and my *Organic* Mint Melange herbal tea was quite lovely, a perfect accompaniment to an afternoon sweet!

  1. The funny thing is that I read the title of your post as "Orange Mint..."! Which would have been an interesting flavor. I do enjoy mint tea, too, summer (iced) or winter (hot).

  3. I always wonder how fresh tea is that is sold at places like TJ Maxx?
    This mint tea would be lovely to cook with too, I do believe. Silly girl, yes I read things wrong sometimes too.
