I wouldn’t normally have any contact with those odd, restricting constructions of convenience called “tea bags,” but Mighty Leaf Tea sent us some bagged teas to sample, so I gave one a chance. Mighty Leaf Tea’s bags are a little different, in good ways. The company calls them “silken pouches” to differentiate them from those common paper things full of tea dust. The bags are biodegradable and held together with unbleached cotton string rather than glue or staples. They are also quite roomy, so the tea does not suffer as much from the constriction that tea suffers in cheap, standard bags. It’s a little disconcerting not to be able to really see what the tea looks like or fully determine the dry, pre-infused aroma, but the pouches work surprisingly well. Mighty Leaf has been commended considerably for their green packaging.
The first of the teas I sampled was “Orange Dulce,” an engaging blend of black and green teas supplemented with citrus, vanilla and jasmine.
– from Mighty Tea’s description:
Orange Dulce is a luscious, rich brew teeming with notes of bergamot, orange, vanilla and jasmine blossoms. Made with Ceylon and China black teas, Orange Dulce brews up a fragrant and full bodied dark tea. Reminiscent of an aged Port, the flavor is sure to please.
Ingredients: Black tea, green tea, natural citrus flavors, natural flavors, jasmine flowers
The citrus flavors dominate the brew, but do not overpower the taste of the actual teas. The scent of vanilla lingers above the cup, but is much less detectable in the mouth. The scent is quite sweet, but the flavor is not, which is a characteristic that I really liked. It was only after several sips of the tea that I recognized that I could taste both the black and green teas quite distinctly. A black/green blend is an unusual idea, but it creates a nice effect in this particular tea.
It does not hold up to a second infusion. I wouldn’t expect it to, but it’s always worth a try. Orange Dulce is available loose as well as in pouches.

THE SECRET SALCE BEHIND FUND SELECTION
Two Types of Major College scholarships
Just before we get in composition, let me define what i’m saying by a ‘major’ scholarship. You can find two major types We are focusing on. The foremost is the kind that promises more than just bucks. These free college funding also include unique mentoring, enrichment experiences, management development, study opportunities, embraced experiences by using a cohort connected with fellow historians, and/or entrance to an is in program. Any some of these activities might be marketed in addition to a whole (or close full) journey to college. Could possibly be anywhere from some to 52 scholarships to go around for each inbound class in various colleges in the United States (the Stamps President’s Scholarship from Georgia Tech falls straight into this category).
The second type scholarship is one of expensive or perhaps most exclusive scholarship within a particular university. It’s not unconventional to find some or 20 of these scholarships or grants sitting there with the students considered ‘the good the best’ in the newly arriving class. Requirements for line is often very scholastically focused, but is not exclusively. Bonuses beyond financing for the cost of attendance usually are hit or miss, typically miss (though sometimes these come with admission to an recognizes program).
