Steep for 5 minutes, 208°F
For stronger flavor, steep longer.
For loose leaf herbal iced teas, use 3 tsp per 8oz glass and double the steep time.
Hibiscus is also rich in vitamin C, accounting for its tart flavor. It has been consumed as a mild medicine since the time when it was a favorite drink of the Pharaohs.

Fresh and juicy
Hope its okay to mention a competing brand here but it you like Celestial Seasonings Tangerine Zinger you have got to try this! Its a fresher, zippier, better, loose leaf version. Perfect blend of juicy tart fall flavors! Please Tea Forte, can you make this one available in a canister?

A flavor party in your mouth!
This is THE tastiest tea I have ever had! As the tea cools, the flavors become even brighter! My sister said, “it makes my mouth happy!”.

Bold Citrus Flavor
This tea is a wonderfully contrasting blend of a heady orange flavor on top of earthy undertones. It has just the right amount of sweetness to balance out the tart citrus notes.

Fruity and sweet. Pleasantly surprised.

A very refreshing combo of clearly top notch ingredients. I drink a lot of tea, A LOT of tea, this one still managed to not only impress but also stand way out as unique among citrus blends!

Absolutely delicious blend!
This tea was wonderful. I wasn't expecting the depth of flavor that it had, so I was definitely pleasantly surprised. Both tart and sweet, but with just the right amount of both. Decidedly my favorite tea, just wish they would offer it as a stand-alone product.

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
