For loose leaf herbal iced teas, use 3 tsp per 8oz glass and double the steep time.
Herbal teas, technically speaking, are not true teas as they are not a product of the Camellia sinensis plant. They are properly referred to as "tisanes" or infusions, crafted from dried herbs, flowers, leaves, roots, seeds and fruit. Like tea, herbal infusions have been consumed for centuries as healing tonics to lift the spirit and enhance well-being. Our Herbal blends are hand crafted with artisan care and a vast knowledge of how theantioxidant properties and therapeutic applications ofpure, fresh herbs, flowers, and botanicals, deliver delicious healthful infusions that can delight both mind and body.

Simple, Refreshing Tea
The peppermint flavor is colored only slightly by a tinge of lemon. A very simple, yet satisfying, mint tea.

Good tea without the girly smell!
Hey, even a guy needs to cut down on the caffienne, but I don't want a cup of perfume either. Citrus mint has a bold mint flavor with all the quality of the other Tea Forte teas, but without the flower garden notes my wife likes in her tea. Thank you to the GUYS at Tea Forte.

Isn't mint just mint? No!
You'd think that mint would just be mint, right? Why would one peppermint tea be substantially better than another? I don't know, but this one is, and I've always liked peppermint tea. This one is something special. Maybe it's just the lemon zest in there with it or maybe they've got a fairy on staff with a little wand. All I know is it's delicious.

Refreshing and light
This is one of my favorite teas from Tea Forte. I love the simple combination of real mint leaves and bits of lemon zest. It tastes great both hot and cold.

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.
