For stronger flavor, steep longer.
For loose leaf herbal iced teas, use 3 tsp per 8oz glass and double the steep time.

Definitely don't like this tea. The spearmint notes are way too overpowering and I couldn't finish my cup. It made me feel a little sick in my stomach. I do not recommend this tea! Awful flavor.

I absolutely love it when I first tried it and you can taste the minty flavor afterwards! I was really surprised how it has this good combination of citrus and minty flavor. I shared this with my 4 friends and they enjoyed this tea as well too. I will continue buy this tea :D

Loved this flavor! The combination of orange with a hint of mint is perfect; brings to mind the tropical vacations, even on the coldest winter night.

I tried this as part of a sample pack. I could have put Burt Bees on my lips then licked them for the same flavor of this tea. I do not recommend.

This is a wonderful, flavorful tea unlike any other Tea Forte I've tried. My only cautionary note is that the the wonderful flavor of the pyramid-shaped bags was lost when I tried the individual sachets. If you buy it, go for the pyramids!

Amazing juicy flavor
Thank you for making this new set of herbal teas! I wouldn't normally buy an orange peel tea but I tried it in the single steeps set and loved it right away. Very juicy and invigorating, the mint is a perfect addition. This is a great way to wake up in the morning without the caffeine.

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.
