Citrus notes balanced by cool spearmint and mellow licorice.
1. Heat water to 208˚F.
2. Place tea in cup and pour water over the leaves.
3. Steep for 5-7 minutes.
For loose leaf iced teas, use 3 tsp per 8oz glass and double the steep time.
I really appreciate the samplers from Tea Forte since they afford the chance to try and compare blends which is how I discovered this one. Immediately it delivers a fresh, cool, and earthy flavor with a mere hint of sweetness that perfectly balances on the palate. This is great when further enhanced with one of the specialty honey from Tea Forte as well, and it pairs perfectly with lemon scones and a delightful lemon biscotti I recently discovered but for a sheer breath of fresh-tasting tea when you need a break, this one is ideal and never grows old. Coming from a black-tea-only person, this is saying something. I highly recommend trying this one for a delightful change of pace.
