About Citrus Mint

Tea Type : Herbal Tea

>Tea Forté's Citrus mint combines the citrus oil from lemon peel and the brisk, refreshing characteristics from organic peppermint into a surprisingly soothing blend. The brisk, refreshing organic peppermint cleanses the palate, whilst the organic lemon peel from Spain adds a light citrusy note to the infusion. One of our most popular herbal blends, Citrus Mint is one of our most versatile infusions. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. With food or solo. Sweetened or unsweetened. Citrus Mint is always up to the task at hand.

Peppermint is believed to better your sleep and the menthol it contains is thought to be a natural decongestant, explaining why herbal teas containing organic mint are so soothing when you are down with a cold or flu. Peppermint is actually a naturally occurring hybrid of spearmint and water mint. As a hybrid, peppermint is sterile, producing no seeds. However, peppermint does spread very rapidly through its rhizomes, which are roots that can produce new plant shoots. If you plant peppermint in your garden, it is usually best to keep it contained in a pot, because it can take over!

The organic lemon peels are full of nutrition, among which vitamin C, believed to help build the immune system.

Our most popular herbal blend, Citrus Mint is one of our most versatile infusions. Breakfast, lunch or dinner. With food or solo. Sweetened or unsweetened. Citrus Mint is always up to the task at hand.

Citrus Mint pairs beautifully with a wide variety of foods. Highlight the citrus flavor by pairing with lemony foods like chicken piccata or a citrus vinaigrette salad. Perhaps even better, bring out the mint with Middle Eastern foods like hummus, tabbouleh or falafel.

    Light and refreshing

    Awesome after a meal or when you need something light and zingy. It's not overly powerful as far as the citrus, but definitely cleanses the palette and has a calming effect.

    Minty fresh

    Perfect amount of peppermint for an after dinner treat. It’s also perfect for warming up after being out in the cold. I drink this tea daily!

    FANTASTIC TEA

    Since I'm an avid fan of Tea Forte's Belgium Mint, I decided to give the Citrus Mint a try. I'm glad I did. For me personally, Citrus Mint strikes to excellent balance between Citrus flavor & Peppermint. While this is an excellent after Dinner Tea to help with digestion, I actually enjoy drinking this tea throughout the day. As a Herbal Tea, I particularly like the fact that there's no caffeine.

    Fresh drink

    This is a fresh tasting pleasant infusion and a really nice combination. Perfect in the evening or anytime. It will be excellent as an iced tea, too.

    Best mint tea ever

    I love mint tea, and have tried probably 30 different brands, this is my absolute favorite. The citrus adds a complexity that is enjoyable, and tones down the overly bright notes mint teas skmetimes have. I now order these half dozen at a time to get a discount. Wish this came by the pound!
