This is a really soothing tea an is great if you serve it iced. just add fresh lemon juice and you're in for a refreshing treat. I will say that this isn't my favorite tea mainly because I am not a fan of cucumber.
I enjoy almost all herbal and "real" teas, but I found this one to be undrinkable. I believe it was because there were so many different--and conflicting--ingredients: green tea, spearmint, basil, marigold, blueberry, and cucumber. Whew. It was like something I might try blending--once. On the other hand, the Cherry Marzipan I like fine (although the water should be much less than boiling for all these teas).
At least in the batch I received, this blend would be better described as a Basil Mint tea. The strong basil and mint flavors are accompanied by a slight taste of blueberries, and only perhaps the lightest touch of cucumber. Still an interesting tea, but not quite what I expected.
I was really interested when I saw the "skin-smart" selection of tea on Tea Forte's website. After reading the reviews on all the Skin-Smart tea, I decided to try out Cucumber Mint. Like other reviewers, I wasn't sure how I felt about the combination of mint & cucumber... but wow, am I glad I listened to the 5 star rating! My husband and I made some last night and it was out of this world. Such a light.. delicious blend of flavors. It is now one of our favorites and I will definitely purchase this again when we are out.
I brew this tea and drink it iced, unsweetened (normally I prefer sweet iced tea) and it is perfect! So refreshing. All of the flavors are there.
I didn't know tea could be so good! I have been a tea freak a long time and never thought that I would absolutely treasure one company over the next, but Tea Forte has blown my mind! Cucumber Mint didn't sound very good to me (cucumbers in salads, yes, but tea?), but when I read the reviews and tried it; I couldn't believe how Delicious it was. It is so refreshing, soothing, you name it! Hot, cold, or in between, this tea rates high on my list of bests in the world. (no fooling!)
I tried the sample today and oh my I love this tea. It's refreshing, not overpowering and heavenly. I can not wait to try more flavors Tea forte. Thank you for my sample and introducing me to a whole new world of teas
I just tried this tea for the 1st time this morning and it is my NEW favorite tea!! I didn't think the cucumber seemed like a good idea for tea...but the combination of the cucumber and mint is genius! So light and refreshing! It's a different tasting tea, but sooo yummy! I can't get enough!
Just tried my sample of this and it is probably the best tea I have ever tasted. I added a drop of peppermint extract and sweetened it with raw honey and it was so good!! I was sad when it was gone :) I will definitely be buying!!
Just got this tea today, and so far it seems to be a pretty decent tasting cup of tea. I've only had a single cup so far, but i'll definitely be making another cup soon.
Along with Cherry Marzipan, these are my 2 new favorite Tea Forte teas! Really tasty and light, I easily drink several cups a day of these.
