About Belgian Mint Tea

Tea Type : Herbal Tea

Belgian Mint was blended to be savored alongside your favorite special dessert after a satisfying meal. It cleans and refreshes the palate with dark chocolate and bright peppermint flavors. Sweet enough to be dessert in its own right, but never cloying, we've found that Belgian Mint goes way beyond its intended purpose. It has become a favorite afternoon refreshment. A very rich and natural indulging herbal tea’ is the best way to describe Tea Forté Belgian Mint tea, where cacao bean and peppermint leaves meet. Both the cacao bean and cacao husk impart a rich, all natural chocolate flavor to the Peppermint infusion.

Our tea is made from the husks of cacao seeds that are leftover from the chocolate making process. These husks contain a hint of the chocolate flavors once inside, but do not retain measurable quantities of caffeine or the other bitter flavors of pure cacao. Cacao beans where so valued in pre-Columbian Mesoamerican civilizations that they were actually used as currency. Cacao "beans" are the pod-like fruit of the cacao or cocoa tree Theobroma cacao. Native to South and Central America, this tree has been domesticated for many centuries. Each bean weighs about a pound, and produces a few hundred seeds. Each cacao tree only produces about 20 beans a year. The seeds are crushed and processed into cocoa paste and cocoa butter, both of which are used to make chocolate and cocoa.

The peppermint’s fresh, invigorating character cleanses the palate and is a wonderful after-dinner digestive. In addition, peppermint is thought to improve sleep and the menthol in peppermint is a natural decongestant explaining why mint teas are so wonderful when you have a cold.

Any sweet foods will enhance the flavors of Belgian Mint. We've also found that it is terrific sweetened with a touch of agave nectar or sugar.

    Good, but..

    I ordered this hoping for a really strongly chocolatey tea, and while this is quite nice, in my opinion it's not strongly chocolate with the mint.

    This is an easy way to energize mid afternoon tea. Even on a warm day I love to brew a cup of this tea in the late afternoon.

    My “go to” favorite tea.

    A smooth mint tea with just a touch of chocolate. When I can’t choose which tea I want I always fall back to this Belgian Mint.

    So Relaxing

    This is my go-to before bed tea. It’s a perfect blend of chocolate and mint without either one becoming overpowering.

    fine harmony

    The combination of mint and chocolate is just perfect - it makes this tea a perfect dessert tea. I usually have one cup in the evening. The mint tastes like Moroccan mint with a bit of refreshing zest, however, it is in no way overpowering. The chocolate notes a subtle.
