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.

Steeping instructions

    Love this tea!

    This is my all-time favorite tea! It is a wonderful way to calm me at the end of a day. But lately, it is constantly out of stock! Please address this problem Tea Forte! I need my Belgian Mint fix!

    Chocolate and mint, what's not to love?

    Chocolate mint tea? I like mint in my cocoa and my mochas but in tea? A pen pal sent me a bag of a competitor's chocolate mint tea, and I brewed it not knowing what it was. I loved it. Have been looking for something like it but none of my local grocery suppliers had any such thing. Then a friend sent me a Single Steeps sampler along with a Kati cup, and I liked the cup and the teas so much I had to place an order! When I discovered the Belgian Mint, it went directly into my cart. This is my favorite after-dinner tea.

    We love Tea Forte's teas! We have a full collection of about 5 or 6 of these canisters and we're always trying new collections. Belgian Mint is definitely a favorite!

    The Aromatic Smell of European Decadent Chocolate Blended with Mint

    I love this tea, it's such a great combination of rich chocolate and sweetness of mint. Like a peppermint patty, with all the richness but with out the calories!
