The mint and lemon w a bit of honey added is perfect for my head cold. Got to my office with all the usually symptoms; picked the citrus mint out of my herbal sampler for the mint. This blend is not something I would normally be drawn to but it sure hit the spot. I highly recommend it for medicinal purposes!
To much on the lemon side than I expected
This is a very soothing and refreshing tea.
I have tried probably 20 or more of Tea Forte's teas. This is one of my top three favorites, along with ambrosia white tea and chamomile citrus tea. Smells and tastes great.
Citrus Mint is the first tea from Tea Forte that I tried and I instantly loved it. It is a beautiful blend of flavors that I just adore. I enjoy it hot and iced.
This tea is my absolute favorite. I cannot put a reason too it though, it has got to be the combination of the peppermint and the lemon peels. This is not an overwhelming type of mint tea like most. The mint flavor is on a subtle side but it makes it quite enjoyable anytime. I drink at least a cup a day!
The peppermint flavor is colored only slightly by a tinge of lemon. A very simple, yet satisfying, mint tea.
Hey, even a guy needs to cut down on the caffienne, but I don't want a cup of perfume either. Citrus mint has a bold mint flavor with all the quality of the other Tea Forte teas, but without the flower garden notes my wife likes in her tea. Thank you to the GUYS at Tea Forte.
You'd think that mint would just be mint, right? Why would one peppermint tea be substantially better than another? I don't know, but this one is, and I've always liked peppermint tea. This one is something special. Maybe it's just the lemon zest in there with it or maybe they've got a fairy on staff with a little wand. All I know is it's delicious.
"Cool, brilliant peppermint is complemented by sunny citrus zest. A perfectly refreshing cup that warms the body and soothes the soul. Naturally Caffeine-Free and Kosher." <p>Read the full detailed review at: <a href="http://www.teareviewblog.com/?p=5360" target="_blank">www.teareviewblog.com</a>
I first saw this tea at a favorite restraunt of mine and then had to order some for every occasions for friends and family. Delicous and everyone remarks on the pyramid bag shape.
This is one of my favorite teas from Tea Forte. I love the simple combination of real mint leaves and bits of lemon zest. It tastes great both hot and cold.
