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.

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.

    Less Citrus than expected

    Mint flavor is great but the citrus is a bit too subdued.

    Good introduction to herbal tea.

    I do like this tea but it is a more common herbal tea. That is not a bad thing. I’m relatively new at exploring herbal teas so I’m looking for things that are more unique that what I find from mass market tea bags in boxes. This is certainly worth a try because the citrus flavor is uplifting.
