Did You Know?

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!

Tea Type:  organic herbal tea

Tea Forté 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.

The organic lemon peels are full of nutrition, among which vitamin C, believed to help build the immune system.

Very refreshing

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser Perfect tea for a cold

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!

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.

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser My Go To Tea!!

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.

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser Good tea without the girly smell!

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.

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser Isn't mint just mint? No!

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.
