Another winning combination of flavors that blend so well and are not overpowering. My go-to tea for relaxation!
A new favorite. Wonderful anytime.
Best tea I ever drank.
Fresh tasting and refreshing. Good morning tea with the refreshing cucumber and light blueberry flavor.
When you smell this tea seems to dominate. However, when brewed, the cucumber and mint compliment each other deliciously!
It's a very light, but flavorful green tea with subtle mint. The cucumber and blueberries aren't as strong for me, but it's not an issue. Great hot or cold - I wind up drinking it both ways if I make a small pot of tea, and it's a great way to stay hydrated in the winter. If I'm craving more blueberry flavor, I mix it with an herbal blueberry tea I like (which turns the tea a nice shade of rose).
This is a wonderful green tea. Very nice flavor and all the benefits of green tea. We have reordered over and over again.
While I enjoy many of the Teas in the skin-smart collection Cucumber Mint is by far my favorite. I have ordered it several times and it has become the one I reach for in the afternoon.
Cucumber mint is so relaxing and soothing, I like to have it when I'm reading in the evening. It's one of my absolute favorites.
I have tried a lot of green teas and this one is by far my favorite. It has a clean, refreshing taste and I enjoy making it in the morning and am always able to get a good second steep from it. Excellent tea!
Love the flavor
great breakfast tea
A great pick me up
Refreshing! Will be a summer iced favorite!
Although I enjoyed this tea the flavors were a little to subtle to me.
This tea blend works perfectly hot or cold. I've found that drinking the tea daily throughout the winters here in Chicago keep the dry skin itch away. I would highly recommend this tea, as it flavor is amazingly refreshing.
Favorite with the neighbors!
This tea was delicious. The aroma and taste very soothing. I highly recommend it.
Great hot or cold
Most refreshing tea ever.
This is an exceptionally great tea!
Refreshing cup of tea
This was a delicious cup of tea! I will be ordering more.
I have cystic acne and my flare ups have almost completely disappeared!
A light mint flavor.
I've been looking to incorporate more green tea so I purchased this recently for 1st time. I love the cucumber taste, mint & blueberries are less prominent. Gave 4 stars because I wish e flavor was more intense!
So refreshing! I love this tea in the afternoon for a quick, mid-day boost!
I love this tea- mild- nice subtle flavor of the cucumber and mint- very refreshing Like it iced too!
A lovely tea. Very aromatic and smooth to drink.
I was torn on ordering this flavor. But I am so glad I did! I brew it and then drink it iced. The flavor isn't overwhelming. It's a perfect balance of mint & cucumber.
Delicious and refreshing, I love this tea!
A perfect combo of refreshing and energizing. Neither the cucumber nor the green tea has an overpowering taste. A perfect balance of favors. My go-to green tea.
I'm not the biggest fan of Cucumbers and I hate blueberries so I was shocked at home amazing this tea tastes (doesn't taste like cucumbers or blueberries). Smooth with a hint of sweet.
This tea not only brings my love of cucumbers and mint together...buts its a perfect blend and doesn't leave your mouth with the dry feeling. I want to steep it in a bath and soak in it!
I like the benefits of green tea but have never liked the taste. I got a single steep sampler of various teas and found this green tea to be perfect so I bought the canister.
I got this in the Skin Smart sampler and it's one of my favorites!! The flavors are delicious and go perfectly with each other. I have at least one cup of this every day and may have to buy a new canister soon.
This is a really good tea, I had my doubts, but it tastes very minty and delicious!
I got the Skin Smart sampler and this one was my favorite from the collection. I love the clean flavor, with the after taste of cucumber then blueberry. Nice refreshing clean tea for the warner months. Need to try it iced, bet that would be great as well.
This tea has a very smooth delicate flavor. You can definitely taste the cucumber. One of my favorite in the green tea family.
This is a really soothing tea an is great if you serve it iced. just add fresh lemon juice and you're in for a refreshing treat. I will say that this isn't my favorite tea mainly because I am not a fan of cucumber.
I enjoy almost all herbal and "real" teas, but I found this one to be undrinkable. I believe it was because there were so many different--and conflicting--ingredients: green tea, spearmint, basil, marigold, blueberry, and cucumber. Whew. It was like something I might try blending--once. On the other hand, the Cherry Marzipan I like fine (although the water should be much less than boiling for all these teas).
At least in the batch I received, this blend would be better described as a Basil Mint tea. The strong basil and mint flavors are accompanied by a slight taste of blueberries, and only perhaps the lightest touch of cucumber. Still an interesting tea, but not quite what I expected.
I was really interested when I saw the "skin-smart" selection of tea on Tea Forte's website. After reading the reviews on all the Skin-Smart tea, I decided to try out Cucumber Mint. Like other reviewers, I wasn't sure how I felt about the combination of mint & cucumber... but wow, am I glad I listened to the 5 star rating! My husband and I made some last night and it was out of this world. Such a light.. delicious blend of flavors. It is now one of our favorites and I will definitely purchase this again when we are out.
I brew this tea and drink it iced, unsweetened (normally I prefer sweet iced tea) and it is perfect! So refreshing. All of the flavors are there.
I didn't know tea could be so good! I have been a tea freak a long time and never thought that I would absolutely treasure one company over the next, but Tea Forte has blown my mind! Cucumber Mint didn't sound very good to me (cucumbers in salads, yes, but tea?), but when I read the reviews and tried it; I couldn't believe how Delicious it was. It is so refreshing, soothing, you name it! Hot, cold, or in between, this tea rates high on my list of bests in the world. (no fooling!)
I tried the sample today and oh my I love this tea. It's refreshing, not overpowering and heavenly. I can not wait to try more flavors Tea forte. Thank you for my sample and introducing me to a whole new world of teas
I just tried this tea for the 1st time this morning and it is my NEW favorite tea!! I didn't think the cucumber seemed like a good idea for tea...but the combination of the cucumber and mint is genius! So light and refreshing! It's a different tasting tea, but sooo yummy! I can't get enough!
Just tried my sample of this and it is probably the best tea I have ever tasted. I added a drop of peppermint extract and sweetened it with raw honey and it was so good!! I was sad when it was gone :) I will definitely be buying!!
Just got this tea today, and so far it seems to be a pretty decent tasting cup of tea. I've only had a single cup so far, but i'll definitely be making another cup soon.
Along with Cherry Marzipan, these are my 2 new favorite Tea Forte teas! Really tasty and light, I easily drink several cups a day of these.
