More Info

The multi-step process of steaming and pan-firing before rolling to stop the oxidation process is what yields the numerous health benefits that growing research is finding in the drinking of a cup of green tea. Revered for its vegetal fresh flavor and distinct taste, Tea Forté works with its growers to produce green teas that are distinct in flavor and artisan processed to yield high concentrations of EGCG. Researchers have identified EGCG as the strongest polyphenol antioxidant, remarkable for preventing and halting cellular oxidative damage and other disease-fighting properties caused by harmful molecules in the body known as free radicals. Drinking a cup of green tea a few times a day will provide a rich source of antioxidants and other healthful plant compounds. Allow tea to steep for three to five minutes to bring out its healthful properties.

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser Absolutely love this tea

This tea has a very smooth delicate flavor. You can definitely taste the cucumber. One of my favorite in the green tea family.

infuser infuser infuser Interesting

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.

04/06/15 | Amanda, Austin, TX

infuser too complex and medicinal

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).

infuser infuser infuser infuser Minimal Cucumber Flavor

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.

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser Amazing

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.

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser Just Amazing!

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!)

infuser infuser infuser infuser infuser My new favorite!

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.
