Leaf Type: Green
Where to Buy: Tea Forté
Special reserve green tea with invigorating cool notes of cucumber, fresh mint and the taste of sweet blueberries.
We (the SororiTea Sisters!) have been sampling some of the newest teas from Tea Forté as part of their new Skin-Smart line. And so far, I’ve been liking what I’ve been tasting!
This Cucumber Mint green tea tastes very fresh and exhilarating (thanks to the mint), and yet quite soothing (thanks to the cucumber). The green tea base is light and has a somewhat grassy taste that seems to enhance the flavor of the cucumber. I have tasted a few cucumber flavored teas now (not a lot, but a few), and I think that this is one that I find to be very true to the flavor of cucumber. It doesn’t seem muddled by the other flavors in the cup, the cucumber really shines through.
The mint has a crisp, clean taste and doesn’t overwhelm the cup – mint can sometimes be a selfish herb and take over the whole composition of the cup. But that doesn’t happen here. The mint is an accent flavor, and it does its job right.
As for the blueberries, I don’t get a lot of berry flavor here. There is a hint of berry sweetness as well as a distinctive tangy taste toward the tail of the sip which can be more discerned in the aftertaste than during the sip.
I like the focus of this Skin Smart line; I like that Tea Forté recognizes that beautiful skin starts from the inside! Click here for more information about the Skin Smart line from Tea Forté. And I especially like that this tea not only promotes a healthy complexion but is also quite tasty.
Here’s to good skin health!
