Does it matter whether your tea is 100% organic?
Flavor and Taste
Now onto what you’ve been waiting for “How does the tea taste?” The Camomile with Mint and Lemon is comprised of Organic: Camomile, Peppermint, Spearmint, and Lemon Myrtle. This tea provides a nice light flavor. Upon first tasting it, the refreshing taste of mint (along with the pleasant aroma) awakens the senses. The flavoring of the Lemon Myrtle finds its way to the forefront once the Camomile and Mint dissipates. Adding a touch of honey as a sweetener makes this the perfect summer afternoon beverage to relax to.
