Some may not consider this a tea since it’s foundation is mint, however I believe if you can brew it, then it can be used as a tea. Mint is used to combat an upset stomach as well as sweeten the breath. The Verbena is a small flower used to add a bit of flavor to the mint. This tea is an herbal, it had more of a mint and slightly bitter taste, however sweetened made the real balance of this tea come out. The central part of my tongue came alive when tasting this tea.
Hot Tea / Iced Tea Taste Facts: Excellent hot with a very full flavor. You can add sweetener, I prefer honey and this really mellows the taste down a bit. Iced works well but dilutes the flavor quite a bit.
