I never intended to review any of the herbal fruit teas that I received from Buddha’s Herbs because, to be honest, I’m not really into fruit flavored teas. However, upon tasting Mint & Citrus Fruit Tea by Buddha’s Herbs I immediately fell in love. I can honestly say that it is my favorite fruit tea by this generous tea company!

A golden yellow hue permeates the water when brewing Mint & Citrus Fruit Tea. I would also describe it as a cross of the colors orange and yellow. It is a very subdued color, concentrated but not bright. One could note Mint & Citrus Fruit Tea by Buddha’s Herbs as having a muted yellow or even a muted orange hue.
A concoction of licorice, lemongrass and lime pervade the first whiff. The delicate notes of mint end the scent. Spearmint (my favorite!) as well as peppermint lend a refreshing note to the scent without overwhelming the fragrance.
Although the tea has quite a few floral ingredients, one wouldn’t know by the scent. Rose hips and hibiscus buds may, however, lend to the smooth and gentle scent of Mint & Citrus Fruit Tea.

Without 2 teaspoons of honey, Mint & Citrus Fruit Tea has a very citrus effect. The tea is very lemon-y without a sour consequence. The lemon note is accentuated by the taste of mint and the sip ends with a pleasant clean fruit aroma likened to orange.
When I added 2 teaspoons of honey, the citrus notes remained dominant. The mint tussled with the licorice, which was a pleasant experience. The sugars in the honey accentuated the lemongrass notes and the sip concluded with mint notes instead of orange notes that ended the tea taste without honey.

Mint & Citrus Fruit Tea makes me bright and happy! It may be the only thing that I have to hold onto Summer 2016. I never thought I could love a fruit tea as much as I love this fruit tea. You can even tell that it isn’t flavored with essential oils because there isn’t a film sitting on top of the tea after the steep. It really is a great tea!
