Picture sitting atop a clifftop villa on the Amalfi coast, sampling sorbetti, gelati, cannoli and other citrusy desserts as the boundless sun-drenched sea sparkles beneath you. Take that moment, condense every last drop into a cup of the finest lemon green tea, and you have Lemon Sorbetti, a true treasure from Tea Forte.
Based on Italy’s most celebrated sorbet, this hand-plucked, organic lemon green tea is blended with a host of lemon-based ingredients such as lemon peel, lemon myrtle, Thai lemongrass and Paraguayan lemon verbena, giving it a crisp, citrus tang that will invigorate you any time of day.
Many of these ingredients also offer health benefits to the drinker. The lemon green tea contains ECGC, one of nature’s most potent antioxidants, while lemon verbena is believed to help soothe the digestive system. Meanwhile, lemon myrtle may relieve cramps, headaches, spasms and fevers, reduce cellulite, and strengthen the immune system. This dessert tea boasts irresistible flavors as well as numerous health benefits, so is it any wonder the Specialty Food Association voted it “Best Hot Beverage”?
The tea comes in a stylish, airtight container with approximately 50 servings of tea leaves inside. Steep for 2-4 minutes at 175 F. For iced teas, use 2 teaspoons per 8 ounce glass.
