Green tea contains less than a quarter the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping green tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water just short of boiling. Then pour water over tea and steep for 1-3 minutes (if using a tea bag) or 2-4 minutes (if using full-leaf tea.)
Finest Formosan gunpowder green tea leaves and peppermint

This tea is mostly delicious, but I will say this: a little goes a long way! The mint is slightly overwhelming for me, so I like to mix a little of this tea with my favorite plain gunpowder green tea, and it is the perfect blend.

I love having mint tea especially when I have a stomach ache or after a heavy meal! No sugar is needed.

I have tried nearly every brand and form of mint tea out there, and have found none to be as delicious as this. I buy this tea in bulk and enjoy a cup several days each week. I love it!

This is by far the best Moroccan mint tea that I've tried. It's incredibly refreshing, especially in the middle of winter when I need a little pick-me-up.
Refreshing!! A Great Pick Me Up!

This tea is SO refreshing. It is a great Pick-me-up for a flagging day. I feel refreshed and ready to tackle the next thing after a cup or two.

I had a tin of this many years ago and really enjoyed it. Regret waiting so long to reorder--it's an exceptionally nice tea with an intoxicating aroma.

Best Green Tea with Peppermint
November 08, 2012
I have been drinking this tea for over 10 years, and it is by far, the best green tea with peppermint on the market. I place it in a special tea pitcher for full leaf tea and allow it to steep for 12 hours in the frig. Add ice and Stevia, and it becomes my "go to" drink everyday. Love it.
Warming and Refreshing
November 05, 2012
This is my go-to green tea. It's incredibly soothing and the mint makes it refreshing at the same time. Wonderful without any sweetner. Highly recommended!!
Smooth and versatile daily green
October 01, 2012
The mint is strong and smooth, but not overpowering. I also love the versatility of this green tea. It can be sipped on it's own, or mixed with various milks, soy milks, etc for decorating the original flavor. This tea never gets old, which is why it's one of my daily pots.
My favorite every morning tea for 12 years

The bad part is that it is so expensive and all the tea I have purchased from you, I have never gotten a free bag or a nice discount. All I get is free shipping! It'd be nice if you can thank your customers who have faithfully purchased a lot from you to receive a bag free. I love your tea and wish I receive a thank you gift from you.

I just bought this and am taking my third cup - love it! The mint seemed a little too strong at first, but upon the second steeping, it was just right... A great, subtle balance. Very refreshing. I have a feeling this would be great as an iced tea too.
Perfect Any Time
June 11, 2012
Out of all gunpowder mint teas I've tasted, Republic's is the smoothest with a perfect balance of tea to mint. Perfect any time.
June 04, 2012
I've been a fan of hot tea for a while now but just started my interest in loose leaf. This is my favorite because less particles fall through with the gunpowder and the taste is wonderful.

This is my first time trying this tea. It's now my favorite
My favorite iced tea
February 25, 2012
Delicious and refreshing both in the summer and winter. I make it iced in my Mr. Coffee Ice tea machine and bring it to work in a thermos.
Moroccan Mint Maine-iac
February 04, 2012
Smooth but bold gunpowder tea with that hint of mint. I sweeten it with about 2 teaspoons of honey, yum. I won't start my morning without it. This tea is great though any time of the day. I first enjoyed a moroccan mint tea in a Mediterranean restaurant in Northampton Mass. Since then I have had only one tea that matched the taste and it is yours. Excellent tea and it is practically the only tea I drink now. It is good cold too. Enjoy.
On a chilly winter night
February 03, 2012
Moroccan mint has been one of my favorite teas for many, many years. It's refreshing mint combined with the relaxing flavor of green tea always makes me feel so good. And on a chilly winter night, sitting by the fire with a good book and sipping tea--what could be better.

I drink green tea very often and never had this brew before, but now that I know how refreshing and good tasting it is, this is the only green tea that I want. Love it.

I just tried my first cup of this tea and I am in love with it! It is the perfect mint tea! The mint flavor is subtle, not overpowering. But at the same time it is a flavorful cup of tea. Some mint tea's are so strong, and other you can hardly taste the flavor. This is the best mint tea I've ever had. A little sprinkle of Stevia or sugar and it is the perfect after dinner or late evening tea. I highly recommend this if you are a fan of mint tea!
My favorite, hands-down!!
August 13, 2011
I've tasted many teas. This is without a doubt my absolute favorite tea. The peppermint flavor is so pure - not that I don't like peppermint mixed with spearmint or lemon herbs, but here, you can taste the pureness of it. And the gunpowder green is something I'd like to try on its own as well. Combined, they are perfect - hot or iced, with or without sweetener. My preference is to fix it hot with raw sugar. SO good, I am never without it.
Tea so very refreshing

This tea is so very refreshing and relaxing, especially after a wonderful dinner. Just sit back and savor the tea.
