"I have been using this tea for a while. All I can say that this is one of the best herbs I have ever tasted. I sleep better if I drink it right before going to bed. I just find it very relaxing and calming. I like this particular brand and of course Vitacost's reasonable price."
"This box of tea contains a nice amount of bags for the price, and what's even better, the quality of the product is very satisfactory.
You can have a cup of hot spearmint tea with a touch of honey, or plain, and it is not weak or watery. It is not adulterated. Further, I love to make sun tea, and throwing in two bags of this with a half gallon jug and my basic tea for sun tea (oolong) renders a batch that is just right, filled with wonderful mint overtones, and energy from the sun! Love this product, good price, great quality. I hope it stays that way."
"i love spearmint - it used to grow behind a building on the farm where I grew up. I have had trouble finding spearmint tea, except in the health food stores where it is expensive. I love this tea anytime, but especially in the summer. I simmer a pot and put it in the fridge. Add a bit of stevia and some ice and it is so delicious! My husband and visitors often like it without sweetener at all."
"I first tried spearmint tea in Europe last year, and was amazed that I'd never seen it in US stores, because it was so good! After looking for it when I got home, I finally keyed in to the fact that it was availible online. This brand is very flavorful, and at 30 bags to the box, is a great value, too. I am really enjoying Alvita's Spearmint Tea, and the ease of the transaction plus the quick delivery ensure that I will be placing another order soon, as I am almost done with my first box already! Enjoy, everyone!"
"This is the best tasting spearmint I've tried. Well worth a few cents more. I make green tea by the pitcher and just one of these spearmint tea bags cuts the bitter taste and transforms it into a refreshing drink! Highly recommend, especially if peppermint isn't your thing."
