I’m a big fan of both the Bigelow Lemon Lift and the Bigelow Plantation Mint teas. Does anyone have a comparable loose leaf suggestion?
I use loose tea from the Indian grocery mixed with fresh-squeezed lemon juice. Wagh Bakri brand, Brooke Bond brand or similar. Fresh lemon is important, as opposed to the reconstituted stuff, which always has an off flavor. These aren't gourmet teas, but still enjoyable.
Thanks guys, I’ll have to give fresh lemon and peppermint leaves a try! Just in time to get some in the garden this springI actually buy dried peppermint leaf and add it to to lose leaf tea. Typically, I like adding it to a good, malty Assam--typically one teaspoon of mint for each tablespoon of tea, but that varies with my whim.
Really, it works well with about any tea when I'm in the mood, even green teas and Earl Grey.
