Cucumber Mint

Product Details

What! You forgot the cucumber sandwiches?


Cucumber? In a tea? It might not be the first combination which springs to mind, but the results are really rather delicious. We’ve blended refreshing peppermint leaves, sweet apple and pretty blue cornflower petals, adding juicy cucumber for an eye-bright finish. It’s perfect for hydrating in the summer heat.

The Great Taste Awards have been described as the Oscars of the food world—so you can imagine we were pretty chuffed when our Cucumber Mint won a gold star at this year’s awards. The judges described it as “lively in the mouth”, and recommended drinking it “with fresh sliced cucumber, or just the peel, and a sprig of mint.”

Brew the perfect cup

Add one teaspoon (around 2g) of loose leaf tea per cup and use freshly drawn water heated to around 80 degrees.

Best enjoyed without milk.

* * * * * This tea is stunning by Natrska on 10th June 2018

Don't hesitate - simply buy this tea. It's divine and you will not be disappointed. I wanted a peppermint tea with a twist, and this is so much more. Fragrant and refreshing!

Honestly I was nervous to try this, as most drinks I think will be incredible end up a disappointment. This tea however was just incredible and I’ll definitely buy it again.

* * * * * My favorite tea by Matthew Pattillo on 18th October 2017

It's my number one choice in Tea. I live in California and always order my tea from whittard. It's worth the long shipping time!

Ever since our founder Walter Whittard weighed out tea leaves behind his high mahogany counter, we’ve been experimenting with our own inventive blends. The Chinese were the first to try blending tea leaves with fruits and flowers and it takes time, skill and imagination to master the art. It’s all about creating the perfect balance of flavours: we blind taste at least 20 different variations before settling on the perfect recipe. Just as some musicians have perfect pitch, an expert tea blender needs to have some pretty perceptive tastebuds…
