Sencha Naturals Green Tea Mints in Delicate Pear, Original and Lively Lemongrass flavors

Tea is known to have many health benefits, from combating heart disease and lowering cholesterol to staving off several types of cancer. Less known is its ability to suppress the root causes of bad breath. David Kerdoon, founder of Sencha Naturals Green Tea Mints, has figured out how to give people the benefits of a fresh mouth via the help of tea without involving any brewing or mug-holding.

His Sencha (a popular Japanese green tea) mints come in three different flavors: Delicate Pear, Lively Lemongrass, Morning Lychee and Original. They are made with organic tea extract and other natural ingredients like sweet fennel, pear extract, fresh ginger root and tea tree oil. Don’t expect the strong minty burst of the usual breath fresheners—the flavor comes in waves of subtle sweetness in the Delicate Pear and pleasant hints of tartness in the Lively Lemongrass. Three loose-leaf mints is the equivalent to drinking one cup of green tea. And when they say loose leaf, they mean it. Each mint is shaped like a leaf, with lines etched into each one—a tiny detail sure to make any tea aficionado smile.
