These mints are sweetened with xylitol and sorbitol (both extracted from fruit fiber) and packed in recyclable tins.
Small as they are, conventional mints can hide a surprising variety of icky stuff, from artificial flavors and sweeteners to animal-derived gelatin. By contrast, these mints from Tea Forté conceal a wealth of good things — like concentrated green tea and herbs and spices like maté, cinnamon and chamomile. Choose from flavors like Lemongrass Yuzu and Matcha Chai. $3 at natural markets and www.teaforte.com.
