Why I would drink a cup of heavily caffeinated, super perfume-y Earl Grey at 10pm is a mystery. Perhaps it was because I spent the afternoon with a friend in her garden that has some new lavender growing. Perhaps it was because I’m obviously nuts to drink something like this late at night. I really don’t know.
That said, this is delicious. Some reviewers have mentioned it reminds them of drinking perfume. Ok. I get that. The lavender and bergamot both come on like gang-busters.
I cook with lavender (Herbes de Provence) on a regular basis. I like lavender in my food. If you don’t, seriously, don’t drink this.
This tea is meant to be drunk in the garden. It would likely be lovely with a splash of cream, if you’re into that kind of thing.
If you want a full throttle Earl Grey that isn’t shy on the lavender, this is it. This is another one I could bathe in. For now, I’ll stick to drinking it. Yum.
