I was a little worried about this tea becuase it smelled so strongly of lavender. I do not like lavender at all. The smell for some reason makes me nauseous. I can usually drink/eat something with lavender as long as the lavender is not too strong.

I figured I had to give the tea a try anyway.

Brewed the tea smells of sweet lavender. Less strong as the dry tea.

The tea tastes sweet. The lavender is definitely the prominent taste.

I couldn’t really finish the cup of this one. Its not a bad tea. I think it is actually a good blend. But I just can’t get over my dislike of lavender.

Bio

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
