I’m not a big herbal tea drinker, but I received this as a gift, and it’s quite lovely. To me, the smell and colour are more pleasant than the taste (although the taste is by no means bad). It smells and tastes quite strongly of lavender, if you hadn’t guessed already. The colour is a nice blue, although it isn’t particularly vibrant. Overall, it is a nice tea which I find suitable for when I’m reading before bed, but there are better tisanes out there.
