drank Citrus Lavender Sage by Teavana
536 tasting notes

I hung out with my mom today and were at the mall and without anything better to do we stopped in to Teavana. They were super nice today; so I decided to buy something. My mom was pretty awed by the things that she thought were “cute.” I got this tea and the Caribbean Calypso Mate. This tea is so pretty to look at and I will admit I primarily bought this to go with the melange one from Teavana to tone down the popcorn-ness that I hate. I also was able to pick up a SUPER cute teapot (16oz) at the Tai Pan store. I don’t know if anyone else has them, but they should go check. It only ended up costing me $2 after a coupon (originally $2.97). Bonus? One of my regular strainers fits in it perfectly!!!
I have to admit that I have not been keeping up with tasting notes and the like; so in the future I’m going to be more up to date.
I ate one of the pineapple pieces and it was super tasty! I’m not really understanding where the lavender in this is going. It is pretty light/non-existent in the dry leaf smell. Once steeped, the smell is slightly similar to the swiss vervaine melange. But it is only an undertone after the citrus fruityness. This is really nice! It is sweet, citrus, and lightly herb flavored. It is a pretty nice blend that I would suggest mostly as a mixer for other teas. It would be great to add bounce to simpler mint teas and rooibos.
edit I’ve had two cups of this now and I can’t tell if I’m just super tired anyways, or if this tea is making me tired. But either way, it is super relaxing!
