I received this tea as a sample in my recent DAVIDsTea order. I never jumped on it at the store, as after smelling it, it wasn’t "wow"ing me and I voted to get more interesting teas on those shopping trips.

This is my first time drinking lavender.. I’ve had it in cookies and my oil diffuser, but not in my tea. This cup I can really taste the lavender (flavour wise… not the minty sharp like a lavender oil) and the coconut smooths it out. I’d say it is a mellow, relaxing, smooth tea. The rooibos isn’t noticed much (which I don’t mind).

In the end… it was nice to get a sample. It’s not bad, but I don’t think it’s my kind of tea, nor did it “wow” me. It’s different, but I won’t go and buy more of it.

Bio

I’m a tea blogger – The Oolong Owl
www.OolongOwl.com – I do tea reviews, obsessively photograph teas with mischievous crocheted Owls and get tea drunk. I am also a crochet / knitting designer at Awkward Soul Designs.

I was raised on floral oolongs and green teas, mostly “beauty” teas. Early on as a kid, I can guzzle an entire pot of tea (or two) at a Chinese or Japanese restaurant.
These days I like adventurous and interesting tea blends. I’m fearless in trying new teas! I’m into oolong, pu’erh, white, green, black, guayusa, mate and herbals. I’m not into red rooibos but I keep buying it anyway.

The tea brand that got me started into loose leaf teas was DAVIDsTea. I used to live in Vancouver Canada and had access to their shop, however that is now limited since I moved to southern California.

However, the perks of living in the US is ultra cheap, fast shipping! Since then, my tea stash insanely expanded.
My recommended tea shops:
Mandala Tea
White 2 Tea
Steep City Teas
DAVIDsTea
Lupicia
Verdant Tea
Yunnan Sourcing
52 Teas / Zoomdweebies
Yunomi.us
Red Leaf Tea
New Mexico Tea Co
Bluebird Tea Co
The Persimmon Tree

Other stuff I’m into that sneaks into my tea notes: Brazilian jiu-jitsu, metal music, drawing, painting, cooking, photography and nail polish.

BTW, my Steepster cupboard is not even close to accurate and I track my teas on a spreadsheet. Last update 512 Teas May 2015.
