This is one of the best herbal teas I’ve ever tasted. It has a strong sweet/floral taste and aroma and a very soothing effect. I drink it every night and so do my parents – who are not even that much into tea. This organic herbal blend is also the most “low-maintenance” tea I’ve got: no need to worry about water temperature (just let it boil), caffeine content, or added preservatives. Definitely recommend it.

Flavors: Flowers, Honey

Hmm, I’ve never had a lavender earl grey before and I’m not sure I really like it. The taste and smell of the lavender is super strong when I brewed it. I’m going to try it as an iced tea next. In it’s little sachet it seems like it’d be nice to keep a bag around to scent my room… :)

If you’re curious about lavender earl grey’s you should try the one that Alice’s Teacup sells! It’s well balanced and uses a good grade of black tea.Though I’m not sure if they sell online; they’re a tea shop in NYC. Alternatively, Guurl Grey from T-We is a good floral/burgamont blend.

Went through the entire tins of this and by the end I was kind of over it. I think that for true black tea drinkers this is a really nice variation from the classic OPs, Darjeelings, and Ceylons but for me the actual tea base of it got a little too astringent. The rose and vanilla blended beautifully, however, and even if it didn’t taste the best to my pallet it has an awesome aroma. Goes great with some basic short bread, though I advise a little bit of cream or milk as it has a fairly dry nose.

Oh. My. GOODNESS~ I am so excited I found this tea, and this company. I picked this tea and another blend (Vanilla Rose Ceylon) up on a whim at a book store in Boston this past weekend. I wasn’t sure what to expect, but now that I’ve made a cup I have no regrets.

This tea is probably the most fragrant and most soothing herbal blend I have ever experienced. I was having terrible cramps and headaches and this healed me up right away. It’s wonderfully floral in taste and has a smooth citrus body. The smell is incredibly soothing on it’s own. Like lemon and lavender. It’s very aromatic, but it doesn’t have that horrible perfume taste like you would expect it to.

The whole blend is also organic. Most of the herbs used are grown in the USA. The tin and bags they are in are also made of recycled material. Sustainable tea!

The tin is also super cute. That was what caught me initially, and I’m so glad I stuck with the choice.
