I wanted a black tea this morning that wasn’t Earl Grey or chocolate, and I didn’t feel like rose, which limited my options, so I decided to try this lavender tea again. It’s amazing how much the aroma of the dried leaves and the fresh brewed tea is powerfully lavender. The brewed tea is much more mellow as far as that’s concerned. I do think I like lavender in teas cut with other things (lavender and jasmine is a winning combo), but this one is pleasant too. It’s just more herby than most other florals, so it’s a different taste profile.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
