Everything violet flavored just makes me wish I could live in France already.
I think I prefer Violette to Kusmi’s Violet. It seemed to only taste right when I prepared it a certain way. This one smells so much stronger, which I was worried about at first. As it steeped, the aroma carried over to me and it was just SO GOOD.
So of course actually drinking the tea was amazing too. It’s far more floral, but not like soap at all. It’s sweet and smooth.
There needs to be more violet flavored things around here. I think there is a gelato shop here that does flower flavors, they must have one. I just have no idea when it’s ever open! And of course one of my favorite cocktails is the Aviation with creme de violette.
Thank you for sharing this with me, Ellyn!
