Last tea of the night.
When I made my Christmas treat bags for coworkers, I included a cup worth of this tea in each bag – this is the first time I’m trying it myself though. Most of today was sipdowns, and I wanted to finish the night with something new. Plus, a floral white is probably a good thing for relaxing late at night.
To be perfectly honest, I dislike lavender quite a bit. It often just tastes so soapy to me. However, I really have a love for floral whites in general; Jasmine Silver Needle and DT’s Elderflower blend with peony in it both spring to mind. Something about the delicate profile of a white tea and the therapeutic nature of floral flavours goes hand in hand for me. And while this could have been a real miss for me, I’m finding it more soft, silky, and pleasant than I’d thought I would. The lavender is light and kept from tasting too one-tone thanks to the vanilla which really, really makes the tea.
Honestly, it’ls like drinking a lullaby! I feel sleepy, and relaxed and this is just gentle enough to ease me out of the day while having a strong enough flavour to not taste bland. I’m sure in the future, depending on the mood I’m in, I may change my mind about this tea because lavender and I still aren’t super chummy; but right now it’s perfect.
