I’m really not a fan of this one. For some reason, the taste and smell once it is steeped reminds me of olives. I can’t get past that.

A little rustic glamour
The scent of lavender never fails to evoke the south of France, with its fabulous mix of tiny villages and celebrity-filled beaches and yachts. So imagine yourself in Aix or St-Tropez, leisurely sipping on this smooth blend of rooibos, rosehip, black currants, rose leaves, lavender, raisins, red currants, rose petals and dried blueberries. It’s filled with sophistication and antioxidants.

The first thing you notice is that this herbal tea smells amazing; once steeped, it stays very tasty and relaxing. The rooibos – and lack of coconut – make it less sweet than Jessie’s Tea, another lavender tea from DAVIDs, and definitely floral. It took me a while to taste the berries, but it’s hard to ignore the fruity aftertaste once you start noticing it.
Like all my rooibos, I love it very hot, and steeped a long time – to me, as soon as it get a little lukewarm it loses a lot of the flavours, leaving only the sweet rooibos (which isn’t bad in itself, but definitely a little bland). It’s one of my favorite teas to drink at night; I let it steep in my room while I shower, and as a small bonus, the entire room smells heavenly for the whole night.
