I found this tea to be underwhelming considering what I’d heard about it. Cute story on how it was named, but I wasn’t impressed after trying it a few times with what I’d purchased.

Worth singing about
We’ll never forget the day Jessie Farrell came into our store looking for lavender tea. The red-headed country star was on a quest. She wanted something comforting, energizing and antioxidant-filled that she could drink all day long. Together, we came up with this pretty blend of lavender, rooibos, coconut and cornflowers. Try it. You’ll understand why she wrote a song about it.

I love coconut. I love lavender, and cornflowers and rooibus but I don’t love this tea?!?
And I WANT to but I can’t get over the smell, it reminds me of vomit.
My roommate agrees. David’s can do better I’m attributing the ‘off’ characteristics to sweetened coconut and ‘flavourings’ finding that with DT.
Well I am not going to sing about it, but its a pretty decent tasting tea I was actually surprised a bit. The lavender really sets it off, as most I was worried about this in my tea, but wow I would try another.
Dry this tea is full of color and fragrance it is not only pleasing to look at but to smell. The rooibos adds the contrast against the colorful bits of lavender and cornflower, which provide the amazing aroma. Steeping the tea will fill the air with a noticeable lavender smell that is far from overpowering.
The final brew is a reddish gold color and retains the lavender fragrance from the start, it is quite clear and amazingly there wasn’t many particles coming through my infuser, sometimes this can be an issue with the small pieces in a rooibos tea not just this specific tea. I actually enjoyed the taste of the tea, its not one I would find myself drinking on a regular basis but it certainly is a nice change between my black teas.
I turned to this for a cup of comfort tonight. It’s 2:22am and I haven’t slept in days. I’m spiraling downhill fast, and it isn’t pretty. I just need to get through to the morning of the 9th and I’ll be able to actually deal with this bull crap.
This is one of the only red rooibos blends I truly enjoy. I think the lavender cuts the woodiness. I taste more of a lavender/vanilla rather than lavender/coconut, but I like it.
I really hope I can finally get some sleep. I just barely survived a week of hell and I still can’t take the time I need to care for myself. Not until I’ve done everything I need to make sure the pony is looked after.
Spending my birthday on the ward again? Looks like it. Ugh.
Flavors: Lavender, Vanilla, Wood
This is one of the best teas I’ve ever had. The lavender and coconut go together perfectly with the rooibos. I find with this one here that you can’t really over steep it, in fact, the longer you steep it the better it tastes.
This will definitely be a staple in my tea cupboard from now on!
