I adore lavender, so it was only natural that I try drinking it by itself one day. Unbrewed, the familiar lovely scent is fairly strong, so I was surprised that the resulting tea didn’t have a very distinctive scent (or color — I was hoping for purple!). When it first touched my tongue, I was very disappointed by the mild flavor, but I soon found that the true treasure of this as a tea is in the aftertaste. If you could drink an afternoon of rolling around in a sunny field sniffing flowers, this is how it would taste: light, floral, and soothing. Lovely.
And of course, this is also perfect to have around for livening up other tea!
