My thoughtful and creative gift-giving husband saw to it I had about 3 bulk ounces each of German chamomile, Oregon peppermint, and lavender for experimenting and blending.

So I tried a teaspoonful of the lavender with my old standby Monk’s Blend. May have to work with the proportions a little, but it tones down the grenadine sweetness a little and — well, tastes a little like a purple Crayola. (Not that I ever actually ate one during my formative years.)

But then again, if you’re a sucker for blank paper and a brand new box of pointy crayons….

Anyway, it’s pleasant and purple and I’m feeling decidedly relaxed and Christmas pudding-y.

What a thoughtful and creative gift indeed! Have fun blending!

Oh, blending flavors is so much fun. Purple Crayola? Sounds interesting :)

I have some lavender too – if you’re looking for ideas, chamomile, mint, and lavender all together make a very nice herbal tea. I like lavender with Earl Grey too.

I really enjoyed this one. The tastes mixed together just right and mmmm….so yummy. I love vanilla, and the grenadine made it perfect. Definitely need to buy more.

Not only does this tea taste great, but it is great for its original purpose, staying up for long periods of religious meditation. I often stay up for hours just sitting and thinking, and this tea makes you feel awake, but not jittery or how caffeine makes you feel. Regardless, this tea is a great blend of sweet and savory (i especially like the hints of vanilla). I highly recommend this to all fans of traditional teas.

I don’t think I steeped this long enough, but it was still tasty! We picked up a couple single bags of this to try a Monk’s Blend before we invested in some looseleaf, but I enjoyed the light vanilla flavour of it.

The Ceylon tea is a little on the bitter side, but the slight hint of vanilla and sweet grenadine was nice.

It’s good – not too strongly flavored. I was surprised how much I enjoyed it – I would consider buying it in the future.
