So, what did I think? I think this ‘tea’ is perfect if you like drinking lavender. Which I have discovered I don’t, despite my love of all things lavenderish. But, I’ve made this for myself 3 or 4 times now, and each time it’s gone like this. Go to take a sip and my senses are yelling that it’s TOO LAVENDERY. Yuck! It’ll be like pouring a bottle of essential oil into my cup! It’s just wrong! (Drama queen about tea? Me??) And then I take a sip and it’s so smooth, and it’s lavendery, and I can’t really taste much else over the lavender, but it’s smooth and soft and leaves my mouth feeling really clean, and comforted. And this goes for most sips, although with less internal yelling, and then it’s finished and my stomach joins my mouth in feeling soothed, and I look bemusedly at the bottom of my cup and wonder whether I liked it or not.
Cara won’t even try it, given the strength of the lavender, so I probably won’t reorder, but at the same time, it’d be a wonderful thing to have around for soothing. Maybe? And for sure, anyone who straightforwardly likes drinking lavender tea should be right on this one.
