I got a Revolution sampler set and I’ve been saving this particular tea for just the right moment. Today I find myself tired and needing a kick of caffeine and also strangely anxious. Earl Grey + Lavender to the rescue! I love the effect of the scent of lavender on my nervous system, I’m hoping that works in tea as well.
This tea smells amazing right out of the box. Yum! I’m already wishing I had more than one bag. When steeped the tea smells more of earl grey than lavender. I only see one little purple flower through the mesh – hopefully there are more inside the bag!
MMMM… this tastes amazing. It’s a little hot, but I’m sipping it anyway. The earl grey is mild and I can taste the subtle floral of the lavender. I’m glad this is a subtle tea, I don’t feel like getting smacked across the face with flavor this morning.
I have 10 more delicious minutes to enjoy this tea and steepster before my students come in. It’s crazy hair day at school today and this first grade teacher has cotton-candy colored hair to celebrate! Oh goodness, they just peeked in the window and saw my crazy hair. So much for a peaceful tea time, hahaha, now they are all crowding around to look.
This tea has a definite calming effect. I don’t know if it’s the slight smell of lavender affecting me or if it’s the brew, but I’ll take it. This is the first Revolution tea where I felt that I would be making a purchase in the future. I’m a big fan of this wonderful tea! It was the perfect first cuppa for me today.
