thank you Steep City for the samples! I love the logo and the packaging for the 2-3 teaspoon samples. Also… the teas are really good. This sounded like a lovely spring/summer blend. After a three minute steep, there is equal parts lavender and lemon. It’s seems to me like lemon verbena but I didn’t see the verbena actually in the list of ingredients. I didn’t see much lavender in the blend, but it’s a nice balance of flavor. The tea I had the other day only had a few pieces of lavender floating the infuser, but the flavor was amazing! Hibiscus is listed, but it isn’t a problem. I don’t taste any! The oolong is kind of hidden in the flavors until the second steep, but the flavor is nice. Lemony lavender! This blend is very bright and refreshing. It really IS lavish. It was a nice sunny day for a cup or two of this one.

Lavish Lavender tea is one of the most soothing teas I’ve ever tried. The dry leaf smell is complex – I can’t think of a good way to to explain it. Once the tea brews, however, the scent is heavenly and I can easily smell a combination of lavender, raspberries, and citrus. Yum! This tea tastes as good as it sounds. All the flavors come together nicely and make for a smooth drink.

I’ve had several cups of this tea since I received it last weekend. It’s not going to last long at this rate! Anyway, here’s what I’ve discovered. If you drink this when it’s piping hot (but not tongue-burning hot), the tea is very tart and somewhat harsh. If you wait for it to cool down a bit, you’ll be rewarded with an amazingly flavorful brew that just melts on the tongue. Also, I’ve enjoyed the second steepings of this tea more than the first. With the second steep, the raspberry is more mild and the taste of the oolong peeks through more. It’s practically a different experience altogether – both of which are great.

Hey Sarah,
Is the tea coming out bitter?. Is it steeping for too long or water too hot? 185 perhaps… let me know!

Sarah

No, not bitter. If I drink the tea before it’s had 5-6 minutes to cool off then the raspberry is overpowering. Once the tea has cooled, it blends so much better with the other flavors. Most teas that I’ve tried taste better when they’ve cooled for a little while, but I get impatient sometimes and drink them too early. Thanks for asking!

david

No problem Sarah! If you have any questions just let us know.
