I love this tea, but it has the potential to be a little overwhelming at times. If you steep for too long, the rose becomes overpowering. Lavender Dreams makes a good substitute for Earl Grey in a London Fog!

There is a lot of extra stuff in this tea, and for all the good it does, there is nothing but lavender; the aroma of lavender, the overwhelming flavor of lavender, and yet, I don’t seem to see many lavender buds in the blend. It’s sold as a “white tea” blend, but there is hardly any tea in this tea. I think Teavanna should ditch theater and sell it as a herbal blend. Stop wasting white tea!
After learning how to best brew it, I am a big fan of this tea. It is VERY floral – it is like drinking straight flowers. So if that isn’t for you, then steer clear! I’ve found this does not taste good if oversteeped, and actually is most balance when I stick to 2 minutes of steep time. I had never had lavender tea before this and now I plan to seek out others. The only problem I had was that I was introduced to candied violets. My cup has never seen the candied violet because I admit, when I see them I pick them out and just eat them straight. I am now on the hunt for candied violets that aren’t an arm and a leg!!
This is one of my new favorites, actually. You really need to like Lavender, though, as that is the primary taste.
If the Lavender is too much, you can subdue it with other Teavana teas like Sweet Asian Pear (excellent iced!), or alter the floral flavor by adding Peachberry Jasmine Sutra.
Drinkable but for me, primarily medicinal. I haven’t figured out which ingredient is responsible (even after getting a list of all of them and trying them individually), but somehow Lavender Dreams is sometimes able to abort my migraines. Even if there’s no other reason to shop at Teavana, I’ll keep buying this for now. [6/10]
