Thanks to Kasumi for this sample! Lavender teas often blend together for me: I’ve tried so many that it’s hard to tell one from the other. But this one definitely stands out from the pack, mostly because of the lovely sencha base. Often sencha blends will use a lower-grade sencha since the flavor will be partially masked, but the sencha in this is divine! Grassy and creamy, with a slightly salty-seaweed-y undertone that’s a pleasant contrast to the floral lavender. Yum!

A favorable sencha mixed with lavender blossoms. Very simple, and very good. Sips are salty, bright and floral and become smoother as it cools. It’s rather grassy, but not in a bad way. I don’t feel that the lavender is masking a low quality tea. If anything, I might prefer it with a little less lavender for the seaweed-y sencha to shine through even more. It’s a minor nitpick, though. I don’t have much to complain about here.

The smell of this tea is absolutely divine. The taste is great as well—a very solid Sencha. Combined with the calming taste and (especially!) smell of Lavender, this is a great night-time blend. It has a very tranquil taste, but it maintains the slight bitter kick that’s common with Senchas.

An interesting tea-and-flavouring blend, with dried lavender flowers incorporated into a straightforward sencha. The scent of lavender is very strong, which some may find disconcerting, but it steeps into a smooth and soothing green tea. A nice change from the more common jasmine-based flavourings.

Well, this is pretty basic and somewhat uninspiring stuff but I don’t want to drink anything awesome or, god forbid, new, as I wouldn’t be able to taste it right today anyway.

The base tea is pretty astringent and I don’t get very much of the vegetal notes that are usually in a sencha. I am guessing they are covered up by lavender. It is not, all in all, an unpleasant combination. The lavender is either that strong or I am regaining the sense of taste again ;D Because I can most definitely taste it… and taste it.

I am kind of indifferent to the flavor (or scent) of lavender but I have noticed that it does relax me. Perhaps I should look for some awesome herbal bleds with lavender in it?

The aroma of lavender overpowers the aroma of the sencha with the fresh leaves, it is sad but I love the smell of lavender and am a sucker for anything lavender flavored.

The brewed tea has more of the bright green aroma of the sencha which blends well with the lavender. The color is also a really lovely light green.

The taste is somewhat evocative of pine needles and the smell of grass. It is wonderful, very clean and green! This is one of my favorite floral greens from Wegmans, I think the taste is just so unique and yummy

One of my favorite green tea blends! I made a huge mug of this, and it calmed me down. The scent is really strong.
