Lavender Buttercream was an impulse purchase for me, after absolutely falling in love with the Lavender Swirl blend from David’sTEA. The Lavender Swirl became my absolute favorite in a couple of days after receiving my order and I was afraid I would use it up too quickly. Having been told this was a similar tasting tea, I purchased 2 oz from Amazon to hopefully have another similar tea to enjoy.

Its only been a couple of days since I drank this but my memories of it are not very clear, aside from a distinct DISLIKE. I did not get lavender notes or vanilla from the dry blend, but I wondered if it was simply being overwhelmed by the rooibos base. I went with a teaspoon and a half, and hoped for the best.

While this is a sweet tea, I did not taste lavender, vanilla, frosting, or anything of the sort in the finished cup. It tasted overwhelmingly of the pineapple in the blend, and not in a good way. It was extremely artificial, and reminded me of the pineapple chunks in sweet and sour chicken from a Chinese restaurant. Add in an oily mouthfeel and I was turned off completely.

Dumped the cup and haven’t touched it since. Yuck.

Hi! My name is Misha. I’m a young woman living with a variety of chronic illnesses and disabilities and making my way through life with the most incredible service dog by my side. Without Jenna, I don’t know where I’d be.

I have loved drinking tea since I was little, but only got into loose leaf teas when I graduated college in 2015. My fiance, who is a tea lover in his own right, gave me the push I needed to get started, and I’ve never looked back.

I love sweet, decadent and fruity teas. Vanilla, lavender, and honey flavors are my go to in winter, while peach, melon and other fruits dominate my tea choices in the warmer months.

I struggle to enjoy straightforward vegetal teas like most pure green or oolong teas, though I will try them. I’m hoping to expand my horizons as I learn and experience more, too.
