I can not believe I have only reviewed this tea one time, and it was frightful review about how adding lemon to this tea made it turn vicious.

What a different day! You see, after I tried that sample, I bought a one pound bag of lavender from Harney and Sons. I was planning to use it for the occasional cup of tea, for adding to other teas or tisanes like tulsi, and for making sachets and such.

I recently got the idea that since I like rosemary water very much, I might like lavender water. I simply put about two teaspoons – maybe a tablespoon – of lavender blossoms into a carafe and filled it with cold water and put it in the fridge. At first the water stayed clear, for hours and hours. By the next morning, it was yellow. I poured it through a strainer and tasted and found it a bit strong, so I drank it mixed half and half with cold water. It was perfect! This also stretched my carafe and gave double the cold tea I had anticipated. I think this will be a regular thing to alternate with my rosemary water, since I don’t have quite as much rosemary growing as I used to have. It is so relaxing and I really slow down and breathe when I drink it.

It sounds like a lovely thing to have on hand.

I gifted some to some of my student’s today. I am eager to see how they like lavender tea, hot and cold!

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about ten years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
