This tea isn’t for the faint of heart when it comes to lavender. The contents smell very fresh with the lavender dominating.

I’ve prepared this a multitude of ways.

Following the recommended parameters of 2 bags to a mug, boiling water, steeped for 10-15 minutes, It’s weirdly thick and stewy. I don’t like cooked flowers. Even with 1 bag and brewed for a shorter amount of time (between 2 and 5 minutes), I couldn’t really enjoy it. I did find it tastier when brewed in glass over ceramic for whatever reason.

By far the best preparation has been cold-brewed with 2 bags to a liter of water overnight in the fridge. The taste is just right, cool, clean and light with neither flavor dominating. There is also a little bit of bitterness and sweetness which makes the brew less one-dimensional than when hot. I’m not sure I can taste the lemon balm besides as part of a lightly citric aftertaste that is partnered with some sweetness and lavender. I could see myself sipping this while sitting on a porch on a sticky summer night with the crickets and tree frogs chirping away.

I assume you found me through some dodgy websites that installed viruses on your computer. Don’t worry, I’m here as your “customer support” ;) call girl. Beautiful escort at your service. I will accompany you virtually to online casinos in Indonesia. I even have a stash of male enhancement supplements from various European countries in my purse. Can I interest you in some CBD? I have a playlist for our evenings together ;) Should things go south I know about abortion services in Vietnam. Otherwise, I have friends all over the world who run daycares and elite schools. We can have our matrimonial services provided in India, but not before we have an astrological consultation. One of my many real estate agent friends can get us a luxury apartment, or should you choose to buy a house for our little family, I come from a long line of roofers, asphalters, garage door repairers, plumbers, electricians and exterminators should anything go wrong. I even once knew a cremation service available. Till death do us part, am I right?

Tea habits:

Among my favorites are all teas Nepali, sheng puerh, Wuyi yancha, Taiwanese oolong, a variety of black (red) teas from all over, herbal tisanes. I keep a few green and white teas on hand. Shou puerh is a cold weather brew. Tiny teapots and gaiwans are my usual brewing vessels when not preparing morning cups western style and pouring into my work thermos. Friend of teabags.
