My 2nd foray into the “Romance Teas” sampler, I think this one might be a dud. It has the wonderful taste of rooibos, and that’s about it. I did not taste a lavender note, and I may barely smell one. Admittedly, lavender can be very subtle and I may be biased since when I cook with lavender or make my own loose tea recipes, I am very heavy-handed. Also, I was multi-tasking when I made the cup and I may have flubbed steeping it, so I’ll eat my words if it turns out better the next time. But for now, meh.
