From Octavia Tea

Revel in the rich, floral duet of fragrant lavender flowers and bright, bold Assam tea. Black tea is rich in antioxidants and anti-aging properties while lavender contains powerful plant-phytonutrients that may help decrease the body’s level of stress hormones and act as a mild sedative and muscle relaxer. Lavender is used in herbalism and natural medicine for anxiety, depression, intestinal bloating, nerve and joint pain.

A sample from Octavia tea! Thanks so much! I’m slowly making my way through the samples… I love a good lavender tea and this is certainly LAVENDER. I’m loving that the strength of the lavender is matched with the strength of the black tea. I think the lavender flavor is from the flowers included in the blend, but also might be some sort of flavoring? It’s just so strong for having maybe fifteen to twenty pieces of lavender in the serving. The assam is tasty, malty and brisk, but a little difficult to taste under the lavender. But I can tell the assam is high quality – very long completely black leaves. I don’t think I’ve ever seen a traditional assam from India with leaves this long. However, the photo for the tea shows some golden leaves and I definitely don’t have any gold leaves in my sample. Both steeps taste exactly the same. I always appreciate finding the perfect parameters for resteeps. Strong but not bitey on either steep – peppery! I love that the flavor is perfect for warmer months, but I love the black tea base when I want something strong. Dainty and tough. It’s also a very tasty flavor combination with fig cookies. A lavender black tea is essential for my cupboard and this one is great.

Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug // 22 minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 4 1/2 minute steep

Dangit! You keep reviewing delicious-sounding Octavia teas! Were they doing a sample promo at some point? I’ve discovered that they have $3 samples on their site, just now….

I actually asked them for a sample of French Breakfast… and I never ask for samples unless a company is offering… and they sent me oodles of samples to review. I completely didn’t expect that and it was AWESOME of them. They don’t have many reviews on their site, so I’m posting both octaviatea.com and on Steepster. You can try passing them an e-mail, I’m sure they wouldn’t mind sending you samples.

I’ve made a cart, but shipping is $13 because Canada. Sadness. I wish they had a free shipping threshold for Canada, as I could easily be convinced to order more and hit it.

Ack, that is no good. I was going to say some of their teas are on Amazon but checking Canada, the prices seem ridiculous…

Kittenna

Hmm, maybe I’ll try emailing them! I wouldn’t expect free shipping on samples to Canada, but shipping would be a small amount to pay if the samples are free.

Heyyooo – tasting note 4800!

So, I ordered this one for myself knowing that I likely wouldn’t like it. I’ve never been a fan of lavender, and the idea of basically a straight lavender tea makes me cringe so badly. The challenge for myself was to push past my comfort zone and find a way to enjoy a tea that was completely contrary to my tastes.

So I brewed this one up hot and straight initially – I had to try it first before deciding what to do with it. It was definitely too intense/floral for my liking, and it reminded me of bath soap. However, it also gave me an idea!

With a bit of added coconut agave, this was the result:

- Very strong, natural lavender notes
- Had a nice freshness to it and a tropical flavour quality
- Resulted in what tasted like a superior/better quality version of DT’s Jessie’s Tea
- Really fresh and with the perfect amount of sweetness!
- It suddenly went from tasting like bath soap to a very serene, peaceful cuppa!

What a perfect fix to a tea I otherwise would NOT have enjoyed!
