Leaves: very tiny fuzzy purple flower buds + a bit of green
Aroma: Lovely & Relaxing, classic lavender
Color: clear grey
Taste: I tore away the silver tab at the top of the tea, not even opening the package i could smell the scent of lavender when i brought it to my nose! It one of my favorite scents so opening the packet completely i got the full aroma. Such a nice pleasant aroma having that relaxing feel to it. I noticed the directions on the website were different from my usual tea making calling for 500ml/17oz of water & 2-5grams of tea which i googled 5g and found it to be equal to 1tsp which is what i went with. I also read that this tea is sometimes too strong on it’s own so i might try my 2nd cup with a touch of honey. It’s also 1am when i decided to brew this i wasn’t ready for bed just yet so i thought why not make a cup of tea. When finish brewing (some of the buds had also bloomed) & poured in my cup I noticed that instead of a purple hue i was expecting the tea was a clear grey color. The aroma before steeping remained even after brewing. As for taste i find it to be very light not too strong on its own. Overall i found this to be a nice tea, i’m going to try brewing it again to see if i can achieve a purple tone using less water but the same amount of leaves.
Thank you Teasenz for this sample!
I made this again with 8oz of water and 1stp of tea to see if i would get a purple color as shown. Sadly the color only turned to a dark gray color.
