Thanks so much for this one a while ago, Mastress Alita!  I’ve had it a few times, so next steep session it will be a sipdown.  This is a lovely concept and a unique one I haven’t really seen around anywhere else.  The flavor is quite light even with 1 1/2 teaspoons.  The lightest touches of lavender and what should be raspberry in the ingredients seems more like strawberry to me (which is mentioned in the description).  The rooibos even adds the complementary base for these flavors.  I could swear one of the sips was even creamy.  This is lovely but I wanted those flavors to POP even more! 
Steep #1  // 1 1/2 teaspoons for full mug // 12 minutes after boiling  // 2 minute steep
Steep #2  // just boiled //  4-5 minute steep

A Berry Frui-tea July! I got this not long ago in a TeaSource order, quite interested in the berry/lavender flavor combo. I stayed up way too late yesterday so tonight I decided I would keep to herbals, so this seemed a good time to try this. The dry leaf smelled lovely, like vanilla cream and some sort of fruity sorbet/gelato.

Brewed up, I’m getting a lot of strawberries-and-cream vibes from the aroma, and not much lavender, despite the name. Maybe it’s in the flavor more than the scent? Took a sip and this is an absolutely lovely rooibos. It’s very sweet, with a very fruity flavor, with a strong strawberry note and a slight sweet cream flavor. TeaSource has another rooibos tea called Strawberries and Cream that I have in my cupboard (though I have yet to review it) and this tastes remarkably similar, though I do make out a subtle touch of lavender toward the end of the sip. I actually wish the lavender was a bit stronger, because it tastes a little too much like the other tea; I may have to add a pinch of extra lavender from my raw lavender buds stash. I’ve always liked the Strawberries and Cream tea and it was recently discontinued, so it’s nice to know this one is going to continue to scratch that itch, at least, and I can see why they decided to get rid of it now that I’ve had this one and see how similar they are to each other. Plus, this one just feels more relaxing to sip on, thanks to the lavender (and I had to medicate for a migraine today, so the lavender infusion is definitely a plus in that regard, even if the flavor is getting overwhelmed a little by the strawberry and vanilla in the cup). It’s a nice tasting rooibos, but I think it needs a little stronger lavender to balance against the strength of the berry.
