BB Tea for today. Thanks Muppetlove

While this was pleasing to my palate and helped my stomach…I didn’t find that it tasted much like your stereo-typical lavender. It was a mellow rooibos and a strange powdery-type taste. It was sweet and soothing but ‘powdery’ and not really floral or lavender.

Like I said…certainly NOT bad tasting but it doesn’t fit the description either.

I won’t rate this one for now.

So soothing. This is a really lovely lavender and I’m a little sad to say that it’s a sipdown. At least I still have my Butiki Lavender Chamomile in stock :)

Tonights cup of meh is this. I am beginning to suspect that Zheena’s tea is just not for me.

A fellow tea lover friend of mine bought this and didn’t enjoy it too much so he gifted it to me. It tastes unlike anything else amongst my vast collection. I did rather enjoy it, but not enough to buy it when I run out.

Update: 6/22/13 Okay, I lied. I bought the Twinings Rooibos one last time I was buying tea.

This is my all time favorite tea! Of course from day to day my preference will change, but I always come back to Zhena’s Red Lavender. A sip leaves a sweet breath on your tongue like drinking a good cup of King’s tea while standing in a broad field of lavender blossoms.

The lavender is instant relaxation in a cup, and the rooibos is a delightful complement. Great as a hot tea, and even better iced on a summer day.

This tea is also certified Fair Trade & organic, so you can enjoy it without reservations.

additional notes: Ancient tin that I have finally finished. Of course I can’t just throw out the tin. It’s amazing I rated it THIS highly. It’s not bad.

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.

Light, slightly sour, fairly dry, flavor stays for a while ,Lavender, tangy. I could easily drink this pretty consistently, especially for the smoothness.

Flavors: Lavender, Tangy, Vanilla

I don’t know if it was me or the tea. I thought it was way too sweet. Maybe I dislike rooibus or it was just a bad first time. Didn’t really taste any lavender just an almost sickly sweet taste
