When I first opened the package, I was a little unsure about this tea because the scent of the lavender is rather jarring. It took me by surprise just how strong the lavender was. But although the lavender is strong in this tea, it doesn’t overpower the flavor of the Oolong nor does the lavender end up tasting perfume-ish. This one gets big bonus points for that.

The Oolong starts off delicate and buttery with undertones of vegetation. In later infusions the Oolong flavor starts to emerge more as the lavender becomes more subdued. I found the transition between each infusion to be really interesting and I found myself looking forward to seeing just how much the taste would change from cup to cup.

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
