Incredibly fresh lavender. The smell is so intense it’s like someone crushed up all the flowers, but they are all whole. My mother loves lavender (this is the third herbal I got for her), and when I let her smell it she jumped back several inches in surprise. It’s really strong.

The tea is a delicate purple color as it steeps—as others have noted, it looks nothing like the picture on the site, tut tut, Harney’s. I can actually see the oils coming out of the blossoms. The end result smells like a bubble bath I have, which is not necessarily a bad thing but also not necessarily something I instinctively want to drink!

Straight up this is a little too herbal even for me. I love flowers, I love lavender, and I love herbals, but there’s a medicinal feeling to it that isn’t my favorite. Once I added some honey it became exactly what I was looking for from a lavender tea! Somewhere in between sharp and medicinal and candied flower petals. Realistically I’ll be mixing it with other things, but this is a good thing to know.

Elizabeth, college student, anthropology major, bio and history minor. I love to travel and try new foods (and teas!). I also enjoy music, books, video games as often as I can get my hands on them.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it a couple of years ago. Tea sometimes helps me feel better when chronic illness is making things hard. It’s also fun to experiment with!

I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything. My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, fruit, vanilla, and floral flavors (especially jasmine and rose). My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.
