French Blue Lavender. Sounds good right? Bright green seed shaped buds, tipped with soft purple and cream petals. While it didn’t steep to the bright purple I expected – It’s got a pleasing scent: bright, clean, and floral – like perfume.

First impression: this stuff is pretty & POWERFUL. The cup I had was rather pungent, invading my sinuses with it’s too soapy touch. But the flavor under the salt & soap seemed light and pleasant – like sage with more sweetness. The soapiness spoiled it for me – I’m told it makes a good latte though.

To be fair, the cafe I went to serves 2-3 table spoons to 1 large carryout cup.
Depending on the barista: It can get a lot of steep time waiting on the counter, so I can’t vouch for what the actual flavor profile of this tea might be. If you feel like braving a cup, I’d try half the steep time and maybe 1/3 of the leaves recommended. Thinning it out with more hot water didn’t help much much in my case.

Flavors: Floral, Lavender, Perfume, Sage, Salty, Soap, Sweet

“A woman is like a tea bag- you don’t know how strong she is until she’s in hot water.”

Double Cup is the steamy dream of a feminist tea lover – bringing sexy back to tea. Far gone are the days of stiff Victorian restraint, let the 1950s housewife toil in the kitchen, it’s time for women to serve themselves. Double Cup Teas is two heaping cups of self love: One part artistry, one part activism.

We’re interested in teas as diverse, bold, and complex as the women who drink them.
