I blindly bought this tea online based on the picture alone. The beautiful combination of lavender buds, cornflower petals, mallow blossoms and bits of rose and hibiscus had me sold.
From the moment I unzipped the little grey packet, this tea had me hook, line, and sinker. It’s even prettier in real life where you can properly appreciate the colors and textures of the blend, and my god, that smell. Lemongrass and lavender and mango and a sweet kick of florals.
I’d highly recommend steeping it loose in a glass teapot or jar so you have the experience of watching the liquor turn hot pink as the tea expands and the little flowers pop open. It’s deliciously tart from the lemongrass and lemon notes, sweet from the mango, and floral from the lavender and rose. You can taste each individual component and the medley they create at once. The longer you let it steep, the more intense the tartness becomes, and it goes from a light fruity floral at 2 minutes to a near lemonade at 7.
