I loved the lavender flavor in this one. Most of the blend is apple, and I’m not sure why because it contributed nothing. Otherwise it was tasty lavender softened by a nice chamomile. I would definitely drink this one again. It’s one of the better lavender blends I’ve had lately.

Apple, lavender, chamomile…all on my shelves…I’m thinking this would be an easy homebrew in the proportions of one’s preference!

You’re so right! When my mountain of tea is smaller, I definitely want to make my own lavender blends because I love lavender everything.

I hate the taste of chamomile, so for me, the apple actually “mellowed”/“drowned out” a bit of the soapy/blechy flavor I get from chamomile, and I actually really liked this tea! (One of the few teas with chamomile I can say that about). My main issue is one you’ve pointed out before… Teapigs is really expensive for teabags and doesn’t offer more affordable loose leaf options either. I’ve wanted more of this one, but the price for a measly 15 teabag pack wasn’t worth it… maybe I should take gmathis’ route and try self blending it, and then I could lower the amount of chamomile even more.

I can understand that! It’s a bummer because I would totally repurchase a few Teapigs flavors, but not at their prices. I tried to grow my own lavender, but it immediately died, so my dreams of making my own tea blends are temporarily halted ):

I get plain lavender, as dried buds from the farmer’s market, usually quite affordable and then I’m supporting local farmers.

Bio

I’m an event planner who always has multiple mugs of tea beside me. Hobbies other than tea include board games, video games, cooking international dishes, science fiction, hiking, jigsaw puzzles, tap dancing, reading, listening to podcasts, and playing with my troublesome kitties.

Favorite flavors: dessert flavors, nutty, melon, mint, strawberry, anything rooibos-related.

Don’t prefer: Smoky, rosemary, savory flavors, floral (other than lavender), plain tea.

I always drink flavored tea, and preferably caffeine-free or black. I’ll try just about anything though! Let me know if you’re interested in a swap!

My ratings are kind of meaningless, but basically
90-100 pretty perfect
80-89 really good
70-79 good, but not the best
60-69 okay, but probably not for me
1-59 varying degrees of dislike
