This one was actually my first cup of the day today.
It was a good choice ‘cause it was pretty light and gentle with really, really smooth flavours so it made for a good ’ease you into your day’ kind of teas that allow you to wake up slowly, and blissfully. Like last time I tried this one, I didn’t really get much in terms of lavender flavours. I have been gently shaking the bag before measuring out leaf for each cup, but my fear is that I’m gonna have one cup out of this bag that’s just “slap you in the face” intense lavender flavour and the rest will all be like this one…
Aside for absent floral notes – this was great, though. It was maybe just a hair too lemon grass over authentic lemon but still made for a very silky and creamy lemon flavour alongside a buttery and fluffy/airy feeling vanilla sponge cake sort of flavour. You know, with really light/airy “whipped” frosting!? That kind of perfect melt in your mouth cake that feels almost weightless on your tongue as you take a bite. And the calories don’t count if you can’t feel it on your tongue, RIGHT?
Yeah – pretty damn close to perfect.
