Strange VariaTEA TTB: Tea #6
I think this was one of the subscription box exclusives, so I’m grateful to VariaTEA for including it so I had the chance to try it! As tempting as it was to latte, since latte is in the name, I decided to just have it with a splash of milk so that I wouldn’t use as much tea leaf – I want to give others the chance to try it too.
I feel like, in theory, this sounds really good – chocolate and lavender as pretty complimentary to each other and lavender lattes are also definitely a very enjoyable, pleasant thing. I found this to be VERY lavender forward though – in a way that really dominated the cup and, for me at least, really didn’t create for a balanced drink. I do like lavender teas, but I personally prefer them lighter and this seems a bit more apt to a hardcore lover of lavender. Not a bad flavour of lavender though, mind you – just not the direction/level I expected or personally wanted.
