Show Description

This tea is a unique blend of green tea, lavender and peppermint herbs, particularly because lavender is actually the main aroma and flavor of the tea. In most cases, peppermint tends to dominate a blend; in this tea, the peppermint actually enhances the flavor of the lavender, while lingering only in the background as a subtle hint and aftertaste. If ever there was a good bedtime green tea, this blend would be it. (Though green teas before bed are only recommended for those who have cultivated an immunity to caffeine!)

Extra Info:

The original name for lavender was nardus in Ancient Greek, and it appears in the Bible in the Song of Solomon as nard. In Roman times, lavender flowers were sold for 100 denarii per pound, the rough equivalent of a month's wages for a farm laborer or fifty haircuts from a barber. It reached its modern name by way of the Latin word lavanda, meaning 'things to be washed,' because it was a common herb used in Roman baths.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 180°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 3 minutes.

Ingredients:

Organic Chinese Green Tea, Organic French Lavender, and Organic Peppermint,

Origin:

Blended In Albuquerque by NM Tea Co.

My auntie introduced this to me after a long night. After 2 cups of this tea i was feeling 100%!! Not only does it taste wonderful, but there is something in there that soothes the mind and body. In my familia it is.... The Hangover Tea!

I was not expecting to like this tea very much, but I loved the after taste of lavender that kept me wanting more. I think the mint overpowered it just a bit though.

This was the first tea I tried from NM Tea Co. It is wonderful with the lavender honey! I have shared it with several people and all have loved it. It is very soothing and fragrant.

I like this tea as an evening standby because it is refreshing and relaxing. The lavender soothes and the mint flavor makes the tea less heavy. I don't normally go for mint, but the peppermint contribution is somewhat light and doesn't eclipse the other flavors.
