Show Description

This is a perfect blend of calming ingredients if your looking to avoid chamomile. The lemon and mango flavors meld nicely with the two main ingredients, lavender and lemon grass.

Extra Info:

In the Lure Mountains of Provence lavender grows everywhere. Lavender flowers are gathered when they first start to bloom and are dried on a cloth, as they tend to fall apart. Lavender is most often used for perfuming, but it is also an excellent plant for infusions and has an agreeable floral flavor.

Lemongrass has a subtle yet complex aroma. This perennial herb, native to Southeast Asia is noted for its lemony scent due to a high concentration of citral, its main biological component.

Brewing Instructions:

Bring filtered or spring water to 212°F. Add 1 tsp of tea leaves to an 8oz cup. Pour boiling water over the tea leaves and let steep 5 minutes.

Ingredients:

Lavender, cornflowers, mallow blossom, rose petals, lemongrass, and a hint of lemon and mango flavor,

Origin:

A customer in the shop gushed over this and practically forced it under my nose. I am very glad she did. All I can add to the other reviews is that they may understate the comforting but complex nature of this brew. It has a wonderful soft mouth feel that contributes to the experience. A truly extraordinary tisane.

I gave this a try with my first order based on the reviews, especially the one that described the unique mouth feel of this tea. It has a wonderful perfume, even before it is steeping, and the flavor is delicate: flowery but not perfumey. It does have a unique feel in the mouth. It was a bit more delicate in flavor than I expected, but I could add more tea or steep it longer. I do suspect that the delicacy of the blend is part of the appeal. Wonderful!

The dreary rain has been at it for two months now. I find myself inside a cafe with a brick street before me. The rain drip-drip-drips and splatters outside. The comforting hippy music playing from speakers mounted up above drifts me away to memories past. As the fountain pen blots my notebook with its lavender purple ink I take yet another sip of my favorite drink.

I love this tea, the fresh lavender with a nice touch of lemon. The aroma and subtle lemon of the lemongrass really interacts well with the lavender. A new favorite of mine and I highly recommend this fresh aromatic tea.

This tea is almost romantic in its way. The notes are warm and soothing. They speak to you in whispers. I love how the lavender and the rose play with the mango and lemon. When you're steeping, it fills the house with the smell of springtime. I felt like i was in the most dreamlike of orchards drinking this tea. A must to soothe and calm after a long day!

Unfortunately, I cannot artistically express the fondness I have of drinking this tea as well as the other reviews. However, I can say I highly recommend it for the aroma and taste. I am like a little kid in a candy store when ordering, because so many of the blends are so unique and enjoyable. Shared with friends and they loved it too.

I've had mixed results with both lavender and lemongrass in the past; they smell divine while steeping but tend towards blandness once brewed. (I'm not sure why so many teamakers leave them this way; perhaps they think a calming blend doesn't need an interesting flavor?) This blend, however, is amazing - the hints of rose and mango add just enough complexity to really bring out the fruity and floral notes without overpowering the delicacy of the lavender. This one's getting a permanent spot in my tea cupboard!

I have been looking for non-caffeinated tea to drink before going to bed. The best herbal tea I ever had, with the right amount of lavender (my favorite).

After one of the most divine meals I've ever had at Milad on Canyon Road, when I thought the meal couldn't get any better, I finished it off with a cup of Midnight Blue. It transported me....somewhere. One of the best blends I've ever tasted in my life. Words can barely describe it - sublime, mysterious, sophisticated. It's like trying to describe a snowflake. One needs to experience it for one's self. I'm looking forward to visiting your shop!
