Lemon Lavender Mint from Choice Organic Teas


Lemon Lavender Mint

Lemon Lavender Mint

Oh my golly – this is pure love. Honest to goodness, this is probably one of my all-time favourite tisanes.

(And yes, that’s me pictured above with my cup of Lavender Lemon Mint)

Choice Organic Teas describes this tea as:

Our sophisticated organic blend features accents of sun-blessed lavender, layers of mellow lemon, and crisp mints in a fresh yet soft-tasting herbal tea.

This is one of those teas that really benefits from a good two spoonfuls of sugar (or your sweetner of choice), and I like to give it a five-minute brew under a mug cozy. The lavender gives a gently floral undertone to the mint and lavender, which to my tastebuds makes the combination, when sweetened, less candy-like than it otherwise would be. It is at once a complex and highly comforting blend. It’s also another brew that works beautifully iced in the nicer weather.
