Thanks to The Tea Bees I’m able to bring you my latest tea review featuring their French Lavender Love. I love a flavoured black tea so I can’t wait to get sipping on this.

French Lavender Love
For this beautiful looking blend The Tea Bees use: Luxury Ceylon Tea, Lavender & Cornflower Petals.
As soon as you open the tea pouch you are instantly engulfed with the floral aroma of the lavender mixer with light undertones of the cornflower petals. The black tea side of the blend is still detectable but primarily the lavender.
Let’s get brewing !
The aroma doesn’t majorly change whilst the tea brews the lavender is still the most noticeable aroma of anything it’s slightly more mellow than in its loose leaf form.
As to be expected with a black based tea the brewed liquid is a dark brown in its colouring.
Let’s get sipping !
First sip is just tealicious. The use of the lavender within the blend is the clear flavour within each sip. With the added extra of the corn flowers the brew is extra floraly. The black tea is at the second part of the sip which makes a major contrast to the floral side but together it just works.
This tea is the perfect blend for an afternoon sip and would be just perfect with an afternoon tea. It’s floral side makes it light and refreshing and pallet cleansing.
The use of the lavender makes the sip just that bit more calming and adds to the overall sipping experience which is just delightful.
Happy Sipping 🙂
