Thumbs up!"This is a naturally sweet tincture with that leads with the spearmint and a citrusy component that could be either the lemon balm, the lemongrass or the lemon verbena of all three for that matter. The lavender then follows through with a clean, floral taste that just leaves one craving more"

americanlavenderprovencalI was first introduced to lavender in food and drink by a friend of mine a few years ago. She was always making lavender lemonade and lavender brownies. I was hooked from that time on. So when the chance at a sample of lavender tea came up I jumped at. American Tea Room’s Provence consists of lavender, lemon verbena, lemon balm, lemongrass, peppermint, and spearmint. And the scent reminds me of spring with the strong floral scent with a tinge of lemon.

I set up my tea-maker using two tablespoons with a temperature setting for 210 degrees (their website calls for 200 degrees but my tea-maker doesn’t offer that option) and a steep time of 5 minutes. The resulting liquor is pale yellow, almost reminding me of dish soap

The taste is hard to grasp hold of. This is a naturally sweet tincture with that leads with the spearmint and a citrusy component that could be either the lemon balm, the lemongrass or the lemon verbena of all three for that matter. The lavender then follows through with a clean, floral taste that just leaves one craving more.

I am on the fence as to whether I would purchase this tea for my own tea cupboard as I don’t tend to drink a lot of non-caffeinated teas or tinctures. I would be worried that it would get stale before I was able to finish it. But the taste is one that I would really like to keep around to enjoy. I do highly recommend this tea for any one that enjoys lavender and a non-caffeinated drink in the evenings.

Special Offer! Free shipping on all purchases over $50 from AmericanTeaRoom.com.
