Lavender Piquant

description

This is a fragrant, spicy-sweet, imposing tea that will find takers in those who love a burst of flavors in their daily cups. There's that pungent hit of pepper and clove, the deep fragrance of cardamom, and softness from lavender. They emerge with great intensity and stay for the entire length of the cup. Perfect for a festive occasion, we say.

taste

The liquor is bright, warm and sweet in parts. Flavors of cardamom and peppercorns are prominent at the start, followed by hints of clove. The liquor mellows down towards the end, and lavender offers a soft floral rounding note to the cup. A fresh citrus hint comes through at the end but fades quickly. The finish is fresh and clean flavored, with the second steep equally flavorful.
