I’m not usually one for floral teas so jasmine and rose usually don’t do it for me. Lavender on the other hand is a whole other story. There is just something about it that makes me incredibly relaxed. Paired with this Chinese oolong, they are a match made in heaven. The taste was very floral but not perfumy or soapy at all. The base tea was fairly green but had a really nice buttery quality to it. There was a lot of sweetness but the vegetal aspect of the oolong added balance. The part that I loved the most is that this is just a plain and simple blend. No flavoring (artificial or otherwise) was needed and both ingredients were still able to shine. +Palais des Thés really knocked it out the park with this one.
