Our Lavender Green Tea has the sweet, ethereal flavor of Tibetan lavender mixed with an exceptional Mao Jian grade Hunan green tea. Find notes of sweet grass, moss and honey finishing with peach and floral tones.
The lavender is grown on the Rooftop of the World, an area about four times the size of Texas between peaks of the Himalayas at about 4500 feet. It is the third least inhabited part of the world, behind Antarctica and Greenland. Nomadic tribesmen took up residence here and farm the wild lavender. When the lavender blooms into a flowing sea of fragrant purple flowers, they are picked by the nomad families. While the adults are working, the children try to catch the Parnassius butterflies that rise into the air when the lavender is disturbed. The lavender is then dried in the sun and carried down the mountain, usually into Lhasa, using yaks.
We hope you will enjoy our combination of premium loose leaf green tea with the sweet ethereal flavor of lavender.
