Although not recognized as such, the Tibetan Plateau, where the Lavender used in this remarkable tea blend is grown, could easily be listed as one of the great wonders of the World. The Plateau, often called the Rooftop of the World is about 4 or 5 times the size of France or Texas and stretches out between the magnificent peaks of the Himalayas at an average elevation of over 4500 meters. The plateau is home to brackish lakes, tundra, grasslands, desert and is the third least inhabited corner of the world after Antarctica and Greenland.
We're pleased to offer this fabulous tea that combines the sweet ethereal flavor of lavender with an exceptional Hunan green tea. The cup is exemplary with notes of sweet grass, moss and honey leading to a finish sprinkled with peach, and floral tones. An amazing tea from an amazing corner of Earth. (An excellent dessert tea. Try serving it with delicate pastries or a citrus parfait.)
