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 natural the world.
The Plateau, often called the Rooftop of the World is about 4 times the size of France 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, and is the third least inhabited corner of the world after Antarctica and Greenland.
Still, from this arid vastness, nomadic tribesmen and their families have made a living, driving yaks from place to place and harvesting the best wild Lavender that grows around the lakes and grasslands under the big sky. When the flowers bloom, it is like a rippling ocean of fragrant purple. The nomad families pluck the flowers, dry them in the sun and bring them down from the mountains, usually into Lhasa. While the adults work, the children amuse themselves by trying to catch the many butterflies that are attracted to the fragrant flowers.
While it may seem hard to believe, a species of butterfly is actually native to the Himalayas and have adapted to the high altitudes. From one range to the next,
It’s an amazing tea from an amazing corner of the earth, the cup is second to none with notes of sweet grass, moss and honey leading to a finish sprinkled with peach, and floral tones.

A balance of the acidity of green tea with the sweetness of lavender results in a refreshing cup of tea. For me, it has a rural quality to the taste - it reminds me of the outdoors. Beautiful cuppa from a fantastic supplier - we will be back for more!
I am a returning customer and Teacakes of Yorkshire has not let me down - this is absolutely delicious tea.
I'm no tea expert but I keep coming back to it so I guess it's alright.
As a lavander fan I've been on a hunt for my favourite lavender based tea and this one is my all time winner! After receiving a sample I was hooked! It tastes and looks beautiful, arrived on time and in perfect condition! Can't recommend enough!
I fell in love with lavender tea in Venice years ago. A few years ago I was having difficulty sleeping and started mixing my own, taken half to three quarters of an hour before bedtime I found it really helped me sleep. I had to use this at 4.20 a.m. a couple of nights ago and it did help me nod off. Its dried aroma is very lavender but it is a nice delicate drink that I will happily sip at any time, thanks TeaCakes it’s not any easy one to find anywhere.
