Lavender Butterfly

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, 
various species occur meaning that the butterflies in one area exist nowhere else. The sight of the pluckers’ children chasing after the multi-hued insects is one of magic 
and delight.  
 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.
