Lavender Green Tea

On one of my visits to Jade's Tea I tried a lovely Lavender Green Tea.  I quite liked this tea and decided to purchase some to brew at home.

P6261639It says on the bag to use boiling water, but a lower temperature is better for the green tea. 

P6261641It occurred to me that this would be easy to blend myself at home.  Why not add some culinary lavender to a favorite loose green tea.  This way I could control the amount of lavender flavor.

P7091673This worked out perfectly and it was easy to just sprinkle some lavender into the filter basket with the loose green tea before brewing.  Now I can enjoy a cup of relaxing and fragrant Lavender Green Tea whenever the mood strikes.

Sadly, I just learned that Jade’s Tea will be closing on July 30th.  I’ve only just begun to enjoy her tea room and now it will be gone like so many others.  I wish her all the best with the new online tea business.

tea rooms seem to have been hit hard by the economy. That is very sad for I always enjoy them.

Clever idea.

Sadly so many tearooms open for awhile then close. They start online businesses that just meander along and really don't make anything from it.

Love your idea about blending your own lavender green tea, but I am SO sorry to hear Jade will be closing the shop! Thank goodness we got a visit in when we did!!!

Sorry to here your tea room is closing. So sad. But I'm glad you found an easy substitute for the tea- smart of you.
