Lavender Butterfly by The Great Canadian Tea Company is a flavourful floral green tea. Ultra high in antioxidants and low in caffeine, this tea smells like a day at the spa and makes for a lovely relaxing cup. The aroma from this blend filled my kitchen with the beautiful fresh fragrance of lavender.
The flavour when tasted is highly floral, and in my opinion, best unsweetened. This tea has an astringent finish and I find it best to drink it by itself, I personally would not pair it with food. This is a tea to sit and relax with.
With some experimenting, I’ve come to the conclusion that this tea is better suited to a shorter steeping time. Left too long, the flavour can become quite concentrated and astringent. A shorter steeping time keeps it more mellow, but still very flavourful.
If you like green teas or floral teas, this is a great one to try. It’s full of freshness and flavour and is a lovely cup to chill out with. Lavender Butterfly’s ingredients are very simple: green tea, and lavender petals.
