Thursday Tea Time

Cool tea bag presentation
This week - HEB My Cup of...Serenity Spearmint Lavender

Cost: $4.99 at HEB and Central Market
Number of teabags: 15
Caffeine:  No
Type of tea:  Herbal
Steeping time: 5-7 minutes*
Add ins:  As is (good), half a packet of Stevia (better), a teaspoonful of Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf's fat free/sugar free vanilla powder (best!)
Teabag fragrance:  Wrigley's Spearmint gum with a touch of lavender potpourri
Ingredients:  Spearmint, lavender petals
Opinion:  A nice minty change of pace from peppermint tea.  You can notice the lavender just a little bit, and the flavor of both sticks around in your mouth afterwards.  That's the most accurate but probably not the best way to describe it.  Colgate or Crest should add lavender to one of their toothpastes.  Seriously.  Brush your teeth and pleasant dreams!   Bonus it is an herbal tea, and *I can leave the teabag in the mug like all the cool tea drinkers do.  Truthfully, I was a bit leary of the lavender, but it stays in the background and makes for an interesting combination.   And a pretty box.  I would definitely buy this again.
Rating: 4.5
