Relax and unwind at the end of a long day with this home blended, fragrant, and soothing Lavender Tea. Also delicious as an afternoon tea.
This has been an extremely wet and cold spring. In years past, vegetable plots would be sprouting and flower beds a riot of colors by this time. Not so this year. Most people are still huddled indoors. Even the crocuses, daffodils, and tulips are out later than usual. While April showers bring May flowers, showers in May will drown the flowers. 😥
Tea – the Perfect Antidote
The perfect antidote to inclement weather is to curl up with a good book and cup of tea. Use your favorite mug or treat yourself to that pretty antique teacup, which ever suits your fancy. There is no reason why pretty china should only be reserved for guests. Sit back, relax, and enjoy these moments of serenity. The sun will eventually emerge and there should be time enough to tend to the garden. If nothing else, this Lavender Tea will help you keep a stiff upper lip against that beastly weather outside. 😉
Lavender Tea – Soothing and Calming
Lavender is soothing and calming. Combined with tea, it is a real treat for the senses. This delicious and fragrant tea was adapted from The Pleasures of Tea and is a perfect taken with these Lavender Almond Cookies.

Keeping Tea Warm
A tea warmer or tea cozy is a perfect companion to the teapot in colder weather. It adds to the cozy feeling while keeping the tea warm for a longer period of time. This tea warmer uses a standard tea light which burns for about 4 hours.
