Romance of the leaves! Springtime wouldn't be complete without the intoxicating aroma of lilacs blooming! Towards the end of every winter I anxiously check my lilac bushes every day for the new growth that heralds the end of the snowy season. In bloom, their aroma has the ability to brighten my day and make all my dreams seem possible. I cut the blooms and place them in a vase in my car so I can carry their abundant fragrance with me on my travels.
We created this floral tea so that I can enjoy the amazing aroma of lilacs at any time of the year. This tea blend brews to a deep amber cup with a fragrant taste that leaves a delightful flowery aftertaste on the palate.
Ingredients: Black teas, erica flowers and lilac flavor.
Brew tea at 212º - steep for 3 minutes.
|This tea was very gently flavored with lilac. The black tea was strong and the mildness of the lilac blossoms I felt were a smidge lost, but then I enjoy feeling like I am actually drinking the flower, whether it be rose, lavender or lilac, so perhaps that is why I wanted more. :)|
||Delightful, perfect for afternoon
|Smells really good on opening. Floral, but a little heavy and dark somehow, in a good way. Tea is a bit broken up, and very dark colored.
Hard to put my finger on it. A bit of malt on the first part of the sip but it fades away into a fairly mild lilac. The black tea gives it enough body to balance the flower, so it doesnt seem soapy at all. The more I drank, the more I liked it. Excellent with a dash of lemon in it. No need for honey or sugar, light and sweet all in its own.|

||A gorgeous tea in appearance, fragrance, and flavor!
|Oh I love the tiny little buds in this tea! Such a nice touch... the flowers so tiny you can barely see them. Lilac season is almost here! There are a few lilac bushes in the yard -- probably the best time of year for the yard while they are in bloom. Maybe because its towards the end of winter I cant really say how much this tea resembles lilacs, but the tea is certainly floral enough while not being too much for me. Nothing can really beat fresh lilacs though. First steep session, one teaspoon didnt seem enough for my tastes. With a teaspoon and a half, I get a depth of black tea that pairs perfectly with the floral - a nice brisk black tea. There arent too many floral teas in my collection especially not unless they are jasmine, so Im very happy I bought a bit of this one. Will be drinking it especially in Spring!

||A Delightful Surprise
|Lilac Bouquet tea is absolutely delightful. I wasnt sure what to expect and thought perhaps the lilac would be too intense, It isnt. The black tea and that delicious, delightful lilac flavor are perfectly balanced.
This is a soft, delicate tea yet flavorful. Its sweet and flowery jammy tasting to me. This is tea for leisurely relaxed moments alone or chatting with friends.
This is another for my keeper list. Its excellent both hot and iced.|
