One tea I love from the Banff Tea Company is the Lavender Mint tea (soothing and extra-good with just a little drizzle of honey) – which is so lightweight and large in size that we’ve nicknamed it “fluffy tea”. While at Silk Road tea shop in Victoria, BC, a sales clerk pointed us in the direction of something similar – a recommended, very popular tea. The tea is called Angelwater and it is described as a “tea of serenity” with “a subtle, sweet and mellow” flavor. It includes spearmint leaves, lavender blossoms, rose petals, elder flowers and red clover.
Dry, it smells absolutely divine – and it looks incredible! It just looks so incredibly PRETTY. (And who doesn’t like the pretty?!) It’s very similar to the Lavender Mint when brewed, but a bit more complex. It was quite minty, with the lavender/floral taste to follow. I preferred it with a bit of sweetener than without, and thought that it was very good, though I won’t be giving up the Lavender Mint tea instead!
Another blogger loves Angelwater too – read Luv In The Mommyhood, where the writer compares the tea to a ‘mommy drug’, or read Lauren’s comment on the Boss Of You blog about how Angelwater is the tea-of-choice at her office.
Angelwater is such a PRETTY tea – what is the prettiest, most girly, flirty, friendly-looking tea you’ve ever bought? Let us know in the comments below!
