Margaret's Fine Imports
Ingredients: Luxury green and white tea, rose petals, lavender, hibiscus.
It's Game of Thrones tea week during The 23 Teas of October!
This tea really is a breath of heaven. Light and floral like a brunch in Highgarden with Lady Olenna.
The rose petals and lavender complement each other well, and the white and green teas balance the strong flavors a bit. Warning, the lavender becomes more and more noticeable after having a good number of cups... fine for me since I love lavender. Highgarden Heaven tea is fantastic iced in the afternoon.
Hot: 2 min, 2 tsp tea, 8oz water
Iced: 20 sec, 3 tsp tea, 8oz water over ice
The bright pink and breathy lavender colors are gorgeous together.
I purchased some pure lavender from Margaret's to go along with it. Amazing color.
The lavender looks beautiful in this white tin by RIEH, purchased at Margaret's for only $2.35.
Bonus! You can use lavender in baking! Use the whole pieces and do not grind them up or it will get bitter. They can also be used in beautiful homemade soaps.
Come back tomorrow for a taste of the Westeros high seas.

Not everyone agrees on floral tastes in tea. Do you love it or can you just not stand it?
