Wild Heart: Smoky Lavender Oolong Tea

Smoky Lavender Oolong Tea

Rated 4.4 out of 5
Based on 132 reviews

Tastes Like: lavender, warm hay, peat
Feels Like: afternoon in provence

Welcome to the perfumed roads of Provence. This is an earthy lavender black tea with a whisper of smoke. The floral oolong base harmonizes beautifully with lavender blossom. A touch of smoked black tea grounds this blend in a wild garden. This tea has a rich malty flavor. Its gently slatey mouthfeel calls to mind a quiet ramble along a stone garden path in the Southern French countryside. In the distance, there’s a faint scent of a fire burning for the evening grill. A splash of milk sweetens the floral notes. It has glorious floral flavor when iced.

A tea for lovers of lavender and wild gardens.

📝 Blender's Notes

For years I've been contemplating how to give lavender that August magic. It took time and imagination because lavender is one of those potent flowers that can overwhelm other flavors.

 

I selected a full-bodied oolong tea base and a touch of smoked lapsang souchong black tea to evoke a garden bed with just a pop of lavender. This extraordinary oolong blend drinks like a black tea with light floral top notes and just a hint of smoke. Earl Grey fans will appreciate this flavor.

 

As always, I enjoy the challenge of creating a tea that will surprise and delight your senses. So, even if you shy away from oolong teas or lavender blends, or anything remotely "smoky," I hope you give this a try.

Full permission (and encouragement) to explore the variations of flavor this gorgeous blend has to offer. Try a splash of your favorite milk. Give it a kiss of honey. It's also phenomenal iced.

 

I can't wait to hear what you think of this blend.

Intricate floral flavors

I really enjoyed this tea and it has a strong lavender flavor but unfortunately I could not taste much of the smokiness. Regardless, it’s a complex and lovely oolong tea that I enjoyed with a dash of honey.

This has grown on me

I wasn't a huge fan of the first cup. It was okay, but I wasn't in love with it. Still, I'd bought it because after months one of my favorite flavors is still out of stock, so I kept drinking it. And over the course of a few days, I've begun to notice all the complexities beneath the top notes, the best way (for me) to drink it, lightly sweetened but otherwise as is, and have come to very much enjoy it. It has definitely grown on me and I quite like it now. Might even be in love with it by the end of the bag if this trend continues!

Smoky Lavender Evenings

Wild Heart is what it says- a distinctly smoky oolong with a hint of lavender, going down well in the evening or afternoon. A nice tea.

Unique flavor

The flavor is very botanical with heavy notes of lavender and earthy hay. Definitely has a country feel with every sip.
