Information: An old French saying has it that to spend an afternoon in Provence is to spend an afternoon in heaven itself. The reason for this lies in its altitude above the Mediterranean, crisp clean air and lush foliage. Provence literally teems with gardens, pastures and woodlands. A walk down one of its many country roads will have you stopping to pick wild strawberries, herbs, spices and especially flowers. The abundance of both wild and cultivated flowers growing along the roadside gives the very air of our Lavender Berry Rooibos the aroma of a natural perfumery. In a word, Lavender Berry Rooibos is an intoxicating and tranquil herbal blend. (Ok, that was 2 words, but it helps illustrate our next point!) That we decided to replicate the experience of a walk in Provence by developing a tea that is at once heady, full of floral character and superbly mellow. We believe that this blend of caffeine-free Rooibos and fresh Lavender does just the trick. We also believe you will find it to have a certain je ne sais quois that will inspire you to sit back, close your eyes and dream of an afternoon in the sunshine.
