Versailles. The very mention of the famous chateau built by the King of France Louis XIV conjures up images of unbelievable opulence. Early in his reign Louis XIV moved his royal court from Paris to the countryside and began construction of the chateau. Work on the structure began in 1664 and continued almost until his death in 1715. And why did it take so long you may ask? Well, Versailles is big - very big! The chateau has more than 2,000 windows, 700 rooms filled with thousands of paintings, tapestries, sculptures, and pieces of furniture, 1250 fireplaces, 67 staircases and is surrounded by more than 1,800 acres of parkland.

Louis XIV's life in the palace was extremely regimented. Nothing was left to chance since as King, he was considered second only to God, and deserved only the best. Subsequently, at Versailles, there were rules for everything. (This is where our inspiration for this tea blend comes in.) Louis XIV was always known for his fondness for fresh lavender from the French countryside. He was so fond of it that he demanded to be bathed in lavender scented water every morning. In 1658, he even issued a royal decree ruling exactly how lavender was to be used to scent soap, the "Edit du Roi Pour le Manufactures du Savon" - the man seriously loved his Lavender. So, when it came time to blend a tea in honor of this ancient royal, it only seemed fitting that we blend it with the King's favorite flower.

Aside from being a lover of lavender, Louis XIV was also revered at the time as quite a statesman. So, since it is no secret that over the years there has been no love lost between the French and the English, we thought we'd do our part for French statesmanship by blending our fresh lavender with a British favorite, Earl Grey. When brewed, this tea has a delicate floral bouquet that compliments the citrus character of Earl Grey's bergamot beautifully. Truly an exceptional tea.

NiceReview by rachel

I only discovered Earl Grey within the last two years or so, but really fell in love, so decided to try this lavender one. I did like it, but I thought it did have a very strong floral note. I suppose that is to be expected in this tea and if you are looking for a tea like that, this will be right up your alley. It was very enjoyable, but I think I'm more a fan of the original.

A Lovely Light Lavender Review by Caitlin

This was a fantastic and mild earl grey (despite being my favorite tea, I find that some earl grey teas brew too strong and become unenjoyable). The lavender was present and added a beautiful floral aroma but was overpowering or jolting. I drink tea without sweetener, but this would be great with a raw orange blossom honey.

Delicate FlavorReview by Chuck

On first taste I couldn't detect the lavender at all and was mildly disappointed. I lowered the water temperature and increased the steep time the second time around and that seemed to do the trick. The tea is wonderfully floral with a mellow taste and aroma. Most enjoyable. (Posted on 3/28/2017)
Perfect teaReview by Suzanne

I am a big earl grey fan and love lavender - so infusing these 2 together was right up my alley. It is smooth and the lavender is not to pungent. One of my favorite evening teas! (Posted on 1/27/2017)
Makes Delicious Ice TeaReview by Kim

This makes a wonderful cup of hot tea but I found it also made a delicous glass of iced tea.
This is my recipe:

Easy Lavender Iced Tea

1 cup brewed Lavender Earl Grey Tea
1 tablespoon frozen lemonade concentrate
1/2 cup ice

Directions
1) Steep tea for 5 minutes following the directions on the package. Let cool to room temperature.
2) Add the lemonade concentrate and stir.
3) Pour over ice and serve.
Note: This ice tea goes really well with any almond flavoured icebox cookie. (Posted on 12/29/2016)
A little too strong, too savoryReview by Michelle
Rating
I ordered several black tea samples from the Whistling Kettle, and this one was a great surprise - the sample size is very generous and will make at least 2 pots of tea/two cups per pot. I love lavender in food, but I found it a little too strong in this tea. I ended up blending it with Early Grey Cream for a delicious mixture that I am very happy with. (Posted on 7/15/2016)
Fragrantly FloralReview by Melissa

This tea is one of the most light and floral teas I have ever enjoyed. The stimulating earl grey we are all familiar infused with the tranquility that only Lavender can create. I live in Seattle Washington and have yet to find a Lavender Tea that comes close to the smooth and aromatic nature of this tea. If you are looking for a unique and aromatic tea, this one is for you.

Love this tea!Review by PCadby

This is the best lavender EG I have found. I sampled many, many teas from all over the world and found this one to have the best balance of lavender and bergamot. I end up buying it by the pound since I drink so much and have never been disappointed. The process for blending must be precise as it is always the same, unlike some other teas. The service I have received from WK has been fantastic. A very happy customer! (Posted on 4/29/2016)
