Ceylon black tea, lavender flowers
A distinctive blend of black tea and lavender, revered lavender tea is relaxing and soothing. The ancient Greeks called Lavender nardus, after the Syrian city of Naarda and was commonly called Nard. Lavender was one of the holy herbs used to prepare the Holy Essence and Nard, or ‘spikenard’ as mentioned in the ‘Song of Solomon’. Beautiful liquor with a rich floral aroma, this is a tea to wrap up a day of much labor.
Sri Lanka, formerly known as Ceylon produces mainly black, or fully oxidized teas. The island nation of Sri Lanka is small, but she benefits from a perfect geography with an enviable microclimate that produces a complex set of temperature, moisture and wind, so the flavours and character of the teas produced vary greatly. Roleaf’s Black Tea is sourced from Nuwara Eliya, the best-known of Sri Lanka’s tea-growing districts. It is the most mountainous, and has the highest average elevation. Combined with low temperature, this region produces very exquisite teas.
Some of our black teas are from the remote Uva district which is exposed to the winds of both northeast and southwest monsoons. The climate produces tea with a special, distinct character and exotically aromatic flavour. The mellow, smooth taste of Uva tea is easily distinguished. Roleaf Revered Lavender is blended with dried lavender flowers from Huocheng county, northwest China’s Xinjiang, known for its pleasant floral aroma and soothing properties. Introduced in 1965 from France, Huocheng is located on the same latitude as Provence in France, allowing them to share the ideal similar climate, meteorological and soil conditions. It is the largest lavender production base, accounting for 97 percent of China’s lavender output and the third largest in the world. This aromatic perennial shrub is a herb with thin branches with refined straight leaves. It grows well with sunshine, some humidity and sandy soils.
