99 times out of 100 lavender gives me a migraine. Usually that would be a prohibitive enough reason not to drink lavender tea. Today it isn’t. Today I’m drinking Eli’s Colorado Lavender Folgate, and I’m willing to hurt myself for the experience.
Lavender also is incredibly efficient when it comes to seeking out and assassinating one’s sinuses. xD
Colorado Lavender Folgate has one of the strangest liquor color’s I’ve brewed in ages: blueberry violet (not that that’s a turn off because it totally isn’t). Unlike other lavender tisanes I’ve brewed in the past, Colorado Lavender Folgate has a very temporal aroma. The scent of a wildflower thicket on a shady afternoon dog walk briefly assails the nose. Additionally, in flavor, Colorado Lavender Folgate is unlike other lavender tisanes. Although the main ingredient is lavender, a taste not unlike clover flower buds is what we initially end up. The aftertaste of lavender marches like a nearly out of control 70s Voodoo band along the top of the tongue, then lingers on the roof of the mouth.
Did i mention that I’ve been suffering from mild schizophrenia this morning? ;) Maybe you should take this post with a grain of salt.

Mean score – 94% That seriously has to be a record for a tisane. Either Eli is a genius (which we’ve already established), or else my sense of perception is completely fubar today.
