Looking for a way to clear away the cobwebs and give your soul a fresh start? Lavender Respond to the rescue. This amazing combination of green tea and lavender offers a soothing pick-me-up that's perfect for sipping time of day. It's so good; we guarantee you're going to love it. How can we make that claim? Lavender has inspired feelings of love and calming relaxation for millennia. In India, the fragrant flowering shrub has long been associated with the Heart Chakra. (Chakra is an ancient Sanskrit word for the seven centers of spiritual energy in the body.) The Heart Chakra is the energy center of love, joy, happiness, honesty, compassion and connection with other people - it's a powerful one. Here in the West, Christian folklore has also long shown a link between lavender and love. In old England, on St. Luke's day, young women looking for a husband would sip lavender tea and sing,

St. Luke, St. Luke, be kind to me,
In my dreams, let my true love see.

Even farther back, it was said that Queen Cleopatra won the love of Marc Anthony by seducing him with perfume made from fresh lavender. (Speaking of ancient Egypt, it is interesting to note that it was along the banks of the Nile that lavender was first used as a healing herb.) From the land of the Pharaohs, lavender use spread to Greece, where it was used by ancient doctors to treat insomnia and madness and then on to ancient Rome where it was used for bathing and spiritual cleansing. (Interestingly, lavender gets its name from the Romans, specifically from the Latin word Lavare, to wash.) The Romans prized the flower for its ability to soothe the body, calm the mind and restore the spirit.

We believe you'll find that this detoxifying lavender green tea accomplishes all of the above. From the moment you drop the pressed button of tea into your cup or teapot and infuse it, your senses heighten as the fragrant notes fill the air, the first sip beckoning a second. The perfect tea for an afternoon spent in quiet self-reflection - a cup to fall in love with.
