Delicious as tea or cordial

Made the most delicious tea, added some honey (you could use maple syrup/agave instead) and a couple drops fresh lemon juice. Placed rest of cupful in fridge; the MOST delicious cold tea/cordial! I also made tissane from the edible rose petals which made the purest tasting rose tissane that I have ever tasted; plus all the goodness! Having a good day ☺️

Great tea and very well priced

This tea was amazing and I have mixed with a very high quality Assam and Namring Darjeeling in my own secret blend to dampen the bergamot flavours. I will use this store again soon. Thoroughly recommend.

Great - bought primarily to add to homemade cat toys in place of catnip, the cats are definitely keen on it so far. 25g turned out to be more than I was expecting - shown here in a 190ml / 8oz jar, with tealight for scale. There was quite a lot of powder in the packet where I'm guessing it got battered during shipping, but that's fine for my purposes. Hopefully going to try it in tea soon as well, it seems like excellent quality.
