A couple of weeks ago, Penny of Penny Lane Boutique contacted me about a review of her custom herbal tea blend. I promptly visited her site, and it just about charmed my socks off! Penny hand crafts natural skin care products like gentle bar soaps, soothing lotions, body wash (no sodium laureth/lauryl sulfate!), and mists. Many products contain essential oils, and some are custom designed for babies. Penny Lane Boutique also offers quality hand made candles and tea accessories. I found the tea bag carriers and tea cozies particularly irresistible!
Seriously, how cute is that?
After receiving the tea sample last week, my husband and I brewed a cup to share. The Lavender Herbal Blend Tea proved delicious. A delicate concoction of lavender, hibiscus, lemongrass, peppermint, rosehips, and orange peel, it struck both of us as soothing and calming — perfect for the end of the day. We enjoyed the floral quality and found the flavors well balanced. I am not usually an enormous fan of lavender, but I really enjoyed it in this combination.
If you’re hunting for Christmas gifts, as I am, this would be a great choice, particularly as a stocking stuffer. (To my family: pretend you never saw this post and act surprised and delighted when investigating your stockings at Christmas.)
To buy some of this tea yourself, or to investigate Penny’s other quality offerings, toddle over to Penny Lane Boutique for a little look-see.
