    Cookgirl's Note:

    My favorite teahouse hangout closed "shoppe" and now I'm left with only the memories of my beloved Lavender Blue tea! I tried my best to replicate it here. Let me know how well I succeeded. Do use your fanciest teapot, tea cups and saucers for drinking your tea. Dedicated to all my Aussie, Kiwi, British, tea-drinkin' Zaar friends, et al!

      Very relaxing, and the fragrance is just divine. Next time I might try a bit of lemon in place of the cream. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT6.

      What a lovely tea, mine is made without cream as I am lactose intolerant, but it really doesn't need the cream, it's flavor is great. Made for ZWT8.

      Another ZWT review, lol. This one is for ZWT 8. Where have you been hiding this way above average little recipe? I don't recall ever seeing it before. Rest assured that I'll most certainly be visiting it again. I keep lavender and Earl Gray is tied with Darjeeling for my favorite tea. I used the cream because it seemed a proper British thing but I doubt that I'd use it for a daily cuppa. Wonderful tea, just wish I'd had some scones made to keep it company :D
