We go to a Lavender Festival every year in Oak Ridge, Tennessee. This year I bought lavender plants for my front beds, and they grew very well, but have not flowered yet.
However, I bought a huge bag of dried lavender blossoms and discovered this way to use some of them.
Any black or green tea can be used, but I like the Darjeeling best.
