A member of the mint plant family, lavender has a unique and distinctive flavour that separates it from other species of mint.
Lavender has a deliciously distinctive fragrance and flavour. Native to the mountainous regions of the Mediterranean, Spain and Portugal, aromatic lavender grows best in dry, sunny locations. The short lavender shrub, can grow to a height of 60cm.
Dry lavender provides a richer aroma when infused in hot water.
Often used for its calming effect, lavender is also a relaxing, caffeine free infusion for the evenings.
