What Are the Best Floral Teas?

Floral teas grace your senses with whispers of spring and summer that dance in delight across your palate. From lavender to chamomile, rose to jasmine, elderflowers, and more, these fine fragrances will leave you breathing deep and drifting away to a place that’s serene and a bit playful.

Whether you’re looking to escape from the day, to settle in before the night’s sleep, or simply wrap up in the comfort of some good friends, tea, and food, floral teas will be the perfect accompaniment!

The best floral teas will leave you breathing deep and drifting off into daydreams. Here are some of our favorites!

Lavender Daydream White Tea

Our Lavender Daydream white tea leaves you feeling rather heavenly with its infusion of lavender and rose florals with a beautiful base of mango white tea.

Since white tea is the least processed of the three types of teas (between white, green, and black), it retains the highest level of antioxidants. Bonus for you, right? White tea may also help reduce the risk of heart disease, help you lose weight, and may help combat the signs of aging.

The layers of these flavors balance beautifully with our mango white tea which makes for a perfect cuppa to simply enjoy when you’re in need of an escape, or to pair for a little soiree!

Slowly Unwind Herbal Tea

Are you looking to Slowly Unwind? Well, that’s exactly what this cuppa has in store for you! There is no shortage of goodness wrapped up in this berry-flavored linden tea; lovely linden flowers and a sprinkling of elderflowers, balanced with a handful of mixed berries, raspberries leaves, rose petals, and to top it off—strawberry and blueberry essence!

This tea is a perfect midday or midnight delight as it’s caffeine-free, so you won’t be stuff feeling any of the jitters you do with caffeinated drinks.

Wondering what linden tea is?

Linden tea comes from the common lime tree, but not the fruit-bearing lime tree we would naturally tend to associate it with. Truth be told, it’s not even closely related to the lime tree. Common names for it are the European Linden, European Lime, and European Basswood. Linden tea is made from the creamy yellow flowers that blossom on the tree.

When brewed, as I hope you soon taste, you’ll realize its taste and aroma is sweet and floral—enticing and divine. It reminds me of spring and fairytales, meadows, and far-off lands!

There are benefits to linden tea as well—even better, right?

Linden tea is an antioxidant cocktail neutralizing free radicals. It can also help type-2 diabetes, cancer, reduce anxiety, and reduce blood pressure. A couple more benefits? It can help promote restful sleep and aid in weight loss and proper digestion.

So—drink, rest, and take respite—and soon this linden flower tea with elderflower will be your new calm moment favorite!

Calm Chamomile Bloom Herbal Tea

Looking for a little nourishment for the soul? Look no further than our chamomile and lavender tea with rose! Our Calm Chamomile Bloom herbal tea is bright and cheery, yet grounded and sweet. It’s fresh and reminiscent of a barefoot walk in the garden, providing a necessary respite from the world.

Chamomile is a beautiful gift and one that comes with many a prized possession in its healing. Drinking chamomile tea is commonly used to help many ailments such as hay fever, inflammation, muscle spasms, menstrual disorders, insomnia, ulcers, wounds, gastrointestinal disorders, rheumatic pain, and hemorrhoids.

A white floral cup of tea sits on a wooden surface, with a wooden teaspoon of Meadow Walk herbal tea sitting across the top of the cup. Loose tea leaves spill out of a bag on the left.

Meadow Walk Herbal Tea

Meadow Walk is a nature-inspired herbal tea and one I guarantee you won’t find elsewhere. It’s a one-of-a-kind inspiration and truly from field to forest and nurtured by Mother Nature. This is a blueberry herbal tea with rosemary and a green rooibos tea base. The blend of these trio creates something so unique, enchanting, and succulent—it’ll quickly become a new favorite!

Rooibos tea is caffeine-free and has a sweet nutty flavor with some of those nature-inspired earthy notes we discussed earlier. It is light, not overpowering, and has a high concentration of vitamins and minerals like calcium, iron, magnesium, and zinc. It also contains high levels of Vitamin C and antioxidants, which we all know as Kung Fu fighters for the body.

Let’s get sippin'!

Evening in the Garden Herbal Tea

Our Evening in the Garden herbal tea is a personal favorite of mine. I mean, I’ll be honest, it’s truly hard to choose as I have many, but this makes the top ten.

It’s a delightfully calming tea that is made from elderflowers, lemon peel, rose petals, honeybush tea, and a touch of vanilla essence. It’s a combination of sensual bliss that you can enjoy any time of day or night.

Elderflowers are a unique herb that's not often used in teas.

Elderflower tea does wonders to ease and soothe my mind. It is best known for its antiviral effects but is also a great antioxidant, great for the immune system, fantastic metabolism support, and great for kidney stimulation.

I promise you, the aromatic bliss and floral depth of this tea are sure to leave you in a heavenly state of mind, and definitely coming back for seconds and thirds if you’re feeling under the weather!

Floral Tea Sweeteners

Our Vanilla Sugar Dust is a perfect addition to many of our floral teas if you’re in the mood for a hint of sweetness to liven up your cuppa. It’s a simple pairing of fresh, real vanilla bean and organic sugar that doesn’t change the flavor of your tea—it only enhances ever so sweetly!

Another option I have to recommend is our Deluxe Tea Sugar. Wondering what this delightful little nugget of golden beauty is? Let me fill you in—it’s 100% amber rock cane sugar crystals. By far the best we’ve found, and because they’re small, they allow you get just the right touch of sweetness without compromising the flavor of your tea.

Orange blossom honey sticks for tea are another great choice if you’re a lover of something sweet. I love what we’ve done here with the creation of these great, on-the-go, and easy-to-use tea pairing sweeteners. We feel the delicate taste of the simple orange blossom honey is wonderful for almost any tea, from chamomile to lavender.

They’re even great on their own as a pick me up, or to help soothe a sore throat!
