Lavender Flower- Organically Cultivated
What's the difference between the Extra, Select, and Super grades? All grades of our French lavender possess a very fragrant aroma and distinct flavors that become more subtle when used in an infusion, such as a tea. They’re all perfectly suitable for culinary use, crafts, potpourri, and for therapeutic use such as in body care products like soap, oils, lotions, and shampoos. There are slight variations of color and aroma between each grade.
Select grade has a more pronounced floral flavor with hints of grass, but less bitter. It possesses a subtly fresh, sweeter flavor that works well as a culinary ingredient and in loose teas and tea bags. It has a medium deepness of lavender color, less stems and leaves. The deeper color also means Select lavender will look nice in clear and open containers of potpourri and other herbal blends.
Super grade lavender has a citrus-like taste, hints of sweetness and rosemary, and a stronger floral flavor. It is brighter and subtly peppery when raw. The color is rich and vibrant and contains the least amount of stems and leaves. With the abundance of flowers and buds, Super grade lavender is perfect for loose teas (especially if you intend to make a tea with only lavender, not as a blend) and in any application that calls for open or clear containers, such as potpourri, where the colors are sure to be prominent.
