I've been on the hunt for a creamy lavender tea that is NOT a Lavender Earl Grey. So I was excited when I found out that one of my favourite tea companies, Monarch Tea Co., created Cottonwood Mansion's very own tea blend.
Heritage Blend is a vanilla cream black tea with lavender buds and rose
petals, and is inspired by Victorian tea blends." (Source)
Sipping the tea in my Royal Albert Lavender Rose teacup.
It was a delicious creamy tea with light floral notes.
Cottonwood Mansion Museum
The Cottonwood Mansion Museum is a country estate that was built in 1860-70 and converted into a "living museum that encourages the public to experience the heritage of the Victorian era".
Cottonwood Mansion offers special events such as the Classic Car Show (love the purple car!!!), Farmer's Market, Craft & Tractor Show, and afternoon tea. The Mansion and green space can be rented for wedding and private events.
I wished that I lived closer so that I could join one of their charming afternoon tea events!
