Cottonwood Mansion's Heritage Tea Blend

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.

It was a delicious creamy tea with light floral notes.

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!



  1. The creamy tea sounds wonderful, Margie, and so pretty in your teacup. The mansion is beautiful and I can picture you in that cute purple car!

  2. Oh that tea does sound good. I like vanilla flavored teas. That mansion...WOW and WOW! Girl, I would love to be sporting around in that old car. Too cool. Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. Creamy lavender tea sounds intriguing, Margie. It would indeed be wonderful to visit that mansion!

  4. Beautiful teacup! Amazing place too. The tea looks great. Hugs.

  5. Yep, it's time to put the kettle on again as the temps get cooler. I had a cup of Scottish Thistle tea as I watched the Queen's procession this week.

    It seemed so appropriate, ya know?

    Happy weekend, friend ...

  6. Love the sound of creamy lavender tea.☕
    It would be interesting to visit that mansion!

    Hugs and blessings, Margie 🌹
