For those who know me, they know the love I have for lavender. It has pretty much reached obsession status if I’m going to be honest with myself. Doesn’t matter what it is — lavender milk tea, lavender latte, lavender macarons, lavender… ANYTHING! You can be sure that if I see it on the menu, there’s no chance of getting me to try anything else.
You already know that I love to try things. But coffee shops are actually my favorite type of place to check out. The more hipster it is, the better because they will most likely have something unusual on the menu. And lavender usually falls under that category because it’s pretty darn hipster.
So imagine my surprise when I was at the mall the other day and decided to stop by the Nordstrom EBar to get my usual honey almond latte, when I saw LAVENDER CHAI. It was under their hot beverage menu but the barista said she could put it over ice. And let me tell you, it did not disappoint. This was the perfect lavender drink. Just the right amount of lavender flavor, and the right amount of sweetness, with a touch of chai. Oh, Nordstrom, you know what you’re doing. After an unexpected shopping spree, that was the perfect way to end my day.
I think I may have found a new reason to go to the mall.
