I used the sweet organic culinary plant called Folgate for my tea buds . A nice cup of Lavender tea can help you to relax and it is good for your digestive system. This same bud can also be used in your favorite recipe. I use it in making my famous Lavender Butter Cookies. I recommend when using it in a recipe that you grind it fine like ground sage and add it to either the creamy or flour part of the recipe first so it blends evenly. Whether you are using it for a cup of tea or in your recipe the end result is the same fantastic.
