Not a fan of flowers in food or drink. Unfortunately, a lot of the cooking & cooking contest shows seem to think that by adding flowers to the food that they are "elevating" in it. I hope the fad passes soon.

I don't like Lavender either well at least the smell. Never ate it either. I don't drink Starbucks either.

I've grown to like lavender. As a tea drinker, I've been having a cup of lavender Earl Grey tea every night, when possible.

Also, I've tried mixed drinks that add lavender to them. We don't drink much, maybe 3 or 4 drinks a month. When we go out to eat and I notice a drink with lavender, I'll give it a try.

All that said---to each his own.

My wife grows herbs and mixes up something called herbs de provence. It's AMAZING on venison and duck breasts. It's one of my favorite rubs for game. That and a spiced coffee rub.

I don't care for the taste of lavender, but I love vanilla and that is a flower flavor. I also have no objection to hibiscus tea.

I really dislike rose water, though, even though that is a popular flavor. Just like the lavender, it tastes like soap to me, because that is what a lot of soap smells like.

I'm not a coffee drinker, but have recently gotten into drinking lavender tea. I will try the lavender coffee just to see if I like it.

It always amazes me how many Starbucks customers hate their coffee.

Believe it or not, I didn't have my first Starbuck's anything until very recently with some friends. I got just a plain coffee and it really wasn't very good. Very watery tasting. Just for the heck of it, to see what the fuss was about, I also got latte mocha caramel something or other that they were advertising as a special. Basically liquid candy you can drink. I'm thinking that's what most folks are liking at Starbucks -- the liquid candy but the coffee is terrible.

Now that said, my wife however really liked the lavender tea. So I bought her some lavender Earl Grey at the grocery. She says it's exactly the same as the Starbucks tea.
