That Time I Put Soap in my Coffee

I’ve been avoiding lavender in the grocery store for a long time. I see it hanging out by the other herbs, and I shudder. I can’t wrap my head around eating something that reminds me of soap. Isn’t eating soap punishment?

I was recently encouraged to jump on board the honey-lavendar bandwagon by making this coffee.  It’s lavender-infused honey  that is drizzled into your favorite iced coffee and topped with your choice of creamer or milk. I can assure it that it doesn’t taste like soap, which is good.

Soap in my mouth = punishment.

Lavender honey iced coffee in my mouth = heaven.
