Lavenders are usually regarded as summer-blooming flowers, but some lavender plants bloom early and can be harvested in early spring. Others are late bloomers, with blooms opening up in the middle of summer and lasting until the end of the season. This is why creating a collection of lavender drinks in spring and summer is an excellent way to retain customers and entice potential ones. 

Because of their beautiful pastel purple color, lavender drinks are aesthetic creations that are absolutely perfect for taking photos of and uploading on social media. These limited-edition drinks can then help increase your presence on social media with the help of your customers. Best of all, they are pretty quick and easy to make, and you would only need a few boba supplies and ingredients.
