I found this to be a pleasant-tasting tea. It was delicate and smooth, and I really liked the taste but I’m not really sure if the bloom opened properly. The silver needles opened up but the flower inside stayed tightly furled. I will have to try it again to see if I get a different result.

The second steep tasted lovely, but it didn’t have any effect on the peony.

My love of tea began when I walked into a shop one day and they were giving out samples of jasmine silver needles. It was absolutely gorgeous, and I have been addicted to tea ever since. Jasmine silver needles remains my favourite tea to this day.

I think my favourite types are white teas and oolongs, though I will pretty much drink anything.

Aside from tea, I’m into Star Wars, music, furniture, food, Lilly Dache hats and vintage clothing.
