2 tasting notes

Relaxed this evening with the husband drinking a pot of one of my all time favorites, Silver Needle. I generally drink this tea without mixing it (as I am completely drawn to its delicate flavors of honey and grassy notes) however, tonight I mixed it with a little Peach Tranquillity. It was a nice mix, but I felt that the peach over powered the flavors that I enjoy savoring in the Silver Needle. I think I will stick to steeping it alone …

This was my first blooming tea and I was truly delighted!. This smooth, delicate white tea released a flavorful, yet subtle peach finish; and the marigold flower unfolded beautifully. I steeped the tea ball three times without losing flavor or strength. Looking forward to having this again … I think I may even dream about this tea tonight!
