Since the description included with the tea did not recommend a steeping time, I went with my standard infusion time for white teas, (two minutes and thirty seconds) and kept the water at 160 (just in case)

Unlike the previous blends I’ve had from the Asylum Emporium, this tea is rather delicate on the palate. I’m not very fond of white teas in general, but this blend surprised me.

The peppermint is the more dominant flavor of the blend, and initially overpowers the chrysanthemum and silver needle. But the added chrysanthemums help smooth out the sharpness of the peppermint. The silver needle base adds a very subtle, buttery quality to the tea, which pleasantly lingers after each sip.

Overall, this is a delightful blend.
I would recommend sipping to wind down after a stressful day.

(the other good news is that, while the tea is a bit pricey, it re-steeps quite well)

I drink tea like it’s 1841
(but please no cream and sugar)

I have an affection for floral teas, anything remotely resembling vanilla, and a strong aversion to smoky teas (lapsang souchong I’m looking at you, you foul death-tasting beast).

i like sitting on tables and counters.

i love the smell of old books.

swings+music+tea= heaven
