Sipdown, 130. Thanks again to Angel and Teavivre for this sample, which was getting up there in age.

I had this tea this afternoon while I was working. I had a particularly early morning today, so I was quite tired and I wanted a white tea to perk me up and make me focused. This worked really well. Forget about white tea relaxing you, for me it definitely perks me up, especially a really nice white tea like this. Not sure if an unflavored white has a place in my cupboard, but it’s something to consider (once it decreases a bit more).

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
