SIPDOWN! I thought I didn’t have this one in my cupboard, but I forgot I logged it under Laoshan White rather than it’s true name, Immortal Springs Laoshan White, probably did because this one has more reviews lol. Anyways, this tea was quite tasty while it lasted, a different type of white tea that is almost like Laoshan Green but just a bit nuttier and lighter and not quite as beany. Tonight was especially nutty tasting, bordering a bit on bitter due to it being the last bits of tea in the bag. But still delicious, probably can get a few more steeps out of it if I want as well, have had 4 between me and the guy. A nice, different white tea profile, and I am very happy I had the chance to try this one while it was available! See previous notes :)

Yes it has a relaxing but grounding way about it, I love the freshness, but I’ve had that bag since like last year I think, it was time to let it go unfortunately

Bio

Hello all, I’m a newly graduated electrical engineer as of 2013 (read:NERD :D), who is a bit obsessed with tea! I discovered loose tea in 2011, DAVIDsTEA in 2012 and it took off from there. I really started drinking/enjoying tea because it’s excellent to take to class in the morning and because I can’t handle coffee! (unless it’s a really good cappuccino or latte haha)

I enjoy a variety of herbal, white, green, oolong and black teas. I have also tried a few pu’erhs and matcha I am a bit sensitive to caffeine, but I find that in moderation I can still indulge in black teas and matcha.

Oh, and I have a severe peanut allergy and try to avoid most other nuts, just to be safe. Limits my tea choices a bit, but that’s ok. However I recently tried almonds and found out I can eat them, so I have been trying a few teas with them in them.

(as of 04/19/13)

95+: Absolute favorite, will try to always have it in stock, and when I don’t I pine over it!
90-94: Awesome teas, will probably purchase again a few times
80-89: Very good tea, may restock at some point
70-79: happy to have tried and will gladly finish, but not restock
60-69: not horrible, but not the best, will finish if I have some though
50-59: not a favorite, probably will have a tough time finishing the bag
-50: yuck. I don’t want to have it ever again.

I am happy to say that my caffeine intolerance seems to be subsiding! This is allowing me to try a wider variety of teas :)
