drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA
721 tasting notes

Ah Buddha’s Blend. Highly acclaimed. And finally yesterday my store had some! They had only a wee bit left but I got there just in time :)

It smells faintly like peaches (not real peaches, but not a completely fake scent either). I’ve smelled that before in Three Wishes. I’m guessing perhaps that’s the jasmine? That’s the ingredient they have in common. So perhaps I shouldn’t say I don’t care for floral teas, just not rose ones.

I did a 30 second steep since it’s a white tea and I’ve been getting great results with that trick. I’m enjoying it. Nice and light. Not overwhelming, but not underwhelming. I could see my fiance really enjoying this one.

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), science, travel, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not generally in the mood for them. I only truly enjoy subtly fruity flavoured greens. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino).

Pu’erhs I’m working on at a snail’s pace, but so far I’m not loving them. Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Coconut, creaminess, yogurt, toffee, cacao (true dark chocolate flavour), rhubarb.

Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss.
