drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA
687 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.

Bio

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.

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

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