From DAVIDsTEA

Heaven can’t wait

We don’t like to brag, but we’re pretty sure we just found the key to achieving nirvana. It’s easier than you might think – you’re actually just a cup away. You start with a fresh, delicate mix of white and green tea. Then you sprinkle in a few jasmine pearls for their sweet, floral perfume. Next, you add the unexpected fruity aroma of some beautiful white hibiscus blossoms. Finally? You sit back, relax and take a sip. Heavenly…

Ingredients: White tea, green tea, jasmine pearls, white hibiscus blossoms, articifial flavouring*.

Lovely blend of white and green tea, though the green tends to overpower the white. Perfect balance of floral notes, not too much of anything. I really enjoy it but can’t help but think it’d be better as a straight white blend, rather than having the addition of the green.

I also wish this was simply a white blend or, at least, that the ratio of white to green was greater.

This tea smelled amazing in store but when I went home and made a cup up I absolutely hated it. It left a weird after fast in my mouth, i’m not exactly sure what flavouring in the tea that I didn’t like. I have never had tried any jasmine pearls or white hibiscus blossoms in anything else before, but I am assuming one of these two things was the deal breaker for me.

Day 18 of the 24 Days of Tea

Well… a mixture of white and green, with jasmine and fruit. Interesting.

At first sniff: Fuzzy peaches!!! Like exact same smell. I do smell the notes of jasmine after the fact, not sure about the hibiscus. The green tea smell is last. I notice the leaves are curled and twisted as well.

At first steep: I failed on the steeping of this one, clearly. Steeped it at 80 for 4 mins and WOW bitter bitter and more bitter. It smells like fuzzy peaches though. I resteeped for 2 mins with more water and it was still quite bitter. I must have for once over-leafed a DavidsTea tea??? Really, that never happens. This tea has some potential, but I’m not sure I understand the strong following behind this tea. I have enough to probably try this tea another 2 times, so we’ll see. Maybe my mind will be changed.

So long my friend. I actually like this tea quite a bit. I steep it at a lower temperature and it’s sweet and floral to me but I have a soft spot for hibiscus. This tea is great for soothing my throat when I’m feeling under the weather or comforting me on a cold night. I finished this up today and I was considering on purchasing more, but I have some white teas from Butiki coming in. From what I have heard, Stacy will probably infinitely top this tea.

I love this tea! This tea opened the door to the world of floral teas for me. I guess I just always assumed that I wouldn’t like floral teas, but David’s had this on as the tea of the day one day and I loved it. It doesn’t taste floral to me at all, it just tastes like mandarin for some reason. And I’ve found that all floral teas taste fruity to me. This one is just really light and refreshing. It’s my favourite tea iced. The only problem is that when I make it, it’s always slightly bitter, I guess I just have to play around with it a bit more. It’s never bitter when I have it at the store.

This is one of my absolute favorite teas. It is amazing both iced and hot. It smells fruity but doesn’t actually contain any fruit. I’ve found that if let steep for too long it will become bitter quickly. Steeping it for 30 seconds lets you get the delicious flavor without having to deal with the bitterness.

Buddha’s Blend, yeah Davids should look at renaming this green/white tea mixture to Fuzzy Peaches! Anyone who enjoyed the candies as a kid can tell you this tea smells EXACTLY like Fuzzy Peaches, the taste isn’t too far off either.

Dry the tea has small leaves, only by appearance, and white hibiscus flowers add the contrast to this otherwise dark colored tea. As mentioned the smell is identical to that of fuzzy peaches candies. Brewed the tea is extremely light and clear still retaining that slight fuzzy peach smell.

The final beverage is a tasty tea, sweet but not overly, may or may not require sweeteners depending on your taste. Certainly a tea that you could drink all day long and not get tired of, everyone I know that has tired it so far has enjoyed it, even my 4 year old niece.

Overall this is certainly a tea that you should have in your collection, its a great tea to have when you need an ‘emotional’ pick me up and the soft sweet flavor is hard to get tired of. I haven’t tried but it would probably make an awesome iced tea.

CAUTION: This tea does NOT like being over steeped and certainly does not like warm water. First time I brewed it I used water at about 86*C and it steeped for probably 2.5 minutes and the tea was actually fairly bitter, very sensitive tea.

No. Nononononono.

Uggggh. This was the fly in the tea after so many wonderful steeps today. No no no noooooo. It smelled so good in store too, with just a hint of fuzzy peaches and pears.

But ugh. Its all astringency and hibiscus and overpowering florals and bitter bitter bitter. Uggggh. I wish I could like this tea but no. Its not happening. The aftertaste is delicious, but the avalanche of bitterness you must endure to get there is too much for this owl to take. Ugh.

This tea is definitely one of my favourites at the moment; I could drink this all day hot or iced. Sometimes, I find myself let down by some teas because they smell lovely and delicious, but the taste is not up to that same standard. But, Buddha’s Blend from DavidsTea smells good, AND tastes good. A big plus for me.

I love floral blend teas, and this one is also the perfect blend of white and green tea. You definitely have to watch your steep time and water temp to avoid a bitter aftertaste on this tea because of those two. I love that they used jasmine pearls because the fullness of the unfurled leaves adds the perfect amount of flavour to a light white tea. I’m assuming it’s the white hibiscus and.. something else (?) that adds a light fruity taste to it. It makes it, for me, a tea I can drink 5 cups of in one sitting. It’s refreshing, but still a strong tea.

I prefer strong tea, so for me, this tea tastes best when I make it in my teapot because it allows everything in the blend to steep fully and evenly. I avoid steeping it in my to-go tea tumblr, because the temperature of the water stays very hot, and the small space for steeping just isn’t ideal in my opinion for this tea.

Overall, I love this tea. I highly recommend this to anyone. I also think it’s a lovely tea for those who are just getting into drinking tea, and don’t know where to start.
