This seems to be one of David’s staple teas, but I never had a chance to get a sample till now. Dry, it smells deliciously of peach and tropical fruit, plus some hints of jasmine. I am pretty sensitive to jasmine, but fortunately this is not very strong, though there is just a tinge of chemical-ness in the flavor. David’s markets this under their white tea section, so I was a little surprised to see how much of the mix is actually green tea. By the look of the mix, I’d guess it’s 2/3 white, 1/3 green. But the green tea is what’s coming out most in the flavor.
I feel like this has almost exactly the same flavor profile as their Three Wishes tea. Three Wishes had some rose petals, but these didn’t come through much in the taste. The main difference was its black/green base instead of this white/green base, but both had strong peach, mango, and jasmine notes. I quite liked Three Wishes, but it was a challenge to steep; if you got the water just a little too hot or left it just slightly too long, the floral aspects would turn it into a nasty mess. Unfortunately, Buddha’s Blend seems like it would be much the same, or perhaps even MORE picky, what with the white base. So much as I love peach and mango, I don’t think I’ll be stocking this.
