drank Buddha's Blend by DAVIDsTEA
4 tasting notes

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.
