As the days until Christmas continue to dwindle we seem to be getting busier and busier and that means that we unfortunately have very little time for tea reviewing! Luckily, DAVIDsTEA seems to be in the habit of repeating a few teas from last year’s advent calendar, as was the case with today’s tea: Buddha’s Blend. So if you’d like to see what Stacey’s family thought back in 2012, click here and if you want to hang out with Brooke and her Mom while they enjoyed this brew, click here. Or click both (we really recommend clicking both). Here we go, bring on day 15!
Tea: Buddha’s Blend
Description: 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, natural and articifial flavouring
Steeping Instructions: 1.25 tsp, 80°C, 4-5 minutes
We did manage to get a few quick texts in throughout our busy days, here were our thoughts on this flavourful white tea:
Stacey: Mmm, fruity and light this tea is a good one! What do you think?
Brooke: My lab and I agree, it smells peachy but tastes like flowers (Stacey: And they would be right, made with jasmine pearls and white hibiscus blossoms. They sure now their flowers! They are biologists after all).
Stacey: Agreed, I’ve always liked this one. It’s one of my Mom’s favourite’s too. Bloody expensive though.
Brooke: Yeah, Buddha would not be pleased.
Stacey: Darn white tea! Why must you taste so good but cost so much!
Brooke: Because capitalism.
Stacey: Additive, light, and rule 34. Really, just all around a good tasty EP. 9 and 10.
Brooke: Misty is exactly the same as last year and I have absolve lute nothing new to add. Tate, smells like peaches, taste like flowers. Too expensive. Elan 10.
And they were go, a third tea review for Buddha’s Blend. Now to go do some bouldering (that’s fancy talk for rock climbing without a rope, we’re so adventurous)! Goodnight fellow readers!
Until next tea,
Stacey and Brooke
