102 Tasting Notes
Dry, this tea has a nice peachy and floral aroma. Steeped, it doesn’t leave much of an impression on me. It’s pleasant to drink but somehow bland at the same time.
I can’t help but compare Buddha’s Blend to Monk’s Blend every time, just because of their similar names. Monk’s Blend is unquestionably the better of the two. It’s too bad that DAVIDsTEA discontinued it…
This tea had quite the strong smell when I opened the tin, so I was expecting the worst. However, it’s not bad. The chocolate flavour does not particularly stand out, but at least my cup was not bitter like some other reviews stated. I’m reminded of a really dark piece of chocolate in the 90-99% range. I was out of milk, or else I would have mixed some in. Maybe next time.
Edit: Curiously, I looked back at my previous tasting notes, and I had rated DAVIDsTEA’s other chocolate teas poorly in the past. Compared to Hot Chocolate and Dark Chocolate Delight, this tea sat really well with me.
Flavors: Dark Chocolate
It’s been so long since I’ve been able to log in to this website that I’ve forgotten most of the teas I’ve tried in the past several months.
This is what I’ve been drinking recently because I received a box on my birthday. The artificial flavouring is apparent, but it’s not the worst instant milk tea I’ve tasted. I can’t – or won’t – go out to get bubble tea during this pandemic, so this is satisfactory. The blueberry flavor milk tea is supposed to taste like The Alley’s in-store Royal Milk Tea.
Flavors: Blueberry, Milk
A nice, sweet dessert tea to enjoy when I’m in the right mood. It’s not the prettiest tea, because I could gradually see something floating to the top as my tea cooled, but at least the flavour lives up to the name. I seemed to receive a tin with lots of candied pineapple, so occasionally the taste of pineapple overpowered that of the lavender, but not always. I might add some milk in the future for even more creaminess, but no extra sugar is required with this tea.
Flavors: Lavender, Pineapple, Sugar
