4 Tasting Notes


Not too much of a fan of this tea hot; it’s a tea that smells delicious, but the taste is not up to par. This tea is definitely more of an herbal tea to me, because there is VERY little oolong in it. Good for if you want the strawberry, but not so good if you’re looking for good flavored oolong.

Going to try cold brewing it and see how it tastes iced!

Okay guys, this is definitely my go-to, keep constantly restocked, favourite oolong tea in my cupboard.

It is the perfect tea if you like medium strong teas because it is the perfect amount of creamy and smooth, but it is not overwhelming at all with a very slight floral note. It’s a nice tea to drink at any time of the day, because it is heavy enough for a morning tea, and light enough as an afternoon tea as well. I love it.

I highly recommend making this tea in a teapot to allow the leaves to fully unfurl and get the most out of its depth of flavour. I also use less than the recommended amount per 8oz of water because of how much this tea delivers once the leaves unfurl. My favourite part of this tea is how it tastes better with each steep. But doesn’t fail at all to deliver on the first steep, either. The 2nd to 5th steep are its strong points, and my favourites because you can really taste the creaminess of this tea.

This is a tea I love having when I’m looking to just sit and relax, and enjoy a simple tea.

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.
