Let’s Have Tea : Buddha’s Blend, flavoured white, DAVIDsTEA


Never before have I wished so fervently that “smellovision” technology existed for the Internets.  This little tea smells so beautiful, I fell madly in love at first whiff.


The problem with the Buddha’s Blend, is that like so many beautiful things, it is impossibly high maintenance.  The lovely young man who sold it to me gave me perfect directions; he was very clear about the consequences of not following the preparation exactly as prescribed.  But honestly, making a good cup of tea should not be rocket science. “I’m a doctor not a teaologist!”

Suffice to say that I am no closer to finding nirvana, not in a cup, not under a bodhi tree.  I made multiple attempts and failed miserably each time.  It either tasted either like nothing or like bitter ick.  I won’t be trying this one again but it sure smelled pretty.
