Jasmine and hibiscus are two of my favorite floral teas. DavidsTea’s Buddha’s Blend takes the best of both blends, combining these flowers with white tea, green tea and both natural and artificial flavoring for a soothing blend that makes you feel at ease (while tasting wonderful).I was surprised there is not any citrus in the ingredients, because I get that aroma from the tea, but these flavors blend really well together. White tea has a very minimal amount of caffeine, too, as does green tea, so this can be enjoyed in the late afternoon without being detrimental to sleep. It’s a pretty zen tea all around. I feel relaxed while I prepare it — also as I inhale its aroma and drink it. Buddha’s Blend is the perfect name for thie blend.
To prepare, steep about 1 1/4 tsp for every 8 ounces of just under boiling water, for about 2 to 3 minutes. This tea would be great iced but is relaxing when enjoyed warm. The hibiscus stood out to me, but it blends perfectly with the jasmine to create a unique flavor. Blending white tea with green tea makes for a more smooth, less grassy tasting tea, which works well with the other ingredients.And can we also take a moment to appreciate how pretty floral teas are? I love the blossoms within the green and white tea. I want to try a blooming tea too in the near future, but for now this one is pretty cool.Overall, DavidsTea Buddha Blend is a nice, relaxing cuppa to enjoy on a late afternoon or early evening, while reading a book, relaxing, getting through a stressful time or doing yoga. I’ve recently started incorporating meditation into my routine for self care, so I think this tea will be a good one to enjoy after each session. The ingredients are great for helping you calm down, though they don’t really knock you out the way sleep teas do.
