aroma:

Buddha’s Blend has a gorgeous floral aroma with lovely, light, and airy green tea scents and a subtle, sweet fruitiness. Tangerine citrus notes fade into the background but add a nice brightness to this brew.

flavour:

Very subtle at first, the flavour of this tea grows into a great balance of white and green teas that is mellow and relaxing. A heavily backloaded flavour, it starts out very subtle before building to a mild citrus green tea. I may have brewed this one a tad too hot for the first try as there is a bit of astringency to this one that feels like it shouldn’t be there. Overall quite nice but be sure not to brew it too hot and bruise the leaves.
