drank Perfect Pear by DAVIDsTEA
577 tasting notes

I love pears but this tasted nothing like pear to me. It tasted almost like some sort of weak syrup maybe? Bleh.

I put some in the fridge to cold brew so perhaps that will be the saving grace for this tea.

Thanks to jessiwrites for such a generous sample :)

Update: I let this one chill for at least 7 hours in the fridge. It’s definitely an upgrade from before but still not all that amazing. With a name like Perfect Pear I was expecting it to taste just like a pear! Perhaps pear is a hard taste to master. But this is only my first pear tea and often when they don’t work out it just spurs me on to find the perfect one :)

I had a sample of this in store once and it was SO good, totally pear. Never been able to recreate that at home though sadly.

Hm I wonder how they did it. I’m always reluctant to add any type of sweetener.

Bio

Lover of tea, animals, the ocean (http://eastcoastbest.tumblr.com/), travel, science, and all things summer.

That’s my mug! I may have a slight love of Star Trek.

I love black teas. I pretty well always drink my tea straight. I’m also fond of herbals, but they rarely make my permanent collection. I prefer my tea hot, but occasionally I’ll cold brew.

Oolongs I enjoy, but I’m not always in the mood for them. Greens and pu’erhs I’m working on, but they’re coming along at a snail’s pace. Whites have to be pretty amazing (see Butiki’s White Rhino). Rooibos/honeybush have to be well hidden for me to enjoy them. Mates and are not for me at all.

Any smokiness, bergamot, flowers (rose, jasmine, chamomile), hibiscus is hit and miss, to be continued…
