Had to see how this compared to the Apple Vanilla Chai White tea from 52teas. Things are quite different between these two teas. This is quite smooth, sweet and full of pear flavor with a great white base. The Chai is full of cinnamon sweetness, hints of apple and other background spices that thicken the taste of the tea. Quite different.

I’m upping the rating on this tea a few points as I finally got the temperature right and steeped it for 30 seconds longer. Really brought out more pear flavor and an overall more flavorful cup. Sad to see I only have another pot/few cups left of this. May as well head over to 52teas and see if there are more available. I’m not ready to go a fall and winter without this blend.

You’re welcome! Happy you ordered some, it’s so good. I think I’m going to wait and see what next week’s tea is and place an order then for more.

Live in the cornfields of IL, but not too far from the city. Expecting a baby any day now (due Oct 24 2011). Sticking to mainly herbal and low caffeine teas for now. Trying to encourage my husbands tea drinking, but he adds so much sweetner he may as well just drink diet pop. I love trying new teas, and will try any tea once.
