drank Honey Pear by Golden Moon Tea
1112 tasting notes

Wow! I don’t think I ever had a tea quite like this! It was STRANGE and DELICIOUS! I felt as if I was having an exotic treat from a far off land…in the middle of my parlor in New Jersey! The pear really did taste like a perfectly ripe pear – I loved the taste!! and the honey was really flavorful in almost a musky sort of way, and I didn’t find it overly sweet. It’s certainly not something that I’d want every day, but when I’m in the mood for something unusual, this would be a perfect one! I would purchase a full size of this tea for when the mood struck.

As you can probably tell, my Golden Moon sampler came yesterday :) I ordered it on Monday afternoon and it arrived on Wednesday – excellent turnaround! The ordering process was painless, and I was updated with a tracking number when it shipped.

Whee for the GM sampler! Hehe, glad you joined our ranks, Jacqueline, and I can’t wait to read your reviews!

My problem today? What tea to try next!?!?!?! ;) Right now it’s a contest between White Ginger, Vanilla Mint and Sugar Carmel Oolong. I LOVE problems like this!!!!

How cute is everything in that box? I don’t want to gush, but yeah! It’s been one of my favorite tea experiences so far, that sampler. When do you get a chance to taste ALL of a company’s output? Oh, that’s right, NEVER. So yeah, enjoy it all! :D I haven’t tried this one and Sugar Caramel Oolong yet!

Squee, I’ve been debating getting their sampler set for ages! But I just ordered from 52teas… Oh, inner conflict.

I agree – the presentation is beautiful and I will reuse that pretty box for sure. The labels really speak to my aesthetic as well – I love moons and even have a moon tattoo :) and I love the old fashioned yet not dated look. Excellent design!! Of course it would all be meaningless if the tea wasn’t excellent and so far, so good! I also like that they support Lotus88. I can see this as a beginning of a lovely relationship with Golden Moon.

tease – when you’re ready – I think it’s a great value and very, very fun.

I sometimes get antsy keeping to a tea budget (both financial and volume wise – if I have to much I don’t get to enjoy it, and things get lost in the shuffle) but I know it’s for the best!

I think Micah and I got defective tea, because my review is going to sound a lot like his did. With everyone rating this relatively high, it makes me scratch my head. The flavors sound like something I’d love, but this did not come out happily for me. To borrow an angrboda turn of phrase: poot.

JacquelineM

takgoti – my husband didn’t like it and it came from one in the same wee package! It’s so unique that I could see it being a tea that people would have really strong feelings about either way.

Ricky

Yeah, my friend didn’t really enjoy this tea much either, so it’s not you Takgoti.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
