drank Caramelized Pear by Art of Tea
1112 tasting notes

Finished my mindblowingly delicious sample from Jaime last night. So, so good. Caramel, fruit. Rich, decadent! I love it, and plan to order some as soon as I finish the other Art of Tea samples Jaime sent (so I can order all the yummiest ones!!)!

This sounds amazing! From your description it sounds like the French flavored teas – would you agree?

It is flavoring wise, but the rooibos is decidedly un-French! As soon as I get some I’ll send you a lil tin so you can see what you think :)

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
