First cup of the day. I enjoy pear-flavored things, so I’m pretty excited to try this tea. The dry leaves smell like fresh, juicy pear. The tea has a sweet pear aroma. There are pretty gold sparkles all throughout my tea cup – I LOVE sparkles! The flavor is lightly malty with a sweet finish. The pear comes out in the aftertaste, but it’s very light, and more of a candy pear flavor. It’s not a bad tea, it seems like it’s just missing a little something else. I added some sweetener, which didn’t do whole lot other than bring out more of the fakish candy flavor. Then I added some milk and It actually is a whole lot better! The pear note is still very light, but the milk smoothed everything nicely into a somewhat creamy cup with a nice hint of pear. I am actually enjoying this cup now, a lot! I can’t taste much of the black tea, but it’s just all around a pleasant cup. It would be perfect for a summer afternoon, since it’s so light. I don’t know if I will purchase more of this one, but I am definitely looking forward to finishing off my sample pack.

I feel like today will be a very lazy day. All of our foster kittens are now out of their quarantine in the bathroom, and are running crazy all over the house. They kept climbing up on my bed all hours of the night, wanting to play. They are so cute, though, how can you resist a little play session at 3 am?! We took in all four of them thinking that we would find another foster for 2 of them, but now we are in love with all four. I can’t imagine how hard it will be to see them go. Luckily they will probably be with us for awhile longer, while our house is destroyed in the meantime! :)

Bio

Just a Southern girl who loves sunshine, little dogs and all things tea!

I love animals and animal rescue. We have a rescued Chihuahua, Greyhound, Siamese and 2 Tabbies. We also foster kittens for the local humane society.

My favorite teas are sweet and malty black teas but I try to branch out and taste them all. :)
