I ordered a sample of this along with my recent order, mainly out of curiosity, because I was looking for pear flavored teas as part of a swap gift that I had sent out, and I was contemplating ordering this tea for my swap partner. I am glad that I decided not to order this one for her, because while it is a very delicious tea, it possesses a strong anise flavor (I love it, but, it is not for everyone) and I don’t know if she would have enjoyed it as much as I am.

The description suggests that the pear is the main focus of this cup, but I would have to disagree… I’m getting mostly white tea and anise. I get pear flavor too, but, it is back there a bit, standing behind the strength of the anise. It takes a few sips for the pear to develop, but it is really quite a lovely set of flavors.

It is incredibly light and smooth… and I agree with AmazonV – don’t add anything to this tea, it’s quite lovely as it is, and such a soft, sweet flavor that could easily be overpowered.

Anise is very much not for everyone. I feel like it is one of those things you either love or hate… Sadly I can’t stand it… : (

I absolutely love it, but, I know that there are quite a few out there that do not. But as my grampa would say “it’s good that we don’t all like the same thing. Otherwise we’d all want to be married to the same person.”

Hahaha… Your grampa is very very right! : )

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.

The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:

I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.

My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
