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 also review teas for the Tea Review Blog:

In addition to my passion for tea, I am also a mixed media/altered arts artist. You can see some of my art here: http://eccentricpastiche.blogspot.com

I am also a self-proclaimed foodie. I review local restaurants and the food I buy online here: http://hungryinportland.wordpress.com

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.

I don’t do a whole lot of swaps anymore, however, I do occasionally sell sampler boxes here: http://liberteas.teatra.de/ I don’t always have sampler boxes available as it depends upon how much time I have as well as packaging supplies. I usually post at least one or two sampler boxes per month, though, so if you’re interested, keep an eye out or PM me and I’ll let you know when I have some posted.

Most of the teas that I record in my notes here are going to have a fairly high rating from me. This is not because I am not discerning, but because I do not usually waste my time on drinking tea I do not care for, nor will I waste my time on writing about it.
