Thanks to Sil for sharing this with me!

A really pretty tea, with pieces of what looks like pear and some orangish flower petals and other small flowers inside. Brewed up, it smells like pear, and has the taste of a very ripe pear… it reminds me of pear-picking on Salt Spring Island at the yoga centre, where we took oodles of pears, peeled them, and made pear-sauce out of half of them, juicing the rest in this huge hand-cranked contraption bolted to the back of a truck. Anyway. This reminds me of those pears – almost overripe, and very juicy.

I have to say that I wihs there was a better base here though, as I think this tea could really shine with something crisper.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites and rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y (like Laoshan Black, any of Verdant’s chai’s and Whispering Pines’ Mint Chocolate Chip). Missing living near a tea shoppe that offers a lot of options; other than DAVIDs a few blocks away, I’m buying most of my stuff online. Still, I have more than two cupboards devoted to tea, and a ridiculous amount of it!

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

I love tea swaps, and will gladly swap anything I have that I have enough of to share.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
