drank White Ginger Pear by Tea Forte
1613 tasting notes

I iced up my last two triangles of this today. It’s not bad. More pear than ginger, and what with not being a fan of the ripe pear taste, I’m not sure why I thought I liked this so much.

It’s pretty good, especially if you like very flavoured teas, and you find it on sale at Chapters. :) 1 triangle does about 1 litre of final iced tea product to my taste, they say it makes 24oz. But drink what you prefer.

Preparation
160 °F / 71 °C 3 min, 30 sec

Hm. Maybe I should give this another chance.

OMGsrsly

All I taste is pear. It’s not super sweet but definitely reminds me of those terrible jelly beans. (Terrible because yuck! Pear!)

Anna

I reread my tasting note, and felt… no. Will not give second chance. HORRORFUL.

OMGsrsly

Ahaha. Yeah, definitely don’t drink this hot. Better iced. But still not a repurchase. (Srsly, pear jelly beans. So gross.)

Bio

Black teas are my favourite, although I do drink the occasional green tea. I am exploring herbal and fruity teas for summer icing and winter evenings, and oolong and pu erh are new and exciting… although I do not like a tea that tastes mostly of seaweed.

No: Spearmint or peppermint, licorice root, gluten (cookie bits, wheat, rye, barley, I’m OK with oats)

After sending my first box to the USA, bubble-envelope swaps are where it’s at.

When I rate, my ratings are based on the little faces, and depend on what face I make when I sip the tea! :)

Also: A map of tea places in Vancouver. I’ve been to some of them, but not a lot. If you have any suggestions, please let me know!
