I had this tea last summer and really enjoyed it. In fact, I liked it so much that I wrote a note on my calendar to order more this summer. Now that summer is almost over (sob!) I am rushing to do all the summery fun things I’ve been putting off. This is definitely a fun tea.

I decided to ice this one. Once brewed it has the grape-y floral scent of wine. The taste is true to its name – a cold, sweet iced wine. The pear flavor is a nice touch because it keeps the tea from having a slight edge that might otherwise be there. Also, the flavors are very mellow which I like in this tea. A lot of times when I choose to drink a flavored tea I want flavor, but this tea is subtle and I find it a delightful change of pace.

I have always been curious about tea, but I didn’t give in to a full fledged obsession until 2010. I’ve enjoyed every new discovery, and my garden has loved the mini mountain of tea leaves that’s been added to the soil! Some of my favorite tea companies are:

- Whispering Pines Tea Company
- Zen Tea Life
- Harney and Sons
- 52 Teas
- Teavivre

While drinking tea I enjoy indulging in my other passions which include reading (the classics and mysteries), music, gardening, and crochet. I have a small business called the Leaf Street Thread Company, and I’m excited to have many of my handmade items sold at stores in the Philadelphia area.

My Rating System:

100-95 = Teas I actively seek out and keep in my pantry. If you are a guest in my home chances are I will offer you one or all of these teas. Also, if/when these teas are discontinued I openly mourn their loss.

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
