drank Caramelized Pear by Art of Tea
2352 tasting notes

This arrived today in the last Steepster Select box for a while (boo!)

Man, I can’t believe all the positive reviews of this tisane. I just thought this was kind of nasty. It smells odd and it tastes even odder. I can’t quite place it, it’s mediciney and yes there is pear in here, but it tastes kind of rotten and fermented with a mixture of stinky feet. Blech! I do like some rooibos blends but this is NOT one of them.

If anyone wants to swap for this please let me know.

Interesting. 2yrs ago I tried this and rated it alright but did think there were a few things that didn’t work for it. I wonder how I will like it this time around? Hmm…

Rachel, if you want mine you can have it. :)

No thanks but I appreciate the offer. I got some in my box from Steepster today too. I was curious if that batch will change my impression on it.

Dang! We just did a swap!

TeaBrat

MA – I’d be happy to send it to you anyway.

I thought I’d like this as well…but all I’m getting is the rooibos and something fruity. I’m glad I’ve been able to give most of my sample tin away in Swaps, lol:) I think I have at least 1-2 cups left in anyone wants some!

Bio

My profile pic is of a pink dahlia at Golden Gate Park.

Hobbies include: tea, making art, animals, vegan things, buddhism, nature, creativity, books, writing, cooking, meditation, yoga.

I am a fan of many different teas but my favorites are blacks and oolongs, chai, also like darjeeling and pu-erh. I’n always learning and expanding my horizons!

Dislikes include: bergamot, jasmine, highly tannic or bitter teas, overly judgmental and bitter people. :)

Live in San Francisco, I’m a SINK (single income, no kids) and love the urban life, but traveling out to the middle of nowhere is always fun too.

I tend to not drink things I know I will hate so a lot of my tea ratings are on the higher side. Here’s my rating system, sorta

95-100 I love this tea and would like to keep it around

94-90 An excellent tea which I may or may not repurchase

89-80 Pretty good, above average

79-70 Acceptable

69-60 Mundane – Will probably drink it if I have it

59-50 Ick

49 and below Nasty
