drank Caramelized Pear by Art of Tea
911 tasting notes

Trying to figure out how to rate this one. Even though I’ve had it twice, I just don’t know where I stand on it. I like the flavorings, but that stupid rooibos is throwing me off. This time I’ve gone a little heavy on the not-leaf, made a larger cup, steeped it at boiling and added no sugar.

Yeah, all I really get out of this is sweet, rich rooibos. If I slurp, I get a weird pear thing – canned pear (which I love) and rooibos (not so much) – which almost works but ends up being too rooibos for me. The caramel isn’t overly strong for me but I think that’s because the rooibos is so strong.

I’ve finally made a decision for this one. Ultimately I think this one is really just for those that like rooibos, which just isn’t me. That being said, it’s actually pretty good for being so obviously rooibos. But I’m still going to be the lone voice with a not-that-green number. Ah well.

lol! Yes, rooibos = not-leaf! :)

I really liked this tea but since I last had it, I’ve gone off rooibos in a major way. I’ll have to see if it stands up. I thought that the pear was better than canned.

I really liked canned pears so that wasn’t a bad thing. It seemed sweeter to me than a fresh pear, thus the comparison. But yeah, I think I’m kind of an anomaly when it comes to this tea. I’m probably missing something.

I’m trying to be a better tea logger and actually post semi-regularly again! I’ve let my tea tasting senses become too complacent – it’s time for some focused and attentive tea drinking!

Sometimes my notices for PMs and such have been questionable. Email me at your own risk at aug3zimm at gmail dot com.


1 – 10 – Bleck. Didn’t finish the cup.
11 – 25 – Drinkable. But don’t punish me by making me have it again.
26 – 40 – Meh. Most likely will see if the husband likes it iced.
41 – 60 – Okayish. Maybe one day I’ll kill off what I have in my pantry.
61 – 75 – Decent. I might pick some up if I needed tea.
76 – 85 – Nice. I’d probably buy but wouldn’t hunt it down.
86 – 100 – Yum! I will hunt down the vendor to get this tea!

Not that anyone but me particularly cares, but there it is.
