drank Caramelized Pear by Art of Tea
911 tasting notes

I’m bumping the rating of this one up a bit because apparently I find this decently tasty when made in a big ole cup. Very pear-ish in a canned-but-not-as-sweet way. I only get hints of caramel but it adds a different sweetness to it that is nice. I get a bit of the sweetness from the rooibos but none of the wood. It doesn’t hold a candle to last night’s Coconut Custard from Teas Etc but, in the big cup, I’m finding it very drinkable.

I’m glad to hear that it’s not as good as the coconut custard. Maybe that will keep me from buying it. This has been on my shopping list for a long time because it has such high ratings.

I am a much bigger fan of coconut flavoring in general compared to pear so that might make a difference. Maybe if you were a big pear fan you’d like this tons? Not that I am encouraging you in buying more tea or anything… Though Jade Teapot carries this one so you could always request a free sample of it from them.

Do you think the Jade Teapot one is the same? I tried that one and found it to be meh.

Auggy

Yes, it is. They source their teas from Art of Tea. (I think they posted that in the discussion board somewhere.)

Kristin

Oh. ok. Cool. The pic looks different from the JT actual tea (if I remember correctly). Does your Art of Tea version actually look like that pic?

Auggy

Sorta? There were some fruit pieces in it but not near as many as the AoT pic makes it look. And they were rooibos coated (like the lump in the back of the JT pic) so it just looked like rooibos with chunks until it had steeped. I’d vote for the AoT pic being the artistic, attractive glamor shot of the tea and JT pic being the causal, informal snapshot. Hehe.

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.
