For some reason (low pressure outside?) my kettle has been weird today and hasn’t been steaming up at all until the water is just short of boiling. So this was brewed at roughly 200F even though I’d normally wait for the full boil.

This smells wonderful in the bag. It’s pure pear. As it brews the smell is again diluted by the DT black base. It’s actually kind of a weird combination, and I’m wondering if this shouldn’t be based on a different kind of tea. Despite that, the taste is good. I say good and not great because after tasting it I do think it should be a different base. Maybe green or white? The pear flavoring is spot-on, though. I like this but I’m on the fence about whether I’d actually restock it.

ETA: This is my 200th tasting note! My 100th was ten days ago. I have a problem.

Bio

Elizabeth, college student, history/anthropology major. I love to read, travel, and try new foods.

I loved tea as a kid, didn’t drink it for about ten years, and then rediscovered it about a year ago. I’m still pretty new to the types and brands of tea out there, but I’m interested in trying some of everything! My favorites are earl greys, yunnans, medium-bodied oolongs, Japanese greens, and fruit flavors. My least favorites are teas that are overly smoked, bitter, or contain strong hibiscus or orange peel.

About Swaps: I am always willing to swap with anyone within continental North America! Just drop me a note. For anyone in the eastern half of the U.S. I’ll gladly swap small samples of things, but further away than that I would prefer if we dealt with larger amounts.
