this is a plain fruity tea… oversteeped unfortunately. I’d like to try a second infusion of this one day. It was a to go order so had to throw the bag out- boo!
I can tell that it’s a quality brew though, relatively smooth for being oversteeped and light in flavour. I’m tasting some of the tartness as well, could that be the pomegranate?
Meh. I don’t plan on buying a tin of this but it’s satisfying enough I suppose. It just doens’t stand out in any way for me other than having a decent quality base.

A tea that is most definitely in need of a touch of milk to help its subtle flavours further expose themselves, but a good morning tea, not so bold as a nice Assam or Breakfast blend, but a pleasant brew.

Mmmmm, iced is my friend!

I iced this bad boy up to help me through the Summer Program training tonight, I needed just enough caffine to get me to 9pm but now so much that I would be up all night.

I placed 3 tea spoons into an 8 cup bodum and added 1.5 cups of hot water (from the water cooler) and accidentally let this steep for a full 2 hrs before pouring it over ice. Not overly bitter, but the creamy note really came through this time; delish!

I think this will be my mid-day tea for summer!

When I read the ingredients I imagines something Chai like. What I got was a brew and smell that was almost exactly the same as what my herbalist used to brew for me. And while it does perk you up, I don’t think I will be drinking it straight again. May brew some in with some rice for a nice curry one day.

I love green tea. And I love pears. This tea smells heavenly. And the taste is a nice green with subtle hints of pear. Very nice.

Still dying of allergies. Mom suggested a hot toddy, but I’m not in the mood for booze, so I added a few drops of honey and lemon to this….yum. It’s soothing, it’s helping my throat…love. So much love for this one.

I found my tin of this towards the back of my cupboard, I forgot I had it. I call this tea the “Shrek” tea due its color and its name. Nice tart fruity taste, very enjoyable tea.

This was not bad. It’s a little like a few other ‘butter’ or ‘cream’ flavored black teas that I’ve had, but it does have a nice smooth taste. There is some sort of aftertaste that I wasn’t crazy about. The aftertaste was a bit smokey. Maybe it was the way I steeped it.

It needs to be said that this tea looks dead sexy…seriously look at those lovely white tea leaves and that smell purrrrrr …you just want to put your face all over it. Yes I did call a tea sexy and no I do not have any regrets Now for the really important part how does the damn tea taste? It has that nice grassy mellowness you would expect from a white tea but it is the blueberry that really shines here. I found that the pomegranate acts like a buffer that sweetens and smooths the subtle grassy notes with the bolder blueberry. Mellow, grassy and nicely astringent with a strong blue berry flavor. White tea lovers and those who find that whites may not be there thing this is certainly worth a try.

I am having a terrible, terrible allergy day. At once point the left side of my face itched, including my throat. I made a big mug of this and drank it as hot as I could and thank god, it helped. Whenever there is something even remotely wrong with my throat, I reach for this tea.
