Made a cup of this yesterday, but I only got to finish about 1/3 of it, because my LO was being ornery. She just doesn’t understand “Mommy’s having a tea moment” yet. xD It’ll be a while before that happens. Usually it’s not so much of an issue. Like this morning, when she’s sleeping late because she decided to stay up two hours past her usual bedtime last night.
Anyway, enough about my spawn. My previous notes about this tea stand—it’s a lot more vanilla than pear. However, there is something in the astringency of the aftertaste that is somewhat reminiscent of the way pear peel tastes by itself: a little sour, a little bitter.
Having this tea this morning with some wheat toast and blood orange marmalade. :) The vanilla flavor comes out more than the pear, I’m afraid… but I could probably guess that pear is a difficult flavor to detect anyway. I love eating the fruit, though, so I was really excited when I saw this tea in a sampler pack from Harry & David. Omg, that store makes me poor. D:
Anyway, it definitely is a wonderfully light black tea (despite the fact that I steeped it a bit longer than I meant to), with some delicious fruity notes that I suppose could be the pear. It just doesn’t scream “I AM A PEAR TEA” at me. Still tasty, though. :3
