Art of Tea lists this as one of their most popular teas; I believe them. From the scent of the dry leaves to the taste of the brewed tea, this is absolutely, unambiguously, deliciously candied pear. I steeped 1.5 teaspoons in about 8 oz of boiling water for ten minutes, then added a bit of my favorite sweetener.

The resulting brew smells strongly of a ripe Bartlett pear (or even like the taste of a Juicy Pear jelly bean, or at least what I remember a Juicy Pear jelly bean tastes like), with perhaps a hint of tart apple lingering beneath. On sipping the tea, I first taste rich, golden caramel, then sweet juicy pear, and then the two mingle. I get no other notes, so this isn’t exactly the most complex tea around, but it’s seriously tasty to a pear-lover such as myself.

I got this tea in a sampler, but I will definitely by more when I run out.
