drank White Pear by Tsaa
1308 tasting notes

So today, I met up with a Steepsterite!! what fun! :D
We went to this shop on the Danforth called Tsaa. They’re new in town, maybe 1.5 yrs old but oh man is the place ever cute!! plenty of seating, though it does get pretty busy… and a fireplace! love it!
Tsaa is family owned, so they are super friendly. We chatted for a long time about the different teas. I will definitely be back there soon.
As for the tea, this one was pleasant. Smooth. The pear wasn’t very strong, but it was distinct. The white tea was nice and round, I quite enjoyed how light it was.
Not one I will buy, but very pleasant overall. Oh and now that I am looking back, I wish I had added a pinch of sugar to see where the pear went. Oh well, next time!

Uh, I think someone is doing a mind control on us. You, Krystaleyn and I just did Pear Tea reviews!

Haha, it maaaay have been out of *Indigobloom*’s cup from which I sampled :D

It was like that time that I had three Red Leaf matcha reviews on my dashboard in a row!! All by different people, too! None of which was (surprisingly), aisling of tea!

Indigobloom

ah yes, I think there’s some matcha fever going ’round!
Pears must be a spring thing. I know I have it on the brain! :)

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

0-25
Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

25-50
You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

50-70
This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

70-80
I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

80-90
Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

90-95
Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

95-100
Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
