drank Exotic Pear by Butiki Teas
183 tasting notes

After 3 straight days of drinking Bravissimo due to a sore throat, I decided that it was time for something different. I wanted to try one of my new guayusas, but it’s too late for that much caffeine, so I decided that Exotic Pear should be next.

I found it hard to judge the proper amt of tea to use due to the flowers in the mix, but I think I used enough. It ends up being a very delicately flavoured tea. I added some sugar to bring out the flavour, as is suggested, but I think the sugar overwhelmed it instead. I don’t taste pear at all.

Overall, not a bad tea, but not a great one, either. I might mix this with something else in the future.

Preparation

Bio

I’m a vegan, board-game playing, avid reader who likes to run and/or lift weights depending on my mood (and current injuries).

I’m fairly new to tea, but my collection seems to be growing at an exponential rate. Herbals, greens, whites, and now oolongs are my teas of choice at the moment. I haven’t developed a taste for black yet (if it’s something you can develop a taste for).
