drank Rooibos Vanilla & Pear by Tetley
2518 tasting notes

I didn’t know what to expect when I picked this up at a discount store, but was encouraged by the real pear pieces.

It’s a smooth rooibos (i.e. not too woody), the pear tastes fresh & juicy, and the vanilla comes across more as a mellow creamy note than a noticeable vanilla. It all blends together well and tastes like some sort of rich dessert – pears with cream, basically. It tastes like it has milk in it,even though I’m drinking it plain. I like it better than I expected to, but couldn’t drink it daily. I bet it would be great iced though!

I was searching for a pear and cream dessert to compare this too, and found this: http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/baked-pears-with-cream

let the bag cool, then resteeped (cold brewed) overnight (~12 hrs). Will try it later…

It’s ok cold, but the pear tasted “juicer” and fresher when hot (then again, the hot mug was steep #1 and this cold is steep #2 of same bag, so it may just be that the flavor has weakened.)

I have been trying to find this online but can’t find where to buy it. Could you let me know where you get your tea at?

I bought it at my local Big Lots a while back. They only sell closeout/overstock, so it has probably been discontinued by Tetley.
