This tea is ok, but not one of my favorites.

The smell of the tea in the bag is something akin to potpourri. I was a little scared. I brewed it as directed (160 F) and got mostly hot water taste. So I brewed it again at boiling temp and got much better flavor out of it. I tried it unsweetened and didn’t like it much and then I sweetened it pretty well with agave nectar and the pear flavor started to pop. This has a nice pear flavor and definitely has spice. I taste cinnamon and I think cloves. Luckily it tastes much better than it smelled in the bag.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 2 min, 0 sec

Hmmm when I think potpourri I think floral and not spice. Would it taste good iced maybe?

No, the potpourri was the pre-brewed smell of the leaves. Once brewed the flavor is pear and spice. I don’t think it would work as an iced tea.
