This tea looked really interesting, so i decided to give it a go. I liked the Sencha Pear from Davidstea but hated the crappy quality of the sencha used so again, still looking for a perfect green tea pear tea. Never heard of the partridgeberry, but i assume its something similar to cranberries. Opening up the package, the smell of this tea came at me really strong and very sweet. It doesn’t even smell like pears, and i can’t really define exactly what it is, but if i were to guess… perhaps a really sweetened honeydew/plum smell?
Anyways, onto the taste… thankfully it wasn’t as sweet as it smelled but it really didn’t taste like pear, so that was a letdown. I have no idea what the partridgeberry is supposed to taste like either so I’m not sure exactly how I am supposed to pick up on that. lol The tea is fairly light and alot better than the one from david’s just that this one.. smells really sweet and un-pearlike.
