drank White Pear by Teaopia
31 tasting notes

I SO wanted to like white tea. It’s light, refreshing, delicate—yes please! But why oh why must there be grassiness. Curse you grassiness!!! You are the BANE of my tea-loving existence. I do not understand how people can appreciate you. I once ATE grass, and did not enjoy it at the least (hush, I was a child, I was curious) and so why there are many who enjoy a hot steaming cup of grass I will perhaps wonder over forever. (I once entertained the idea that “green” tea was so labeled in order to warn those who know the truth about grassiness to stay away)
I would like to share the following that Erin posted while describing Adagio’s White Pear: “like latex and corn syrup stewed in a mug with some asparagus.” YES. YES YES YES. WHY.
Also, although this smells deliciously of promises of peary goodness, there is no “pear flavour,” Teaopia. I could not find it.

Perhaps that is why I like green teas. I constantly ate grass as a child (pretending I was a pony XD ) and liked it.

hee hee! That must be it! XD

Oh no, was this your first experience with a white? Don’t give up! Please don’t let this turn you off of whites; there are much better ones out there. In fact, the only white I’ve ever hated was Adagio’s White Pear. It just must not be a good flavor combo. Try their White Blueberry, it is my absolute favorite flavored white. Again, don’t give up!!!

And thanks for quoting me!

Hello! I’m pretty new to the tea world. I fell in love with loose leaf tea fairly recently and started learning everything I could about it…now I work at a tea store and have discovered I am a) totally nutters about tea and b) will never know as much as I want to about it, which is everything. I am on a quest to figure out the meaning of very good tea, from very humble beginnings.
