The central smell I get from the dry leaf is caramel, rounded out with pear and chocolate notes. Brewed, the fruitiness of the pear is somewhat muffled, and the chocolate and truffle notes come to the fore. The flavor is sophisticated and balanced, and makes me want to go invent some desserts with pears, caramel, and chocolate. A sorbet, perhaps? Yum.

I’m a stay-at-home mom in Western MA who loves cooking, baking, gardening, reading, writing poetry, and tea!

I prefer drinking loose leaf teas for flavor and a more satisfying tea experience, but end up drinking bagged tea at least half of the time for convenience’s sake.

I like iced tea in the summer, spiced tea in the winter, and a good earl grey any time. Chocolate teas are nice, since cocoa tends to upset my tummy. I also enjoy some herbal teas, and I look forward to someday growing herbs for tea in my garden. I despise rooibos. And Celestial Seasonings Sleepytime is the only way I’ll drink chamomile.
