I am trying to switch back and forth between the higher and lower rated samples from my GM sampler so as it’s the lower scores turn I am trying the Honey Pear. I used a little under a cup of boiling water with the whole sample which was 2 full teaspoons. Wow—this is definitely exactly what it claims…honey, then pear. I always take a little taste without sweetener before I add my usual agave nectar, I almost always sweeten. Not this one—it’s perfect as is. This is so different from anything I’ve tried so far in my tea drinking journey and I LOVE it!! It’s very layered, reminds of a good red wine in that way. It doesn’t taste like wine, just the layering of the flavors. I am so happy with this tea…I am definitely ordering more.
