YAY Twelve Days of Christmas tea style.

Day 1-Pear Tree Tea.
I found in scent it reminded me of Teavana’s Chateau Blanc, but not as strong smelling (funny enough the smell of both kinda bug my tummy). I really liked Chateau Blanc so I had high hopes for this one.

It’s very similar in taste to Chateau Blanc, it’s hard to pinpoint, exactly what it tastes like. I find this one pulls off the wine/champagne flavour more. It’s also kind of earthy, tangy even maybe.

I don’t really know how to explain this one, except it’s yummy!

Interesting observations. I think yabao has a natural champagne quality. I know Chateau Blanc has orange, peach and pineapple in it. I used fruit from Teavana’s Asian Pear White Tea and Anjou Pear-adise Oolong before the whole pesticide debacle, because it was easy to get a hold of (I used to work there) and most of the pear melanges I saw online had questionable things in it like dairy. I removed all the hibiscus, rose, tea and odd tasting gooey fruit. But feared it still had a slight bubble gum flavor. I hope drinking the tea doesn’t bother your stomach.

Nope not at all, which is weird. Because normall when I don’t like the smell of something I can’t consume it. I do really love both of the teas.

I remember when the first shipment of Joie de Vivre (since remanined to Peach Bellini) came in last year and the bag smelled like nail polish, but it was an awesome dry white wine blend.
