I guess if they said ‘prunes" nobody would want to try this tea as much? prunes are dried plumbs, so they are not lying I guess. The aroma of the dried leaves does yell “Prunes!” more than “pears!” It has a Ceylon base. Kinda boring, not too exciting, but I wouldn’t say it should be ignored. I’m thinking this tea is better suited to be enjoyed during a meal? Maybe something spicy or rich. It would compliment each other nicely.
I don’t hate this tea, but it has not blown me away as maybe it should have.
Plum Pear Black Tea
This wonderful black tea captures the aromas of fresh plums and pears. Only the tea from the top three tea growing regions of Sri Lanka was used for this tea. These high-grown districts produce teas that have classic Ceylon tea character with floral notes, touches of astringency, and a bright coppery color. A dash of sugar helps to bring out the natural sweetness of the fruits in this tea. Serve over ice for a real summer treat!
