First tea I’ve tried from this company (Remedy Tea in Philadelphia, not to be confused with Remedy Teas in Seattle), and I’m impressed. Really nice flavour—the spices are subtle but it all blends really well—and it smells absolutely amazing. I almost get a walnut-y aftertaste. I might brew a little longer next time.
Hmm, very unimpressed with this today. Brewed for what I thought was too long (although looking at my past notes, I see that I brewed it for 5 min. previously and it turned out okay), and did not enjoy the taste. The ginger was amped like crazy and the pear note almost tasted bitter. It was kind of a mess, to be honest. I only made it through 1/2 of the cup and gave up. I have to echo my previous review and say this is my least favourite Remedy Tea Bar blend out of everything I ordered. I’ll try it again before I adjust the rating, but it seems too high after this round!
Drank this today and finally brewed it long enough. Definitely a very strong pear flavour, with the ginger staying well in the background, but still noticable. I don’t think I have tried any other pear-flavoured teas so this blend is really nice for its uniqueness alone, but overall I think it’s my least favourite of the 5 I ordered from Remedy Tea Bar. It might be the ginger that keeps me from completely loving it. Still a very good cuppa, though!
Again, I didn’t brew it long enough. I’ve been over-steeping everything lately so I was paranoid! Still nice, but not as flavourful. If I have a second cup I’ll definitely leave it in longer!
