I made a deal with myself today. I wasn’t going to buy more tea for a while, but….well, crap. I just ordered frm two different companies this week and then ordered again. Sigh. So my deal with myself is that snce I didn’t restrain myself, I will only let myself buy one tea at a time when my kids go to Raleigh and can hit the tea shops for me. By giving myself new tea, I get the excitement of something new without spending a lot, and it makes me choose very carefully.

I am really exhausted from work this week, didn’t want soda, and daughter who drinks green tea with me is coming over, so I asked youngest to make a pot of this. I just sat here sniffing it for a while and picturing fresh pears. Ahhhh. So relaxing. Then I drink, and swirl it in my mouth. Oh, pear juice! Swishing about, so sweet and tasty. This is a winner. Thank you, Tin Roof Teas of Cameron Village.

I understand your tea ordering dilemma. I am always trying to cut back on ordering and I always fail at it. Minimal damage is a good approach, though! My most recent order was a refill of a favorite (I really wanted a pound, but settled for 7 oz.) and the rest of the order was for a gift.

This does sound tasty! TeaGschwendner is on my list of places to try, but I am not trying any more new ones for a while.

We’re pitiful! I think this is a sure sign of a “problem.”

If we could regrow limbs quickly and correctly, I’d have sold them time and again for more tea. Need an arm? Leg? How about an ear canal? No probs, I’ll just take some of that Tea there and head to the regeneration hospital. :))

LOL! ScottTeaMan, don’t give anyone ideas about spare kidneys and such!

Like Jill’s review notes, there is not a heck of a lot of pear flavour in this tea, but it’s a very nice flavoured green none-the-less!

It actually kind of reminds me of 52teas Cherry Cheesecake green tea. Nice and sweet, with a bit of astringency.

Thanks Jillian ! I will definitely try this iced next time!

ashmanra

I am pretty sure this is the one Tin Roof Teas sells, and it is soooo good!

Hey I think you’re right! I’m definitely going to try it iced – I have enough for a few more cups so I will definitely do it justice!

We tried this tea this afternoon. This was a generous sample from Ashmanra. Thank you!

It’s got a good pear flavor to it. It actually tastes like pear juice was added to my tea. I’ve had an asian pear one time before I think. I’m not really up on how greatly differs from other pears. I do remember I liked the texture better. The green tea is just slightly vegital and sweet. It’s also creamy in a sort of buttery way. All around a good tea to drink in the afternoon. I bet this one is great iced as well.

Yup, another one out of the Travelling Teabox – at this rate it’ll take me forever to go through it. :D

As it turns out it’s not super pear-y; I think pear is another one of those flavours that is difficult to replicate, as I have yet to find a company who has it spot-on. This tea takes a decent stab at it, however. It’s delicately fruity without tasting artificial and there are vague pear notes, although in general I gotta say that it’s more of an indistinct fruit flavour than anything else. The green tea base is decent as well; not too bitter, and subtle enough so that it acts as an accessory to the fruit flavours rather than overwhelming them.

It yields a resteep that isn’t weak or watery, which is a point in its favor – lots of teas are great tasting for the first round but the resteep is total fail.

Keeping this one. :D

I got this as my free sample. I really like this tea! I haven’t been a fan of the apple or fruit teas from TeaGschwendner, but this tea has changed my mind. The pear flavor is wonderful, light, and tastes like it smells. Crisp is the one word to describe it. I would consider getting this again. The green tea blend is quite tasty, medium flavor.

This is a beautiful tea. The blossoms contrast nicely with the tea leaves. If only I’d won that Steepster Holiday contest -- This would be a great tea for the Sorapot!
