This is a great, refreshing tea. Good to drink hot, let cool down just a little, or completely iced!

Nice fruity taste. There is a lot going on with it and suprisingly, the second brew is almost as good as the first!

another from the omgsrsly sample box of doooooom. I’m trying to make a concentrated effort to get a couple of sipdowns in every day to make up for lost time, ESPECIALLY now that i’m basically going to be travelling for the entire month of september…which may not result in a lot of opportunities to buy tea but i DO get a week back in chicago and i KNOW i can buy tea there lol this was a cold brew and not bad. it’s passable as an almost pear tea, while at least being a decent cup of tea without weird bitterness or silly flavours. I’d love more OOMPH but this one wasn’t terrible, esp considering it’s a teavana tea!

Nicole

Travel for a month??? I’m so jealous. Even if it is for work and not vacation (though I hope at least part is vacation). I love going, no matter the reason. :)

Sil

you’d think so… but i’ll be in places likes APPLETON! or wausau!…clearly thrilling places to go. lol i WILL be in kansas city for one day, but i’m not sure if i’ll get the chance to meet up with you since i have to drive out to st louis the next day…it’s one of those "in a new place every night’ sort of sucky deals lol. Only upside is a couple days in st louis to meet my tea sister; extra days in orlando to see my adopted “family” and hopefull a few extra days in phoenix before the last event.

Marzipan

Where are you going and is there tea there?

Sil

Marzipan – Chicago in august and then in september i’m looking at: kansas city, Indianapolis; st louis; millwaukee; minneapolis; appleton; wausau; phoenis; orlando; uh…..a few other places i can’t think of

Marzipan

Some great tea stores on your way!

mj

Check out Verdant (duh) and Tea Source while you’re in Minneapolis! Coffee and Tea Ltd is also decent for flavored teas. I haven’t tried their non-flavored teas yet.

MzPriss

Mandala isn’t that far of a drive from Minneapolis – just sayin’

MzPriss

And no, I haven’t been to either, but I checked :)

Sil

Mzpriss – yeah i’m hoping i’ll get a chance to hit verdants tea room for fun and possibly mandala…but the timing is going to be really tight!

thanks for the suggestions MJ – will totally keep that in mind!

I do not like this tea. I purchased it when I was first starting my tea journey, thinking I would love the oolong and added fruitiness. There’s just something about the taste that I really dislike. Could be the pear maybe? It’s just not great, and you’re probably better off spending your money on a better tea. Unfortunately I purchased a substantial amount (you know how pushy Teavana can be), so I’ll have a large tin of this sitting on my counter for quite a long time.

Hmm. This dry tea smells great, the brewed tea smells ok (the pear aroma is quiet), but when I sip this, I don’t taste any pear.

The tea is a pretty pinkish color when brewed, and it has a nice hint of sweetness, but I would like to have some pear flavor that I can detect. The tea also left a significant amount of sediment at the bottom of the cup. Not like broken leaves that slipped through a strainer, but what looks like powder.

I received this as a sample from Hapatite in a swap, and I was glad to give it a try, but I don’t think I would purchase this one.

P.S. I will give this a try again with a little sugar b/c I just read Carol Who’s review and she found the pear after sweetening.

Edit: 5/18 Did a cold brew. That was not a wise decision.

When I read the other tasting notes and tried my tea, I was confused. The color described ranged from golden yellow to coral and pink. Mine was a nice light yellow. Some people said hibiscus… no sense of hibiscus for me. ? Maybe I needed to steep longer I noticed a lot of finer bits in the bottom of the sample bag so I have no idea what my next brew will be like.
Nice pear flavor after lightly sweetening it. Thanks Hepatite for the swap! Good afternoon cuppa when I should be cleaning up the kitchen. It’s more fun to take a break.
On to other excitement… I lost 3.8 lbs this week even with no exercise because of my sprained knee. Of course I had gained 3 lbs last week because of the stupid knee. But at least I’m back on track!

Sarsonator

I had this one today, also, and was just about to post! I drank mine unsweetened, and I wasn’t picking up any pear. Maybe I need to try this again with a bit of sugar, since I still have a little bit left.

hapatite

I tried it iced and it was quiet pear-y, but it tasted a bit weak. I’d recommend it iced and overleafed.

Cheri

You did awesome this week, weight wise. How’s the knee doing?

carol who

The knee is getting better but I still can’t exercise because it isn’t healed. I notice that every time I start to increase my exercise the knee is killing me later. I’m please with the weight loss but I need to work harder on being consistent. Up 3 lbs, down 3 lbs! Not great, but I feel good to do .8 when I can’t get any exercise. :)

Cheri

I know exactly what you mean about the exercise. I screwed up my wrist bad in the fall (I fell, they thought it was broken, then said it was’t broken, then thought maybe it was broken, did a really expensive test to determine it wasn’t broken, blah blah blah…) and I really struggled with exercising then since a lot of what I do involves me using my wrist and hand. I did some running, but then last winter happened and I refuse to run in that much cold. And then I got really bad bronchitis. I was actually pretty pleased with myself that I only gained about 5 lbs in that whole time, but my clothes just don’t fit the same at all. I’ve lost so much muscle.

Just take it easy with the knee, do what you can but do not hurt yourself worse! I’m glad it’s getting better. Soft tissue damage can take a while to get better.

This has a pretty strong pear flavor. I find that Teavana teas usually have interesting names, but taste nothing like their monikers. This actually resembles pear though the taste is slightly artificial. It is intensely fruity with a slight green oolong aftertaste. Though the tea is pretty sweet without any added sweetener there is also a slight tartness. It makes a good iced tea, which is how I’m enjoying it now.

This is one of the few Teavana teas I actually really wanted to go back to restock on, rather than finding an alternative elsewhere. When I went on their website however, it appeared that they have discontinued the line.
I don’t really think it tastes like pear, but it was definitely a light, fruity oolong. I might just go on amazon and buy some there… that’s how badly I want to restock this tea.

REALLY good if you add a little honey

This is a backlog, since I haven’t made any notes in the past few days.

This one is mixed 1:1 by weight with Golden Monkey. Which is a shame because Golden Monkey is so fragrant on it’s own, but for some reason the bag of GM ended up in the tin with this oolong and by the time I remembered/got back to it, the GM smelled like fruitiness, so I gave up and dumped the bag into the tin and shook it up.

I think that makes the tea a little less ‘fruit juice’ than it otherwise would be, but I rather prefer it that way. It’s rather nice hot, and OK iced, sweetened or not. It’s also fairly expensive for what it is. I’ll try to finish it out, I now have 4oz worth of the mix, but probably wouldn’t repurchase, overall including the tin, it cost…. too much. I could have gotten wayy more tea for that price elsewhere, tins included.

On that note- how are these overpriced tins supposed to be reusable? The tea smells soo strongly when dry, I can’t imagine putting anything but the same type of tea back in.

Thank you MissB for this sample. I was always curious about some of Teavanna’s tea’s . This one sounded like a really good one so I brewed it up this morning. It seemed to be very watery. I added the right amount of tea but there just isn’t too much body to this tea. I taste the hibiscus and something fruity is coming through a bit (I guess the pear) but I get no oolong. That surprised me as I can see the oolong in there and the leaves are big. I might try this one as an iced tea for next time. It doesn’t seem to cut it as a hot tea. I’m still grateful to get to try it out without having to buy a huge amount from Teavanna!

when I want a pear this tea is the indicated, the flavor of pear and oolong is excellent, this tea is better with sugar, without sugar it´s nice too.
