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!
“Nope, cold steeping doesn't make it all fruity and awesome. More tea to water does it! BUT this is a great way to bring out the oolong. It's still really fruity, but it doesn't scream pear like...” Read full tasting note

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!
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!
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!
