I didn’t know what to expect when I picked this up at a discount store, but was encouraged by the real pear pieces.

It’s a smooth rooibos (i.e. not too woody), the pear tastes fresh & juicy, and the vanilla comes across more as a mellow creamy note than a noticeable vanilla. It all blends together well and tastes like some sort of rich dessert – pears with cream, basically. It tastes like it has milk in it,even though I’m drinking it plain. I like it better than I expected to, but couldn’t drink it daily. I bet it would be great iced though!

I was searching for a pear and cream dessert to compare this too, and found this: http://www.marthastewart.com/recipe/baked-pears-with-cream

let the bag cool, then resteeped (cold brewed) overnight (~12 hrs). Will try it later…

It’s ok cold, but the pear tasted “juicer” and fresher when hot (then again, the hot mug was steep #1 and this cold is steep #2 of same bag, so it may just be that the flavor has weakened.)

I have been trying to find this online but can’t find where to buy it. Could you let me know where you get your tea at?

I bought it at my local Big Lots a while back. They only sell closeout/overstock, so it has probably been discontinued by Tetley.

I found a cylinder of Tetley Rooibos Vanilla & Pear in the back of one of my cupboards. It is of unknown provenance and age, but I gave the dried bags a sniff and concluded that they were still fresh.

The liquor is an orange-amber color, and the flavor is mostly rooibos, with a smattering of vanilla and fruitiness. It’s really not bad at all. I probably relegated it to the back of a cupboard upon reading “artificial flavoring” among the ingredients. In truth, it tastes fine.

My powers of rooibos-blend discrimination are not very refined, so perhaps others would disagree, but to me this grocery store rooibos seems just as good (or bad) as some of the much more expensive variations on the theme. It is rooibos, in the end, so I cannot muster up a huge amount of excitement even though I find nothing particularly wrong with it. It’s all a matter of taste!
