By looking at the color of the steeped water, you would think that this tea had very little favor. But after smelling and tasting the tea, you get a burst of pear flavor. The one thing i do not like about this tea is the very sweet after taste. I feel like i just had a sweet tart. I thought that this would be good iced b/c of the sweetness but the flavor of the tea was to light when it was iced.
