This was another one sent to me by Jaime! Thanks so much!!!

Let me start off by saying that I don’t really like pear-flavored things. Why? I have no idea. I guess that it’s not really the most rational thing, but I just “think” that I don’t like pear things. However, I am adventurous enough to try pretty much any tea at least once and I do like ginger, so I thought that I would give this one a try.

I totally have to agree with TeaEqualsBliss on this one. Her review for this tea sums up my initial thoughts perfectly when she talks about how the ginger pear ratios change before and after this tea steeps. This is another tea that definitely smells different before and after you steep it. Before I smelled more ginger than pear and after it was all about the pear with some ginger. At first I was like… Uh oh. Pear. But it actually smelled pretty good! The flavors blend together really well in this tea and there is just the slight bite of ginger that makes it interesting. Something pear that I actually like!

As this one cools, I notice the flavors come out more as well. In fact, I tried this as a small glass of iced tea the other day and it was very refreshing! In fact… I was at the AJ’s in town yesterday and saw that they had a few Tea Forte boxes and this was one of them, so I bought a box!

Thanks again Jaime for the sample! This is one that I probably wouldn’t have tried on my own, but I really like it!

Bio

I’m a University student, currently finishing up my degree in Illustration. I am an aspiring writer and hope to one day write and illustrate children’s books. Chapter books, picture books – I would love to do it all. That is the dream! :-)

I love tea and I am always excited to try out new and different flavors. Whenever I go to a new store I always have to check out the tea selection – and if I find a new one I always get really excited – and then my husband likes to laugh at me. ;-)

I’ve recently “acquired” a bad coffee habit that I am trying to break (needed the caffeine for all those late nights working on projects!) and am trying to make the switch back to mostly teas again.

I just happened to stumble across Steepster when I was hunting for some new teas to try and so far I’m really loving reading all of the reviews! It’s really fun to find so many people that like tea as much as I do!

If you have any tea recommendations for me, then please let me know! :-)
