drank White Pear by Adagio Teas
87 tasting notes

Adagio really dropped the ball on this one…

To begin with, the tea doesn’t taste or smell of pears at all, not even close. The brew has an indescribable sweetish artificial flavor which is quite unpleasant. The worst thing about it however is that this God-awful flavoring totally ruins the lightness in White Peony that is used as a base here, making it bitter and heavy instead. As i drink it I can’t get rid of the feeling that this poor White Peony has gone bad a hundred years ago…

I’m not even sure if I will be able to finish my sample, it’s that bad. I’m fighting the urge to go and throw it in the trash right now.

I’ve been drinking loose leaf tea all my life. I always take tea plain without adding any sweetener or milk to it. Would love to swap for tea, feel free to contact me about it.
