drank Pear Honey by Design a Tea
84 tasting notes

So I decided I’d give Design-a-Tea a shot and get some samples. Couldn’t hurt, right? I was curious to see if their pear flavoring measured up to S&V’s, and pear with honey sounded like a nice combo.

This? This tastes neither like pears nor honey. It’s like drinking perfume. I don’t know if it’s the pear or the honey flavoring that’s so flowery, but it’s incredibly floral. Not even pleasantly floral. Soapy floral. No joke, thanks to the scent I thought that I’d somehow gotten a rose tea when I opened the sample, and Design-a-Tea doesn’t even have rose as a flavor option. Sticking to Simpson & Vail if it’s pear tea I’m after, because this is incredibly far off the mark.

I’m a gamer girl who drinks a lot of tea. My tastes tend heavily towards black tea, though I won’t turn down a nice green or white either.

I stay away from most herbals because far too many of them have hibiscus. I find hibiscus disgusting. Nor am I a fan of rooibos; the taste has to be pretty heavily masked for me to drink it. Usually if I’m drinking a tisane it’s something purely floral like lavender, or rose buds, or chrysanthemum.

I’ll almost always put sugar in my tea, unless it’s something that really doesn’t work well with it (I will never ever add sugar to lapsang souchong again) or something that honestly doesn’t need it or would be ruined by it, like most unflavored greens or whites.
