drank White Ginger Pear by Tea Forte
676 tasting notes

Another sample I picked up at the local gourmet food store. First…others note the strong scent of the dry bag, ginger especially, and I could hardly detect any scent at all. I was fearful that the flavor was going to be flat. I let the bag steep 4 minutes to a sweet light caramel yellow, pour….and the pear scent drifted up like “Ha, fooled you”. The pear flavor is absolutely spot on (had a pear tree growing up in California)…and the ginger is way in the background…not the type you cook with in the shaker bottle, but the fresh ginger you grate or chop that needs a very light touch and has that peppery heat. I taste a slight sweet corn (the new white corn on the cob) flavor also in the middle before the last pear burst.

Grandmother to 3 teenaged girls and 5 young boys. (we all drink tea!) I began teatime in the Summer over 30 years ago when my children were little. We took a break from play for tea and snacks every day. My children loved tea time.
There are several tea houses close to my home and a Tea Festival in Boulder. Fort Collins is a bit of a foodie town. We brew lots of Beer (Fat Tire is one brand) and have several Spice Shops (Savory was one featured on Food Network).
Colorado State University is a mile from my home and the Rocky Mountains begin to climb at the end of my street. The climate is semi-arid with LOTS OF SUN AT 5000 feet. (Heavy Winter snows start in higher elevations). Living my whole life in Northern California (Silicon Valley) I have to admit that I LOVE IT HERE!!!
I attend a wonderful Greek Orthodox Church and enjoy cooking ethnic foods (all kinds). I am disabled with Migraines and Fibromyalgia.
