drank Pear Blossom by DAVIDsTEA
1780 tasting notes

Not my favourite pear offering from DAVIDsTEA. After two rounds of iced Pear Blossom, I don’t think I’ll be picking up more. The dry leaf smells more like pear than it tastes. In flavour, I get a mix of pear, pineapple, and artificial peach. I think it’s that artificial peach flavouring that has been added that especially screws with the overall pear-ness of this blend. Then there’s the stevia, which while isn’t nearly as bad here as in other blends, the blend could have easily done without it.

Speaking of, I found a massive Bosc pear at Safeway the other day. Those are my favourite, but I’m curious how this one will taste because it’s quite literally the size and shape of a grapefruit, so way larger than an Asian pear too, which is something else. Looks nothing like a pear but still has that classic Bosc pear skin on it.

This blend makes me miss the Poached Pear blend from last year, which had cinnamon sugar doughy notes alongside a green rooibos base, and of course, I’m also a fan of Ginger Pear. This one is so flat in comparison. There’s worse, for sure, but there are better pear teas out there, in my opinion.
