drank White Pear by Teaopia
1759 tasting notes

Disappointing. I’ve had far too many misses at teaopia lately. It makes me wonder if their grade of tea is sub-par, or if DT’s just uses extra premium. Either way, I am falling out of love with this tea establishment, tea by tea.
The tea itself was not bad, but again, not great. I get the sense that a similar tea from DT would go a step beyond to actually impress me.
One thing I do appreciate is that they use a Tea Master, so I’m not left housing the bag in my cup until I either finish it or find a convenient time/place to dispose.
Anyhow, I digress… the tea! I could taste the white, it was definitely not a premium white. I found it scratchy and a little grassy. I think the rose is what made me itch. Am I the only one that ever gets that sensation from teas?? bah…
The pear was hiding behind the tea, peeking out every now and then but not really making itself known. I wish it had come out to play more- and this, despite the add of some rock sugar!
Even still, there was something mildly pleasant about this tea. I enjoyed it much more than the Mango white they have. There was some depth as well, which I think rounded it out some. Overall, the Strawberry white at DT’s is the one to beat. I almost wish I’d found that one later on so that these wouldn’t fall so short! Standing apart from it though, this one is pretty decent. Maybe my earlier statement of “disappointing” was a little harsh.

Let’s see… I’m a tea and workout fanatic, I work in HR, and most of my friends consider me to be an egg. White on the outside, Asian on the inside :)
-from philosophy to food, I love it all
Otherwise, what you see is what you get! I can be very straightforward and yet shy.

Also, I’ve started taking tea sommelier classes and it is an absolute blast! Well, so far I’ve only finished the first out of eight courses, but I am really looking forward to the next one.

Anyhow, if your curious as to how I rate things, this is how I work…

Like eating dirt, or some other unsanitary indelicacy that mentioning in my profile here would likely get me banned.
I don’t think I’ve found cause to banish a tea to the wasteland yet though so who knows what it’d inspire ;P

You know that expression “Don’t throw the baby out with the bathwater”? I imagine drinking that water would be terrible enough to warrant this rating!
I’d never make my enemy drink this, but perhaps I’d throw it at them. Good thing I don’t have any enemies!

This is “tea”?? I tried finishing the cup… but my body rejected it. There may be others who enjoy this tea, but it’s beyond me!

I tried liking it, and I can almost get there! I certainly don’t hate it, but something is holding me back. Allergies? Men in white suits? who knows… certainly not me!

Lovely tea! Not my all time fave but close. I likely wouldn’t repurchase, but may decide to based on many factors: price, accessibility, whether it fills a “tea gap”, medicinal applications, and how often I crave it.
Every once in awhile I find the sweet spot that bumps these up to 90+. Those are the days I need to buy a lotto ticket!

Sweet Camellia! this is realllly good tea! Don’t talk to me until I’ve finished my cup…

Tea of the gods. I would do anything to get my hands on more of this liquid gold!
