I love pear in tea, but wasn’t sure how it would pair (ha ha) with chai spices. It’s often a fairly subtle flavour and easily overwhelmed. Strangely, the aroma from the dry tea was very bubblegum to me, maybe with a hint of pear? The brewed tea did taste more like pear, however, and chai spices, heavy on the cardamom. End result was not bad, but not pear-y or unique enough for me to want more. One note – I did pick up on the green base here with some nice umami notes, which is always a plus for me with flavoured greens.
