Sipdown of this one tonight (stealing the term from TeaEqualsBliss !)
Well, I managed to make a pretty good cup of it for my last one. This tastes the way I initially remembered the tea, light and a touch sweet, with a fragrant pear flavour. It’s really rather nice tonight, actually. Enough to bump it up a few notches on the rating scale. I think I’ll keep looking for a pear-flavoured tea though, since this one’s now only available in 50g size online, and I don’t think I want that much of it in my cupboard. Also, it’s finicky :P
ETA: Goodbye Sencha Pear. Steeped this a second time and… it’s just not very flavourful. Kept the time to 3 minutes as I know this one gets bitter easily, but perhaps that wasn’t enough. Either way, I suspect I’ll never drink this one again. Sad sad.
