From Simpson & Vail

Pears, popularized in France, are now found growing abundantly in the Pacific Northwest of the United States. This black tea blend has a strong aroma, but when brewed the deep amber cup reveals a taste that is subtle, fresh and delicious.

Ingredients: black teas, pear flavor, alfalfa leaf and marigold petals.

Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

Autumn Harvest! This month I’ll be sampling teas out of my collection that feature flavors common of autumn harvestables like cranberries, pomegranates, pears, apples, pumpkins, grapes, sweet potatoes, beetroots, figs, dates, persimmons, nuts, and herbs, among others! This particular tea was a single-serving sample I got from the Here’s Hoping Teabox, so thank you so much to tea-sipper for organizing and all participants of the box!

Like the Plum Black which had a really tasty black base, this tea also has a very smooth base; it’s slightly malty with a lot of natural citrus notes. The pear flavor is very juicy and natural tasting, and on par with my favorite pear-flavored tea I’ve had yet, 52Teas Pear Chai (which I’d say I like just a bit more than this, just because I think the juicy pear flavor goes a bit better on a green base than a black base). I’m also getting a slightly honey/floral note right at the finish of the sip which is very pleasant. As a fruity black morning cuppa, this is nice and I’m glad I had a chance to try it.

Here’s Hoping TTB

Pear is a flavor that seems hard to capture in a tea and I was intrigued by the fact that this one had a black tea base instead of the more typical white or green. It definitely smells like pears and has a strong, sweet fruity flavor. But to me, it tasted more like apple than pear. Quite good, but not exactly what I was hoping for.

Flavors: Apple, Pear, Sweet

First tasting note for this tea! You pear fans really need to try this one! Oh wow, THIS is a pear tea. I wanted to try one of S&V’s pear teas and went with this one instead of the ginger pear. I wanted pure pear. And this pear is so pure it’s almost like I’m drinking pear juice. The black tea along with the lovely, sweet, juicy, fragrant pear is mid-strength and has that bright flavor that pairs well with fruit flavors. The black tea really lets this very strong pear flavor shine. This is absolutely the best pear tea I’ve found and the search stops here for a pear tea! Amazing stuff.
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 teaspoons for a full mug// few minutes after boiling // 3 minute steep
Steep #2 // just boiled // 3-4 minute steep

Goodness! I don’t care for fruity flavored tea but your review made me want to guzzle this. Good one, tea-sipper!

This could be the tea to have as an iced tea this summer! Great review!
