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.
Flavors: Citrus, Floral, Fruity, Honey, Malt, Pear, Smooth, Sweet
