Pear WhiteThe TeaCupany
This is a lovely cup of white tea. I struggled to taste the pear and the ginger was more subtle than the packaging implied, but this resulted in a balanced and soothing coat of flavor.
In fact I think that’s the theme of this tea. Upon careful recollection, I can’t quite place my finger on precisely what, besides peach and ginger, comprises the center of the tea’s flavor.
And weirdly enough I caught a whiff of what resembled my father’s favorite IPA beer while this was steeping, and the taste of hops was there, too, dancing ghoulishly on the tip of my tongue before melting away.
Plus if you taste it carefully, there’s the tiiiiiniest hint of mint underlying the whole flavor profile.
Overall, a very well-rounded cup, not too sweet but not bitter at all, with little dazzling, ephemeral shimmers of unexpected flavors tiptoeing in a circle around a mysterious but refreshing prima donna core of pure white tea.
Flavors: Cucumber, Ginger, Herbs, Hops, Mint, Peach
This is a great tea! My boyfriend has bought this and I was very skeptical to try it because I have tried some white teas before that have been very bitter. I first tried this hot and it was good, not bitter at all and had a very nice flavor. The flavor was not too strong or too weak and very balanced between ginger and pear. Today I made it iced and it was even better! Still had the same flavor characters when iced.
Flavors: Fruity, Ginger, Pear
Not my thing! I enjoy white tea in general, but the ginger and pear overwhelm it, and aren’t particularly sweet. Can’t seem to brew it in a way I enjoy without adding sugar. It sounds like such an alluring combination that guests are gradually taking it off my hands.
Flavors: Ginger, Pear, Vegetal
