4 Tasting Notes


I really wanted to love this tea. The pear aroma is incredibly cloying and intoxicating, but unfortunately, if you let the tea steep for longer than a minute, it becomes incredibly bitter.

For someone like me, who lets the tea steep infinitely long, this is a huge drawback. Also, I’m quite suspicious of the white tea hype in general, and this has proved to be once again disappointing.


I hear you on the disappointment, but don’t let celestial seasonings ruin your view of anything. I speak from experience. :( They have such delicious sounding products, but every time I try something I’m really sad.

Quite sure that I’m addicted to this stuff; I have several cups nightly. I don’t know if it actually induces any sensation of drowsiness, but it’s a lovely tea nonetheless. When I first tasted it, it was a bit too different from my regular fare of oolong and green teas, but I persisted.

Its warm steam travels like velvet with an oh-so-slight kick to clear any clogged sinuses. Very full and rich on the tongue – as much as hot water plus herbs can be.

Moorish Mint actually has a nice backbone to it, unlike many other mint teas which are either liquid Altoids or simply greenish water.

A nice balance of simplicity and flavor.

Less obvious and harsh than many other Earl Grey teas I’ve had. It’s quite floral and light for being a black tea, and never attains any bitterness or unpleasant taste if left to steep too long.

Possibly a bit weak-tasting, but I prefer my teas extra-strong.

200 °F / 93 °C 8 min or more
