Sweet, juicy and just a down right delectable green tea, who knew pear paired so well with top quality Sencha.
I must admit that I am somewhat biased when it comes to pear flavored green teas because I developed a pear flavored green tea that I thought was out of this world.
However, this is a pretty good pear tea!
The green tea base is a Sencha (although I do not know if it’s Japanese or Chinese), and it delivers a light-bodied, sweet taste. It has a buttery quality and imparts a soft, creamy mouthfeel. There is some grassy taste to the tea but it is not a strong, off-putting grassy flavor. It is more like an agreeable grassy/buttered vegetable taste.
The pear flavor is soft and juicy – just like a pear should be! The buttery/grassy notes of the Sencha work very well with the pear flavor. These two flavors aren’t competing with one another, they are content to share the spotlight with each other.
This is a tea that I prefer iced to hot, although it is good as a hot beverage too. If you like your tea sweet, try this with a little drizzle of honey – the results are quite delectable!
A very good pear tea. Not the best that I’ve tried (then again, I am biased, remember?) If you like pear, you should definitely give this one a try.
Anne started her journey with tea as a casual drinker and became more serious about her tea drinking when she realized that she couldn't drink coffee. Shortly thereafter, she started becoming obsessed with the beverage and she started creating small-batch, artisan blends of tea that she sold online as LiberTEAS. After a few years, she realized she wasn't cut out to be the sole proprietor of a business so she closed LiberTEAS and started reviewing teas online. She met Jennifer through another blog that they both reviewed for and they decided to start their own review blog. This review blog!
Throughout her journey as a tea reviewer, she discovered 52Teas and became enamored with the idea of creating a new tea every week. When the founder of 52Teas decided he wanted to move on, he offered the business to Anne but knowing that she wasn't cut out to be a sole proprietor, she instead offered the company to her oldest daughter who employs her as the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas!
