I tend to find myself a bit skeptical when it comes to pear flavored teas, especially pear flavored green teas. That’s because back in my tea flavoring/blending days, I created what I felt was the very best pear flavored green tea, and I still have yet to find one that is as good.
But that doesn’t mean that I’m not enjoying this pear flavored green tea. Quite the opposite, actually. It’s really tasty!
The Chun Mee base is an interesting choice but it works surprisingly well with the delicate flavor of the pear. I say surprising because its been my experience that Chun Mee (also known as “Precious Eyebrow”) tends to have a strong “green tea” flavor – that is to say it tends to be a bit on the grassy side. With this stronger flavor, could the delicate sweetness of the pear shine through?
The answer is yes. I can taste the sweet, delicious flavor of pear, as well as the full-flavored Chun Mee. The Chun Mee is sweet, grassy with hints of seaweed. There are lovely hints of plum in there too, and these are very complementary to the notes of pear. The Chun Mee is more assertive than the pear flavor here, but, it doesn’t overwhelm it entirely.
A delicious pear flavored green with a very enticing composition of flavors.
