This tea is really good. I’m really surprised at how well the flavor comes through.
So often with flavors like this, the flavoring is added either too sparingly added and cannot be tasted, or the flavor is too heavily added and ends up tasting artificial. Here, it is perfect – not so strong that it tastes fake or masks the taste of the green tea, and not so light that I cannot taste the sweet, juicy flavor of Asian Pear.
The green tea is the strongest flavor of the cup – and it has a sweet, fresh taste. Slightly grassy and a little bit buttery. Very pleasant, and a nice pairing with the flavor of Asian Pear – which is sweet and delicious and very authentic tasting. It tastes as though I have just taken a bite of a crisp, juicy Asian Pear!
I also taste just a mild floral note coming through from the orange blossom. This isn’t a strong flavor, but the subtle contrasts it offers really pleasing to the palate. A really enjoyable tea. It’s great hot or cold – I think I prefer it iced, it is just so refreshing! Light and very thirst quenching. Nice!
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!
