Taster’s Review:

Oh yum!

This tastes so good.  I’m often afraid when it comes to pear flavored teas that the pear flavoring will be somewhat lacking, but, with this blend, the pear comes through quite nicely.  The plum tastes slightly tart, and this tartness is especially noticeable in the aftertaste, and the pear arrives at the start of the sip, and maintains its sweetness throughout.

I like that while there is some tartness to the plum, it isn’t a strong flavor.  I am not particularly fond of anything too terribly tart.  Here, the tartness is experienced primarilyin the aftertaste with a sort of tarty twinge on the tongue.  Not strong, but, somewhat acidic, like the sensation from a bit of the powder from a sour candy on the side of your tongue.  Together with the sweetness from the green tea and fruit flavors, it’s an intriguing contrast.

The green tea is a sweet, broth-y kind of green tea that has a creamy, mild vegetable taste to it.  Somewhat buttery, smooth and nicely complements the flavors of pear and plum.  It is a summery kind of flavor, something that I think would be excellent served iced, but, I am quite enjoying it now, on a chilly autumn afternoon, served hot.

Another enjoyable tea from New Mexico Tea Company!


Co-Founder/Co-Creator of SororiTea Sisters, Mad Tea Artist at 52Teas
Anne (aka the Mad Tea Artist) has celebrated her 29th birthday for many years now. She lives in the Pacific Northwest with her hubby and her youngest daughter. Her oldest daughter is married and has bestowed Anne with the proud title of "Gramma" and her grandson is about the cutest boy you ever did see.

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!
