I can’t believe I am enjoying a ginger tea to the point that I am happily resteeping! I NEED ginger for digestive issues but I have never enjoyed it, especially when there is enough of it to actually do you some good. It is hot, it is spicy, and I am a plain vanilla kind of gal.
One thing I do hold dear is licorice root. I know a lot of people don’t care for it, but I love the sweetness and body it gives to a blend and I prefer it to stevia…and that’s an understatement.
I have the loose leaf version of this tea and the website warns that the pyramid version may have slightly different ingredients so keep that in my mind if you decide to try it.
The aroma is GINGER, first, foremost, front and center. Since it is the first ingredient listed I assume it constitutes more of the blend. The first sip is soft and sweet, and the more you drink, the more the ginger builds.
Pear is a delicate flavor to me even when eating a fresh pear right out of hand, so pear with ginger is no contest. Ginger is definitely going to dominate. The nice thing is that you get little fruity flavors peeking now and again, adding another dimension to the tea. The white tea base is a nice little boost of antioxidants.
The tin lists all of the ingredients as being organic, so another bonus! Finally, a ginger winner for me! This is one I would definitely restock and consider it a treat to drink when feeling under the weather, or just a cup to enjoy.

Pear flavored white tea? I’m in! Today I would love to tell you about my tea time with Perfectly Pear from Sloane Tea.
Sloane stresses the white tea they use in this white loose leaf is plucked only during a few short weeks in spring and that it is a Bai Mu Dan white from the Fujian province of China, also known as “white peony”.
It pairs perfectly with the sweet Asian pear and I would agree! Their product description says it’s a mouth-watering masterpiece that is both delicate and inspiring. I, too, found Perfectly Pear from Sloane Tea to be smooth, sweet, and mouth-watering. The pear flavor is pleasant. It’s not overdone nor underdone.
This is also fantastic ICED and is a real thirst-quencher, that is for sure!
All of this is GOOD NEWS, right? Well, what is the BAD NEWS? Well, the bad news is that Perfectly Pear from Sloane Tea is currently sold out. But if you can ever get your hands on it – I would HIGHLY recommend it to anyone who likes pears and/or likes flavored white teas!
