Cinnamon Pear from 52Teas. . . . .

I served a number of teas to some friends yesterday and this one came out as the favorite flavored blend we tried. No big surprise since 52Teas is one of the best tea blending companies I have come across. I like the black tea base. It doesn’t bow down and disappear, but sails right along with the flavors. It isn’t super astringent like a lot of black tea bases in flavored blends. The cinnamon was nice – not red hot candy cinnamon but the kind of cinnamon levels you would expect in Grandma’s fruit pie. The pear aspect was a little harder for me because Read More

Perfectly Pear from Sloane Tea. . . . .

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 Read More

Bronte Sisters’ Black Tea Blend from Simpson And Vail

The first thing I noticed about this tea was the fruity, sweet smell. It smelled much more like fruit than tea. The tea ingredients include papaya and raspberry, and also marigold petals. I brewed myself a cup, and added a little raw sugar and a splash of coconut creamer. I should have left the sugar out because it is very sweet on it’s own. Almost too sweet if I’m being honest. It definitely has a very fruity taste and perfume. I didn’t taste to any floral notes which surprised me. I would say this would be an excellent tea for Read More

Golden West from Pacific Tea. . . . .

Golden West from Pacific Tea – I have to tell you – I wasn’t thinking I would like this fruity herbal offering – but I did! Golden West contains apple bits, rosehip peels, hibiscus, pineapple bits with rice flour, pear slices, coconut chips, ginger, natural flavour, and marigold petals. I wasn’t thrilled when I saw hibiscus but I set that aside based on all of the other ingredients in this blend of flavors. I figured it would be sweet but I was hoping it wasn’t going to be TOO sweet. Lucky for me – it’s sweetness was JUST RIGHT. This Read More

Sweet Pear from Dave and Solomons Tea

I love the idea of pears in teas more than my experience with them in the past. For some reason, I always detect something artificial and medicinal.. I think it might just be from the pear flavoring, unfortunately. I do well with pear jelly beans and candies, but the pear flavoring in tea bothers me. The scent of this tea is reassuring as it’s a nice balance of sweet pear and a rather woody rooibos. I’m really hoping that this pear lives up to its benign scent. Sipping… wow, this is a little strange. When I take a sip of Read More
