Plum Pear Green from the Pekoe Sip House

I couldn’t resist giving Plum Pear Green tea a try from the Pekoe Sip House.  It’s nice to see a tea featuring these fruits.  I feel as though both plum and pear don’t get enough love in the fruit-flavored options of the world.  There’s plenty of peach and strawberry teas and candies, but not so many for plum or pear.

Organic Mango/Pear Deluxe White from ESP Emporium

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  White Where to Buy: ESP Emporium Tea Description: The natural friendship of “East meets West” is portrayed when we look at the flavor composition mango and pear in this organic blend.
