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.

This tea did not disappoint, and even the dry leaf was fragrant with mellow plum fruit flavors.  The stone-fruit taste of plum and apricot reminded me of some of my favorite oolong teas, with their trademark smooth earthy and fruity tones. The pear comes forward with the green tea taste, both a bit nutty and grassy at the same time.

This tea is best brewed while following the instructions, with cooler water and a two minute steep time.  To further bring out the fruit’s nature sweetness, consider adding a touch of honey to you mug.  Or give this tea a try as a cold brew and mix in a few fresh pear slices to dress it up.

This blend is juicy and fruity, against a savory green tea backdrop.  There’s a lovely buttery mouthfeel and the crisp-sweet note of pear on the aftertaste.  The blend isn’t too candy-like or over-flavored, but it’s also not too boring.  The plum and pear are nicely balanced in the overall palette of the tea and make for a very comforting, drinkable cup.

Jumpin’ Juniper White Tea from Pekoe Sip House. . . .

My real first name is Jennifer. My husband HATES the song Jennifer Juniper. But it was the first thing that came to mind while sipping on this tea…Jumpin’ Juniper White Tea from Pekoe Sip House. The song association made me chuckle. But the tasty tea made me SMILE!

Jumpin’ Juniper White Tea from Pekoe Sip House has a white tea for the base but also features juniper berries and raisins! I could smell the lovely berries upon opening the package. What a delight! This was also a NICE smelling white tea! It was slightly vegetal on the tongue, too! The herb and berry combination was truly unique. I can’t say as I have tried a tea quite like this before. Jumpin’ Juniper White Tea from Pekoe Sip House was even a little creamy, too! It has a very well rounded flavor!

Pekoe Breakfast Black Tea from Pekoe Sip House

Are you looking for that next good cup of breakfast tea to sip on?  Perhaps Pekoe Breakfast Black Tea from Pekoe Sip House is that cuppa!  It’s fairly bold, uplifting, energizing, and rich in both flavor and character.

Pekoe Breakfast Black Tea from Pekoe Sip House infuses to a marvelous shade of medium-dark brown with deep red-orange hue.  It smells like a breakfast tea would.  The flavor is bold, astringent-in-a-good-way, malty, woodsy all at the same time.  It’s not an average tasting breakfast tea.  Pekoe Breakfast Black Tea from Pekoe Sip House has that little ‘extra something’.  Perhaps it’s their quality or ratio of Indian and Chinese Black Teas they used.  It’s a blend of organic Assam, Nilgiri and China black teas, and Pekoe Breakfast.

I appreciate the fact that they went the extra mile with this wake-me-up of a tea.  Pekoe Breakfast Black Tea from Pekoe Sip House is something I can see myself keeping as a go-to tea for mornings and friends!

Plum & Pear Green Tea from Pekoe Sip House

Plum & Pear Green Tea from Pekoe Sip House there are so many things that interest me about this tea.  I am learning as I sip, actually!  First I have always wondered what plum and pear combos would taste like with different tea bases.  I think we have only ever reviewed one other Plum & Pear Tea at it was back in 2012 from New Mexico Tea Company and LiberTeas was the reviewer here at Sororitea Sisters.  But let’s talk about this Plum & Pear Green Tea from Pekoe Sip House this time around!

Plum & Pear Green Tea from Pekoe Sip House has similar ingredients with the exception of them NOT mentioning that their Plum & Pear Green Tea from Pekoe Sip House contains PAN FRIED green tea.  I will say that Plum & Pear Green Tea from Pekoe Sip House TASTES wonderful!  I agree that THIS tea is gently flavored.  The pear and plum flavors are in no way over the top!  They are more of an assist.  The Green Tea flavor is upfront and the plum, pear, and floral flavors are more subtle.

As the tea cools at room temperature I can taste the plum and pear come out to play more.  This leads me to believe that they will stand out even more if and when iced.  Yup!  I am really liking this one!  I’m also interested in any other companies that have a Pear and Plum combo out there that is heavily flavored.  Not that I don’t like this one or appreciate it because I DO I am just curious if anything!  Plum & Pear Green Tea from Pekoe Sip House is a VERY NICELY DONE flavored green!  Two thumbs up!
