Commercial Description

Delicate and fragrant as a fresh-picked pear, this blend combines white tea, slivers of sweet pears, and natural pear flavor. It may be one of the smoothest blends you've tasted, providing a gentle lift any time of day. White tea, whose silvery buds are the least processed of all teas, contains the highest amount of antioxidants.

This tea was "something else". It was my first nominally pear-flavored tea, but most of the experience was of something else. This was one of the few teas I've tried where the aromas were consistently the same from dry bag to cup to wet bag, but the taste was something else.

I found the aroma remarkably floral, enough that I unsuccessfully searched the dry and wet bag for petals. It wasn't floral in the unmistakable presentations of jasmine, lavender or rose, but more like some diluted combination of lilac, honeysuckle and iris. The taste was tea-dominant, but still more floral than pear-like, though the pear revealed itself much better to tongue than nostrils. If you strip out the flowery and faintly fruity elements, this is remarkably rich for a white tea. I would love to try just the base tea, without the flavorings. I bet it's very good—perhaps better by itself than with the pear/floral veneer, which I found a little disjointed. The tea also was fairly astringent, especially in the aftertaste, where it started to accumulate a little too much "witch hazel" effect after about 30 seconds, resolved either by taking another quick sip, or eating or drinking something else.

The pear taste is very nice. This tea is rather expensive compared to some other tea bag brands, since it is more like a loose leaf tea in a bag. There is no "tea dust" here. It is one of those rare cases in which you actually do get what you pay for. It is a little too pricey for me, but it makes a nice treat.

This was surprisingly strong for a white tea. I brewed it for 4 minutes using a little over a cup with the teabag, and it was too strong. I recommend either brewing for a shorter time or using the teabag to brew two or more cups at once. This tea is quite good for multiple infusions; the pear comes out more in later infusions.

The liquor is dark. There's a hint of sweetness and some bitterness, a fair amount of sourness, and a lot of astringency. I would not describe this tea as "delicate".

One thing I like about this tea, however, is that the tea dominates the aroma; the pear is subtle and not overdone.
