As with many tea Forte - it's all about packaging and presentation. tea Forte is my go-to when I want a showy gift - but the teas themselves are not the best ever - but they are very good. This one - Ginger Pear (More like Fruit and Pear) is tasty and sweet - good hot or iced but you must steep it at least 4-5 minutes. Very pale (white tea) and fruity scented. Less noticeable on the ginger. I like Republic of Teas ginger peach much better - but this is a lovely spring/summer tea. Please don;t add dairy to this one - just drink it as-is or add a wee bit of honey/sweetener if you like (might be nice over ice).

I thought this tea was light and refreshing, with fruity (not too overwhelmingly like pear) and slightly tangy (very mildly ginger) flavors. I steeped it for about six minutes and got a mild but noticeable ginger flavor. There are no toasty aromas or flavors at all from the white tea, which I liked. I was given this as a sample so I can't really gauge its value - I chose a middle number.

The tea bag has pretty broken pieces of leaf. Brews up a hazy greenish-colored cup.

The pear aroma is just the right strength, and blends well with the base tea. I don't notice the ginger much at all. Ginger is a strong flavor and I expect it to add a bit of edge or spiciness, as well as warmth, and I sense none of that.

Flavor is naturally sweet, even without adding anything, and has almost no bitterness. Finish is very smooth. The one thing I don't like about this blend is that the pear flavoring tastes somewhat artificial, especially in the finish, more like pear-flavored candy than actual fruit.

If I were reworking this blend I'd use a stronger-flavored tea and more ginger, and I'd do something to get the pear flavoring more natural.

Relatively pleasant drinking, but not something I'd choose on my own, and expensive for what it is.
