Wow, this tastes exactly like the tea version of a Gewurtztraminer wine I used to drink. I liked the wine, not so much the tea. It definitely tastes of pear and maybe a bit of honey (the stuff the bees make, not the candy). I don’t get anything spicy out of it, and it’s very astringent. I will give them points for unique, as I don’t think I’ve ever tasted anything quite like this, but I just don’t like it.

Flavors: Astringent, Honey, Pear

205 °F / 96 °C 4 min, 0 sec 4 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

Wife, mom of 2 crazy young kids (and 3 cats, if they count). Used to be a professional tree hugger, now I stay at home hobbit-like and teach the kids to love the trees. Also hobbit-like, I love reading, tea, second breakfasts, cooking and food in general, and gardens. (I can’t really say I love gardening since where I live, it’s too dratted hot for too much of the year to actually do it.) I am always on the search for a good flavored decaf black tea. Suggestions are more than welcome!

I tend to like my teas strong, so I use more than most people when I brew. Don’t be put off a tea because I say I used 4 tsp to brew 12 oz or something – that’s just me.

PS – Unlike a hobbit, my toes are not furry. I just feel the need to clarify.
