drank Poached Pear by DAVIDsTEA
308 tasting notes

I’m not a huge fan of this because the cinnamon is a bit too strong for me. It’s a shame because the pear flavor is really quite lovely. I’m not a fan of most red rooibos blends, so I’m very happy the base of this tea is a green rooibos. I imagine it’d be quite nice as a latte. I don’t find that it’s all that sweet, at least not to the extent that I’d consider it a dessert tea.

I only bought a 50g bag and that’s probably enough. I might try steeping it in apple cider in the next few days to determine whether or not I want to keep what’s left. I’m earnestly trying to make my collection a bit more manageable by only keeping teas I really love and/or teas I will really look forward to drinking. I’m not certain this is one of them. Curse you, cinnamon!

Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Pear
