drank Rooibos Poire by Lupicia
2584 tasting notes

I received a surprise box in the mail from derk yesterday that turned my day around! Thank you, derk! It came at just the right time.

Last night I was sleepy but couldn’t sleep so I stayed up to read. Then the dogs went nuts barking after midnight and I went out with them to investigate. When I came back in from enjoying the stars and the nearly full moon in the gorgeous inky sky, I wanted some tea to help me finish my chapter but it needed to be caffeine free.

I didn’t realize this was green rooibos at first but I am ecstatic that it is. I find green quite enjoyable, and the flavor was lightly sweet, smooth, and soothing. Pears are the gentlest fruit to me, lacking any bite or tart tang most of the time. Green rooibos was just the right base for the pear flavor, and while the pear was delicate it was still satisfying. I would say this had a medium body that bordered on creamy and was overall a great cup to wrap your hands around in the wee hours and say “mmmmmmm.”

Perfect pear-ing. Or should I say pear-fect pairing?

You’re welcome. This actually came from Cameron. After Kiki and I both had a cup and you left a comment expressing interest, I had to save the remainder to forward to you. Glad it satisfied :)

Bio

I am a music teacher, tutor, and former homeschool mom (25 years!) who started drinking loose leaf tea about twelve years ago! My daughters and I have tea every day, and we are frequently joined by my students or friends for “tea time.” Now my hubby joins us, too. His tastes have evolved from Tetley with milk and sugar to mostly unadorned greens and oolongs.

We have learned so much history, geography, and culture in this journey.

I am also reviewing for Sororitea Sisters now!

My avatar is a mole in a teacup! Long story…
