Autumn Harvest! I got this sampler from Ost’s cupboard sale, so thank you Ost! This tea is apparently a pear/prickly pear flavored tea, which really interests me (I love prickly pear candies)!
The tea steeps a very dark yellow color, and smells berry sweet with some floral notes. The flavor isn’t very noticably pear, though. I’m getting more of a watered down pineapple, lacking its tanginess, a very soft and mellow strawberry, and a floral sweetness, but I’m not tasting pear at all. It actually is reminding me a bit of that pomegranate/dragonfruit white/green blend I had a few nights ago, just lacking the pomegranate berry flavor. But it has that same light, silky mouthfeel, gentle fruitiness, and floral overtones.
It’s fine, but a bit underwhelming. For something advertising prickly pear, I was really hoping for that particular note!
Flavors: Floral, Pineapple, Strawberry, Sweet
