I had this tea last night, as the first of my new Janet’s samples to break in, partly because this was the first one she mentioned was new. Now, most people who now me know that I am not fond of rooibos, however, Bear With Me was kind enough to share some of his favourites, and he said they were better than DAVIDs’ rooibos. True enough, I liked the few he let me try, so I was game to try more. I love pear, so this one intrigued me.
By all rights, I should not like this tea. Not only is the dry leaf very rooisbos-y, but it is a stronger rooibos taste….but then, the crisp clean pear comes to the front and saves the day. This tea is a bit of a conundrum…I shouldn’t like it, but I do. I’ll have to have more to see whether I need more of this in my collection, like plum and rainbow rooibos.
