If someone that never had a pear smelled this dry leaf, they would expect a pear to taste sour and also like dried prunes. I am really not getting pear from this, but hey, sometimes, the scent of the dry leaf is weird and the steep in wonderful, so I’ll stop being mean about it and just try.
Oh yes, that’s pear. Rest assured, no sourness or prunes. I love the spices , and although the pear notes could be a bit more natural, and the spices a bit more tame the combination with the spices is interesting. Pear has such a delicate flavour though, I feel like it’s getting somewhat ruined by all that ginger. And then the cardamom. The cinnamon would’ve been enough. I think I remember mj1851 wasn’t crazy about this, but I actually enjoy it. I can’t say that I would necessarily buy it, but it won’t be one of those samples that I feel resentful about and force myself to drink to make it disappear.
Just wanted to add that the company’s website definitely needs a bit of love, just saying.
