drank Pear by Southern Boy Teas
871 tasting notes

This is a delicious iced tea. This is one of the better SBT’s (although most of the ones I have tried have been good). The dry tea smells like sweet, candied pear. I am also getting a kind of white chocolate smell. Hmmmm….

I brewed for 3 minutes in 2 cups water, then filled the pitcher up with cold water and chilled over night.

Initially it tasted ok. Like flat black tea flavoured badly with some kind of pear taste. I added some white sugar and it improved quite a bit. The candied pear flavour returned. There was still the black tea base, but you could taste the pear on top. I added even more white sugar, and it was excellent. Not sure where the white chocolate smell went, but it did not come out in the taste – which is probably good. All in all, I added about 1/2 cup of white sugar for 2 liters, which is more than I usually like to add, but it tastes so good!!!

Stay tuned for the resteep…..

Edit: Made a resteep. Steeped for 4 minutes in 2 cups boiling water and then filled the pitcher with cold water and chilled overnight. I would say this is not even the same tea. The resteep is delicious. But it is much more just candy flavoured sweet black tea. Not much pear flavour. I did use less sweetener on the resteep then I did with the first steep.

I am a lifetime tea lover.

I did foray into the world of coffee for a period of time, but I returned to my true love. I still, however, enjoy a good cup of java.

My all time favorite tea is Earl Grey, which I drink every morning, the stronger the bergamot the better. I definitely prefer natural oil of bergamot to artificial flavouring.

I mostly like black and dark oolong teas. My current favs are Fujian blacks, Keemun and Assams, and Wuyi oolongs. I gravitate towards anything with lychee in it. I also drink a lot of herbal blends but am wary of hibiscus. I do not favour mate, or pu’erh tea, although I have found a few blends that I like. (I so badly want to like straight pu’erh tea but it all tastes gross to me. I keep trying though). Rooibos, green and white teas fall somewhere in the middle. I find myself gravitating towards heavily roasted oolongs and teas from Paris/France based companies.

I love iced teas and cold brews.

My current tea goal is to make the perfect cup of chai from scratch – almost there…I think.

I am in love with the whole experience of tea.
