53 Tasting Notes
Love this. Love the fruity smell and strong oolong finish.
Sorry, I’m biased :)
Oh man. Oh, oh man. Been looking forward to this tea after having read through everyone else’s tasting notes. Picked it up in Select last week. My first from Art of Tea.
Let me keep it simple: if you like pear, you’ll love this tea.
Now, I happen to be a big fan of pears so that works just fine for me. As far as the other elements, I’m thinking about the caramel in particular, I didn’t get much of that. Really, just pear. In fact, when I sought a particular flavor out that I thought might be coming through I was just hit with…more pear. Mind you, this is not a bad thing. In fact, this is easily one of the better rooiboses I’ve had in a while, if not my favorite. It’s a lot of fruit, without being too much fruit, if that makes sense.
If you’re looking for a nice fruit blend and have had enough of the citrus, apple et. al, definitely give this one a shot! Great after dinner tea.
Whoo! Glad to see that you liked this one, Mike! I thought it was so good. I can’t believe how much it specifically tastes like pear!
Yeah! Thanks go to you for not only writing about it so wonderfully (and encouraging me), but also sending it to others (lucky takgoti!) to write other wonderful things about it ;)
Had to look it up… http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/D’Anjou comes to mind. Who knew they were called that…you learn something new everyday.
It’s funny you should say that about the caramel, because I was about to write about that in my next log of this tea. After getting more of this tea in and experimenting I found that the caramel very near disappeared for me at 7 minutes but was much more apparent at 5.
I thought it was pure pear which was fine with me. I think it’s difficult to find a true pear taste, so I didn’t care about the lack of caramel or anything else.
this one makes me cry! i love the idea…. but for some unknown reason i cannot taste caramel in teas unless it is butiki. stacy must whisper magic words or something?
