A winning pear

There’s nothing more comforting than a perfectly ripe pear. And this deliciously delicate blend captures all the flavour and aroma of sweet, refreshing bosc pear at its peak. With a hint of spice and a super-healthy base of rooibos, it’s equally at home on the breakfast table or alongside your favourite dessert. Try it in your favourite morning oatmeal, or use it to poach fresh fruits and serve over vanilla ice cream. It’s your new secret ingredient.

I feel like this tea has been sitting in my cupboard for ages (because it has). I stocked up bigtime on this one when it was discontinued and then forgotten it in the madness that is my tea cupboard. With the weather cooling down a little, I decided to bring my tin of Poached Pear to keep in my desk at work and boy has this been a good decision! Of the four teas that I keep in my desk, this one is the one I reach for most. I have enough left at this point for about 2 PSs and while I will miss this one and the memories that it brings back, I will be glad to be getting another tin out of my collection and moving a new tin into my desk.

This was good – heavy on the cinnamon/baked goods vibes with some nondescript fruit sweetness in the background. Not sure it lives up to the name, but it was enjoyable.

I’m not a huge fan of this because the cinnamon is a bit too strong for me. It’s a shame because the pear flavor is really quite lovely. I’m not a fan of most red rooibos blends, so I’m very happy the base of this tea is a green rooibos. I imagine it’d be quite nice as a latte. I don’t find that it’s all that sweet, at least not to the extent that I’d consider it a dessert tea.

I only bought a 50g bag and that’s probably enough. I might try steeping it in apple cider in the next few days to determine whether or not I want to keep what’s left. I’m earnestly trying to make my collection a bit more manageable by only keeping teas I really love and/or teas I will really look forward to drinking. I’m not certain this is one of them. Curse you, cinnamon!

I had a free cup of tea and chose this one. Can honestly say I didn’t really like it. It wasn’t awful, but not a huge fan of the spice aspect. Most likely won’t buy.

Green rooibos isn’t too common, so this was kind of nice because it was different. To me, this tastes kind of like a pear that isn’t quite ripe. Overall, it was actually pretty good and not sickly sweet like a lot of their blends have been lately.

My mom LOVED this one when they were sampling it, so I got her a tin for her birthday


You are a good daughter!

This tea was alright hot but I didn’t quite like it iced. I will finish my stash but won’t be buying anymore.

If you like pears, you will definitely like this tea. It is very strong and has a very light, clean aftertaste. It is supposedly a dessert tea, but I don’t feel like it deserves dessert status… it just cannot compare to the coconut cream pie.

I believe I had a sample of this back when this was first introduced, but today was my first proper cup. This is one of the better pear teas I’ve had, I think… A nice mix of sweet with a little bit of spice in there, as well. I already have a large stash of Ginger Pear, though, so I don’t know if I should pick up any more of this, sadly.

Oh no, cupboard is all bloated from a bunch of DAVIDs teas I picked up yesterday evening. My mom and I went to smell the new teas, and even though I didn’t want all of them, the sales associate measured 20g each of Hangover Helper and Ginger Peach Moringa. I was wondering why there were so many baggies and why the total was more than expected but didn’t think she would do that. Sigh.

My mom is a huge fan of Bosc pears so this was a must. I would say that this is around 50/50 in apple and pear flavours. It’s also sweeter than their other pear-flavoured teas. Two thumbs up for using green rooibos instead of red. I would have liked more cinnamon. There’s just something lacking here. Or maybe I’m mentally comparing it to Cranberry Pear and Ginger Pear too much. Both have more pear flavour, and the latter is spicier, at least. I wouldn’t get more but it won’t be too hard for two people to finish the 22g we picked up either.

Not enough cinnamon? Thank goodness. :)


You have a point there!

I am not a fan of cinnamon in teas, and DT does tend to overwhelm with it at times.


Haha your cupboard is “bloated”


At least you can do returns or DAVIDs. Or perhaps you can use them in a swap??


I’ll just suck it up and try them, especially since the Ginger Peach Moringa smells alright, anyway.

This came out “again” today and, having not had this the first time david’s was selling, i stopped by to pick some up since i DO enjoy pear teas. Also, herbal teas are something i’m allowed to pick up here and there as i don’t have an abundance of them. Overall thoughts on this one? Not bad but not a 90’s sort of tea for me. I’m not sure this really reminds me of POACHED pears, but it is a pretty typical pear tea. There’s a bit much in the way of cinnamon to me, but it comes and goes with various sips, so it’s not the end of the world to me. A decent cup, though i’m not sure yet if i’ll pick up 50g. especially with the tea festival coming up, and my small purchase of picking up more french toast.
