I had to leave work a bit early today for No. 2’s teacher conference. It’s too early for dinner, and yet, I’m somehow starving. But, since I discovered this morning that I gained 5 lbs since the last time I weighed myself, I am back on the program in a big way. Which means no snacking.
Instead, I thought I’d have some herbal or fruit blend on the theory that the liquid might help curb the hunger. Or at least that by the time I’d made , drunk it, and written a note about it, it would be time for dinner.
The chunky mix in the packet smells enough like pear, though I’m also smelling the papaya, pineapple, and peach flavoring. I over"leafed" significantly given the chunkiness.
The mix makes a liquor that is canary-yellow and translucent though not clear. It smells like pear (sometimes) but also like apple and oddly, a little like cinnamon even though there is no cinnamon in the blend that I can see.
The flavor is very, very sweet. Candy sweet. But the pear is definitely there, and even more in the aftertaste than in the sip.
I’m with those that say this isn’t my favorite pear blend, but it’s still a good one.
Flavors: Apple, Cinnamon, Fruity, Pear, Pineapple
