I used a teaspoon of leaf to 8 ounces of 185 water and intended to steep for 3 minutes. My timer didn't go off and I oversteeped the leaf. It tasted alright, but I could taste the residue of flavor in my mouth and didn't go in for that too well. So I tried again to prepare it properly, and the second time I succeeded.
I steeped the teaspoon for three minutes this time in 185 degree water and this time the liquor poured out palest honey in color rather than a strong yellow gold color. The flavor is certainly sweet. While I'm not generally crazy for flavored teas, pear is an enticing flavor to me and darned if this company hasn't gotten the flavor down quite well. The ripe pear taste is clear and not oily or artificial tasting. It's a clear bosc style pear with real edge to it. There's even a pleasant creamy honey flavor that comes out along with the pear as the tea cools a bit in the cup.
This tea is quite enjoyable when you are wanting something not too serious in the tea department. I liked it to share with my husband in the afternoon. I think it would be great to serve to kids in lieu of sugar laden colas or juice. Icing this tea is a logical thing to explore with warmer weather right around the corner (well, fingers crossed, anyway!).
This is a very nice, very well done pear flavored tea. I haven't had another that even comes close to getting pear correctly. I can recommend this heartily to anyone seeking a good tasting pear tea for whatever reason. The green tea is mild and basically a non entity in this blend as far as tasting goes. It's so mild that it's pleasant and makes a great vehicle to really enjoy the well done pear flavor.
