Its OK"The tea base dominates the cup and the fruit (which you could have probably just as well passed off to me as apple or a number of other fruits) offers a bit of natural sweetness to the finish. "

zhiwhitepear"Another exclusive Zhi blend. We take our exquisite top grade Fair Trade India white bai mudan tea leaves and blend them with tiny organic apple pieces and natural pear flavor. The resulting tea is simply divine. Exceptionally light and crisp, this makes an outstanding iced tea, as well." --- Zhi website.

Pear is one of the those flavors in tea blends that I am attracted to but can never seem to find exactly what I am looking for. Some have flavor profiles that are just too in your face and, despite tasting very authentic, are just kinda too much. While others are just kinda blah and need some tweaking. Zhi is one of those companies that I have grown to like and I always look forward to sampling their creations. I find that they use decent quality leaves and often some pretty mind-blowing flavors--what more can a girl ask for?

I brewed my leaves according to Zhi's instructions. This is one of those blends that has a more quiet flavor profile. The white tea base is on the stronger side is fairly floral with a touch of dryness on my tongue. Due to the very mild flavor profile, I added some rock cane sugar to sweeten my cup and hopefully awaken the pear. Even with a bit of sweetener, this still has a relatively mild flavor profile. The tea base dominates the cup and the fruit (which you could have probably just as well passed off to me as apple or a number of other fruits) offers a bit of natural sweetness to the finish.

While there is nothing wrong with this cup, I do feel that this is not Zhi's best white tea offering. The white tea base is of decent quality and that in and of itself makes this worth consideration. However, the flavor profile is very mild and if I were selecting a flavored white tea from Zhi this would likely not be my first choice. That said, if you are curious about it, then I would suggest at least picking up a sample because it by no means bad.
