Thumbs down."If you enjoy a Jolly Ranchers or a candy pear flavor, this may be a great tea for you as the base is a nice quality Sencha. But, it is not a tea for me."

Though, Culinary Teas website may not be snazziest tea website, take a little time to look around! They have some great tea info, and I love their tea gift boxes!

I just recently fell in love with one of Culinary Tea's black teas and have it in my cart to order. But this review is about Pear Sencha Green Tea and I'm afraid I can not give it a good review.

I have had a few pear flavored teas that I enjoyed, and I love a good Sencha green so I thought I'd give this a try. When I opened the package, the smell of pear was strong, but it was a very candy-like pear smell. However, I've really learned not to judge a tea by it's smell!

So I brewed a cup using a lower than boil water so I wouldn't scorch the green tea. It was a very pretty light golden brew, like a Sencha should be. But the flavor was overwhelmed with a candy pear flavor - reminding me of my childhood days of eating Jolly Ranchers.

I sipped the tea, trying to get a good sense of this tea, and even let it cool, because sometimes the flavor changes a bit. I could tell that the Sencha was one I would really like, but I could not get past that candy flavor! In fact, so much so, that I could not finish the cup of tea.

If you enjoy a Jolly Ranchers or a candy pear flavor, this may be a great tea for you as the base is a nice quality Sencha. But, it is not a tea for me. I can not take a candy flavor, especially when it overpowers the base tea.
