This tea is really good. I’m really surprised at how well the flavor comes through.
So often with flavors like this, the flavoring is added either too sparingly added and cannot be tasted, or the flavor is too heavily added and ends up tasting artificial. Here, it is perfect – not so strong that it tastes fake or masks the taste of the green tea, and not so light that I cannot taste the sweet, juicy flavor of Asian Pear.
The green tea is the strongest flavor of the cup – and it has a sweet, fresh taste. Slightly grassy and a little bit buttery. Very pleasant, and a nice pairing with the flavor of Asian Pear – which is sweet and delicious and very authentic tasting. It tastes as though I have just taken a bite of a crisp, juicy Asian Pear!
I also taste just a mild floral note coming through from the orange blossom. This isn’t a strong flavor, but the subtle contrasts it offers really pleasing to the palate. A really enjoyable tea. It’s great hot or cold – I think I prefer it iced, it is just so refreshing! Light and very thirst quenching. Nice!
