Sweet memories of childhood. Closing my eyes, I am eleven again, sitting in the arms of a pear tree, eating the ripe fruit, not a care in the world. A moment captured in time, fleeting yet enduring, contained within the steeping tealeaves.
This tea was first blended to show how meticulous artisan blending techniques can properly balance medium-tannic Young Hyson green teas (mountainous harvests) with the character of fruits. Pears are one of the world's most popular fruits, having been cultivated in China for millennia. In this tea, natural pear enhances the green tea's soft, slightly-tannic tones. Great served iced or hot!
Double-chambered to allow for the most flavorful infusion from individually cut leaves.
"We use some of the teas for smoking our food products and the flavor they pick up is great, especially the combination of Pear and Berry with our Duck Breast." - ICON Calvin Belknap
