Oddly enough, I sampled this tea at a Seasons 52 restaurant. I loved it so much that I took the empty pyramid-shaped box home and tracked it down online. This tea is very flavorful and has just the right amount of ginger in it. Some teas infused with ginger are too overpowering. This tea is the perfect blend of pear and ginger. I would highly recommend it to anyone who likes a light fruity tea with just a hint of ginger in it.
I was originally gifted a sample of this tea and loved it so much that I had to order more. Unfortunately what I received in my order tasted very different. This tea is much heavier on the ginger than before and lighter on the pear. I barely make it through half a cup because of how strong the ginger is. I don't know if the blend has been intentionally changed or if I received an irregular batch. I've tried to contact Tea Forte customer service for answers but have received zero response. If you look at prior reviews you will find the the odd review here and there with the same complaints of a bad batch or changed recipe so I guess just know that you might be playing "tea roulette" when you order this.
