I neither taste nor smell anything but lemongrass in this tea. There is not even a hint of vanilla or pear anywhere. I don’t understand why it is called Vanilla Pear. Why would lemongrass even need to be part of the blend? The Vanilla Orchid tea is so lovely & full of wonderful vanilla flavor. I was hoping the Vanilla Pear would be the same, with the addition of pear notes. Very disappointed 😞
The flavor is lovely and the smell is amazing! This is one of my favorite teas. My only complaint is the consistency of the tea leaves—after using a fine mesh strainer, there are still a lot of tiny particles in the tea water. I usually pour it through another strainer to get those out. Honestly though, this tea is worth the extra effort.
