Vanilla and pears are two of my favorite things, so I was excited to try Tea Forte's Vanilla Pear White Tea. Fortunately, it lived up to my expectations. Like most white teas, it requires careful preparation. Over-steeping or using water that is too hot will ruin the fairly delicate flavor. I don't get too much in the way of vanilla scent or flavor. Pear, apple and ginger are the dominant flavors. The brew has that warm, golden quality that I associate with the combination of pear and ginger. I like this tea a great deal but I really wanted that missing vanilla piece.
