Pear & Pistachio Tea

Pear and Pistachio tea by Biscuit and blend

Pears are one of those fruits that are difficult to transfer into a tea blend, but did just that. With the Pear and blend, they offered a pear flavoured tea that's light, sweet, flavourful and fun to drink.

What is Pear and Pistachio ?

Pear and pistachio are two common ingredients, not so commonly found together in a tea blend. Unlike apples, pears are often quite a delicate fruit, and the flavour may easily be lost among other ingredients.

This Pear and Pistachio tea blend from Biscuit & Brew Tea House (formerly Arthur Dove) contains green tea, , rosehips, apple pieces, pear pieces, orange peel, calendula petals, whole pistachios, flavourings and as a sweetener. A lot of ingredients that create a visually pretty blend with a sweet scent and light pear and orange notes.

Sounds like a fresh cake, doesn't it? If you love baking, you already know pears and pistachios fit together perfectly, but how do they taste in a tea blend?

How to brew this tea?

Pear and Pistachio is a green tea blend, so pay attention to the water temperature. Many green teas, including Chinese Chun Mei tea, may become bitter if over-brewed or if the water is too hot. Steep one teaspoon of tea leaves per cup of water at 75 degrees Celsius for 2-3 minutes. This tea contains lots of different ingredients, so try to scoop out all of them when making tea.

Pear and Pistachio brews into a refreshing, sweet dessert cuppa with light pear notes. If a light moist pear cake dusted with icing sugar had a liquid pair, it would be this tea. It doesn't need any sweetener, as stevia gives enough natural sweetness without adding calories and blends really well with other ingredients. None of them are taking over the blend, but create a perfectly balanced flavour instead. Pear and Pistachio tea is light, sweet and reminiscent of a light pear cake. Chun Mei tea has a stronger, slightly smoky flavour, and may become bitter if over-brewed, but in this blend, it offers depth, with no bitterness at all.
