Pizza. Spaghetti. Olive oil. Espresso. These are the foods we usually associate with Italy and Italian cuisine. But did you know that Italy consumes more pears than any other European nation? Did you know that after China, Italy is the world's second largest grower of pears? It's true! Italians have been enjoying pears since the early days of ancient Rome. Pears hold a special place in their hearts not just because of their delicious flavor, but because they are wonderful to cook with and to pair with other foods. Nowhere is this more true than in the breathtakingly beautiful villages of Tuscany. Tuscan chefs have created many recipes over the years, and routinely whip up such delicacies as pears poached in white wine, sliced pears with fresh Parmesan cheese or spicy pear pastries.
The slightly tart, highly adaptable flavor of Italian pears is perfectly complimented by their high nutrient content. Pears are high in fiber, vitamin c, potassium and folic acid. So, in the spirit of adaptability, we've decided to try something new and match the sweet profile of pear with the mellow character of a South African Rooibos. We believe that what we have created evokes the feeling of a relaxing afternoon under the Tuscan sun - perhaps sitting under a pear tree. The cup is fresh, with herbaceous notes and lively hints of pear - delizioso!
