Asha Tea Asian Pear Oolong Tea: The fruit teas at Asha Tea in Berkeley are consistently good, with housemade textured purees made with seasonal fruit. The puree adds enough bite that I find your typical add-ons, like boba or grass jelly, are unnecessary. For this particular Asian pear tea, the strongly-flavored oolong had a rich and robust herbal flavor much stronger and more interesting than your typical green or black iced teas. The natural fruit carried enough sweetness on its own to cut through the tea, producing an... (read more) 4.5/5.0

Revival Ice Cream Pear sorbet: Ultra-creative yet accessible homemade ice cream from a James-Beard nominated pastry chef. Based in Monterey, Revival has about a dozen seasonal flavors, the most popular of which is one called the Beesknees, an ice cream studded with bits of honeycomb, broken into small enough pieces to add texture (both crunchy and soft). It's sweet but also has a slightly burnt flavor that's just a touch bitter to balance it out. I had their pear sorbet, which combines pear with celery juice. This is not ... (read more) 4.5/5.0

Chokai Kogen La France Pear Yogurt: A local grocery store offers this unique yogurt made in Yamagata Prefecture, Japan. The 400g mini tubs of yogurt (offering around 3 servings) consists of two layers: a base layer of yogurt that is smooth and acidic, and a layer of fruit compote that sits on top. The first flavor I bought was the La France flavor, which is a type of pear from Yamagata I hadn't heard about before. Looking up more information on the pear, it looks a bit like a D'Anjou pear, but here it's been cooked down to ... (read more) 4.5/5.0

Stonyfield Oh My Yog! gingered pear yogurt: A triple layer of whole milk cream, yogurt with honey, and a fruit base with cubes of pear. More of a parfait than a yogurt. Has a good amount of sugar (28g) but doesn't taste as sweet. Pear flavor is very good and slightly tart. Packaging is interesting: clear plastic container with a printer label on the interior. You can read it when you finish the yogurt. The story inside is a bit random but I'll forgive that. 4.0/5.0

GariGarikun pear flavored popsicles: Asian pear flavored Popsicles that are incredibly refreshing on a hot, humid day. Quite icy for a popsicle and on the sweet side, but has a concentrated Asian pear flavor that you can certainly distinguish from other pears. A little expensive for what it is, but it's from Japan. A welcome treat. 4.0/5.0

Pinkberry pear froyo: Surprised at how good this seasonal flavor is. Sweet, but not too sweet, with a very clean and crisp pear flavor. Small with toppings is a light and welcome mini meal after 7 hours of flying. 4.0/5.0
