It’s not quite common to make pear jam or jelly, but anyone who likes sweet and delicate flavors has to give it a try! Red tea ( Tuo Cha would be perfect ) gives a slightly wooden fragrance that balances with the sweetness of fresh pears. This pear jam would be perfect on a good slice of bread for breakfast or accompanied with scones or pancakes when you have your tea in the afternoon.
