Honey Tea Poached Pears

Poached Pears with ice cream on plate
This fancy pear dessert is easy to make. You can use any type of tea you'd like for the infusion, but something bright and punchy is suggested. I used a blend of hibiscus, rosehips, lemongrass, peppermint, orange peel, lemon verbena, and wild cherry bark (all in one bag). This is delicious on its own, but I love a scoop of vanilla ice cream alongside!




  1. Peel the pears, slice in half, then scoop out the cores with a spoon. Leave the stems on for presentation.
  2. removing seeds on pear halves
  3. Place the pears in a pot. Add enough water to cover the pears half way. Add the sugar and tea bag, then bring to a boil.
  4. adding sugar to Pears
  5. When it hits the boiling point, reduce the heat to low and add the honey. Cover and cook for about 25 minutes.
  6. adding honey to pear halves in pan
  7. Be sure to occasionally spoon the syrup from below over the pears. Remove lid and cook until pears are a reddish colour. Remove from heat and allow to cool a bit. Serve with ice cream or whipped cream.
  8. adding syrup to Pears
