    Asian pears are just about the only pears I can find this time of year, so I knew I had to try this recipe. The wine and tea syrup is delightfullly spiced. I made this early this morning and served chilled - very good that way and refreshing.

    Just delightful! Wine and tea - two of my favorite drinks. They blend beautifully with spices to make these pears absolutely delectable. This is a very easy, very elegant and delicious recipe. Thanks for posting!
