1 cinnamon stick
1 piece fresh ginger, peeled
4 whole pears, peeled, stems intact
3 tbsp honey or agave

Directions
1. Begin by peeling the pears, making sure to leave the stems intact. Slice the bottoms off so that they stand upright.

2. Combine the tea, vanilla, cinnamon, ginger and water in a large pot and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Add the pears to the pot, making sure they’re fully immersed.

3. Simmer for 15-20 minutes, then take the pot off the heat and leave the pears to cool for about 30 minutes. Remove pears from the poaching liquid and set aside. Boil the liquid with honey until it’s been reduced to a syrup. Strain.
