Okay, I hate to be the first one to review this tea – I don’t want to scare you away from it!
Maybe I’ll scare you.. towards it?

Okay let’s just do this. Dry smell: rotten fruit. Garbage. Oh my gaawwd my nostrils.
Okay so don’t stick your nose in the bag haha. It’s kind of nice and a deep fruity smell from farther away. :3

Steeped: Smells like.. figs I guess. Or garbage. whichever. haha.
Okay so I’m reminded of fig newtons. And.. christmas I guess. Figgy pudding?

Aftertaste is like I just finished chewing on a big dirty piece of corrugated cardboard. And then this delicious caramel buttery sensation comes. Right when you finish.

Well eff that. This tea is not for me. But I hope it’s for you :) Do you like figs? Maybe it just smells like figs. Fig Newtons are my first and last experience with figs – it’s all I know! I like them… anyways. Enjoy?

My favorite bit: “Aftertaste is like I just finished chewing on a big dirty piece of corrugated cardboard.” I’m still laughing…

DaisyChubb

haha I honestly couldn’t think of anything else! Also.. it probably helps that I’ve chewed my fair share of childhood cardboard. That sentence only kind of makes sense, but the point is – I’ve had cardboard in my mouth. So you can trust that statement. :D

I decided not to get this one when I got the new teas today. The smell was disgusting and I can’t imagine the taste being any better.

DaisyChubb

It tastes like it smells my dear, trust your nose with this tea! :)

Ha ha ha! I think this is the best thing I have read ALL day! I’m a little scared of this one, though I do like figs, sooo…hmmm, maybe I’m the guinea pig?

Dinosara

LOL! I love fig teas, but you just make this one sound so… appealing. :)

Hey you fig lovers, go for it! Seriously, I’m sure it’s just me having a first fig tea experience. I would really love to hear when you think of it!

Bio

You can call me Daisy.

I’m a 24 year old (not so budding) thespian – just moved to the Maritimes from the Saskatchewan Prairies. I’m way too polite, aka Proud to be a Canadian. I love it here by the water – it must remind me of tea or something ;)

My favourite tea companies are DavidsTea and Verdant Tea. They please my palette in different ways – and I love them both for it.

My rating system is as follows:
95-100: I will stock it as soon as I can, if I haven’t already! Permanent collection worthy.

86-95: I would stock this tea if I could, but my collection is just too full to warrant it. But it is that good.

76-85: This is a tasty tea and I will have many cups and share with friends, but won’t go out of my way to keep it stocked.

50-75: It was alright! It was… alright! Not horrible, but I might not re-steep.

25-50: Ew. But I will finish the cup.

1-25: Please no, I want to dump it.


The Steepster community is my safe place. Thank you to all my tea friends!
