drank Spiced Fig by DAVIDsTEA

So I doubled the amount of tea I used and upped the steeping time and while it is an improvement, I’m still rather disappointed with this tea. It’s quite sweet which may be due to all the sugar on the dried fruits which I could see being a problem for people with dietary restrictions – it tastes as though I added a teaspoon or more of honey or sugar to my cup(!) The flavour is still rather weak though I am getting some general fruity notes mixed with a bit of spice, but nothing that I would call distinctly fig-like in flavour. Meh, it’s quite disappointing overall.

Preparation

Bio

I’m a university student in her twenties who’s currently working her way toward a Bachelor of Natural Resource Science degree. I love both science and science-fiction and I’m a history nut on top of that. Maybe I should just call myself a nerd and leave it there. ;)

I’ve been drinking tea since I was young but it’s only in the past couple years that I’ve become interested in the good-quality stuff.

I’m also a self-proclaimed Grammar-Nazi, and improper capitalization and spelling invariably makes me twitch (yes, I mean you!)
