Made for me at a DavidsTea store. Four-minute steep. Bare.

Another flavoured tea where all I can taste is the flavour. I didn’t get any of the “rotten garbage” scent that others have noted, but I did wonder if burdock was a good choice. I also wonder if some figs haven’t fermented.

Tea liquor was bronzey. Tasting notes: figgy and sweet and a tiny bit spicy. No hint of black tea whatsoever, which is, for me, an issue. Flavoured tea is great, but I do want to taste tea. I don’t expect to purchase this one again.

I prefer straight teas but will try almost anything … so long as it’s not tainted with hibiscus. I loathe hibiscus.

Oolongs and blacks are my favourites.
