35
drank Spiced Fig by DAVIDsTEA
37 tasting notes

So, I had this for the first time the other day and hated it. I won’t bother going into all the reasons why again, but today I decided I’d try mixing it with some Forever Nuts.

I like it much better this way. Forever Nuts is definitely adding more flavor to the cup, but I can actually taste the Spiced Fig more today then I could the other day when I brewed it by itself. Its still not my favorite, but I think I’ll finish off the last little bit I have of it this way.

Preparation
Boiling 6 min, 0 sec

I am glad you found a way to make it drinkable. I ended up just letting my roommate eat the blend because it was doing no good as a tea.

One of the employees kept pushing this on me one time I went. Glad I didn’t cave and buy it…I can’t stand herbals anyways.

Good choice on not getting it Kinsa, and me too VariaTEA. Letting your roommate eat it though, not a bad idea lol.

About Me
Hi! I’m a 24 year old University student that loves tea -obviously! I also love to read, I’m an English major so I guess that is a given. I may also be a bit of a shopaholic, but hey there are worse addictions right?

Tea
Growing up I hated tea, but when I turned 16 I went on a trip to Japan and fell in love with Green Tea -basically any type of green tea that I could get my hands on. For the following 7 years I stuck exclusively to straight green tea.

Then when I turned 23 a friend of mine got a job at David’s Tea and started pestering me to branch out and try some of their teas. And I am so glad I did! for the next year I tried (and bought) basically every tea David’s had to offer.

Then a couple weeks ago I stumbled across Steepster when I was search for recommendations on other tea brands to try. In the short time I’ve been on steepster I’ve been introduced to some amazing teas from brands all over the world, and some equally amazing people!

Tea Ratings

1 to 40 – I won’t even bother trying to drink this, I’ll just dump it out.

41 to 65 – I don’t like this. I’ll finish the cup because I don’t want to waste it, but I’ll probably be cringing while doing so. And I definitely won’t be repurchasing.

66 to 80 – I like this, I’ll recommend it to people, and at some point I’ll probably repurchase it.

81 to 100 – I am in love with this. Seriously, I’ll be repurchasing this before I’m even halfway through my current stash of it. In fact I love it so much I’ll probably force feed it to you until you love it as much as I do.
