Fig Matcha

Very sweet and delicious – rich and decedent – never new fig could be so wonderful!
I had to make a second matcha because I drank it so darned fast! My family was laughing at me when I began to make the second latte! They have seen me down matcha before but never quite as fast as this one!
Its sweet but not cloying whatsoever, tastes like something one picked fresh from the tree or ummm garden? Do figs grow on trees? I need to look that up! I have had fig only in a few forms before – jams, canned which were whole figs, and in puddings, but I am positive this is the best tasting fig ever for me!

I got the robust flavoring which is my usual unless its a matcha flavor I have had before and I know it needs a little less flavor to let the base shine through. I feel that the robust was perfect for this matcha however.

I think this may become one I keep as a permanent selection in my stash. I am not sure I would say it is better than macadamia nut or butterscotch but its up there with them maybe number 3 or 4 in my favorites. I have been drinking so many new ones as I collect them that I need to go back and try some of my first matcha again.

I have also been sending out a ton of samples but its getting to that point I can’t share as much anymore because my stash is beginning to thin lol.

I’m at the place of deciding my favorites and keeping only those in stock. This will be one of those.

So I was surprised as I really did not expect to love this one quite so much, actually I thought I would probably not favor it but alas I do. Go fig!

yes, figs grow on trees. :) I used to live for a short time on a farm that had a fig orchard when I was a small child. We would walk through the orchard and pick the figs, and eat them fresh off the tree. That is one of the very best ways to experience figs … this tea is another. :)

:) So yummy! I was really just astounded! I want another latte already lol

I’ve already had 2 bowls of Matcha and since it’s after 7 pm I don’t know if I can handle a third. LOL! I’ve got other teas to keep me busy though… I’ll probably just have to wait until tomorrow.

Meh who needs sleep. MUAAHHHHH

I want this one! And I need to ask my MIL if I can harvest her figs now that she doesn’t use them anymore.

Well, when I haven’t had sufficient sleep, I’m kind of like a zombie, except that I don’t go around with a desire to munch on people’s brains. I guess, what I should say is that I feel like what I think it would feel like to be zombie – but without their culinary preferences.

I know exactly how you feel as a matter of fact after a couple failed attempts to make any sense in replying to posts I am just going to go try to sleep. :)

Bio

Most of my reviews will be “snippits” of full reviews that can be found at http://sororiteasisters.com/
Posted every evening at 6 EST.
I usually try to post the exact date that the full reviews will post however sometimes post dates need changed so it may not always be correct. Generally the dates are correct however.

About Me:

Most of my reviews, although not all, will be quite favorable of the tea. This is not because all tea is excellent, but more so because I generally will not waste my time on an inferior tea. If I do not care for a tea I won’t continue to drink it let alone spend time reviewing it. If you see a review by me you basically know it is a quality tea. Granted it may not suit your specific taste buds, we all like different things, but as for a tea on the whole it is a good one, from a good company.

I am a spiritual advisor by profession.
I have two “young adult” children.
Four cats and three dogs.

Some of my hobbies include gardening, essential oil therapy, natural perfumery with essential oils, and cooking.

I look for complexity overall in any tea, dimensions to the flavors.

I believe tea should evoke a feeling, thought, emotion, or attitude.

I enjoy most all oolongs, blacks, whites, and greens.

I always love to try a good yellow tea.

I favor unadulterated teas but I do have my longings for a good flavored tea now and then so I don’t rule them out by any means!

I enjoy green rooibos don not like red rooibos.
