drank Fig Rose by Teavana
386 tasting notes

This is one of my favorite herbal teas. The scent (both dry and brewed) is the kind that just knocks your socks off! I was so upset when Teavana had discontinued this (at least according to the clerk at Teavana). Imagine my surprise when I saw it on the Teavana site. Yippie! This is the tea I turn to in the afternoons and evenings since I don’t want caffeine. It is strongly fig. I love Fig Newtons and that is what I tasted. If you don’t like Fig Newtons, this is not the tea for you.

I do like fig newtons, and my mind is trying really hard to imagine how this translates into a tea, but it does sound rather luscious!

I can’t translate figs to tea either Sami but I’m guessing it’s because the only way I think I’ve had them is in fig newtons. It’s not a blend I would pick up by the name alone, but carol, you make it sound like a treat.

It really is for me! I do not really remember ever having a real fig, just the Fig Newtons. I even eat the “fruit” after steeping. I even use a spoon! Now I’m getting hungry again. I hate dieting!

I need to lose some weight too… Such a harsh winter all I wanted to do was hybernate! I have yet to eat pieces out of my tea, but I’m sure I will do it eventually.

Bio

Retired first grade teacher. I tend to like dessert type/herbal teas as a substitute for sweet treats; flavored black teas and mates to get that energy that I am often lacking ;-p
My husband of 42 years thinks I’m nuts regarding the whole tea thing… but he bought me a Breville for Christmas, so what can I say. :-D
My other interests are reading (books go well with tea :D) and beading. I volunteer at my “old” school teaching reading and I volunteer for the blind. I am trying hard to lose weight and am really trying to increase my exercise. I am now walking about 4 miles a day and I am trying to do some core work for about 30 min. 3x a week.

I have been watching Doctor Who for 32 years. In case you can’t tell my avatar is two daleks drinking tea! I am always open to swapping Doctor Who books for tea. I have about 120 Doctor Who books that I am eager to send some to a fan. :D Let me know if you would like any books! I love that so many people have begun watching DW!

Also I love swaps, pm me if you’d like to do a swap.

Since I find others’ rating legends helpful, I added my own.

95-100 A once in a lifetime experience; the best there is; will keep this stocked until the cows come home

90-94 First rate; top notch; really terrific; will definitely buy more

80-89 Excellent; likely to become a favorite, will likely buy more

70-79 Very good; would enjoy again, might buy again if in the mood for this particular one or a better, similar version not available or it’s on a really good sale :-)

50-69 Good; wouldn’t pass up if offered, but probably wouldn’t buy again unless craving this particular flavor

Below 50 Meh! Wouldn’t bother drinking it again.
