Spiced fig is like a fruit cake, but in a good way!
I do not like fruitcakes. But they are composed of many delicious thinks, fruit, nuts, chirstmasy spices, and cake! They should be delicious…
Spiced fig tastes like all those things (except the cake), but in a good way. It’s fruity and heavily christmas spiced.
It smells heavily of cloves, like one of those oranges with the cloves pressed into it…
It’s kind of hard to put into words why I love this tea, I really like teas that balance spicy and fruity. Like Mango diablo… I can see this tea falling in to the too heavily spiced realm for many, or too cloying for others, but it really does seem like christmas in a cup.
The loose tea actually tastes better than the tea steeped, in my opinion. The taste of the tea isn’t too strong, but makes a nice warm drink on a cold day. It’s not too distinguishable from Forever Nuts, so sometimes I mix them together and then it tastes AWESOME.
I feel as though I’m the only person on earth that likes this tea. Of my David’s Tea co-workers, I only know one other girl that doesn’t mind it. I don’t know exactly what it is that I like, but it’s most likely the liquorice root. I’m not normally one to like super sweet teas, but I am a fan of this one. Oh well, I’m a strange one :)
It has been a long day full of finals and counting down the last 3 months until I graduate early. It’s cold, i’m tired and stressed. All I want is chocolate. David’s Tea sent me this as a sample with my order of other holiday themed teas so I brewed it up immediately when I got home. It smells just like hazelnut and chocolate but it tastes like watered down fancy hot cocoa. It’s not bad but it’s not great either. Honestly I would have given it a higher rating if I could taste more of the chocolate or nuts in the tea but I just can’t do it. Maybe I just need to make out like the cookie monster for my stress chocolate binge.
I got this sample with my recent order. I was afraid to try another fig tea after the one that tasted like a stinky shoe, but I did it anyway. Good news is, it doesn’t like a stinky shoe, but I don’t like it. Not because of lack of flavor as some of you note, but because I don’t like the flavor. I guess i just don’t like fig tea. I feel like it could use more spice or more cranberry (for some tartness). It’s a muddy unpleasant flat flavor to me.
Another tea brought by a well meaning family member.
I dont care for chai, but I do love all the spices that go into chai, so I keep trying them.
My mom made an absolutely delicious pumpkin ring, I though that this would go well with it. Wrong.
It was just weird. I had to spill out my cup.
It didnt taste like pumpkin, it kind of smelled like carrots. It had a sweet sort of fertilizer smell and the fruity flavor had an over ripe quality – not a good thing.
I’ve said it before and I will probably say it again – I will leave the chai spices to baking and curries.
How does one drink this tea? I had a sample cup at David’s Tea and it tasted very bitter. I brewed a cup at home and it tasted like drink. Now I have a cup that I brewed for 6 minutes and added a little bit of stevia and it still tastes rough going down. I’m trying to like this….
I like cocoa, oolong, and licorice, so except for the black tea, the ingredients in this are right up my alley. A good start that went downhill when I opened the package. The dry mix has a strong, almost alcohol-like smell to it.
Brewed, it has a lighter smell. The alcohol scent is pretty much gone, thank goodness. Taste-wise, I get a bit of nuttiness, but overall the main impression is sweetness, probably from the licorice and flavourings. I don’t add anything to my tea, and I’m glad here, as I think adding sugar would make it undrinkable (for me).
Overall, it’s drinkable, but not something I think I’ll ever wake up in the morning craving. It’s too bad. If it were a bit nuttier and not as sweet, I think I would have loved it.
I was SO excited about this tea. It would be pretty decent, except it has this kind of terrible aftertaste that I am assuming is the licorice.. It lingers on your tongue and mouth for AGES. I’ve had a pumpkin/cinnamon bagel with cream cheese and a full glass of water since drinking this, AND I CAN STILL TASTE THE LICORICE!!! WHY IS THIS A NECESSARY INGREDIENT? This tea would be really great without it. Maybe sugar/milk will disguise it? I’ll have to try.
Quite intriguing in that it’s reminiscent of a well executed fig dessert. I would disagree with Tealizzy in terms of depth of flavour. This tea has it in spades BUT you have to use at least 2 teaspoons making it very pricey. I bought 10 grams and it was good for one large cup. I am an extremely loyal customer but my pet peeve with David’s Tea is that they won’t let you sample a tea of your choice. So I do recommend it, just be aware of cost.
When I read about this tea, it was right up my alley, but like many of the other ratings, I was disappointed. It has a great smell, but the after taste is bizarre. I couldn’t quiet put my finger on it, but now after reading other reviews I see it is the licorice that gives is a sweet after taste. Not just sweet, really sweet. I initially thought that maybe it was stevia because it tastes artificial almost. Not very good :(
I was searching for the flavour I get from this tea, and my fiance totally hit the nail on the head- marzipan. This tea is pretty darn marzipan-y. I don’t see that as a bad thing, but I know a lot of people don’t really dig that. I enjoyed it after dinner with a slice of fig cake, but I’m not sure I’ll be reaching for it over and over.
