drank Fig Rose by Teavana
1856 tasting notes

I have a few large one-ounce “samples” of fruity herbals that are pretty old by now, but I have no drive to drink them. I look at them and just taste the tartness of the hibiscus already. I guess I will save them for this summer and drink them iced and sweetened.

So I don’t have a lot of other herbals, but I do have this one. This herbal is HEAVY. It is basically composed of exclusively dried fruits, so my 2oz is really not that much tea. It also makes for difficult scooping, but I think I managed a decent blend.

Yum yum. I didn’t realize there was caramel flavoring in this at first, but I can really taste it. Fig and caramel is a glorious combination. This isn’t very rosy, no, but I’ve been having a time tasting rose in any herbal blend lately. I do think that there is a thick floral tone to this that comes from the rose. It is sweet and fruity without being tart. I think the almond also adds to the rich sweetness with the caramel. Yeah this is definitely a keeper for evenings, even if it is probably expensive for an herbal due to its weight.

Bio

I am tea obsessed, with the stash to match. I tend to really enjoy green oolongs, Chinese blacks, and flavored teas with high quality bases, especially florals, bergamot-based teas, and chocolate teas.

In my free time I am a birder, baker, and music/movie/tv addict.

Here are my rating categories, FYI:
100-90: I’m in LOVE with these teas.
89-85: I really really like these teas and will keep most of them in the permanent collection, but they’re not quite as spectacular as the top category
84-80: Tasty teas that I enjoy, but definitely won’t rebuy when I run out.
79-70: Teas that I would probably drink again, but wouldn’t seek out. They don’t quite do it for me in one aspect or another; often just not quite my style
69-50: Teas that I don’t really enjoy all that much and wouldn’t drink another cup of.
49 and below: Mega yuck. This tea is just disgusting to me.
