drank Fig Rose by Teavana
1850 tasting notes

Here’s something to cheer my day, I came home to a package of tea on my porch. I immediately poured this tea into the tin I had ordered from it and was loving the scent so much I knew I had to have it tonight. Plus it has been a lot cooler here lately so I am happy to have herbal tea in the evenings again.

I haven’t had this one in a long time, partly because its heavy and I was afraid of tearing through my two ounces that I originally bought too quickly. Yay 50% off sale, because now I have a pile of it. And mmmm I love this tea. I bumped the rating into the 90s because I love it so much. Is it particularly rosy? No, it’s mostly figgy and almondy and caramelly and a little bit tart. But it’s one of those things that even though the blend didn’t immediately live up to my expectations, I still love the flavors. I’m sure they’ll discontinue it and devastate me, but for now I will keep loving it.

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.
