Right out of the bag, this smells really alcoholic, but it’s a sweet type. My first thought was, Manischewitz – super sweet, kosher wine. Not like I’d reject a glass of it, but I was really really hoping this wouldn’t taste like it!
I really like figs. I didn’t care much for them growing up, but as an adult, I’ve eaten dried figs as a tasty super sweet snack. Oh my goodness, the deliciousness.
Anyway, my mug is cooling right now, but I took a small taste right before I took out the ""leaves"". It’s quite good and it’s sweet on its own so I didn’t add sweetener, though as it cools it’s getting a little bitter so I think I might add some next time.
I used 2 perfect teaspoons in my 16oz steeping mug
