11 Tasting Notes
The smell of this tea is sickeningly sweet, but don’t let that put you off, It tastes much better than it smells. It tastes like vanilla birthday cake. I don’t know if I would keep it on hand, it is not a favorite, but I would enjoy it once every week or two, much the same as I would only enjoy real birthday cake every once in a while.
This smells very much like David’s Spiced Fig. This tea has a deeper flavour than the spiced fig though, which is good because although I liked spiced fig, I found it too weak. It is also in smaller pieces and not as heavy, so the bag will last longer. The aroma reminds me of Christmastime when I was young and Grandma used to make fruitcake.
I love the taste of this tea, the cinnamon and figs reminds me of a cross between apple cider and spice cake, but as other reviewers have noted, it is much too expensive to buy more of since it is so heavy and the pieces of fruit are so large. If you like this tea, I would recommend trying David’s Sugar and Spice, which is similar, but not as heavy, so more economical.
