I found the figs and fig flavor everyone! They’re at the bottom of the bag with the cherries.

For real though. Look at these cherries (while disregarding my stubby nail and chipping polish please)!

That’s like. A whole cherry.

I’m pretty sure it’s my favorite cherry tea so far (and I never really thought I’d find out, being that cherry is so often medicinal). This one is smooth with a little bit of vanilla, and the figs really offer a depth to the cup. The base is inoffensive, and all in all it’s so warming and comforting and, well, good.

I keep thinking I have more left than I do, but the whole cherries bulk up what’s left (which is maybe 3 cups or so). Sad.

i love your nails and nailpolish!
i think ‘stubby nails’ are more practical for having fun.

also, i think i haven’t tried this tea yet just because i like seeing the name CHERRY FANTASY in my cupboard. but now that i know there are figs involved?! i’m gonna save it like a precious precious! so far i’ve really liked the fig teas i’ve tried.

(have you had American Tea Room’s Sultans Delight? if it sounds like something you’d like can i send you a scoop sometime?)
(i ALSO have a ‘fig rose’ tea sample from Eva that i’m saving)

I do work inside of computers, so it’s definitely a necessity. I also have a horrible nail biting problem that I’ve only mostly kicked. But thank you! :)

I actually have some Sultan’s Delight here! And some of their Toasted Fig as well. Fig is definitely one of my favorite flavors, which is why it was so, so sad that Art of Tea’s Cinnamon Fig was so blech.

Hobbies:

Reading, writing, cooking, video games, computers, drawing, crafting, papercraft. Oh and tea.

A brief history:

I grew up in a family where the only working coffee maker was in my dad’s office. So the name of the game for my mother and I quickly became (bagged) tea. In 2004/2005, I discovered Adagio Teas. I don’t remember how it happened, or why I decided to pursue a purchase but here we are. I haven’t looked back.

My tea tastes have changed over time and I’ve moved from liking solely flavored teas (mostly black and white) to enjoying Darjeelings primarily, though malty unflavored blacks, fresh tasting greens, and lightly oxidized oolongs come in pretty high on my list, too. Of course, I still enjoy a good cup of flavored tea. I prefer caffeinated teas, as I have a horrible caffeine addiction that I don’t plan on kicking any time soon.

Red rooibos and lapsang souchong (or other strongly smoky teas) are my arch nemeses and I will see them defeated and removed by force from my cupboard. Like all thing, there are exceptions, but I assume they’re guilty until proven innocent.

I really don’t like negatively rating things, because I feel like if you don’t have something nice to say, you probably shouldn’t say it. But in the interest of non-biased tea reviews I’m going to give it a shot. I view every tea as a potential adventure so I’ll try most things at least once.

I love trading and swaps are always welcome! Please note, though, what it in my cupboard includes amounts ranging from a couple cups to 4 ounces or more, so please PM me to find out if what you’re seeking is available in that trade amount.

According to my spreadsheet, I also have about 100 other 1-4 cup samples that are not in my cupboard.. Feel free to message if you’re interested in see the spreadsheet for possible swap options as well.

Tea Ratings:

100-95 Nectar of the teagods that has been bestowed upon my unworthy tongue. I will never let this tin run empty.

86-94 These are the teas I would like to keep regularly stocked, but sometimes life gets in the way. Lovely teas, but not quite god tier. I still get cravings for these.

74-85 Good teas, but not amazing. I enjoy these, but may or may not restock once they run out. I would still recommend these to others.

60-73 Not bad. I’ll gladly keep drinking my cup, and wouldn’t say no if someone offered me this tea. I probably won’t rebuy these as there is likely something else that is comparable and better.

47-59 Certainly drinkable and might even have some characteristics that I enjoy, but I won’t pick it up again

30-46 I’ll probably finish my cup, but this tea isn’t to my taste OR it’s just overwhemingly mediocre. Life’s too short for bad tea.

11-29 This cup is in the sink now and I will never willingly consume this again. If you see a tea rated this way, I probably followed it with mouthwash.

0-10 Please say a prayer for the cup I destroyed in the process of disposing of this tea in the quickest manner possible. I may need tea therapy before I drink a similar tea again.
