This one was interesting to me. First, I love brown sugar! I have tried figs before, and I know I like them. They have a certain starchy taste to it. This tea definitely has that taste. The flavor wasn’t very strong. The black tea was a little astringent, but it wasn’t terrible. I added brown sugar to this blend. I’m sure it would taste better with milk, but I’m not sure. I will try it next time. There is a definite fig taste to this tea. Good tea overall. This isn’t a very strong tea, but the flavors linger in my mouth.
