drank Figue Fraîche by Dammann Freres
2361 tasting notes

This is a juicy fig tea for sure! Thank you Dexter3657 for sharing this tasty cup. I don’t know how often I would reach for it just because fig is not a flavor I think about. However, when I do have a fig, it is a delicious treat and this tea captures that flavor perfectly.

I’ve been seeing quite a few tea notes pop up on this one, but I’m not so sure I’m crazy about figs haha.

I love figs and sadly have been disappointed by the two figgy teas I have tried. I will have to give this one a go.

Heh. Likely due to myself and Dexter grabbing a schwack of it (minimum 100g order with Dammann Frères), and then liking it yet wanting to share, since our cupboards are so out of control. ;)

Courtney

Minimum 100g? Eek. And I thought 50g was bad haha!

Dexter

Yep I got lots in that split order – I’ve send quite a bit out in swaps and have yet to try it. At least others will know if they like it or not before they order 100g. That’s the beauty of sharing/swaps.

My cupboard has grown exponentially since joining this site and I have a lot to share. Feel free to snoop through my cupboard and message me if anything interests you – I am always happy to swap!

For me, flavored teas are definitely my sweet spot. I will most often reach for black teas and rooibos or honeybush blends but I do keep some flavored whites and greens around for when the mood strikes. I have a few herbals/tisanes but most of the time I find myself disappointed by them as they often smell deliciously sweet and then end up tasting tart/sour. I have a little bit of an aversion to pu’erh and oolong teas. I am also wary of florals, earl greys, and chai teas. I do not like overpowering citrus flavors nor do I usually like hibiscus, licorice or chamomile. I love dessert teas – caramel, vanilla, toffee, cookie, cream, and other sweet flavors make me smile. Fruits like strawberry, peach, mango, and pineapples will often catch my attention as well.

I have also realized that although I really enjoy adding frothed milk to some of my teas, if I do not like the tea with zero additives (just in plain water without milk or sugar), I probably won’t drink it. The one exception is flavored matchas which I will happily drink in cold milk if I do not like it mixed with hot water. My theory is if the tea can’t stand on its own then it is not for me and I will more than likely try to swap it out for something else.
