So I had put a hold on trying this one with all the negative reviews, but I finally sucked it up and gave it a steep yesterday. It does smell pretty strongly of dried figs in the bag, and another not quite as pleasant scent layer that I can’t quite put my finger on.

It steeped up pretty well considering I forgot about it for a while; wasn’t too dark or acidic. The fig flavor was super strong though, and a little too sweet even without any added sweetner. I didn’t get any of the ‘garbage-ness’ that others have mentioned, but I wasn’t a huge fan of the taste of the tea as soon as it started to cool down.

Not a huge fan of this one, Really glad I only got hte 26g bag with the Winter Collection box, I’ve only got about another cup and a half left in the bag so I’ll hopefully be able to run through it pretty quick. While I don’t hate it, I don’t think it will make a repeat appearance on my tea shelf.
