drank Fig Rose by Teavana
200 tasting notes

This is another tea that I would not have purchased on my own, without a specific request for it. Fig fruit on its own, to me does not have a strong flavour. Bland is how I would refer to fig. That being said, I really LOVE Fig Newtons – maybe because of the added pastry/cookie type component (and sugar).

As good Teavana employee’s do, they wafted the aroma to me, and I thought ‘Whoosh!!! That is very aromatic!’ I also thought to self, I will forward most of this to the requestor of this blend.

I kept a little bit, because I wanted to try it despite the aroma to me was not appealing. The aroma of this tea has nothing to do with taste. I’m not drinking a fig newton cookie, but I am definitely drinking a (sweet) flavoured fig tea, with a bite acid from the apple pieces. Really, surprisingly good!! I wish I had kept more of this sample!!

The dry aroma is a more than a little off-putting to me. But the brewed aroma is not as strong, and the flavour delicious!!

Bio

My tea journey started in 2012, when a friend gifted me some loose leaf. I guess she thought I was drinking too much coffee. Blown away by the amazing flavours I immediately embraced the loose leaf tea. I still drink coffee, but my main choice of beverage is now tea.

My tea preferences are blacks, pu’erhs, oolongs and greens.
