First and Foremost – Thanks Azzrian

Figs are under rated in my opinion. I have been getting into them even more and think they are GRAND. This Fig Matcha does the fruit proud!

This flavored matcha is sweet like candy. Smooth and creamy and malty and just the right amount of ‘green’ vegetal to go along with it. This is really something!

As it cools a bit I can pick up on the product descriptions claim of spice. This is surprising yet very much welcomed. It’s almost like a Fig-Spice type flavor on the tongue.

It makes me wonder what a Fig Chai (Tea or Matcha) would taste like.

I’m totally LOVING this matcha!

Nik

Is the fig flavour that of fresh figs, or dried figs?

Terri HarpLady

That’s exactly what I was wondering, Nik! I personally love fresh figs, but only really perfectly ripe ones.

Azzrian

I would answer but my experience with figs prior to tea and matcha is non existent for the most part. I have had fig jam but not sure what was used in that.

Terri HarpLady

My gramma used to make an amazing fig preserve! She had a fig tree in her yard, along with apricots, which she used to make spiced apricots (& they were to die for too), & other fruit trees. Her fig preserves were in a super thick sugary syrup, & spread on toast dripping with butter…well, what can I say? Heaven? They were also good in a bowl of oatmeal! Or straight from the jar. When gramma & gramps came to visit they always brought boxes full of canning jars, filled mostly with sweet jellies, preserves, etc.

In my neck of the woods, figs are pretty trendy in the restaurants that like to emphasize local grown produce-I’m not big on eating them by themselves, mainly because they are sooo sweet, but have seen them incorporated into delicious recipes. This sounds like a matcha worth trying.

I would say partially dried…not fresh off the produce table but not completely dried to a leather…if that makes sense.

Nik

Thanks for the clarification! Terri, I love fresh figs, too. The other kind I really only like on occasion, and in Fig Newtons or some such.

Asaf Mazar

how is the tea flavored? with extract of real figs?
