We went to DC this weekend. My friend lives right next to the Capital Teas in Bethesda, and she took me there since she knew that I loved tea so much. It was a tiny shop, but they had a whole wall full of glass jars with the teas in them to smell. I loved that because I was able to see the tea and also smell it so I knew what I wanted to purchase. This one definitely stood out to me, it smells richly of dried fruit with just a little hint of spiciness. The tea itself has a sweet cherry and black tea aroma. The flavor is very sweet and fruity even without sugar and there is a strong cherry aftertaste that lingers. The cherry aftertaste kind of reminds me of cherry cough syrup, which I don’t love. Adding sweetener takes the flavor back to a fruity cherry instead of a mediciney cherry. I added a little milk and it became a nice and smooth, creamy cup. This was my first tea from Capital Teas and it’s a winner!

-Dry blend has medium black tea leaves with large dried cherries and pieces of dried fig.
-Dry leaves smell of rich dried fruit with a hint of spiciness. Tea liquor aroma is of sweet cherries and black tea.
-Tea liquor is a clear dark reddish brown color.
-Sweet fruity flavor and finish. Strong cherry aftertaste that lingers.
-Best with sweetener. Milk optional.
-Very good tea. Rich and smooth fruity flavor. Candy cherry taste.

I received some of this from fellow Steepster member, Nicole. It came from a store called “Tea Market”, but they repackage other companies tea. I’m sure it’s this one. It looks identical.

Anyways, this tea is just okay. It sort of taste flat to me. There are no distinguishing flavors in my personal opinion. I wouldn’t purchase it, but I’ll finish the sample that I received.

Thanks Nicole!

I am pretty sure it’s from Capital as well.

I taste a lot more cherry than fig. It’s like the tea is almost medicinal tasting, but just shy of that line.

It tastes a lot better to me cold (and I don’t mean iced tea…just hot tea that’s gotten cold). Which is good, because I HAD to buy 4 oz of it, and I rarely buy that much of ANYTHING! I was more than miffed by that.

I noticed that Capital Teas recommends that the water be 195°F for this tea. Last time I made this the water was closer to boiling, so I lowered the water temp, and it made a difference. Now I taste fig. Yum, yum, yum. There is still the cherry note, but the fig has equal footing, and the two play very well together. I like.

There’s no way I’ll get through all four ounces of this the during the holiday season, but I’m ok with that since I think this will make an equally lovely spring/summer tea. I’m also curious to try it iced. Me thinks it’ll mighty tasty that way, too.

Going to try very hard to visit them next week when I am in the area for work.

Are you going to be in Philly or D.C? I love the Philly store. The sales people are very friendly.

I went to the DC store at Dupont Circle. Sales person was AWESOME!, but I don’t like having to buy 4 oz at one time.

Some day I will make some figgy pudding, and it will be fabulous.

Veronica

@khamilton611 – 4 oz is a commitment! I wish they had smaller sizes, too.

@Lariel- Yum! Now I must go look at figgy pudding recipes. Why have I never done this before?!?
