I had this last night, 4 teaspoons in 16 ounces of water, and it was too strong for me. The blend I got into my Brewt, which I have determined is way better than the steeper basket that came with my Nordic Mug, probably contained way too many figs. ‘Too figgy’ was what my husband proclaimed. It really turned me off of this tea. Tea brewing is so moody! It kind of turned me off of the tea really. Blah to that.
