Sipdown! Thanks again to Sil for this tea :)

So, I’m not exactly sure how it happened, but I managed to brew up three fig teas tonight. Actually, now that I’m thinking about it, I wonder if it’s because I read a tasting note earlier on Ovation’s Brown Sugar Fig blend, and so fig was stuck in my mind. (Alternately, it could be because I knew this tea was an instant sipdown, and I brought two other fig ones home from work today just by chance).

Anyways. I brewed this conservatively as a black; I saw there was rooibos but only just found out about the oolong, but luckily both work with black steeping parameters!

The aroma of the brewed tea is a bit figgy and sweet, and that’s really it. Flavourwise, I’m catching some spice (cloves, I think), atop a sweet-ish, figgy base. This is more pleasant than I was expecting, actually. It doesn’t really have any “crumble” flavours to me, just that spiced, fruity, figgy flavour, which I do wish was a bit stronger. The tea base is thankfully not astringent here; I wish I could pick up the oolong a bit more, but at least the rooibos isn’t poking through where it doesn’t belong!

This is definitely a tea that would appeal to those who love figs, as it’s a prominent flavour and not hidden by other ingredients, but it’s less interesting than I would have hoped.

Thanks again Sil!

ETA: Re-steep was not too bad, actually! I definitely prefer this tea over the other two fig ones I had. The re-steep was definitely spiced, and a bit figgy.

Oooh fig. I’ve been searching for a good fig tea. This one sounds lovely.

I’d recommend it as a fig tea! Not as a fig apple crumble tea, though.

Sil

I have a bunch I can send some your way grace.

The only fig tea I’ve ever tried is Apres Ski and it’s good once you can get past the smell of garbage.

Thanks! I would love to try some if you can. Would you like to swap?

1.5 tablespoon for 375 ml of water.

The spice is the overwhelming note in both the flavour and aroma.

Hint of smooth authentic apple flavour in the background. Fig flavour present in the background especially near the end of the sip which is accentuated into the aftertaste. Fruity tartness nicely compliments the flavour profile. Slightest hint of astringency, bordering bitter, from the tea base.

As I’m drinking this tea, I’m finding the spices to be quite overpowering.

Thanks to Sil for sharing this with me.

I don’t think I’ll like this one for some reason. I can’t remember that reason right now…. (I only took 1 cup of it for that reason though).

Sil

this was one of the “free” teas that i got. it’s very figgy… not enough apple-y was thinking about mixing it with anyother tea maybe.

I’m going to leave off rating this one for now because I brewed it at work. Additionally, this tea isn’t visible on Tea Blendz’s website, so I’m not sure if you can purchase this outside of the store that closed down. I am so far enjoying this, though I can honestly say I’ve never had a rooibos, black, oolong blend before.

This steeping is more fig than apple, though it’s tasty enough. There’s a bit of spice going on as well, but it’s not overpowering. Any interesting tea to say the least :)

Oh! Clove! Hello!
And then there was FIG – yay!
The black tea base is nice – about medium strength – but I didn’t really know there was Oolong in here, too, until I read the description. I like that it’s a black/oolong blend but there isn’t much of an oolong flavor that is noticeable. The Apple notes are nice, too! This pairs well with the Almond Butter & Cranberry Power Chews I am currently eating! YUM!

Well, this is certainly figgy. And I’m finding the spices a bit overpowering, but they are spices that I am particularly sensitive to. Clove especially. There’s a reason I don’t particularly like traditional chai. Can’t really taste the apple in this. Nor the rooibos or oolong, though that may be a blessing since I either don’t have much experience with (oolong) or actively don’t like the taste of (rooibos). It did make a mess in my steeper though, another reason to not like rooibos much. Going to be miserable to clean when I finish drinking this pot.
