Tonight was writers’ group night at my house and that means tea. One member was turning 22 and we had cake that was VERY sweet. This tea went amazingly well with it. I think I made 3 steeps of 22 ounces each, and only four of us were drinking tea.

This is a fluffy tea with lots of flowers, so they recommend using extra leaf. It has a great resteep so that stretches it a bit, and that doesn’t always happen with flavored teas. I believe this is sourced from TeaGeschwendner. It is always well received so I need to make sure I keep it on hand.

and onto my wishlist it goes. :)

I’m going to have to figure out where to find fresh figs locally. (Had hubby’s birthday dinner at a Carrabba’s in NW Arkansas and fell in love with their tenderloin in port wine fig sauce.)

My grandpa has fig trees on his farm. There are a couple of chefs out of New Orleans that drive out to get figs from him and they often bring him some delicious dish as an added thank you. I always thought that was cool of them.

I really wish I could find fresh figs here at a reasonable price,but I don’t see that ever happening.

I think figs are so delicate for shipping and such that it drives the price up. I wish I had planted an offshoot of my MIL’s fig bush years ago. Then I would have plenty now!

Thank you ashmanra for sending some of this tea my way.

This tea is uncannily similar to the Fig Formosa from Teas Etc, from the name, to the appearance and aroma, right down to the color of the liquid. It’s been a while since I had the Fig Formosa from Teas Etc, so I can’t tell you without a doubt that they are the same tea … but, I suspect that they are.

Anyway, if this is the same tea, I’m happy to be drinking it again… and if it isn’t, well, that’s OK too. I’ll just talk about what I’m experiencing now and not try to hone in on my memories of the previous tasting.

Delicious fig flavor. I love fig, and this so reminds me of the flavor of the figs that I used to pick from the fig orchard belonging to the farm where I lived for a short while. One of my favorite things to do is walk through the orchard and pick the figs and eat them while they were still warm from the sun. Sweet and juicy and yummy!

This tea has a strong, delicious fig flavor. Very true to the fruit.
