It is not often that I am at a loss for words, but I have had a really difficult time finding a way to describe the way this tea tastes. Forgive me as I muddle through it, ok? It’s not the tea’s fault – it’s my lack of experience with figs and dates and Middle Eastern flavor profiles that make this difficult, but I’m going to do my best.
The tea is very flavorful. I find myself thinking about the tea every time I take a sip, instead of drinking it absent-mindedly and forgetting about it. The flavors pull me back with every drink. It is savory overall, although the natural fruit sweetness pulls it back from being too savory. I almost get a glimpse of a salty note, but it runs away before I can fully tell that it’s there.
