You may want to leaf generously, since this tea is VERY delicate. The dry leaf and the brewed tea have a strong figgy scent, but the brewed tea is much more subtle. One teaspoon yielded a brew that was a little too light for me, 1 and 1/2 was still delicate, but tasty. The fig flavor gets more noticeable as it cools, even if it also becomes a little bit astringent. I’ll probably restock in the future, since I like fig-flavored teas more than I thought I would.

…and the piggy sprinkles are cute, even if they stuck, half-melted, all over my tea ball. Easy enough to clean though, so no big deal.

Even though my profile picture’s the worgen crest, rest assured my heart belongs to the Horde.

I’m a gamer girl who drinks a lot of tea. My tastes tend heavily towards black tea, though I won’t turn down a nice green or white either.

I stay away from most herbals because far too many of them have hibiscus. I find hibiscus disgusting. Nor am I a fan of rooibos; the taste has to be pretty heavily masked for me to drink it. Usually if I’m drinking a tisane it’s something purely floral like lavender, or rose buds, or chrysanthemum.

I’ll almost always put sugar in my tea, unless it’s something that really doesn’t work well with it (I will never ever add sugar to lapsang souchong again) or something that honestly doesn’t need it or would be ruined by it, like most unflavored greens or whites.
