Sipdown, 196. I’ve wanted to try this one for a while, and now I have finally gotten a chance thanks to Ellen. I love fig everything, so a fig blend tea was for sure interesting to me.
It smells nice and fruity, although somewhat like a generic fruit flavored sencha. The flavor shocked me though! WHAT is that horrible savory flavor?? It tastes like if you made a miso soup with waaaay too much miso. It fades pretty quickly and I am left with the flavor of berries and figs (it reminds me a lot of Thé du Hammam by Le Palais des Thés), but woah. The initial part of the sip so SO salty tasting. WEIRD. This does not seem to be normal so I am assuming some other wonkiness here that is causing it.
