Thank you SO MUCH Boychik for sending me a sample of this one! I REALLY wanted to try it! Fig and lemon on Harney’s black tea base just sounded delightful. However, I’m not sure if this is the base they would usually use. Or maybe my taste is changing… it seems to have a bit of that cardboard flavor that I notice in other black teas. I hope I don’t notice them in the other blends now. There is a sweetness and fruitiness to the tea but I’m not sure I’d actually call it fig. The lemon is missing for me too. The magic I expected just isn’t here, as I love Harney’s Paris and Tower of London which I’d rather reach for. Of course I’m happy to have tried this one!
Steep #1 // 1 1/2 tsp // few min after boiling // 3 min
Steep #2 // just boiled // 5 min

Its not bad, just not my style anymore. It was last and I’m not going to restock. You have to check if you still like Paris and Tower of London. I don’t anymore.

Well, the Ovation tea I’m drinking right now tastes like Paris because they were both stored in thin bags in a metallic pouch. It’s tasty so I guess I still like Paris. lol :D

Most of the teas listed in my cupboard are actually sample sizes. I don’t really have 2,000 ounces of tea around here! Many of my teas have only one teaspoon left… maybe two. But I like keeping them in my cupboard list for reference to what I could be sipping. Usually, I write tasting notes once for each tea. I’m still drinking them, just not writing tasting notes each time!

My dislikes: hibiscus, ginger (unless in chai), turmeric, bee pollen, charcoal type flavors

My ratings:
95-100 – Super awesome deliciousness favorites – cupboard essential
80-95 – Also pretty delicious
65-80 – Pretty good
50-65 – Okay
1-50 – Probably won’t want to sip it again

I’m planning on being a Steepsterer as long as there IS a Steepster, so if you’re not hearing from me, that means something happened to my health… if you know what I mean. :D

Happy sipping!
