From American Tea Room

A flavorful blend of Chinese black tea, dates, figs and sesame make this tea a sweet and nutty delight to taste. The deep aroma of this wonderful brew transports you to a fragrant evening on the Bosphorus.

I won’t lie, I was a bit sketched out about this one. It was quite different from anything I’ve tried, but I love figs and dates, so I kind of knew I would probably like it. My cup gives off a strong aroma of dates, figs and malt. If you smell it without focusing on different scents, it smells a lot like maraschino cherries. The flavour is wonderful, mostly figs, with a wonderful nuttiness and dark cherry notes. It also has a very interesting milky quality both in terms of texture and taste. Yum.

Thank you mj1851 for sending this my way :D

While not quite as delicious as Brioche (can any dessert tea beat that one???), it is very tasty. Very nutty with a hint of preserved fruit flavor as well as very mild spiciness. The black base is bold enough, but it lets the flavoring shine.

It smells heavenly, too! Good yum to start the afternoon with.

This tea smells really interesting and has huge chunks of (presumably) figs and nuts in the dry leaf. The taste is mostly roasted sesame wrapped around figginess. It’s not quite figs, but it has a certain figginess to it. Yes, I know figginess is not a word, but it’s the only way I could think of to describe it. Overall, it’s a pretty pleasant cup, but it won’t be a tea that I’ll order again.

okay 1.5 teaspoons in a new ‘normal’ teacup. 5-6 minute steep….. not melon, full on fig. i’ve been snacking on the fig since the steep….. OMG.


I ADORE THIS…… must buy more. dammit, think i missed your sale too…… sigh. number’s going UP. wow!


Yum. Want!


Oh yum…The name of the tea sounds exotic and delish ;-)


they really did knock the ball out of the park with this one.


Oooh, how intriguing!


i actually have a hard time drinking it- all i want to do is walk around sniffing it. get to the stage where i add water takes me an age, lol.


lol @ Just James ;-)


=0D it’s true!


Ha ha! Funny! It’s kind of like me and with Butiki’s Golden Stars sample I had…they were so pretty to look at. It took me ages to actually brew them.


golden stars? …..oh! now i need to go and look. and seeing as i have’t even heard of that one i bet it doesn’t exist anymore. lol.


This sounds utterly fantastic.


i find american tea room usually has a different approach to blends- i don’t always like them, but i do appreciate the variation. this one is is mind blowing.

Thanks JJ – we freshly source most of the ingredients for this from our exclusive grower in Morocco – they make some amazing sesame and the dates and figs are the best anywhere.


again, thank you for all your extra work for helping to make this order happen. So much appreciated…. i believe i will be placing an order for this brilliant tea shortly (no intention of waiting as long as i did with tangier, lol)

Thank you NayLynn for the chance to try this tea. It is a really unique tea. I actually quite enjoy it for its one-of-a-kind flavor. Dates contribute a sweetness while the figs contribute a nice fruitiness. There is also a nuttiness that makes for a full flavor while sesame rounds everything out nicely. It is a great treat every now and again but I don’t think I would reach for it often enough to justify stocking it. I wouldn’t turn down a cup though :)

This smells like roasted almonds and it’s making me crave Bearclaw pastries! I really like the rich fig and toasted nut flavor. I added sugar (of course) it’s what I call “salt for tea” in that it always seems to enhance the flavors. It’s just the sweet desert tea that I was craving!

Thank you Moraiwe for sharing this with me!
