There is something vaguely exotic about this tea. I would imagine this is the kind of tea Indiana Jones is drinking when he’s in a marketplace in Egypt or maybe Turkey. I mean when he’s not shooting bad guys or chasing after treasure, of course.
The figs and the nuts combine to give this tea a naturally sweet taste that does not need any sort of sweetener. The pistachios give the tea a depth of flavor and a little more complexity than I would expect and I love it.
The base green tea is just that. There’s nothing particularly special about it, but there’s nothing bad about it either. The one nice thing I will say about it is that I have steeped this tea using water too hot, too cold and for too long and the green tea never gets burnt in a way that is offensive to the tea. It is very durable that way.
The other thing I like about this tea is it works almost all the time. I like to drink a cup of flavored tea on the way to work in the morning, and my tastes change with the season. I wouldn’t want a pumpkin spice tea in the middle of the summer, for example. I have found this tea to be perfect for any kind of weather.
I have not tried this tea iced, but maybe it’s not such a bad idea.
