drank Figgy Pudding by Capital Teas
1060 tasting notes

I noticed that Capital Teas recommends that the water be 195°F for this tea. Last time I made this the water was closer to boiling, so I lowered the water temp, and it made a difference. Now I taste fig. Yum, yum, yum. There is still the cherry note, but the fig has equal footing, and the two play very well together. I like.

There’s no way I’ll get through all four ounces of this the during the holiday season, but I’m ok with that since I think this will make an equally lovely spring/summer tea. I’m also curious to try it iced. Me thinks it’ll mighty tasty that way, too.

Preparation
195 °F / 90 °C 4 min, 0 sec 1 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

Going to try very hard to visit them next week when I am in the area for work.

Are you going to be in Philly or D.C? I love the Philly store. The sales people are very friendly.

I went to the DC store at Dupont Circle. Sales person was AWESOME!, but I don’t like having to buy 4 oz at one time.

Some day I will make some figgy pudding, and it will be fabulous.

@khamilton611 – 4 oz is a commitment! I wish they had smaller sizes, too.

@Lariel- Yum! Now I must go look at figgy pudding recipes. Why have I never done this before?!?

94-85 = Teas I truly like, often have in my pantry, and sometimes restock. These are my variety-is-the-spice-of-life teas.

84-75 = They’re good teas and I enjoy drinking them on occasion.

74-65 = These teas are ok, but not really my thing.

64-55 = meh.

54-45 = I will if I have no other option.

44 and below = Coffee, please.
