The fig smell is strong, with a hint of vanilla, but I don’t really smell lemon at all. Buying a fig flavored tea was a streach for me since I’m not a big fan of actual fans (the texture throws me off). I added a bit of sugar to mine to bring out the figgy sweetness and it is wonderful. I find that with a little bit of sugar I can taste the vanilla more strongly. As for the base of the tea it is wonderfully strong without being bitter, which I find to be a similarity across the flavored h&s teas.
Flavors: Fig, Honey, Vanilla
