Wasn't sure at first, but grew to love it
"Tupelo Honey Fig" is an interesting tea with a distinctive flavor - which comes as no surprise when you peruse its ingredients: lemon myrtle, peppermint, fennel, basil, licorice root, sweet blackberry leaves, honey, fig and white tea. It wasn't love at first sip and there was an interval between my first cup and my second, but I now drink it regularly. Love its unique flavors, especially in the morning hours.

I wanted to Like it
The name of this tea sounded devine and i was really excited to try it. My tastebuds did not pick up on any fig or honey. The licorice root and fennel are the dominate flavors in this cup. This tea smells as bad as it tastes. Bummed.

The perfect complex blend of the sublime
Tried as a sample and fell in love with this blend. This is not just a cup of tea this is an experience, much like tasting wine. Fig and honey notes taste as good as they smell. A definite reorder.

Smooth and relaxing
I loved this! There was no bitterness and it wasn't too sweet. I definitely will order this one again.

Awkward Blend of Flavors
The variety of flavors in this tea just don't come together well. I could taste very little honey or fig; the lemon myrtle, fennel and licorice were the most potent flavors to my tongue. There are so many contrasting ingredients in this blend that the final taste is rather muddled.

The caffeine level in a cup of tea can vary by tea type, steeping practices and even the particular tea harvest. We use the following designations as guidelines for the caffeine levels of our teas:
Robust, high caffeine teas; 50-100mg
Lower caffeine teas with shorter steeping times; 30-50mg
Tea/herbal blends with less than 30mg
Decaf tea retains a tiny amount of caffeine
Herbal teas are 100% caffeine free
These steeping guidelines produce the best results for our palates. Use them as a guideline, but you may certainly experiment and find the best results for yours.
