Fig. Figgy pudding. Fig. I do love figs. They're underutilized here in The States I think. This Organic Cinnamon Fig Black Tea from Art of Tea is worth a look-see if you happen to have a taste for the figgy goodness.

This pretty coconut rooibos chai blend from Mighty Leaf Tea is a splendid example of a tea which comes close, but misses the ball. Aromatic and spicy Coco Chai Rooibos still comes out just a bit too weak.
