Here is today’s contributing post for Vegan MoFo. Today’s prompt is “Close To Home” This means we are to make a food from our own country, state, or hometown. Because SororiTea Sisters is featuring vegan teas for Vegan MoFo I thought I would feature Fig Formosa Oolong from TeaLeafs for a few different reasons.
TeaLeafs is a wonderful tea shop in Williamsville, NY, which is near Buffalo, NY, all of which are my old stomping grounds. I was born and raised in and around Western New York and will visit whenever possible. Years ago I stop in at TeaLeafs and have been HOOKED ever since! They have over 200 loose leaf teas in stock and LOTS of teaware and collectibles!
As for this specific tea – Fig Formosa Oolong from TeaLeafs – I can’t say enough GOOD things about it! It’s an intensely fig flavored oolong tea. When we bought it the first time we had it iced and since my husband was with me we HAD to put natural rock sugar in it since he likes it sweet. Since I don’t usually put sweeteners in my teas I will say that I have had it BOTH ways and it’s EXCELLENT straight-up and stand alone – as well as – with natural rock sugar in it if you choose! Fig Formosa Oolong from TeaLeafs is also tremendous BOTH hot AND Cold. They sure don’t skimp on the fig flavoring and it’s SUPER TASTY! Fig Formosa Oolong from TeaLeafs is really AWESOME!
