Do you like Fig Newtons?
The answer to that question will determine whether you will like this tea. It’s like a Buzzfeed quiz, but with just one question.
Because this tea is Fig Newtons in liquid form. 100%. The tea even has notes that I *swear* taste like the graham cracker.
Growing up, my dad loved Fig Newtons to the point where it was a family joke. They were pretty good, I guess, but I couldn’t understand how they’d be a thing a person would SNEAK when no one was looking. Or a treat that somehow trumped cookies.
In addition to thinking they were A DELISH DISH, my dad was also convinced they were hella-healthy. Which my mom would constantly tell him they were NOT. They were sugar and carbs. If he wanted to be healthy, he could eat an actual fruit. He was like “FIGS. COME. FROM. TREES! … NATURE!”
This tea hits the spot — without the health debate regarding processed food and empty calories.
Now that I’m an adult, I was kind of excited to hop aboard the Budin Family Nostalgia Express. We’re listening to 90s music for Throwback Thursday in our office, which is what I grew up with, and I’m drinking my dad’s favorite snack.
It’s a pretty ideal situation.
Next time I see Dad, I’m going to drink some with him.
