Combine all ingredients in a medium pot and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and simmer until figs are very tender and fragrant, about 30 minutes. Serve immediately, or cool and store in the poaching liquid (solids discarded) until ready to use. (Simmer poaching liquid until thickened to drizzle over figs or desserts, or to stir into hot tea.)
