drank Azteca Fire by Teavana
111 tasting notes

Another tea I’m getting to try courtesy of…yep you guessed it AmazonV!

This one I’ve been curious about for quite sometime. I shop Teavana quite a bit in person while my son is making me wait for him while he shops the mall so I see this one alot and wondered if I’d like it the Teavana girl recommends it with there Black Dragon Pearls and well ya’ll know how I like my black Dragon pearls!

I need a real caffeine kick today as the weather here is just blah! It’s all overcast and just not a beautiful day. So I went for this and blended 3 dragon pearls and one and a half teaspoons of the Azteca Fire set the timer for 5 minutes and came back to what appears to be a cup of coffee. LOL this is not good considering that I hate coffee well I actually probably like coffee but the longer I keep myself from experimenting with coffee the better. I do not need another drinking habit so I refrain from coffees.

Anyway I’m rambling on to the tasting note these two mixed are dark like coffee and in the smell I get like a nutty smell mixed with chocolate. This cup is thick like much thicker than just plain tea. The two together taste like chocolate coffee with a hint of nut. I would have loved to have tasted the strawberry in this one I know it’s in there because I saw it in the dry leaf but sadly I could not taste it. This is a good cup I think I like it better than Mayan Chocolate Chai but it does not have the chili pepper kick that Mayan chocolate chai has.

This cup might actually wake me up and get me out of my sleepy stupor.

I love the black dragon pearls also. I bought them originally because they were pearls and I found that intriguing, not to mention that I’m crazy in love with jasmine pearls… not that I expected the black dragon pearls to be anything like jasmine pearls… but, it was just the similar shape. LOL

This one is not as spicy as the Mayan Chai! I have always wanted to try the Teagschwender’s chocolate-chili tea (which should be similar to the Mayan and the Azteca)…

@Liber TEAS I am trying to like jasmine tea but so far I find it just Meh.

@Lori, I like really spicy stuff too and this Azteca Fire is not really spicy I only noticed the spice on the initial sip. The Mayan chai I tasted spice throughout the cup. I too am interested in the Teagschwender’s chocolate chili and have been seriously contemplating an order (I have my shopping cart ready) I just need to add in my C.C.# and that’s hard to do because I really don’t NEED tea right now but it feels weird not expecting any packages even though I do not need any tea! Ya know? :)

LiberTEAS

Soccermom: Have you tried jasmine pearls?

AmazonV

pssst-try mixing the azteca with the mate :) spicy nutty morning kick in the butt

SoccerMom

LiberTEAS- I have had jasmine pearls from Samovar once and they were okay. Not surprisingly (because she’s so good to me) AmazonV sent me some Jasmine Pearls from two leaves and a bud. I will be trying those pretty soon I hope that I love them I unlike most others on here haven’t found anything I LOVE from Samovar (maybe my palate is not refined?).

AmazonV- DO NOT TEMPT me. You you know that I will mix anything with Mate. I will probably try it tomorrow morning LOL. Seeing how I always need a morning kick in the butt this maybe a good thing in both taste and kick butt factor.

SoccerMom

AmazonV- BTW I picked up the raspberry zinger today and will try the lipton/r.zinger iced recipe you mentioned this weekend.

Lori

Have you tried the vanilla tea from Samovar? it is quite good.

Yes too many teas – where do we store them all?

SoccerMom

Lori, Nope I have not tried the vanilla tea from Samovar. I placed an order a couple months ago and order like 15 samples and I didn’t get vanilla. Why am I missing out on something?? LOL

Lori

The vanilla is very good

New to the world of hot tea, being born and raised in Texas we typically only drink lipton black tea, sweetened and iced of course! I recently discovered the world of hot tea / flavored teas and am thoroughly enjoying my new little world of tea!
