drank Azteca Fire by Teavana
18 tasting notes

I was all prepared to be disappointed by this tea (after being very disappointed by Zoccolatte Spice, or however it is spelled) but I actually like it – I made it very strong, a heaping tablespoonful to 10oz boiling water, and both my first cup & the resteep have made both my nose and my tastebuds happy. The quibble I have with it is the whole “Azteca Fire” thing, that name makes me expect something along the lines of 52 teas’ stellar Mayan Chocolate Chai, full of spice and fire. Instead this tastes rather like a chocolate dipped strawberry. Yummy, but there are no Aztecs and no fire, just milk chocolate and berries. Neither flavor is particularly strong, but they aren’t regrettably weak either.

Preparation

Bio

I’m an expat Brit in America, a lifelong tea lover in that British “milk and two sugars” way, who 6 years ago learned to love her tea without sugar, and now is learning to love it without milk. Two summers ago I learned how to make a proper glass of American iced tea. I’m new to indie tea and having an alarming amount of fun trying out all the amazing blends I keep finding! I used to just drink the black tea I brought home from my visits to the UK plus things like Yogi ginger, and now I am finding a whole new world of tea out there to explore.

Right now I’m mostly interested in flavoured teas as I find those the easiest to enjoy without milk and especially in teas with little to no caffeine as too much caffeine can really send my body chemistry into a tailspin. In the early morning I indulge myself with a couple of cups of something caffeinated but after that it’s noncaf all the way. My teacups are pint sized and I usually have one near me.
