First tea of the day. No, that is a lie. I tried to improve Aztec Fire (Teavana) buy adding hot pepper flakes. I think this could work, but I used WAAAAAAAAY to much…..my throat feels burnt.

I ordered some samples from this company thanks to Awkward Soul’s note. Glad she told me…

The smell of this dry is fresh with a light pineapple smell… quite nice. The brew smells very light and fresh as well, but I don’t smell the fruit a lot. It makes a light greenish yellow liquor as well.

The taste is a little bit disappointing. While the green tea base has a nice light, crisp grassy flavor, I hardly taste any of the fruit; cold or warm. It is really more of a light after taste that comes threw on the tongue after you have taken a breath. Then again being someone who has drank Teavana teas I might be ruined, since their fruity teas beat you into submission with their fruit flavors.

Overall, I don’t hate it. It just taste more a like a plain green tea to me. I would recommend it to white tea or green tea people to try; especially at $1.25 a sample with free shipping.

While this is not one of my favorite Persimmon Tree teas .. I am curious if maybe the previous tea ruined your tasting of this one?

hmmmm, I don’t think so. It had been around a hour before I brewed this one. Also I had drank milk and stuff to clear my throat. I still have some more or this, so I will be brewing it again.

It could be a possibility….

Azzrian

Ah that should be enough time then unless you totally burnt your mouth which I hope is not the case!

Nah, I wasn’t water temp. Just when I took a sip of the Aztec Fire and swallowed, the burning spice sensation hit my throat like a ton of bricks

Just love it and might keep as a staple

Really liked it, and makes a above average cup

Is good, but might not have a lot of complexity or wow factor. Is pretty average

It’s ok, but not great. Might need added ingredients or tweaking, and is below average.

Would only if nothing else was available. Would not recommend to someone.
