I let this steep in my Timolino for what, two hours? I lost track of time. As soon as I found out that this also has spices in it, I immediately got a hunch that this would be a lot like Yogi’s Choco Aztec, which I actually quite liked. I went through a good two boxes while I was living in Linköping because I was too lazy to venture out to tea shops and stuck with grocery store stuff there.

And this basically is that except enhanced, both in cocoa and spice flavours. Predominantly chocolate and cinnamon, the flavour profile truly does reflect that of a Mexican hot chocolate, minus the chili heat.

I like it, but I think I’m all burnt out of affection for this type of flavour profile. A local company which specializes in matcha and matcha mixes even offers an Aztec hot chocolate mix which tastes almost the same. So essentially, it’s been done over and over.

As for the vanilla, it’s virtually non-existent. They ought to rename this blend like Aztec Cacao or Xocolatl or something.

Is there even a tea shop in Linköping?

Fjellrev

Yeah, there’s one in Stora Torget called Tebladet.

Almost every time I’d walk by, I’d be tempted to walk in, but their blends kind of sounded uninspiring on their site. But it does look like they expanded their line.

Anna

Haha, classic Swedish (= German) blends! I found this one too when I googled: http://teboden.com/te-2

If you didn’t have such a refined palate, I would seriously send you samples of all the Sweden-bought teas I have, so you could see what you missed (nothing).

Fjellrev

Oh, weird how I missed that one. Guess I never passed it. And it’s ok, really! Haha, I used to try the teas in the bulk bins at Hemköp and ICA. Not sure what happened. I seemed to stop bothering after I tried the infamous Söderblandning.

Anna

Unnnggghhh, it’s the WORST. But hey – not as bad as Uppsalablandning. Just uergh.
