Its very good – I just wish so much that it were far spicer!
Sweet pepper tasting more than jalapeno but excellent flavorings very natural fresh and from the garden tasting!
This was the tea that AmazonV sent me for my HoppiTea gift! (thanks again!!!) And I’m thrilled. This is actually a tea that I’ve been wanting to try for some time but I just couldn’t bring myself to buy it for some reason. I don’t know why!
And this is really quite tasty. It smells like peppers, but not like the marinated jalapeno peppers you might buy in the store, instead, it smells like a fresh jalapeno… mixed with black tea. It’s really much more intriguing a smell than it sounds!
But what I really am enjoying (much more than I ever imagined I would) is the taste. This doesn’t have a Caliente! hot taste, but there is some kick to it. It’s much smoother than I thought it would be. I can taste the fruity notes of the pepper, but I can also taste the heat. It is not overwhelming though… a mild heat that progresses as I sip. This is actually quite an extraordinary tea! Now, I might need to try blending it with the tomato, basil and black pepper and make myself a salsa tea!
Errrm…. Hey Frank, how about a tortilla chip tea to go with it?
Thanks so much to Azzrian for this sample! I totally agree, this is more sweet pepper than hot! and I don’t know what, but something else was amiss. Maybe it was me, but I don’t think so…
This one didn’t speak to me as tasty at all. The first of many misses today. But you know what? I didn’t mind for some reason. I was in a mood to experiment :)
Thank you LiberTEAS for this*. I’m not usually a Jalapeno fan (or anything too spicy really), but this was different and pretty darn tasty! There is a nice bit of kick and spice to it, but not overpowering, just really nice with a smooth finish.

I received this in my Hoppitea package. I just haven’t logged it yet. I was hesitant at first to try it wondering how Jalapeno and black tea would mix. The dry leaves smell like Jalapeno. In the cup it’s not too hot as I was expecting. It tastes more like green pepper. It’s not bad though, and mixing it with a little Lapsang……yum!
