From Pelican Tea

Firewater is the original recipe by Pelican Tea and remains our favorite to this day. Premium Orange Pekoe black tea and home-toasted brown rice produce an earthy blend that’s as comforting as it is spicy. Good around a campfire or mixed with your favorite spirit (silver tequila being our spirit of choice).

Steep for five minutes, directly off the boil.

Backlog:

I have to admit that I was a little afraid of this tea. I like spicy flavors, but, habanero? The spiciest pepper that I generally deal with, culinarily speaking, is the Jalapeno, although on a rare occasion, I might pick up a habanero, roast it, and then dice it fine and mix it with crushed pineapple to make a syrup to top ice cream. Quite a yummy ice cream topping, but, I’m still just a wee bit afraid of habanero because while it can be quite good when handled correctly, it can also be way too hot when it’s overdone.

And this quote from the Pelican Tea website: “Exceptionally Spicy, Habanero Infused” didn’t do a whole lot to assuage my fears.

But I decided to be bold and daring and try it.

And YUM!

Yes … spicy. Yes. Yes it is. And it burns … but in a very good way.

Love the spice! And the heat no meal is complete without Tabasco!

I’m intrigued. I love spicy things, too!

LiberTEAS

Oh, I love spice … but, habanero … is a bit daring for me. Spicy for me is usually Jalapeno or Chipotle. Although I do put some cayenne in my chili. But, when I see the word “habanero” I kind of … wince and think “oh no, it might be too spicy!” But this was really quite good.

I am so allergic to habanero. I love the flavor and the heat but turn instantly bright red faced. Jalapeno makes me crawl all over (doesn’t stop me from loving them) I brought all this on myself by overdoing it in cheese dip a few years ago. Before that dip I ate them all the time. Stupid allergies.

@KS – bummer! I can’t really relate, because I don’t have any serious food allergies like that. But I feel for you, it can’t be easy to have to limit yourself like that. :(
