I’ve been mixing this tea with others in my cabinet, trying to find the blend that will make this more palatable. I’ve tried quite a few combinations, few of which are worth mentioning. But now, with just a few teaspoons left, I have finally found what I believe to be a beautiful match for the Azteca Fire.
I mixed equal parts Azteca Fire and Teavana’s Strawberry Slender Pu-Erh black tea, steeped for a few minutes, then added a bit of cream and demerara sugar. The result was absolutely delightful. It was, by far, one of the best blends I’ve tried. Some here have suggested that the Azteca Fire is best when blended with other teas, and I would agree. It seems that it is especially harmonious with black teas.
I will keep my rating the same since I’m still not fond of this tea by itself, but these two in a mug together are magic.
