Really want to try this — a fruit herbal blend named “Azteca Fire” sure sounds promising.

Everyone’s favorite blend of chocolate and strawberries with a kick. This modern take on the ancient tradition of blending chili peppers with cacao stands the test of time. A spicy refreshment any time of day.

I want to love this tea. On paper it sounds like I would. On paper, it is perfect. In execution? Not so much. This certainly does taste like hot chocolate made with water, that said, made with too much water. It’s such a shame because it smells DIVINE. I’m trying to figure out whether it’s best to just exchange the tea for something I know I like or to find another use for it. I’ll probably end up doing the former.
Sooo disappointed! One of my favorite comfort drinks growing up was mexican cocoa and I was hoping this would be reminiscent of that. I think Teavana missed the mark with this tea big time. The smell is ok, it smells like chocolate covered raisins so a bit cloying but the taste is totally different. I tried this tea first by itself with no sweetener of any kind and frankly it tasted like dirty water with a dash of powdered hot chocolate mixed in. I think the biggest turn off was how oily this tea is; it seriously had a film of oil at the top! I did try this tea a second time doing half Azteca Fire and half Java Vana Mate and it was better but still not something I would ever crave. Will not be buying again.
I bought this tea at the Heavenly sale at Teavana this week, and made it for the first time tonight. The dry tea smells strongly like chocolate and fruit, and the brewed tea carries the same overwhelming chocolate smell. There isn’t enough spice to warrant “fire” in the name, in my opinion, as the spice only shows up minimally on the aftertaste. It’s a nice aftertaste, but it’s the only time you can taste the spice. It’s a good tea, but not a great one. I’m going to keep what I bought and I’ll definitely drink it, but I don’t think I would buy it again if Teavana started stocking it again.
I would have to say this tea is very dull, no taste to it.
For me it is just hot water Im drinking, you have to use a LOT!!! to get something out of it, no chocolate, no pepper, NOTHING…… so don´t spend your money on it.
It really tastes like warm maple syrup, without the pancakes… :-(
