drank Azteca Fire by Teavana
21 tasting notes
So I love dessert teas. Like, LOVE them. So, after drinking this in the teavana store and loving it, I bought some and took it home. Unfortunately, this doesn’t taste like what they gave me at all. Perhaps they used more sugar than I? Anyways instead of the amber delicious chocolate tea they gave me, no matter what I do I get a cloudy tea that is still chocolate but with a weird aftertaste that makes me smack my lips and my face go >__<. There is an oily sheen on the surface of the tea that does not add to the appeal. After several sips, there is a slight tingle of pepper on the tongue, but not enough to merit a “Fire” in the name. If you don’t concentrate, you will miss it entirely. Actually, I taste more “apple” in this than pepper, sort of like apple juice with chocolate pieces floating in it. I will still drink it, its not like I’m going to throw it out, but this one is not a re-buy. Maybe with some soy milk would be better? Maybe if I use more rock sugar, or try another sweetener? Those who have had success with this one, any tips to make it more drinkable?

Teavana tends to put a ton of sugar in their teas, the rock sugar that they also sell. I’m personally not a soy milk fan so couldn’t tell you whether or not that would work. I did put Almond Milk in my Azteca Fire the last time I made it, it made alittle more drinkable, but not by much. As well as more apriva (Like Splenda.) But then, so far the teas with chocolate in them has not worked for me.


Yay another Dessert tea person!!!

Must try this Teavana place!!

Hi all! My name is Katherine Corbin and I am a college student studying English and Business at Ball State University in Muncie, Indiana. I love to read, knit, belly dance, sing crazy songs in the shower (or whatever my current location might be…) and get up to general nonsense.

I also love tea (as well as coffee, but be still your judgement on my nefarious infidelity to tea.) I really look forward to trying a lot of new teas as well as learning new things about steeping, types of teas, etc. OPEN TO TEA SWAPS! :) Check cupboard. Love all, hear from you soon? -Kat
