3 tsp of Azteca Fire
3 tsp of Strawberry Paraiso
Mixed them both together in my Bodum.
Let steep for 16 total minutes.
(Note: I always make a 16 oz batch because thats about how much fits in my bodum.
Taste just like a Chocolate Covered Strawberry.
Love the smell and taste of this tea. Really strong chocolate smells and tastes. Love the popcorn pieces in the Strawberry Paraiso makes it sweet. Aftertaste of a bite of a chocolate covered strawberry from Godiva. No joke. Very good on ice. However, delicious served hot.

Nice hot-chocolatey taste. Made a perfect dessert for tonight.

This isn’t bad…

I know chocolate teas are mostly (by nature) a disappointment to me, but I figured I might try it before I couldn’t anymore.

It’s not the most delicious tea I’ve ever tried, but I like having it on hand as a desert tea. It’s not terribly spicy, and the flavor that comes out most in this tea is a sort of tang from the fruit (maybe even from the chilies). There’s a bit of spice that lingers as an aftertaste, and so reminds me of drinking water and pepper flakes at the same time. It’s there but not as strong as it could be.

There is a bit of chocolate, but it’s a rather watery flavor. Naturally, that’s the case because the tea is being steeped in water. I’m sure adding a bit of milk (or even preparing it like a Chai in milk itself) might make the chocolate a bit more believable.

It’s a tasty tea and my family likes it so I suppose it wasn’t a terrible investment. In fact, I’m glad that I snatched up a half pound before Teavana pulled this from their shelves. I’m sure I’ll find other ways to prepare this.

I love this tea! It is great to use as a mixer tea. I use to mix it with english breakfast and puerh or Matte Vana. It was a great mix for the morning or afternoon pick up at work.

I was all prepared to be disappointed by this tea (after being very disappointed by Zoccolatte Spice, or however it is spelled) but I actually like it – I made it very strong, a heaping tablespoonful to 10oz boiling water, and both my first cup & the resteep have made both my nose and my tastebuds happy. The quibble I have with it is the whole “Azteca Fire” thing, that name makes me expect something along the lines of 52 teas’ stellar Mayan Chocolate Chai, full of spice and fire. Instead this tastes rather like a chocolate dipped strawberry. Yummy, but there are no Aztecs and no fire, just milk chocolate and berries. Neither flavor is particularly strong, but they aren’t regrettably weak either.

This tea disappointed me. From the name and description, I was expecting a firey, chocolate concoction. Instead, I got weak chocolate water with no kick. I’ll try different things – steeping longer or mixing with other teas, but for now, this one gets a low rating from me. :(

This was majorly disappointing. With a name like “Aztec Fire,” it’s reasonable to expect this to have a spicy taste. Instead, it just tasted like weak chocolate-water. (And I’d rather have hot chocolate, which tastes much, much better.) Steve and I each had about three servings of this (one serving is ~16oz for us) before we got to the bottom of the sample bag, and shockingly, we finally got a little bit of spice (I guess it settled at the bottom). However, even that still wasn’t enough to redeem the tea. Serious disappointment.

I was so disappointed with this tea. But I think with the fact that even though I like the idea of dessert teas, I do not like the ones with chocolate or caramel in it. However, I think I would of liked this more if the strawberry stood out more. Not so much the apple, because while I love eating apples, I’m generally not fond of cooked apples or juice/cider,etc..) The flavor does not seem rounded out/balanced, enough for me. If I am going to have a complex/multi flavored tea, then balanced out it has to be. I still have a fair amount left, so will try different steep times, and maybe different water temps. But I’m not going to hold my breath on it.

This was a tad different to me but i am not unhappy that i decided to get some. i picked some up in the kenwood mall store in ohio and at the time, the azteca fire was 3.95 for 2 oz. some i figured " what the heck!" and went to town. As i road home with my friend and got my hopes up i continued to sniff the bag. When i got home, it was the first batch on and while it brewed, it smelled fantastic. This, however changed after it was finished. I feel like it lost all kinds of personality when it finished brewed and the taste was mediocre at best. The flavor profile was alright, kinda complex in using peppers, chocolate, and strawberries. i feel like the chocolate was a little overpowering, so much so the you only get a little pepper and really no strawberry at all. After all is said and done, i really do like the azteca fire tea, it’s just not all its cracked up to be.
