Aztec Spice Pu-Erh
Dive into this bold Pu-erh tea with indulgent dark chocolate and warm spices. If you're a fan of spicy hot chocolate or Mexican mole sauce, you will especially love this Pu-erh blend. The deep, earthy Pu-erh tea melts with rich ground chocolate bits in your cup. A hint of spicy pepper adds a kick to get you going.
Organic Pu-erh Tea, Organic Cinnamon, Organic Honeybush, Organic Cocoa Nibs, Organic Safflower, Organic Chili Flakes, Organic Ground Chocolate* (sugar, cocoa-processed w/alkali, unsweetened chocolate, soy lecithin, vanilla), Natural Flavors (Contains Allergen: Soy, Milk, Egg, Tree Nuts, Wheat)
Deep earthy notes, rich chocolate and a spicy finish
Love, love. Love!!!
This is one of my faves. It has the best smell when it's steeping - such chocolatey, cinnamon goodness! There is a slight spicy heat to it, but not overpowering at all - it's lovely. Very comforting!
I definitely think there’s some kick to this tea. Delish ☕️
Well blended tea. Not spicy but has a good "spice kick" feeling.
I came to Whistling Kettle looking specifically for chocolates (I had only one other provider with only one chocolate tea). Whistling Kettle has 6 right now. They are:
Aztec Spice, Chocolate Chai, Mocha Latte, Belgian Chocolate, Salted Caramel Chocolate, and Chocolate Monkey. A great spread. I limited myself to choosing only two favorites since I wanted to purchase bulk 8 ounces which will last quite a while. My favorites are the Aztec Spice and the Salted Caramel (for now:-). It was not easy to narrow all these 6 choices! If I have a 3rd choice it would probably be the Chocolate Monkey.
So here is my review of the "Aztec Spice". It is a Puer (usually and aged black tea). It has 3 different kinds of chocolate, plus chili flakes and vanilla, and a few other spices. Don't let the chili flakes deter you! And Vanilla is an accepted partner for chocolate. These ingredients and the others go back a Millenium or so in the central a south american cultures. Aztec Spice has a smooth feel over the palate and a bit of zip from the chili and cinnamon. It can be re-brewed at least once (with an additional 1/2 tsp spoonful fresh). It is wonderful piping hot as well as Iced. I is also a great compliment to ice cream or gelato. I would suggest a mint flavor. So, more to come later on my 2nd choice of "Salted Caramel Chocolate"!
