This is not a true tasting note of the pure hazelnut tea this time (although I do drink that also) because I went half and half with the adagio caramel tea also in this cup. I just love this blend with milk and sugar. It really goes well after my habitual cup of hot chocolate in the morning because coming down from the sweetness of the chocolate, I don’t like to change directly to a more traditional black tea because the difference between the two is too harsh and I end up tasting nothing but bitterness. Much better to step down slowly.
I am in love with this tea. It smells so nice, the hazelnut smell is quite strong, but not overpowering. The taste is nutty and (with milk and a bit of sugar added) very smooth. It’s got a bit of an edge to it without those additives. The caramel adds an additional sweet note and they blend together really well. The aftertaste is a tad bit bitter, but nothing too awful.
I think this is one of the better flavoured teas out there.
