I really have to recommend this as one of my favorite teas from Adagio. It is very straightforward, the tin is beautiful, and you get a large quantity for a reasonable price. The base for this black tea is much more mellow than some of Adagio’s other flavored blacks. The hazelnut is the main flavor, followed by the black tea, and has hints of cream. Basic, but tasty!

So. Good. I think that this one is beguilingly simple; just notes of black tea and hazelnut. But that is why it is so great! It isn’t trying to be some crazy blend with 1,000 ingredients. It is simple and easily pleasing. Again, super awesome kudos for Adagio’s Zodiac line, which I seem to be the new spokesperson for.
Really wonderful tea. I had a cuppa this along with breakfast. It is actually very strong in the caffeine department. I strongly advise people who love black teas, cream, and nut notes to try this one out. It is a great deal and tastes wonderful.
A wonderful black tea. It tastes mainly of hazelnut, vanilla/cream, and baked goods. The base is not overwhelming, but plays a major part in the flavor of the tea. I still haven’t tried it with milk, but I bet it would be excellent.
This tea is simply awesome. I could smell it before I even opened my package! I was worried that it would taste boring because it’s a pretty simple premise: hazelnut and cream. But it is so good. I think that I’ve already used 1oz of the tin simply because I’m favoring it over the rest of my stock. I can’t believe that Adagio is selling these blends for only $9/4oz AND they come in a tin. The tin itself is also beautiful. It also has steeping instructions, description, and is going to be a nice tin to have around after I finish the tea.
As for the tea itself the cream is much more obvious than I thought it would be. It really balances this flavor out. It reminds me a bit of yellow cake. This tea is much less temperamental than the other black by Adagio that I’ve been drinking.
So overall I’d really suggest this out of the two new versions of the Zodiac blends that I’ve tried. I’m so impressed by the amount and quality of the tea that they give you for this that I’m planning on trying at least two others in the series. This tea is on my “must haves” for Adagio.
