I didn’t like this tea as much as I thought I would. Though I like hazelnuts, I didn’t get that taste in the tea.

This new flavor combines the full, bright taste of Ceylon black tea with the toasty, creamy sweetness of hazelnuts. Hazelnut’s natural pairing with chocolate makes this tea a perfect complement with dessert or a touch of sugar crystals.

HazelnutDORI'S TEA COTTAGE
A while back when I started looking for loose leaf tea at places besides Teavana I ordered some Adagio sample packs. At the time I was really interested in trying some flavored whites. I tried the flavored white sample pack and was horrified. Since everything I tried was awful I wrote off Adagio completely. Thinking everything I had from them would be the same quality. I was about ready to give this away, and though well heck I will give it a go. Man I am glad I did. This was a great work tea. The scent and flavor is very strong, but it seems to work. I think this would be a great tea with milk and sugar. This was definitely a sweet hazelnut. I couldn’t identify the base, but it supported the strong flavor. I will be hanging onto this sample and enjoying this as a work tea.
I’m drank this today, as a personal blend. I mixed 1 tsp of this with 1 tsp of Cream tea from Adagio. It was creamy and nutty at the same time. I expect this would be good mixed 1/3 hazelnut, 1/3 cream, 1/3 chocolate chip, but I haven’t tried that yet.
By itself, I did not care for this tea, even with added milk and sugar.
This sample came from MissB. Another black tea that has surprised me. I tried to be so careful not to go over the steep time. I was actually planning on keeping a bit under the steep time as I don’t like my black tea strong but things happen and it went over by a couple of minutes. JustJames described it right. This is similar to ferarro rocher minus the chocolate! I don’t drink milk or cream but I bet for those who do this would be amazing with some milk added. Still a really good tea without anything added. Just love the hazelnut flavour. I’m glad there’s a bit more in the sample so I can enjoy this again.
There is an overwhelming licorice taste and smell with this tea. No hazelnut (or any other nut) flavor, just strong, bitter licorice. Quite disappointed, as I usually like their teas. I’ll try mixing it with another tea so it doesn’t go to waste, but as it is, it’s almost undrinkable to me.
