I thought I was going to be bowled over by the nuttiness, but it actually tastes more like a warm, nutty cookie than a handful of nuts. The taste lingers so I wouldn’t recommend it as a meal tea, but it’s great on it’s on in the morning or for a desert tea. It’s also very aromatic and the scent hung in the air even after I finished steeping. Someone asked me what I was baking. I usually add a little sweetener if I’m drinking it hot, but nothing when it’s iced. I also stir it a bit and let it sit after steeping. Seems to taste better that way, which I could actually say of most Adagio blends.
