This black tea blend has a strong aroma and a nutty flavor. Reminiscent of the winter holidays when the tastes of warming hazelnuts pervade the senses. Can be enjoyed as is, but is also delightful with a little added cream.
Ingredients: black teas, hazelnut flavor and marigold petals.
Brew tea at 212º – steep for 3 minutes.

Yet another blend from MissB! thanks yet again! This is a lot like Adagio’s Hazelnut tea which I LOVE. Not quite the same, as I think the base is different, but I think the flavor is the same. I love the toasty tastiness of it. It does taste like genuine hazelnut. I’m not sure how they do it! It seems as it cools, the toastiness gets toastier. The black tea base is light enough to showcase the hazelnut flavor. I wouldn’t mind a stronger base though, since the flavor is decently strong. I wish I had more to say about this one.. it’s just nice. I think hazelnut teas are extra comforting. Another nice one from MissB’s package!

Suuuper nutty, and the base is so smooth. It reminds me of Florence, but I’m not missing the chocolate notes. Sweet and perfect all on it’s own – but I was naughty and added a splash of vanilla creamer for a treat. Ah, yum.
This is a VERY strong-smelling tea. It requires quarantining from my other teas. Just sayin’. ;)
Smells strongly of hazelnut before and after brewing. Flavor-wise, I get strong hazelnut (almost as if I can chew it, it’s so thick) and then the black base – which seems more apparent as it’s cooled. A touch of Truvia makes this taste decadent. I wish I’d grabbed a bit more.
A sample from Miss B! This was my early evening cup last night, and I was expecting a fairly mild flavour. I’ve not found a hazelnut tea that particularly struck me before, but this one was quite an eye opener. I used 1 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 4 minutes in boiling water. I added a splash of milk, because it brewed up pretty dark.
It’s quite a straightforward tea in many ways. The flavour is fairly simple and one-note, and it’s definitely not the kind of tea where there’s a lot going on and you really have to think about what you’re tasting. This tea, basically, is exactly what it promises to be; hazelnut on a smooth, mellow black base. It’s rich and nutty to taste, and it is specifically hazelnut that I can taste, rather than just generic “nut”. The hazelnut flavour emerges mostly in the mid-sip, and then there’s the slight bitterness of hazelnut skin in the aftertaste. It didn’t strike me as a particularly sweet tea, and the base wasn’t malty, so there’s nothing to conflict with the richness of the hazelnut and the slightly savoury vibe that can have. I did find that the flavour seemed to strengthen as the tea cooled, which was a pleasant surprise. Possibly this one would make a good cold brew, although I don’t have enough leaf at the moment to try that out. I enjoyed this one a lot more than I anticipated, though, and so it would be a possible future purchase for me. Maybe one day I’ll get to test my cold brew theory with this tea! In the meantime, I shall enjoy a second hot cup before I have to say goodbye. I’m really glad I had the opportunity to try this one, because I’m not sure I would have picked it out of my own accord.
This is yet another tea from the package Courtney sent my way (Thank you!!). I am really enjoying the nutty flavor to this. However, the base is also quite prominent and I find it is competing with the flavor and really taking away from the cup.
