Preparation: Western
Tasting Note: The flavoring with the Rooibos, does a good job of creating a silky nutty, toasty feel. The apple keeps the blend sweeter and isn’t too tart. It has cocoa nibs that give it a little bit of chocolatey-ness but nothing too bitter. Added bonus, the flavors don’t feel muddled or bitter.

I have had this tea before and honestly, I am surprised that it is still good. I think I got this sample in 2021 around this time. Opened it a month ago and it still is pretty nice.

Flavors: Chocolate, Nutty

Preparation
Boiling 3 min, 0 sec 3 tsp 8 OZ / 236 ML

What a nice surprise! I pulled this sample from the Bits-N-Pieces bin for a change of pace this evening, expecting a little bit of muddiness from the hazelnut/rooibos combo. Not a bit of it! The apple pieces and cornflower add the perfect balance of fruit and brightness. Reminds me just a little of my mom’s fresh apple cake with raisins, minus the spice. Nostalgia always makes tea taste better.

Not bad for a rooibos. It has a nice caramel like flavor. Almost maple waffle. A little nutty. I overstepped it and it still turned out okay. I was distracted when sipping it while trying to make a fire with wet wood. I eventually succeeded, but it rained last night so no fire for me tonight. :/

It’s been pouring here for the last two days, blegh.

It’s been off and on here for a few days now, but it is more of a moderate drizzle.

Adagio Advent Calendar – Day 18

To be honest, I’m getting a bit tired of nutty teas lately – it seems like there have been a lot of them in my advents.

This one is very simple in flavor, it mostly just tastes like woody rooibos with some chestnut notes. Although looking at the ingredients, it looks like there are cacao nibs and caramel flavor as well. Unfortunately, I’m not really getting caramel past the natural dark sort of burnt sugar notes from the rooibos. The chestnut flavor is rich and pleasant.

Overall it’s a bit thin, and it sort of feels like a blander version of their banana nut honeybush.

Very good tea. Would definitely repurchase in 3oz quantity.

I really wanted to love this one.

I bought this as a work tea because I was running out of herbals, and I need them to balance out the other teas I’m fond of drinking. This was one that sounded so good to me on Adagio’s site. And it is good. It’s just not as caramel tasting as I expected. Good, kind of sweet, but also woody. I liked this one, but I probably won’t reorder it.

I wish this had more nuttiness. It mostly just tastes the same as Adagio’s caramel rooibos. I quite like the caramel rooibos, but I wanted this to be more true to its name. I find it amusing that Adagio automatically puts anything you order a 3 oz or larger size of into your “favorites” tab. Sometimes it just seems more cost effective to go with a larger size, but now these random teas I decided to try are forever “favorites”. I don’t use this tab anyway, so it doesn’t matter, it’s just funny to me.

Let the record reflect that this is delicious as a latte. It’s a fabulous dessert tea anyway, but the extra milk (and a little honey and vanilla essence) take it to a whole new level. It’s super-sweet (but not in a way that’s particularly cloying or overpowering), with lots of chestnut flavour, and an underlying richness that’s hard to define. It all adds up to extreme deliciousness, let me tell you.

Extreme deliciousness! Could do with some of that.
