From Adagio Teas

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.

Steeped up a steaming mug of this dessert scented black tea this morning with breakfast. Thanks Lori for sending a generous portion of this tea my way. It’s a sweet, toasted hazelnut black tea that did well on its own. I think next time I’ll try it with a splash of cream and dollop of sugar and see what flavors it may bring out. I think it would hold up well to milk and sugar. This is a delicious dessert tea (that I had for breakfast :))

205 °F / 96 °C 3 min, 30 sec

I have dessert teas all the time for breakfast! On the rare special occasion I even make matcha or chai drinking chocolate for breakfast… which of course is ok since tea and chocolate are both high in antioxidents… right…? It’s great to be an adult and drink/eat whatever the heck you want for breakfast!


To me, this tea has a tendency to be astringent. Also, it should definitely hold up well to cream and sugar…this tea is VERY strong..


I haven’t tried this one plain, but I did have it in a blend (with vanilla oolong and irish breakfast, I think?) It reminded me of hazelnut vanilla coffee and was soooo good. I bought my mother a tin of hazelnut…I’ll have to try it on its own next time I’m over there.

I can finally drink tea again after having my wisdom teeth removed! Well, actually I could have a few days ago, but with one of my ‘teeth’ hurting pretty badly I didn’t want to risk it and waited until the surgeon gave me the go ahead today :)

I wanted to have something warm and soothing to end my night, so when I saw this sample pack in my tea box it jumped out at me.

The aroma as I opened the bag was rich and hazelnutty. It smelled delicious. The aroma stayed just as nutty as it steeped & filled my kitchen with a comforting warmth.

The tea itself required very little sweetening. I added just a touch of milk- it seemed fitting for this tea- and I fell in love. Nutty, rich, silky, warm and soothing. A very relaxing cup of tea. It would be a great way to end the day or to wake up with in the morning.

Oh poor you! Hope you feel better!


Well, it sounds like you had a better wisdom teeth removal experience than i did, which left me with some temporary paralysis in my cheek and an inability to open my mouth more than 1 cm for about a month… :P

I feel much better, thank you Bonnie! Especially now that I can drink tea again!

@Krystaleyn- thankfully I did have a pretty good experience, though my lower right extraction site still hurts because the tooth there was being very stubborn and didn’t want to come out! I’m so sorry you had that much pain when you had yours removed! At least it was temporary!!

A nice toasty cup of Hazelnut!
My only wish would be that the base wasn’t Ceylon, but it’s still tasty!
I even added a touch of maple syrup to it.

Have you tried the honeybush version?

Hmmmm…no, have you :)

Back to the old routine after yesterday’s green marathon…

This is an okay tea – definitely not heavy on the hazelnut. Admittedly, I use a lot of leaf which I don’t mind because this is pretty cheap compared to coffee – something I tell myself I want, but don’t drink because its a little too strong. So this will tide me over until I can find something that pops more in both the hazelnut flavor and tea’s strength (caffeine)…

Side note – I did find some brown rice, popped and unpopped, in the hazelnut tin. Sifted those out, but still used them to brew it in the tea. While not noticeable, I think it probably brought out a little of the toasty nuttiness of the tea.

Thank you Madeline for the wonderful sample! Your sample box has really been a treat. I really like this tea, I’ve been blending it with Teavana’s English Breakfast. I like how strong and distinct the hazlenut flavor is. However, I do have to be careful about over steeping this one, I’ve done it a few times and it was overwhelmingly bitter.

185 °F / 85 °C 2 min, 0 sec

Adagio’s flavored blacks get bitter SO easily. I can’t do over 2 minutes or it’s kind of undrinkable for me.

Tea and Trees

It was so bitter this morning I had to throw it out and make a new cup. You are right, definitely undrinkable when it gets bitter.

Thanks Raul for getting me to try this tea!
I love hazelnut coffee, so it only makes sense to try it in a tea form.

And Adagio rocked it!

The smell when you open the bag is a wonderful hazelnut. I love the black tea for this as it compliments the hazelnut flavor. And then while brewing there is that promise of a delightful hazelnut flavor.

I love this tea first thing in the morning. It hits my senses & wakes me up…just like my coffee would.

Overall, this is a tea I always keep on hand. I have the biggest bag available so that I’m never without. And I must brag again that I am in a one day delivery zone for Adagio…well, that is until they open a store here in NY…HINT HINT to the people at Adagio!!!


nicely put ;)


Thought you’d like that!

This was a huge and generous gift from Lori via the take it away thread.

I love hazelnut, so sniffing this tea makes me happy.

WOW that is some strong tea, next time I am brewing it much shorter!

It has yummy morning wake up black tea potential (shorter steep, some milk and sugar)

Post-Steep Additives: sugar, a bit better, could have used some milk

I am fully confident I will like this tea at least as a 50% once I fiddle with it

my mom-Delicious with less leaf, even with more time, she thinks I am crazy for not liking it.

The last of this tea is upon me:( I enjoyed smelling the tea in the tin..When I open my tea drawer, I could smell it! The Ceylon base is good but the hazelnut is not strong. The $2.00 sample was very much enjoyed and I know it will be missed in my cupboard. This tea is on my shopping list. Enjoying the last cup with a chocolate:)

This is the first tea from the sample pack that was sent to me by Will Work For Tea!

The smell was great, I loved it instantly. The nuts are very “present” in the smell, but not dominating the whole picture.

I was so exited about this that I almost oversteeped it, but it turned out I held it only for 30 or so more seconds than I wanted. Good luck for me :)

The taste was very, very mild, really creamy and dessert-y. I added a hint of sugar, will try it with milk next time! Overall, one of the best dessert teas I’ve drank, a really good one for evenings with a book or some good music.

I like this far more than I thought I would. I don’t know what my hang up was… it smells great, and I like hazelnuts. I think I assumed it would need sugar or something. However, it’s good just as it is! It just has a tiny edge that some sugar would knock off if you wanted to avoid it. In fact, for a flavored tea, it’s quite good!
