Really busy stressful day planned, so I felt like coming back to a comforting old friend. Brewed up 1 tsp of this one mixed with 1 tsp of “Caramel,” a combination I’ve tried and loved before. It’s a warm, nutty, maple sugary treat, so indulgent and rich. Really I can hardly make myself wait for it to cool a tad and keep burning my tongue on it! Threw in a pinch of truvia as usual – I do like my teas a bit on the sweet side.

It’s a pretty tasting tea that holds up well to complements such as a bit of cinnamon, vanilla, or cocoa if you have it. It’s not all that potent on its own. My favorite way to have it is with a cinnamon skim milk froth and a bit of brown sugar. Great tea, though definitely be careful about adding to sugar if you decide to, and it seems to be susceptible to tasting burnt if left to brew close to the 5 minute mark.

After another lackluster cup of Grape Expectations, I decided to give up on it and toss the remaining 2-3 PS that I had left. I then decided to finally try this tea as I have put it off for a while now.

I bought a few years back a hazelnut tea from The Tea Haus in London. The only way that I actually enjoyed it was if I mixed it with the Chocolate Cream tea that I got from them too. So because of that, I wasn’t expecting too much.

This tea, however, is nothing like that tea in which I’m comparing it to. This tea is very nice. I love the chestnut flavour and how it’s almost… creamy? Maybe that’s because I added milk, but either way, I’m very much enjoying it and I know I will enjoy what I have left of this one, which isn’t too much.

Would I get this one again? Maybe. But it’s not one I would keep in stock in my house.

The very last Adagio sample in my cupboard! Hopefully next time I’ll remember that I don’t actually like their teas and I’ll refrain from purchasing! :P This has their generic black tea base, though the leaves aren’t too terribly broken. I don’t see any nut pieces (as shown in the picture) in my sample. Dry scent is nutty, creamy, and very sweet.

Uhhh… The steeped tea smells like waffles drenched in butter and syrup. o.o! This would make a rather nice air freshener. Unfortunately, it doesn’t actually taste like waffles. The black base is mellow and smooth, and it does have an interesting buttery element. Combine this with the sweetness of what I think is intended to be a candied chestnut tea, and I can see where the waffle smell comes from. Overall, not bad, especially for Adagio.

I like this tea a lot using less tea and a shorter steep. It holds up well to a second steep. The room smells really amazing while you are drinking it, too.

A sample from MissB from a while back. Thank you!

I actually meant for this to be a sipdown, but I went to edit my spreadsheet and discovered that I have a couple of bags of this somewhere. This makes me incredibly happy because I love this tea. It is, however, the end of my loose leaf ):

It probably would have been harder to get rid of, but I’ve hoarded for too long and sadly, the flavours are fading. Luckily I caught it in time and though the tea base was weak, and a little astringent from the long steep I gave it, the chestnut flavour is just as delicious as I remember it. Warm, comforting and roasty, with a creamy nuttiness and an almost maple syrup-like aftertaste without the sweetness. Reminds me so much of baking! Just like some kind of muffin. Yummy.

I should preface this by saying I’ve never had a chestnut, so I can’t say “OMG, this totally tastes like chestnuts” or “Wow, Adagio. This tastes nothing like chestnuts”. I also have to say that I was hesitant to try this simply because it said “chestnut” on the front. I typically don’t enjoy nuts (unless it’s a pistachio). And, chestnuts especially seemed to be about as appealing as a store-bought fruitcake at Christmas. But, I was pleasantly surprised by this tea.

One of my favorite things to do before trying out new tea is to breath in the aroma of the tea. It kind of gives me an idea of what I’m getting in to. When I opened the package, I didn’t even have to bring the leaves to my nose to get a good whiff. The aroma was strong, but not in an unappealing way. It was like walking into a kitchen when someone is baking cookies.

I was surprised how little of the black tea I could smell though. All I could notice was the “chestnut” flavoring. This tea had the most buttery and sugary and nutty aroma. These were the things that popped into my head: burnt sugar. Creme Brule. Multi-grain pancakes from Anna’s, a local restaurant. Smothered in butter and warm syrup of course. Notice how none of those say “chestnut”?

Only after I brewed the tea did I really notice the black tea. It was full-bodied, but it wasn’t overpowering. The buttery and nuttiness only showed up as a delightful aftertaste. I drank my tea without sugar or milk. It really doesn’t need it. But, I bet a dash of milk and sugar would turn Adagio’s Chestnut Tea into a nice dessert tea.

Bottom Line, I really enjoyed this tea. It left me feeling cozy and wishing for a snowy afternoon. There was one downfall though. I only received a sample of this type of tea, and I can’t stop thinking of it!

This tea is surprisingly tasty….but, it tastes like maple? Sorta? It was sweet, and I’m not entirely sure it was maple, but also not sure it was like chestnut either. At least the base was muted from the milk, so no bitterness on my end.

I will happily have the last of my sample from Dexter and hope it is as tasty still.
