I recently ordered several Adagio Tea samples. This was the first I tried, and it really hit the spot. I’d come home from a long day at work to find my new teas waiting for me on the porch. After a bit of dithering as I tried to choose which one to try first, I settled on the Hazelnut. Oh the scent!! I thought it couldn’t possibly taste as good as it smelled…and I was wrong. It tastes even better! Although I normally add honey or sugar to my tea (Southerner here; grew up on the House Wine of the South—sweet iced tea), I found the flavor of this tea to be so nice that I didn’t add a thing. I had just enough time to relax with a cup before the power went out thanks to a wreck that wiped out a power pole. I’m glad I didn’t wait to try it. It would have been torture to be stuck in the house with delightful smelling tea and no way to heat water for it! I’m definitely doing this one to my list of favorites. The hazelnut is a powerful topnote, but the rich back tea flavor comes through very clearly.
