I love chestnuts. I wanted so much more from this tea. Its so bland and lacking to me. I still dont know what people are smelling, because the smell to me is extremely faint. Maybe I’m just used to DAVIDsTEA, 52 Teas, A Quarter to Tea—-theyre so much bolder with their flavoring than Adagio is. And I think I’m not a fan of Adagio’s black tea, like the leaves they use- for me it just overpowers the flavors! Its too bold. They either need to use a different type of black tea or up their flavoring. Idk but this just wasn’t that great. Oh and the picture of the blend here on Steepster isn’t accurate. There are no chestnuts in the actual blend- its just black tea leaves.
