      This was a delicious tea, I really enjoyed it. It has a pleasantly nutty, autumn-y flavor.

    • 

      This is by far the best of Adagio's nutty teas. It's warm and sweet and almost mapley. The only real problem I have with it is that it gets bitter if you overbrew it, but as long as you don't go over three minutes it's wonderful.

      This is a wonderful tea I can see myself drinking VERY often! It's nutty and hearty and delicious! It's different than hazelnut and really pretty unique. I've not tasted anything quite like it before, and it reminds me of a really nice dessert of some kind. I had this on its own to give it a fair review, but I know it will be amazing blended with other teas too!

      LOVE it <3

    • 

      This has a hint of natural sweetness and a nutty, toasty flavor that blends well with the strong black tea. To keep it from getting too bitter, I steep 3 min @ 195F.

      Very solid tea. The chestnut flavor is mild but it blends so nicely with the black tea.

      Great!! My favorite winter tea that I tried. I could (and probably will) drink through several ounces of this.

      Such a delicious winter tea! It has a definite hazelnut flavor, so if you like that you will enjoy this tea for sure.

      With some milk and sugar, this had an amazing taste of roasted chestnut. A little dry, but wonderfully festive and tasty.

    • 

      I did not like this one on its own merits. It smelled, and tasted, weird- kind of like dirt. It did get better with cherry whiskey added.

    • 

      The tea smells and tastes lovely! This tea's flavor is rich, warm and nutter! I've never had a real chestnut, but this is immediately recognizable as the seasonal flavor that it is. I added a bit of sugar and [almond]milk and really enjoyed this cozy treat!

      CommuniTea sample. Steeped 195F 3.5min. 2nd steep 200F 4min (the flavor was there, but noticeably weaker).

      Wonderful, earthy tea. Not bitter at all, and would be wonderful as a base to a blend with other flavors, but is great all by itself.

    • 

      Not sure what chestnuts are supposed to taste like but this is a good tea to have around for the fall and winter. Good cup to sip while watching Christmas movies by the fire.

    • 

      To be fair, I want to say upfront that I typically don't enjoy nut flavoring in my tea. I brewed at a lower temp to avoid bitterness, but it still tasted bitter to me. I am inclined to blame the chestnut flavor. If I try to ignore my personal preferences, I can say this is probably quite enjoyable for people who don't have the same aversion.

      Definitely an excellent coffee replacement! My coffee-loving husband gives it his seal of approval.

    • 

      It tastes a little artificial to me. The hazenut flavoring reminds me of almond extract

      black tea taste with a pinch of what can only be described as chestnut extract. Not my cup of tea, but I see how some people may like it.

    • 

      enjoyed the flavors of adagio chestnut tea - nice change

    • 

      Huge fan of their chestnut. Nutty in flavor, but not too much. Blends incredibly well also.

    • 

      I wasn't so sure about this, but I actually really enjoyed it. It's very nutty as you would except, and it makes for a nice tea during the Christmas season.

    • 

      I thought, I’m not sure about a chestnut tea. Then I had a sip. And then a cup. And the rest is history. This is delicious. Amazing for a fall or winter day, or any day really. Just try it already!

    • 

      Yes! Everyone in my family loves this tea. I gave it as Christmas presents one year too and got rave reviews from my friends.

      I wanted to like this tea more than I did. I think the smell of the chestnut was just too strong for my taste. Honey helped a little, but for me it was just a bit overpowering.

    • 

      Chestnut tea is what really got me hooked on Adagio. It is just sweet enough, with a rich flavor that appeals to me even though I am more often a coffee drinker. This is a perfect tea for a cool evening. I can’t recommend it enough!

    • 

      Perfect for a cool evening by the fire. I'm not a huge flavored tea drinker, but this one was particularly enjoyable. Add a little milk and sugar (or honey) or enjoy it plain, either way it's quite a nice treat.

    • 

      This is by far the best tea I have ever tasted. Perfect for the holidays and winter. Just the smell alone is intoxicating.

    • 

      I love using this in my blends. Great with almond milk and enjoyed hot.

    • 

      I actually really like this one cold with milk, but it's good any way you make it. It's got a surprisingly good amount of flavor, especially considering the simple ingredients.

    • 

      This is another favorite of mine from Adagio. This makes such a wonderful cup of tea, being both deliciously fragrant, as well as slightly sweet. This would be a great option for coffee drinkers.
