I love chestnuts, and I could imagine them going well with black tea, so I was eager to try this one.

The aroma is very strong, a sort of caramelly, nutty quality. Although it's very nutty, it doesn't taste at all like chestnuts to me. It taste more like pecans than anything else...a buttery sort of pecan flavor, like butter pecan ice cream or pecan pie. This tea has a dessert sort of feel to it, even when no sugar or milk were added. With milk and sugar I think it would become even more dessert-like.

The base tea is moderately strong, a classic black tea that holds its own against the flavoring, but does not overpower. Full-bodied.

Good, but I find this tea is misnamed...I think it would be more accurate to call it "Pecan Pie" or "Butter Pecan"...it doesn't really taste like chestnut to me.

I can imagine some people really loving this, it wasn't really my style though. I prefer Adagio's pure teas. And I'd rather this tea taste more like actual chestnut and have less of the general caramel nutty flavor.
