This tea is nutty goodness! The aroma is nutty, malty, and just slightly burnt. Luckily the burnt aroma fades with brewing and the aroma becomes much richer.

The taste is delicious, very evocative of the cold night curled up in front of a fire munching on chestnuts. Subtle sweetness mixed with roasted nuttiness for a delicious blend

I really like this tea. It has a buttery pecan like flavor and aroma. I think it was a very sweet taste - so a very good dessert tea. No bitterness at all.

I had this with soy and german rock sugar.

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 (smothered in butter and warm syrup, of course). Notice how none of those say “chestnut”? That's because I've never had a chestnut, so I can't say whether or not this type of tea lives up to its name.

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 of the chestnut flavor 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.

This tea is really good! It has this malty flavor that I love. It's strong and not too bitter. I think it would appeal to people who usually prefer coffee, but want to try something different. I added cream and sugar.

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.
