Hazelnut. . .Chocolate. . .Yerba Mate. . . Mocha Nut Mate from Adagio Teas

Okay, full disclosure here, I was really hesitant about this blend. I am not a fan of mocha/coffee flavor at all. I switched from coffee to tea a long time ago and don’t really like tea that tastes like coffee. However, the smell of the dry leaf was enticing me because I could smell the hazelnut and chocolate and it smelled delicious. I’ve never had mate before and I hear its loaded with caffeine, so if you are looking for an energy boost this just may be a great tea for you. The steeped liquid looked as dark as coffee Read More

Using Heavenly Hazelnut from BlendBee to Create A Nutella like Latte!

Back when I was in grad school, I worked as a nanny. And among the many, many things I adored about the wonderful family I worked for, near the top of the list was the CONSTANT supply of Nutella they always had in their cabinet. You guys? I was obsessed. So as soon as I took one whiff of this tea from Blend Bee, I was instantly transported back to the tablespoon I’d smear in my oatmeal every morning, or lick off the knife after I was done making a treat for the little ones. This tea is one hundred Read More

Chocolate Hazelnut Dessert Tea from Plum Deluxe

  Chocolate Hazelnut Dessert Tea from Plum Deluxe was one of my samples that I received a month or two ago. I am not a huge chocolate or hazelnut fan to begin with. Mix that with honeybush (which I love or hate) and that tea is bound to hang out in my tea stash for a while. That is a tragedy and shame on me when it comes to this tea. This tea has me rethinking my whole thought process when it comes to this combo. I could even see stocking this tea in my cabinet for that sweet treat Read More

Mandarin Doce et Noisette from Fauchon

Tea Information: Leaf Type:  Black Where to Buy: Fauchon Tea Description: Fruity tea with zesty sweet mandarin and warm hazelnut flavours. Learn more about this tea here. Taster’s Review: The smell of these tea leaves is amazing! I want a candle made from this fragrance.  This tea is a black tea with mandarin orange and hazelnut flavoring.  I swear there is also dark chocolate in there somewhere but I’m not seeing it on the ingredient list.  I hope this tea smells as good as it smells. I brewed this up like a black tea (212F-3 min) and sat and inhaled the wonderful Read More
