Rooibos Nutcracker @adagioteas #teaadventcalendar #adventcalendar2021

Today’s tea from my Tea Advent Calendar is Rooibos Nutcracker.

The tea contains rooibos tea, apple pieces, cocoa nibs, natural caramel flavor, marigold flowers, natural hazelnut flavor, blue cornflowers, and natural chestnut flavor. It sounds like it will be a really good tea. When I opened the packet, I could smell the caramel and hazelnut, and it smelled really good.

I steeped it for 5 minutes in 8 ounces of 212ºF hot water.

Unsweetened, it wasn’t terrible. The caramel flavor was nice, just a hint of sweetness, but I could also taste a grassiness that I didn’t care for. I added almond milk and sugar, and it tasted much better. I could more clearly taste the hazelnut and chestnut flavors, which made it very warm and hearty. However, I could also still taste the grassiness, which I didn’t much care for. Overall, it’s not a bad holiday tea flavor, but I personally didn’t love it.
