My new favorite chocolate tea! I've been looking for the perfect chocolate tea and this might be it--nutty and warm with just enough caffeine to start my day
Very tasteful tea to drink in winter
Gave this tea to my niece who loved it
Hazelnut Truffle is our long time favorite after dinner tea when we a dessert-type tea. Nutty and chocolate with just the perfect amount of sweetness. Good with a piece of cinnamon stick added to the tea mixture before brewing. A must have in my pantry.
A nice flavour, but a bit sweet
Hazelnut Truffle has a nice nutty flavor and is a nice accompaniment to oatmeal in the morning or just for sipping in the afternoon.
Delicious. Great at any time of the day or evening...for breakfast or desert in the evening
I've been ordering this one since I first found Tea Forte. This is one that I keep stocked at all times.
love it. Too bad it does not come in a pyramid.
Tastes like dessert! Wonderful!
I can't start my morning without Tea Forte Hazelnut Truffle. The flavors all meld together for a very satisfying cup of tea. I use 2 teaspoons instead of 1 as I prefer a stronger flavor, and I steep for a full 5 minutes. No sugar or milk are necessary as it is so full bodied that I feel it would ruin or hide the true nature of the flavor. This is a winner!
The hazelnut is really strong tasting... almost artificial. Helps wake you up though.
I didn't really like this tea at first, but when I drank a second cup it wasn't all that bad. It was an acquired taste for me.
This tea is my favorite. I drink it in my classroom and my students all ask "why does it smell like choclate?" It tastes delicious, a real treat.
Has a really bad odor like alcohol. I don't drink it cause of that
This is my all-time favorite tea. The flavor is smooth and amazing. The joy of chocolate without all the fat and sugar.
This sweet tea is light, smooth and refreshing without any bitterness. One of my favorites!
Absolutely delicious! Like sipping a candy bar!
I have a sensitive nose, and I do not like the way this tea smells. To drink it I have to remember not to breathe it in. And well, I enjoy breathing in the steam of my tea. So this is not one I will be ordering again. I love the chai, and the earl grey for reference. I am going to try black currant.
I enjoyed it... once I added two spoons of sugar. It was really tasty. I could taste the dark chocolate AND the hazelnut! A satisfying cup, indeed.
This tea has a rich creamy flavor that is perfect for a cold rainy day.
This is one of the blander pyramid teas bags. I tolerate it when it's part of a collection, but would rather have a different flavor.
So, so good! Definitely my favorite. You won't be disappointed.
This tea does not taste like dark chocolate or hazelnut at all. It isn't a bad tea, I was just expecting something different.
I got this tea in my Warming Joy Holiday Collection and it is DELICIOUS! I ran out of milk so I used Hazelnut Creamer and it just brought out so much more flavor. My new holiday favorite to sip while I enjoy this winter weather. A must try!
My daughter, who knows I love tea, bought a box for me to drink when I stay with her. Now I am buying some to have at my own home. It is delicious!
Definitely a new favorite for me - possibly even surpassing the perfect Black Currant! I tried this one right away and was not disappointed. I tend to like a sweeter tea or a more traditional tea (i.e. the Tea Forte English Breakfast), and am not so much into the Green and White teas, so this new flavor is ideal for me. The hazelnut is mild in case you are not a fan, and the chocolate overtones are heavenly. Must....go...order....more....!
I love the dolce vita teas and I'm so happy that Tea Forte added another delicious dessert-like tea. It has all the flavor of a sweet treat without the guilty calories. Totally addicted.
I love the aroma, the flavor... how can you beat chocolate, coconut and hazelnut. I don't need to add a lot to the cup - but it would last longer if I didn't drink it every day!
