Ingredients & Lore
blended with black tea & natural chestnut flavor
The chestnut has been a staple food in southern Europe, Turkey, and Asia for millennia, largely replacing cereals where they would not grow in mountainous areas. They are a beloved treat during the holidays here in America (thanks to a certain Christmas carol). In France, the marron glace - a candied chestnut involving 16 different processes (in typical French cooking style) - is served at Christmas and New Year's time. They are also always served in celebration of the New Year in Japan. There, chestnuts are said to represent both success and hard times, as well as mastery and strength.

Is this tea safe for someone who has a chestnut allergy? A relative of mine was curious about it, but I'm not sure what to tell her.

Who else wants decaf chestnut tea? This is a dessert tea that I so wish I could drink at night.
