drank Autumn Chai by Custom-Adagio Teas
4833 tasting notes


This one has a prominent apple scent. Amid all the other spices in this blend, I was happily surprised to notice such a strong apple presence.

I’m not really all that crazy about Adagio when it comes to their flavored black teas. It’s just a very harsh and funky black tea … I think that Adagio should rethink this base … but I’ve thought that for a long time. I have mentioned though, at least once or twice, that when the flavored black teas are used in the custom blends like this one, the harshness seems to be less prevalent. I’m not sure why that is.

The spices here are warm and inviting. The cinnamon is the strongest flavor but it doesn’t overpower the ginger, clove and cardamom. There is a lovely caramel note to the cup, and then I taste apple and a hint of orange. It’s a really nice interpretation of an “Autumn Chai.”

I am obsessed with tea!

I am a co-founder of the SororiTEA Sisters:

I no longer write for the SororiTea Sisters but I am still the admin for the blog.


The reason I’m no longer writing for SororiTea Sisters is because I am now the Mad Tea Artist for 52Teas:


I’ll still be posting occasional reviews on teas here on Steepster, mostly backlogged reviews because I’m way behind on getting reviews posted. That’s why I’m keeping two accounts active at the current time – so that I can get those backlogged reviews posted.


My favorite teas are Yellow Teas with most Oolong teas at a close second. As far as “flavored” teas go, I love Earl Grey, Chocolate and Jasmine teas.

I also am intrigued by flavored teas with an unusual or unique flavor combination, which is why I was very excited to be the Mad Tea Artist of 52Teas!
