This is BUTTERSCOTCH. The scent and flavor are both so strong, and I’ve really been enjoying it. Not any nuance, and no surprises while drinking this one-just a cupful of warm butterscotch.

Gently smoky gunpowder combined with bright tangy apples and rose hips, bring to mind a misty morning stroll. Hints of cinnamon and creme brulee flavor warm and comfort you like a favorite sweater.

I got this tea form Izzy, thank you!
I was too lazy this morning so I used all the tea she sent me and prepared it grandpa moreover. So about 7 grams per my fav 300 ml of water. I used as well bit warmer water than she suggested, I think it could be around 85-88°C, as it was not boiling and it was cooled down a bit already (as other family members preapred coffee few minutes earlier).
I knew it will brew strong, but I again felt I kinda need it. I slept much better than last days, but still, it is not great. I usually wake up around 5 am, playing with my mobile afterwards as I am bored, then I feel asleep again and real waking up is around 8-9 am.
The tea, well, I think it is good if you are craving for something creamy and sweet as well. Because it has got both of those characteristics. It is indeed quite sweet (maybe too much for me) and as well creamy. As apple was floating on top of the cup, it was apple flavoured quite heavily as well. But base tea is certainly there too, and naturally it becames stronger with longer steeping. In the end it was rather vegetal than fruity, maybe hints of kale or similar vegetables.
Would I like to try it again? To be honest, I am not really sure. It was sweet and creamy, that’s okay, but the taste don’t suit me well. It is something what I can’t really explain, maybe it is just because of grandpa steeping and my heavy hand with leaves.
Flavors: Apple, Creamy, Kale, Sweet, Vegetal
This was a great start to the growing mountain of autumnal teas I have in my cupboard. I’m usually put off by flavourings instead of natural ingredients, but this creme brulee flavouring completely won me over. It just smells so damn good.
Dry, it reminds me of cream, caramel, Bailey’s Irish cream liqueur, sweet stewed apple and a little tartness that reminds me of cranberry (after reading the ingredients I can see this is actually rosehip).
It was agony waiting for my water temperature to drop to 82C. Worth it though. The brewed tea had an aroma of Bailey’s again, cream, and sweet caramel, losing those more down-to-earth apple and tart berry aromas.
The flavour, thankfully, was not as sickly sweet as the wet aroma suggested – for which I am very grateful. I tend to get sick of overly sweet teas very quickly and can rarely finish a whole cup. But this was perfect.
Having consumed a vast amount of marigold tea earlier this year I picked out the familiar mellow note in the tea body almost instantly, along with the distinct gunpowder green tea. I didn’t detect any of the smokiness that other Steepster tasting notes talk about, instead I found a burnt sugar note, just like the crispy top of freshly made creme brulee that my father used to make. He used a blow torch to melt the sugar like that. It’s a miracle we’ve never had a house fire. I digress. The tea is smooth and light overall, with dancing apple and caramel notes playing over my tongue.
It’s VERY easy to drink and the sweet flavours linger for a little while after each sip.

I was first introduced to this blend as “Autumn Apple Crisp” from Spice and Tea Exchange, which I picked up as an autumn seasonal in 2016, but the tea did not return the next year. Searching the ingredients, I then discovered Adagio’s autumn seasonal “Autumn Mist,” which was the exact same blend of ingredients, and not nearly such a price-gouge as Spice and Tea Exchange’s teas.The first time I made this tea (the “Autumn Apple Crisp” version of the blend) I made a cup at work, and the scent was so strong that my coworkers walked into the office and thought they were smelling maple or apple pie, not realizing it was just my cup of tea! It had a very strong, carmelly scent from the creme brulee flavoring, and a nice carmelly apple flavor with a lot of natural sweetness. I remember thinking how much it really did remind me of caramel-covered apples!
Revisiting this tea with the “Autumn Mist” version of the blend, I’m noticing a lot more of the gunpowder green tea than I remember from before. The tea has a very distinct, slightly smoky flavor from the base, and isn’t quite as sweet as I recall. There is still a nice touch of apple on the back of the tongue, and some sweet caramel notes, but the overall flavor is a little more full and less dessert-like than I was expecting.
I kind of miss the old “Autumn Apple Crisp” version now. Ah well. This one is good enough to scratch the itch, I just wish it were a little more sweet with stronger caramel notes!
Flavors: Apple, Caramel, Smoke
So I made a big Adagio order back in December when I initially decided to get back into tea and, of course, shortly after I ordered from other vendors and now I don’t touch this stuff. I had a few portions that I’d separated out into baggies to take to work and they’ve just been sitting here, and this one has been making my drawer smell sweet for too long, so it’s time to drink these, but not without having some fun with it. All I really use at work is the gaiwan, so let’s give it a shot in that!
So, this tea has bits and pieces of stuff in it and smells very sweet. I’ve recently confirmed that I am definitely more partial to Japanese greens than Chinese, so the base of this tea is less on my preferred side but not bad. I let some of the leaves and stems from my kabusecha earlier stay in the gaiwan when I dumped it, because why not?
The liquor is fairly golden and smells…sweet. The added flavoring is very obvious. The taste is sweet and floral, which makes sense since it has flowers in it. I do a couple steeps of this but, eh, I don’t really feel the need to force myself to steep it much more. Fortunately some folks around me like this blend, so it won’t be going to waste.
Flavors: Artificial, Floral, Sweet
