When I first heard of the title for this tea, I thought, “No way, is that a Sherlock reference? I must have it if it is..” Of course, it is, however I’ll refrain from sharing any spoilers as to why this is so awesome. ;)

This tastes as I would expect it to, considering the character it’s modeled after: soft ginger cookies with a hint of molasses, some clove and cinnamon, a touch of black tea, and then… oh yeah!… more ginger. It’s complex and ginger-y, and while I really do love it, I may be okay with having just this sample from Cavocorax for now. Thank you again for sharing with me your precious Adagio order! (I mean that truly, kindly… it’s hard to get Adagio here in Canada for a decent price due to the ridiculous shipping costs).

Flavors: Cloves

Preparation
200 °F / 93 °C 2 min, 0 sec 2 tsp 12 OZ / 354 ML

For reals. I love adagio, but their shipping makes me want to weep.

Bio

Teaholic! Currently loving flavored blacks, greens, whites, green rooibos blends, straight blacks and greens, and have a long-standing adoration for herbals/medicinals. Dessert teas top my list along with anything cocoa-y.

I own an obscene amount of tea, and am always happy to share. Having said that, I’m traveling indefinitely (currently in Ireland) so my stash will sit and wait for me, as I send back tea to explore more when I get home again.

In addition to loving tea, I’m a dating columnist, single mom, nerd, and avid knitter. I read way too much, type even more, and spend my ‘free’ time either running, swinging kettlebells, or hanging with friends.

Allergies: Strawberries and all grains. I’m having a mild allergic reaction to both lavender and some roses in tea, and thus I’m avoiding these for now as well. I also avoid sugar and Splenda where possible.
