I have to admit that I am a huge Tumblr and Sherlock fan. I’ve been wanting to try some of these blends for a very long time. This was the only Sherlock specific tea I ordered at the moment; but I do plan on more in the future. I have to say the first thing that I thought when I opened this was “mmm manly!”
This first cup will be without milk/sugar as I usually take my tea. This brews up far darker than I would have at first expected. The first sip of this was very interesting! The nut aspects are totally there. It has a certain smokey-ness to it that was pretty enjoyable. I think that this is a pretty nice blend. I think something about it screams “wake up blend.” I think that this tea is much more strong than ones I normally choose for myself, but nevertheless it is excellent. I think that this is a perfect “character tea.”
I must admit that these Adagio teas are very excellent for the price/amount. I am very pleased with the quality of flavor I’m getting from these. I’m going to be trying this tea with milk/sugar tomorrow just for reference.
