35 Tasting Notes
Okay, this is a tricky tea in my opinion. It’s really easy to over steep and if you’re not one for strong smokey teas, then it really can be like a punch in the face. It honestly does smell like a musty campfire in the bag and it pretty much still does after steeping. It’s great plain if you like that sort of thing, but I like it best with milk and sugar because it helps tone down the lapsang souchong and bring out the assam melody and the oriental spice.
It’s a bit of a mystery and I think it’s very fitting for Sherlock. An excellent tea if you can figure out how to brew it to your liking.
This is a very comforting cup of tea. I usually take it with a bit of cream to bring out the vanilla, although it’s perfectly delicious plain. It also fits the movie perfectly and it’s great to drink while watching it (because you really do need a warm and cozy tea to make it through that movie). I usually steep to taste, because it is a fairly light tea and while I don’t want to over-steep it, I still want to be able to taste all the flavors.
This is definitely one of my favorite blends by Cara and I love it any time of the day.
