The way this tea smells in the bag is woody, with a lingering of sweetness. There is also a smokiness that reminds me of a fireplace or the way the air smells after firing a gun. The taste is incredibly unique. The first flavor I noticed was a slightly sour cherry taste that blended smoothly with the smoky, woody flavors I expected.

I think it perfectly captures this character… Maybe I should rewatch ‘A Scandal in Belgravia’

yay
i love my sherlock blends!!
and though i’ll probably never order irene, i’m super glad to know that it is an accurate and delicious tea she’s been given.
(the sherlock one is easily one of my favorites. and i’m also a lapsang fan.)

Why won’t your ever order this one? Which other Sherlock ones are good? None of them really jumped out at me (except for this one)

Shmiracles

well i like the Sherlock one (lapsang souchong, assam melody, oriental spice) A LOT A LOT. and my sister is a huge fan of the Watson (irish breakfast, cinnamon, earl grey green). I also have Reichenbach Recovery and The Mind & The Heart. and they are nice but i can’t really recall them now so lets say they don’t really make a lasting impression and leave it at that.
now that i look at it I probably would consider getting this Irene tea. because my absolutely favorite lapsang blend is Smaug also created by Cara McGee and it has lapsang souchong, candy cane, and ginger x2 in it. which sounds like it would never work but my goodness i’ll probably never meet another cup like it. a bold lapsang blend is very appealing to me.
i’ll add The Woman to my list to buy right now.

(i just don’t like any versions of her character is all)

Haha not liking the character is a pretty good reason. Is the cinnamon in the Watson blend very strong? How about the oriental spice in Sherlock? Those are two things that I don’t really love in large amounts which is why I didn’t order them, but if they are subtle I may have to make another order lol.

I drink A LOT of tea. I like greens and oolongs best, but I pretty much just love it all.

I’m 95% sure that I am allergic to mint so I completely avoid any tea with mint of any kind.

Besides drinking tea, I love to travel, make/look at maps, spend time outside, crochet, and watch tv (Doctor Who, Walking Dead, Parks and Recreation, Breaking Bad, Firefly, Sherlock, Game of Thrones + much more).

I also have a beautiful Shiba Inu named Sencha.
