Oh wow. Bought this for the fandom reference, obviously. I am not a fan of lapsang souchong, to be honest. It’s a bit strong for me. So when I opened this and it was a spiced lapsang souchong, I knew I was not going to love this blend, as much as I adore Mr. Holmes. I wasn’t sure how I was going to even USE this tea for a while. Then, on a whim, I mixed it with a package of hot cocoa mix. And it was delicious. Not drinkable alone for me, because its flavor profile is just not my cuppa. However, with the hot cocoa mix, I love it.
