I’ve noticed that this tea is leaving my cupboard at an alarming rate! I’ve had this one for about a week if I’m remembering correctly and it is already about halfway gone. I can’t quite pin what I like about it so much, but it really helps that it seems to be lower caffeine and I’ve been having lots of nighttime cuppas. The sweet, fruity notes are really fun and I’m a chamomile lover so the ingredients are just about perfect. One of the best blends on Adagio!

OMG DUDES Cara’s hobbity-type-beings-but-not-hobbits-especially-not-hobbits-from-that-book teas are back and they are ALL wearing sunglasses!
they are incognito!! cuz they aren’t Hobbits or Dwarves shhh.
also they have black censoring tape to take care of some editing. and the names of the teas have changed into ridiculous & simple caricatures. and the whole thing is just a little bit angsty and a ton playful and super great.
amazeballs. awesomesauce. boomerangs.
i completely love it so much i wanna puke.

i drank this tea. it’s chamomile and a little hibiscus. so i just brewed it and drank it and that was that.
sorry Molly, idk why everyone insists on portraying you as so kinda flat & dull. (but then again this tea was created during season 1 i think so it makes more sense with that in mind at least.)

OMGsrsly

Oh, that’s awesome! I’ll have to talk some locals into a fandom order. :)

OMGsrsly

TEA FOR TRAVELLERS! :D So awesome.

OH SWEET LORD, THE TOTALLY-NOTHING-TO-DO-WITH-THE-HOBBIT TEAS WITH THE SERIAL NUMBERS FILED OFF, THAT’S HILARIOUS.

I wonder how a series 3 Molly tea would differ from series 1 Molly. There would definitely need to be a shift in flavour profile.

moraiwe

Aaaaand I foresee another order in my almost immediate future!

OMGsrsly

Broken dreams and bitter disappointment, I think, Isaila. Could you imagine that dramatic action hero Sherlock actually meaning it? I can’t! But then, I’m a little cynical. :)

tea-sipper

Yeah this blend was before all the kissing & slapping. :D

Michelle was kind enough to send over a sample of this one when I bought some tea from her! Thank you! I was happy to see a Sherlock blend included because Sherlock is the best thing ever. January! Can’t wait! I have a feeling that in the new episode, it’s revealed that the trusty Molly had a lot to do with Sherlock’s faked death trickery. I was surprised to find today that this is one of the highest rated Adagio blends. I had to try it today! I waited for the water to cool a while and steeped for around three minutes. Honestly, I’m underwhelmed. I love the idea of this blend (chamomile, white tea, cherry) but it seems like this is more hibiscus than cherry. The chamomile and white tea don’t bring much to the table either. I have no idea why I’m not seeing why this is rated so highly here. Molly deserves a better blend!

I’ve been waiting for this for awhile.

Opening the bag, the smell is really sweet and strong, like a cherry-flavored cough drop or hard candy. It smells great.

The tea is a light pink color, and it’s delicately sweet. The cherry plays nicely with the appley flavor of the chamomile.

Made a big pot of this because Sherlock is finally back and I have been spending the past 2 years trying to convince some friends to watch it. The tea was excellent to have after all the rich food I consumed recently. I just wish I could steep it more than once. :(

Oh Molly, I know you’ll always be there for me. It’s been a loooooooooooooooooooong day and I really needed a soothing tea. I made this a little stronger than I normally do, two heaping tsp for about 8oz water. The cherry was leaning towards the medicinal side, but it was great for the mood I was in.

Woke up feeling terrible. If I didn’t already have my appendix removed I may have thought it was that. That’s the only other time I’ve had abdominal pain like that. But I managed to make it through the morning at work. I felt bad because I was in obvious pain. Customers kept trying to cheer me up though, it was sweet. Then I had a dentist appointment. After that I was forced to socialize with the dreaded brother-in-law and his baby momma. the horror. For surviving the encounter I treated myself to some new LUSH products! yay!

Light pink and delicious. It is a little hard to steep (steeps forever but be careful not to burn the leaves), but once you get it right it is wonderful. Very light, fruity, and comforting.

A Cara McGee Sherlock fandom blend, and the only white tea in the range. The leaf of this one is particularly pretty to look at, with the downy white Snowbud buds, the odd brown leaf, whole yellow chamomile flowers, red cherry pieces, and a scattering of burgundy hibiscus and rosehip. The dry leaf smells mildly fruity and a little herbal. I used 1.5 tsp of leaf for my cup, and gave it 2 minutes in water cooled to 175 degrees. The resulting liquor is a rather unusual grey, the scent sweet and primarily chamomile.

To taste, this somehow isn’t quite the blend I expected. The white tea is most prominent in the flavour, and it’s quite floral and a little dusty-tasting. It’s also quite drying on the palate. The chamomile emerges in the mid-sip, and adds a honey-like sweetness to the cup. It’s actually not a huge improvement, because it now tastes like sweet floral dust. The cherry emerges only towards the very end of the sip, and adds another layer of sweetness. I had hoped that the fruitiness would rescue this one, but it really just tips what was already a sweet tea into the “unbearably cloying” category. Sadly, there isn’t much in the way of cherry to be discerned, and the overall cup tastes mostly like warm sugar-water to me.

Sadly, this one is a disappointment to me. It comes as a surprise, because I’m usually a fan of white tea. I also know Adagio’s Dewy Cherry blend to be a wonderfully fruity concoction – sweet, yes, but with strong, natural tasting cherry to boot. For some reason, it just doesn’t work here. Perhaps the chamomile isn’t the best partner – it’s just too sweet when added to the already-sweet white base.

Although the taste of this blend isn’t for me, there are aspects of it that do suit Molly’s character. She’s sweet, for sure. Too sweet, maybe, when it comes to Sherlock. She’s also self-effacing and a little shy, and for those reasons I think a white tea blend is the right choice for her. I even like the idea of chamomile/cherry, but perhaps not in combination. One or the other probably would have been enough, perhaps with a touch more hibiscus to cut through the sweetness just a little bit.

I’m sad about this one. It’s not undrinkable by any means, but it is ridiculously sweet and fairly one-note, and I don’t feel the flavours work very well together. In theory, a great blend to characterise Molly. In practice, not so much.

I’ve heard so many good things about this show. I really need to start watching it!

This was a pleasant surprise in the SHERLOCK sampler set I got from Adagio – I was expecting a very fruity blend when I saw the cherry in there, but it was much more of a floral flavor, with slight cherry taste and was my favorite blend to drink before bed (until it ran out).

Today this tastes completely different than when I first had it- probably because I steeped it in boiling water this time instead of 170F/76C.

I don’t taste the cherry and cucumber so much, and instead taste blackberry leaves, black currant, and hibiscus notes. It’s nice after a few hours in the hot sun. It’s only six o’clock and I may pass out..
