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.
