A friend who knows my love for tea & for all things BBC brought me a bit of this to try (her college-aged daughters brought it home). Since it was labelless, I’m guessing this is the correct blend—-Adagio sports eleven signature blends with “Sherlock” in the title.

I am not a lapsang souchong fan, generally; however, the assam (any tea with assam gets a partial positive rating) and spices soften the smoke enough that it’s enjoyable on an afternoon when the building AC is cranked to “igloo.”

Wouldn’t pick it out on my own, but was fun to try.

Somebody asked me once when I became a tea junkie; I think it dates back to college when I needed caffeine for a 7 a.m. class but chose not to do coffee. My favorite teapot is a medium-sized Brown Betty given to me by my Mema; the painted flowers are chipping off, but the size and feel is perfect. I rejoice when I get a morning to brew a pot of loose tea starting with a kettle; not a bag and a hot pot.
