I’m a sucker for anything Sherlock Holmes, so when I saw this tea I had to have it! I bought 100g without thinking (I have A LOT of tea to get through right now), but fortunately it is wonderful! It’s deep and smoky and bold. I oversteeped because I got distracted, so it’s a touch on the bitter/strong side, but that actually works nicely with the flavours. I’m just adoring the smokiness of it! It reminds me of dusty books and pipe tobacco and vintage coats. Kind of what Holmes would smell like, I presume!

I live in Toronto, Canada, land of the fiercely intense, but short, summer, and absurdly long, equally fierce, cold autumn/winter/spring. Tea, coffee, soup, stew, chilli, mulled wine, and hot cider are staples here for a good part of the year.

Currently, I’m really digging plain black tea, chocolate and caramel accented black teas, and chais. I’m not into super grassy teas, but I like a good, smoky jasmine green. I’m told I should try some lapsang and pu’erh, which I intend to do, but I’m hella lazy. One of these days!

I live with one (very loud) Siamese cat, one (floppy-eared and goofy) Doberman Pinscher, and one (somewhat introverted and stoic) man who indulges me shamelessly. I’m pretty lucky. :)
