Tea Review: Sherlock Blend


sherlock blend

created by: Cara McGee

All at once exotic and mysterious and perhaps a little bit insane, with a lingering hint of smoke.

Inspired by BBC’s Sherlock, which I am in no way affiliated with. This is created purely for my own enjoyment.

My Review
The smokiness is the first thing you notice when you open the bag, thanks to the Lapsang Souchong. You can detect the Oriental Spice in there, riding noticeably underneath like a current. Still, it’s a very smooth, eloquent blend.
The golden-coppery color of the Lapsang when brewed fuses beautifully with the burgundy-red of the assam melody to make a burnt copper color kind of like ochre in your cup (well, in my white cup, anyway.) I know it seems weird, but the smokiness of the Lapsang really gives this blend some heft and strength without any bitterness. If you don’t like strong black teas then this most likely isn’t for you…. but it’s delicious! If you’re a coffee drinker like I am, then you will probably enjoy this blend a great deal.
I gave this tea 5 out of 5 stars. You can purchase it here.
