Tea Review: Watson Blend

created by: Cara McGee
Queen and Country traditionalist, but still recounting his days in Afghanistan drinking green tea, John Watson prefers his tea with a bit of cream, no sugar, and just a little warm from a touch of cinnamon.

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

ingredients:

My Review

When first opening the bag, the smell of cinnamon is quite strong, with layers of the earl grey green running through. I brewed my first cup for 5 minutes, and opted for it plain (again, I take my teas strongly.) Upon initial tasting, I was pretty sure this would be phenomenal with a little milk since I do often favor the bolder Irish Breakfast tea with milk. I like the substantial, warm feel of this tea, which has a fairly smooth flavor with only a little bit of a spicy, florally bite at the end, thanks to the cinnamon and earl grey.
I brewed a second cup to go with the second half of the soccer game, this time adding a splash of milk and a tiny bit of sugar. The additions made the tea that much more smooth in the mouth, and the cinnamon and earl grey notes are still marvelously present.

I give this tea 4 out of 5 stars. You can get it here.

Additional note: It’s been about a week since this initial review. This blend has really grown on me when I make it with a healthy dose of milk and sugar. It is excellent like this.
