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.

This tea contains a high level of caffeine | Steep at 100°C for 3 minutes.

I normally hate anything with Earl Grey as an ingredient, but this tea is different. The mix mellows the the Earl Grey into a hint. I love it.
Meagan Thompson
I love the mix of bergamot, cinnamon, and green tea, and the whole blend is a great embodiment of John's personality (huuuge Sherlock fan here). This is perfect with a few splashes of milk. I think this tea is too bitter at 212° for 3 minutes, so I've lowered the time and temp for my perfect cup. (2 mins @ 195°C)

I'm a casual tea drinker and thought this was great. :) My parents drink a lot more tea & they loved it too. My mom even said she wants to order some herself. XD Smells great, tastes great. Wonderful blend.
Aja Moore
Can a tea taste like how it feels like to put on a warm sweater? If so, this is that tea. It's a nice comforting tea that makes you want to snuggle in. My only critique, is that I wish there was more cinnamon taste, because I could barely taste it. Definitely not a tea for every morning, but for the mornings you need a little comfort. (3 mins @ 212°C)

Ah, the Watson blend. If I close my eyes, I can imagine Watson himself tucked into a chair with a newspaper and a cup of this tea. It's a solid blend, and represents the character well.
