Sherlock Blend

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

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

I forgot how smoky this tea is, but it's very good!
Sunshine Hall
I liked it, but my mom said it reminded her of medicine.
Julie Hinkle
I really like this blend and will probably buy a bigger amount next go around!
Janet Lynch
Not sure what I was expecting but this is just ok, not keen on it. Will finish tin but won t order again. John Watson blend is awesome, thought this would be too.
Fred Jonas
I couldn't decide between two stars ('Bad') and three stars ('OK'). I had very high hopes for this tea. Many people who rated it said it was very strong, which I took to mean it was heavily weighted with lapsang souchong, which is my favorite tea. Nope. It's a very modified takeoff on lapsang souchong, and the other additives (spices, etc) very much water down the lapsang souchong. I'ts too sweet. It's not a 'bad' tea. It's just not what I wanted. It's overdone and too gimmicky. I wonder if I'll experience the same distracting circus with Cara McGee's other teas that I decided to try. Well, time has passed. I've had a cold. Perhaps my taste is now affected. Now, the Sherlock blend tastes like lapsang souchong. Which is great, except it's a much more expensive way just to get lapsang souchong.
