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.

Popular with the whole fam, this is a great black tea with a twist. If we hadn’t already fallen in love with Cullen and acouple of other quirky black teas we would def have gotten a bigger size of this. Of note, the smokeyness isn’t particularly noticeable when this tea is hot, but when it’s cold it becomes the overwhelming flavor. Great blend, this really is Sherlock in a cup.

This is a locked room, serial killer, and a 9 on the Sherlockian scale of cases/teas worth investigating. Don't let the smokiness put you off - there is surprising depth and heart and even a bit of sweetness to this blend. (Hmm. Who does THAT sound like?) Mixes quite nicely with a teaspoon (or vice versa) of the John Watson blend (well, DUH). Well done, Cara. (4 mins @ 212°C)

This is a tea to make up for all those times you ended up with a cup of weak brown water instead of the strong black tea you wanted. If the feeling of drinking liquid smoke is too much, a bit of milk tones it down a bit. It's curious, I first had the sampler size of this and the smokiness was not as strong as my new 3 oz bag (I still really like it, but it's just...very strong).

This is an excellent tea blend! It is great for helping me wake up in the morning. This tea blend also helps me whenever I need to start studying. I highly recommend this blend to anyone who likes a nice aromatic and smoky tea. Update: This was the perfect thing for helping me recover from my wisdom teeth surgery. (3 mins @ 212°C)

It’s not bad, I mostly get the lapsang souchong (which I enjoy) and Assam melody flavor but it’s kind of a filtered down . Not sure if it’s how I steeped it, or if it could just be the batch that I got. I just don’t really taste any flavors from the oriental spice.
