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

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.

It tates exactly how you imagine the aroma in Sherlock's study to be-- smokey, spicy, and tabacco accent!
This tea is so smokey and i love it. I think I ll add milk next time, to make it more hearty.

Friends don t let friends drink boring tea. Friends give samplers and get you hooked on the great stuff. I could have sworn I was handing the deerstalker to Sher... this tea puts me there in my Mind Palace.

I'm surprised at how much I enjoyed this. You would think that a tea that smells like a bonfire would taste like a bonfire, but it doesn't. It does keep a bit of the smokiness, but that only enhances the flavor. This is a savory tea, but it still pairs well with milk and sugar. I feel like this is a great breakfast tea to drink in the morning paired with eggs and bacon.
