Tea Tuesday: John Watson

I'm not really a coffee person. I prefer tea, and I know a lot of fellow writers love tea, too. But have you ever wanted to break out of the Early Grey or English Breakfast norm and try something new? Well, let me help you find some cool new teas! If you need a little hot and flavorful boost to help you reach your writing goal or you're just a lover of tea or you'd like to try some tea but aren't fond of the stereotypical types, these Tea Tuesday posts are for you.

This weeks tea is ...

*drum roll*

John Watson

Ho,w I found it: I found this tea on the Adagio tea website while browsing through their many fandom blends. This is same tea company I got the AangKataraZukoToph ,Iroh and Cactus Juice blends. They have so many spectacular teas! I stumbled upon BBC Sherlock teas, and I had to get them! The set also includes: Sherlock Holmes (of course ;) ), Mycroft Holmes, Molly Hooper, Greg Lestrade and Mrs. Hudson.

The Tea: I can certainly see John Watson drink this tea in the morning. As you drink it, the tea starts with an earl grey from the Earl Grey Green and an Irish Breakfast flavor with the hint of cinnamon and then ends with a green taste. It's a calming tea. It fits his fickle but loyal as a lapdog personality that doesn't take any crap from Sherlock. I bet Watson would drink this when Sherlock is getting on his nerves too much.

Watson's irritated face. XD
Serving Recommendations: I steeped it for four minutes and just added sugar because of the green tea.

How much is it and where can you get it? You can find this tea at the Adagio website. I bought this tea in a sample set which was about $22 including shipping and you get a goodly amount of tea since you only need about a teaspoon per cup.

So how good is it? This is a delightful tea. Though not one I'd drink regularly due to the unique flavor, I'll definitely drink it when the next season ... finally ... ever ... comes out ....

Have you tried this tea? What did you think of it? Have you seen Sherlock? Who's your favorite character?
