Tea Tuesday: Molly Hooper

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*

Molly Hooper

How 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 AangKataraZukoTophIroh 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 ;) ), John Watson, Mycroft Holmes, Greg Lestrade and Mrs. Hudson.

The Tea: This tea very flowery with a hint of cherry. It is similar to the Aang tea I reviewed since it has Chamomile and Dewy Cherry in it, but a bit more flower since this tea has Snowbud instead of the Earl Grey Lavender. The tea turns pink and it's light and sweet just like Molly. I think it perfectly reflects her gentle personality.

Serving Recommendations: I steeped this tea for three minutes and added sugar only.

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? I enjoyed this as much or possible even more than the Aang tea. Five stars!

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

  1. Ooh, this sounds like something I would really enjoy! Or maybe I should get it for my sister's birthday, since she's a huge Sherlock fan? Thanks for the idea! I love the review!
