Why Sherlock Holmes Tea?
Make yourself a cup, sit back and read on…
Did you know that the great consulting detective was a terrific fan of tea? Throughout the stories, Sherlock would often have tea brought to his Chambers to help him focus and crack the case. So our Founder, Dan, decided it would be fitting to create a tea in his name.
The obvious first question was what type of tea blend would be apt for Mr Sherlock Holmes?
As an English icon, the natural place to begin our creation is our English Breakfast Gold. This is a sophisticated breakfast tea, fine and elegant.
Sherlock was of course famously a pipe smoker. So we chose to blend this stellar Breakfast Tea with a pinch of a smoky black tea from China called Lapsang Souchong. We had the foundation in place!
Next, we looked to pay homage to his extraordinary mind. After some research (we hope Sherlock would have been proud), we discovered a small number of herbs and flowers that are known to improve memory and boost concentration. Progress!
Dan experimented with these, finding that Ginkgo and Elderflower Blossom complemented the tea perfectly.
Our blend was ready!
We cannot promise that 3 cups each day will make you as clever as Sherlock, but we can promise a refined, smooth tea with a surprisingly gentle and clean finish.
Would our little creation have been his favourite? In the words of the man himself ~ “Improbable but true!”
