Thursday Special: Sherlock Teas by Cara McGee

Adagio1

If you’re reading this blog, there’s a good chance you’ve heard of Cara McGee and her incredible fandom-inspired tea blends.

If not, here’s a quick rundown as I understand it. For a while now, loose-leaf tea company Adagio has given tea drinkers the option of creating their own blends with different teas and flavors, and Adagio would offer those blends for sale to other customers with similar taste.

Enter Cara McGee, a talented and creative artist who started making blends based on the shows she loved. Suddenly, a small niche on the Adagio Tea website turned into a massive fandom trend, particularly for fans of the BBC’s Sherlock series.

I’m here to tell you that if you haven’t become a part of this trend, you’re missing out. Cara doesn’t just slap tea flavors together for the sake of making something; her delicious blends actually reflect the personalities of the characters she’s representing.

For instance, Sherlock Holmes Tea tastes like drinking a bonfire, while John Watson Tea, my personal favorite, has a delightfully traditional base with a hint of the exotic.

I have yet to try a blend I haven’t enjoyed, and Cara offers something for everyone, from fruity herbal blends to strongly smoky offerings. In addition, the packaging of each blend features Cara’s beautiful original artwork.

Tea is the perfect accompaniment to an afternoon spent reading the Sherlock Holmes canon. Tea inspired by the detective himself is the icing on the cake.
