Re: Sherlock Tea

Oh, my, what a wonderful website, and an artisnal tea company--perfect.

I'll take the "Watson", please.

How about a thread devoted to tea?

My favorite is Earl Grey, steeped for exactly 5 minutes, but it must be from London. My 8-year-old son and I drink it sweetened with honey. Makes for a great bonding time for us--one of the simple yet profound pleasures of life.

Re: Sherlock Tea

I drink PG tips like most people drink coffee here. My mother once tried it and gagged and spit because it was so strong, so now I call it my industrial strength tea. I love Earl Grey too but it's hard to get good stuff. I dislike Twinnings because they package each tea bag individually, although sometimes they're the only way to go.

I'm almost thinking about buying Sherlock right now. I love Lapsang Souchong, although my mother thinks it smells like bacon. Every time I make it she walks into the kitchen half asleep and says "Since when do we have bacon in the house?" XD

Re: Sherlock Tea

Sadly, we do actually have a thread devoted to tea. Yes really! If you go to the Other topics in The Diogenes Club you will see a thread from Jim Moriarty (appropriately) all about it. Just had a cuppa myself!

Re: Sherlock Tea

Sadly? Is that testimony to the fact that we'll discuss absolutely anything, or that more people are unaware that such a delightful thread already exists? : )

Going there now...

Re: Sherlock Tea

Probably more the former! But also a sprinkle of the latter! Lol

Re: Sherlock Tea

Oh, they're looking very good. Would be hard choose between Sherlock and Heart and Mind though.

Re: Sherlock Tea

My aunt is flying to London today, and has promised to bring me back lots of Earl Grey. I can hardly contain my excitement! I've yet to find tea here in the States that compares to the tea from London. Yippee!

Re: Sherlock Tea

You mean you have to live in the States without Earl Grey?
I don't drink tea very often, but when I do, that is my choice.
What did the Boston tea party achieve?!

Re: Sherlock Tea

Oh, we have Earl Grey, and even companies like Twinings that claim to be from London, but it's not the same. Every time I get tea straight from "The Motherland", it is so much fresher and more fragrant. I don't know what the difference is, but it's clearly different.

As for the tea party, well, let's just let bygones be bygones, shall we?

Re: Sherlock Tea

Earl Grey is my favourite special tea. The Earl had good taste!

Re: Sherlock Tea

Hmm it looks like your site ate my first comment (it was super long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I had written and say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your phorum. I too am an aspiring phorum phorumger but I'm still new to the whole thing. Do you have any points for rookie phorum writers? I'd definitely appreciate it. Wish you luck!

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Sherlock Tea

Of course, for the proper Sherlock tea, one neccessary ingredient must be added after tea is brewed:
