Sherlock/John and tea

Where I'll Be When... and Tea

* Tremendous thanks to those of you who have checked out my new short film "Forgotten Rebellion." I really appreciate it!

* I'm continuing my exploration of the Sherlock Holmes-themed blends at Adagio teas. I'll admit that I don't have the most sophisticated palate for tea in the world (I'm more of a coffee snob by nature and experience), but in case you're interested, my amateur "reviews" of four of the blends (Watson, Lestrade, The Mind and the Heart, and Sherlock's Eyes) are below the cut.
