Grandmere wants to hear about Sherlock and John's adventures. Which ACD adaptation should they relate to her?

Can I actually get away with having John refer - in his head, not out loud - to her as Not Anthea?

Dear Suffolk, are you sure you're still there? The USPS lady I spoke with yesterday, in all her seventeen years working there, hadn't heard of you. I assured her I had.

Everyone cross your fingers and hope that lemons 21, 22, 23, 31 and 32 arrive in time to be taken to London! On a related note, really Fedex? You seriously want $120 to send my $5 worth of plastic lemons across the pond? You must think I'm completely insane. I'm not.

I am assured that there are lemons officially in play and there may soon be pictures! http://traveling-lemon.livejournal.com/1162.html

I was forced to overpay for lemons yesterday because the only ones I had ready to go were sent off by post, and I didn't want to delay 221b_hound's tea shipment, but I also wasn't going to skip adding a little bit of artificial citrus to the package. But my Pier One was out of the bags! They had plenty of limes, but I think the green is a little dark for being written on in black. I might have to get some white pens. The hardest part of all this lemon business is the writing on them and keeping as much of the cat hair as possible out of the varnish.

Mycroft is delicious. He's such a complicated blend I initially tried to drink him usweetened, but he is much better with a pinch of sugar.

Ah, here we go - all the Sherlock blends http://www.adagio.com/sherlock/

They have other fandoms pretty well represented as well - OUAT Rumbelle and Gold as [livejournal.com profile] djarum99 so obligingly pointed out - Dr. Who etc. but I cannot seem to locate any direct links.  The Tardis blend is popular, and the top rating goes to - Loki!  http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/most_popular.html?SID=a6f8befc38f87fbaff4374a5bf3ec4f6

ETA - ah, this seems like it may be useful  http://www.adagio.com/signature_blend/  I'm scrolling through the list at top left - a word from the creator... Are you trying to deduce me?

Edited again, sorry, sorry!  For teas in a fannish vein, do look for those created by Cara McGee.  I believe she does the artwork and blends the teas.  Crowley blend

Edited yet again to add...oh lord:
captain james tea kirk
A lotta passion, fruit that is with a splash of coconut and a cherry on the side. Just like Captain Kirk likes his women.

I love Star Trek, really I do.  We are currently watching Voyager and DS9 as we both watched only casually during their initial runs.  I am still resisting the reboot.  *plugs ears to the chorus of 'but Benedict -,' *hums loudly, plugs ears and hums loudly!!*

Edited for the umpteenth time to say - no, none of the OUAT tea is in that list.  I am thoroughly confused as to how I am supposed to find all the wonderful tea.  :-(
