    The Dorian Grey Tea blend from English Tea Store is based on the floral notes of a strong Earl Grey with a touch of caramel.

    This blend is dedicated to the tale of Dorian Gray, as told in Oscar Wilde's 1891 novel 'The Picture of Dorian Gray'. In the story, the young Dorian wishes that a portrait, painted of himself, would age instead of his actual body, allowing him to retain the spirit and beauty of his youth - Mr. Gray was evidently quite vain! The tragedy for Dorian is that no matter how hard he tries, beauty is ethereal and will always fade. In the end, he dies, aged and disfigured.

    When experimenting with a new blend, the thought was that there was no better way to capture the fleeting qualities of beauty than through a tea. Tea is itself a beautiful product to behold with so much time and effort going into creating each individual leaf. Once boiling water is poured over them, the leaves whither and releases their golden essence never to produce a good strong cup again. (Unless of course you're talking green teas, some of which can be brewed up to 5 times!) This blend is based on the floral notes of a good strong Earl Grey that is sweetened further with a touch of caramel, both flavors serving to hint at the sweet hold of youth. To further enhance this vision of a tea that reflects the waning qualities of temporal beauty, we blended in dried apple pieces, calendula petals, and delicate elderblossoms - products of nature that lend a character of tragic allure.

      I'm not a fan of Earl Grey, it is too strong and bitter for me. But I really like this tea.
