I may not be the best person to review this tea as I don’t read piles and piles of books like some people do. I do, however, appreciate the literary connection with this tea. The tea at hand is The Picture of Earl Grey™ from Novel Teas which features their WILDE’S ROSY EARL GREY Blend.
To be honest I had to do a double take with this one. I really and truly thought I was drinking a heavily flavored ROSE Earl Grey Black Tea but I was mistaken. It seems The Picture of Earl Grey™ from Novel Teas is actually a combination of organic jasmine green tea and a rose-blended bergamot radiate hedonism and reflect your eternal beauty as you sip…of so the product description on the website says.
I will say the rose petals were very large, very floral in both aroma and taste, and were quite colorful! The rose was the primary flavor in this tea…hands-down! Then I could pick out a fairly solid Earl Grey likeness to the tastes on the tongue.
The Picture of Earl Grey™ from Novel Teas was inspired by Irish author Oscar Wilde’s ‘The Picture of Dorian Gray and goes perfectly with THE PICTURE OF EARL GREY TIN that is also sold by Novel Teas.
This is a highly flavored twist on an Earl and I have to say I enjoyed it! I can’t wait for another cuppa
Here’s the scoop!
