I have been looking forward to this tea since I first stumbled across it. I mean, who wouldn’t love a tea called Dorian Grey? I finally caved and bought Apollo’s ‘best of Earl Grey’ sampler and this was the first tea I tried.

I was a little worried at first. Of the 5 teas in the sampler, this had the lightest aroma. In fact, it almost smelled a little stale. When hot water is poured on it, I get a burst of wonderful scent and then that murkiness overtakes again.

I am pleased to say that the taste is far better than the scent would have you believe. This is a mellow, smooth, and creamy Earl Grey. There is a soft caramel aftertaste but it’s just the right amount; no overpowering sweetness or gourmand flavour. I’m a huge Earl Grey fan and this one is now among my favourites. I can’t wait to try the others!

Tasting note: I had this with 1% milk. No sugar.

I saw you in the midst of adding this to your cupboard. I stared. “There is a tea. Called Dorian Grey.” It had to be an earl grey, naturally, but my interest is peaked, and now I’m looking at all the different Dorian Grey teas on Steepster, and thinking about which one I should try to get my hands on. Two of them seem to be of similar blends, but one looks to be… completely different. Hmmm.

It looks like Apollo and Metro might source theirs from the same place. The descriptions are basically identical. It would be interesting to try them both to confirm, though.

AJ

I noticed! I think I will just add Apollo’s to my shopping list for now.

Gemma

I do like Apollo. I’ve ordered twice from them and they shipped within 48hrs via Fed Ex. The shipping costs are really reasonable and their customer service has been great. I’ve really been enjoying the quality of their teas, too. Definitely worth a try!

AJ

I will definitely have to check it out, then. Thank you.

This is an excellent combination of flavors, it has just the perfect hint of bergamot mixed in with it. Being more complex than most earl greys that I’m used to, I find that I really prefer to drink this while I’m sitting and thinking about things, the flavors really help me contemplate

Delicious! I’ve tried harney and son’s which was also very good, but I can’t taste a thing about this tea I don’t like. It has a great taste and smell.

Dorian Grey is perfect with a little sweetener and lemon. I love this tea for my morning pick me up cup of tea. Flavorful and mild.

Forward, very present aroma. Tasty! I’ve always wanted an earl gray with a hearty presence of bergamot, subdued lavendar, and well blended tea. This is the first to satisfy

My favorite from ApolloTea so far. A little sweet (floral, not fruity), a little spicy (peppery, not bitter), very nice all in all. Can easily brew a strong cup to handle cream or drink without for a totally different profile. Really lovely and versatile tea.
