Literary Teas

Postby Malia » Tue Feb 19, 2008 9:51 pm

Hi everyone--as some of you may already know, I am a total tea enthusiast. I collect teas the way some people collect shoes or books. At any rate, I've found a website that sells several tea blends that are meant to reflect various literary figures including Jane Austen, Lord Byron and the Brontes, among others. Sadly our Keats does not have his own blend (not *yet* anyway!). If he did, though, what kind of blend do you think would reflect him and his writing? What kind of taste and aroma should it have?

Here's a link to the website's tea page. . .

Awesome idea! Thanks for sharing, Malia. I think Keats would be a black tea with a hint of peach, maybe raspberry. It seems like the tea should have that strong/hint of tart/hint of sweet taste to it. I'm also totally talking out my ass. I love tea but don't really know too much about it. Anyway, a black tea with some sort of pumpkinish flavor (have no idea if that would be gross or not) would kinda fit too. I think about Keats when I drink pumpkin ale in the autumn, so...maybe a similar tea would fit the bill.

But, when I am consumed in the fire,
Give me new Phoenix wings to fly at my desire."
