From Friday Afternoon

How does he stay so young? This blend is as dark and indulgent as the Oscar Wilde character after whom it is named. You will find this tea a complex and full-bodied blend, excellent for multiple steepings! A little wicked Victorian hedonism for the horror literature fan.

Ingredients: Pu-er black tea, green tea, ginger root, blue cornflower

Approximately 65mg of caffeine per cup

Steep at 212° F or 100°C for 3-5 minutes.

From the “Oh, I Forgot I Had That!” files.

Somehow I missed having to read “The Picture of Dorian Gray” in any of my high school or college literature classes. However, Victorian London is my happy literary place, and the puerh/green tea combo does capture the dank backstreets or the East End docks. It’s a very savory profile, even with the ginger and cornflower, but not an unpleasant one. No bergamot—the Gray reference is strictly Oscar Fingal O’Flahertie Wills Wilde.

I feel shame at never having heard his full name. As an English major, no less. SHAAAAAME.

I probably wouldn’t have, either, except the protagonist in a series I like (“An Irish Country Doctor” followed by “An Irish Country” everything imaginable) is named after Wilde.

Oh, I remember reading it and had mixed feelings about it. But for high school leaving exam it was one of the good books I chose.

I can count one hand the assigned books I truly relished (mind you, this was, um, a while back): The Hobbit, To Kill a Mockingbird, and Flowers for Algernon are the ones I remember reading cheerfully and voluntarily. Maybe Great Expectations.

Martin Bednář

Flowers for Algernon! I need to re-read that once!
