    I love Earl Grey tea. With sugar it tastes like my favorite piece of Christmas ribbon style candies. It’s a comfort tea, too. Nothing better on a rainy day! :)

    I’ve been drinking early grey for 10-15 years and it’s my favorite! I drink several cups every morning and take a mug to drink at work. I love the blend with lavender. All brands taste different, and my favorite is Harney & Sons… so good!… but it’s a bit pricey (served in finer hotels). Another less expensive brand is Revolution which blends theirs with blue lavender. Try all kinds and you’ll find your favorite 💜

    I’m just trying a cup of Earl Grey tea for the first time – it tastes like washing-up water! As to the health benefits, didn’t the Germans, in WWII and the communist Chinese use fluoride in the water supply to help dumb-down the oppressed populations and reduce fertility?
