I know, Earl Grey is a love it or hate it tea and everyone has a different Earl Grey that they like. I’m no different and, honestly, my favorite EG to date is Twinings Lady Gray. Hardly posh! And I do like the vanilla/creme and garden Earl Greys that have been popping up recently. That said, I could barely sip this Earl Grey-it was like drinking shampoo. It’s SO fragrant and overwhelming and the perfume just overtakes the tea flavor. This is one of the very few teas I have not been able to drink-I tried diluting it, I tried milk… I think I’m going to stick it in a dish and pretend it’s potpourri. A rare miss for me from Davids.
