Relogging. Rabs knew which Earl Grey B&N SBUX Cafes use so I am transferring my tealog to the correct tea. This tealog occurred the afternoon before the previous tealog.

Alicia suggested I try making a London Fog with A&D’s Earl Grey a few days ago. Some googling revealed what this was and also that it was a popular drink at Starbucks. Yesterday I happened to be browsing the Barnes & Noble with my friend Abbi and decided to try one there when we decided we needed beverages to browse with.

I think this was the Harney & Sons tea pyramid tea bag that was used in it. I got it with 2% milk and it was quite hot but drinkable after I let it sit for an appropriate amount of time so it could steep. I left the tea bag in the entire time and I could tell the tea was strong and well-caffeinated. I could taste the earl grey (good strong black and good citrus) and the vanilla and it was creamy. A nice alternative to a coffee drink while at the B&N.

Rabs’ comment, also transferred from the incorrect tea.

Rabs I’ve only worked at 2 B&N cafes so the selection could be different at yours, but we had the Imperial EG and not the Supreme. If you’re looking for extra tea tins and are a frequent customer at a B&N cafe, then you could ask the cafe manager to have your name & phone # held so that when they empty a tea tin they could call you to pick it up (instead of throwing it out). :D

I’m also glad that you enjoyed your first London Fog :)

Thanks, Rabs. I tried some googling but I couldn’t readily find out which one B&N SBUX Cafes carried. I knew it was sachets in tins so I looked on the Harney & Sons website and narrowed it from that.

You’re welcome — glad that I could be of help! :) If anyone has B&N cafe or old school Borders cafe questions, then I’m a font of knowledge. Starbucks I only worked at for 6 months, so I just know the basics. ;)

Chrine, B & N uses extremely hot water for tea! I had some Harney and Sons green tea and I only steeped if for about 1 minute because the water was so hot!!

Bio

I’m 33 years old, studying pharmacy, and have a surly cat named Bin. I love tea, coffee, beer, wine, and most things food and beverage related. I also love music, movies, reading, writing, and learning new things.

I’ve drank tea all my life but about five to six years ago, my close friend Spautz got into tea and got me more into tea. I drink black teas and tisanes/herbals most. Since receiving a variable temperature kettle from my parents for Xmas this past year, I’ve been drinking more greens, oolongs, and whites. I’m very very new to puerh. That is, I’ve had only one.
