I see why lots of people don’t like this tea. I sent some to my friend, and she immediately texted me “it smells heavenly,” only to text me “I feel like I just drank perfume, yuck.”
I always have mixed feelings about earl grey. I have to be in the mood for it. I don’t like this Twinings tea bag straight, but it’s a very convenient and affordable base for my tea latte. With foamed milk and vanilla syrup (or other sweetener), this becomes a “London fog latte,” which can be very soothing. There are better EGs out there, but I like to have half dozen of these on my cupboard for when I suddenly feel like fixing myself an aromatic tea latte.
