Beleive it or not this is my first Earl Grey, well, home made anyway. I had one at the coffee shop recently but this is the first I steeped myself. And I find it lovely. Extremely mellow and relaxing. I beleive its caffinated, which gave me a lot of motivation to get things done around the house (if its not caffinated then my brain was happily tricked). I’m always stunned by how caffine in tea hits me so different then pop or coffee do. At any rate, now I’ve got an entirely new realm of teas to try now that I know I like EG’s. What fun!
