    I like the big boxes of twinings earl grey from costco. I have many nice chinese and japanese teas but I like the convenience of the humble twinings bag

    Drinking too much Earl Grey will cause harmful reactions. Look it up.
    Avoid.

      I didn't look it up, but it seems to me that most of the harmful reactions are from Anon when I post too often about drinking Earl Grey. Understandable, I suppose. *sips*

        No, "champagne of teas" is the phrase people use in English. I wouldn't be surprised if it's called the queen of teas in another language, though.

          Sorry, no, the "champagne of teas" thing was something invented about 10 years ago and it just took off, it is and always will be the queen of teas

            Yeah, both are just memes and shouldn't be taken too seriously. Harney & Sons uses the phrase "Queen of Teas" but "champagne of teas" seems to be more widespread.

    Makes me vomit if I drink it on an empty stomach, but that might be because I do 7 — 11 cups at a time.
