One of the most famous, and rightfully distinctive teas in all the world, Earl Grey derives its unique flavor from oil of Bergamot, a Mediterranean citrus fruit like an orange (in case you were wondering). Named after the 2nd Earl Grey, a British prime minister who received this flavored tea as a gift and served it in his ministerial drawing rooms, the tea has been in continuous production since the 1830s.

    Good alternative to coffee if you have had enough coffee or don't like the taste of coffee. Can get it both with and without caffiene. Excellent with a touch of lemon and honey!

    With Tupelo Honey and regular (not 'thick and creamy' - ugh) Half & Half, there's nothing better for that moment of elegant relaxation. Just call me Lady Jane Grey. Yowza!

    Almost everyday I brew a cup! Makes me less wired than Starbucks.

    Good but I like my tea with a little more flavor. I will drink it with a touch of honey.

    I have been a tea drinker for years and years, I have been made fun of for carrying around my "tea!" But I will never give it up! Earl Grey and Lady Grey are my favs, but the catch is, I don't like sweet tea, makes me ill.

    It is a staple in my home and office. It is my wake-me-up drink in the morning. The only one I like better is "Lady Grey" by Twinnings.
