"Twinings has been my Earl Grey of choice for years now. It's nice to be able to buy it through Vitacost at a better price than at the supermarket... plus the 50 count is sometimes hard to come by at the store."
"The thing I love most about Twinings Earl Grey Tea is the consistency of their excellent flavor. Time and time again, this tea will satisfy my craving and leave me feeling comforted and energized. Thanks Twinings, love love love it!!"
"I have always loved Twinings tea. They are not super expensive, a very good brand, and produce a good strong tea. The Earl Grey gives the added aroma of bergamot oil. It's not bitter, just nice. To get the best taste out of the tea, boil the water, then pour it into a ceramic or glass teapot, or mug. I would rinse off the teapot or mug with a bit of hot water, first, then place the tea bags in. I sometimes would add mint leaves to the pot. The combination of black tea, with bergamot oil and mint is just so relaxing. Do not make tea in the microwave if you want to really enjoy the taste of it. Remember that the water must be boiling hot before you pour it onto the bags, not luke warm nor almost boiling. Also, do not put the tea bags in cold water and then boiling them together; the taste will not be the same."
