I won't kick any black tea out of my cabinet. I love them all.

We drink mostly English breakfast tea, but usually have at least one pot of Earl Grey each day. I like Irish breakfast tea when I want more "kick". We usually buy Twinnings Earl Grey, though Lyons is equally good. We usually get President's Choice English breakfast tea.

I bought an organic Earl Grey at the health food store once, but it was far too perfumey for my taste. I don't like any of the black teas with synthetic flavourings. (I don't like coffee with synthetic flavouring either).

Its the bergamot Tax that is why I put lapsang with it. A thread like this on a UK site would devolve into a vitriolic slanging match re the correct method of brewing and which bone china cup is the best and if you mention tea bags you would be flamed at the stake, what a pleasure it is to be among civilised tea imbibers.

I know it's the bergamot. The organic one just had far too much. I'll stick to Twinnings and Lyons for my Earl Grey. Isn't there a bit of bergamot in Lady Grey as well? I find Lady Grey drinkable, but too be too wimpy.

That sounds like a good mix. I usually get the lapsang as a loose tea, so can add to anything. I was just thinkiing, I should have used the Lapsang for my Shiitake tea.

I have just about every implement for tea making in my possession. They all make fantastic cups/pots of tea. I also have my favorites in the form of tea bags, for portability. I am also known to use my 16 ounce coffee mug for a double tea at work.

Between my love for coffee and tea, I always have something I like on hand.

I have certain cups that are coffee only and some that are tea only. And lets not even get started on the ones that are for the herbal teas and not the black teas! Heeheehee! Infusers and balls and presses oh my!
