I'll have to get the "Earl" here for Easter!

Our daughter and grand daughter are coming for Easter. Great delight. Daughter only drinks Earl Grey tea ( and we both dislike it) so I'll have to add him to my shopping list next week along with a few little treats for BGD( beloved grand daughter!) She's 6 years old and so much fun.

Earl comes to my house almost daily. He tells me old tales from the days of yor.

I was gift shopping over the weekend. I had bought a pretty mug and wanted a special tea to send with it. I could not find Earl any where. I stopped at a novelty store and they had a little cafe in the back. There in full view was a dispenser full of Earl Grey tea packets! Can you believe that!
I enjoyed my tea and they told me that I could have as many packets of EG tea as I needed. They have a lot of teas, coffees, and cocoas for sale so I only needed a couple packets of EG tea. Thank you again.

If you ever want to send someone a special teabag, just for fun or love, here's a link to a nice way to send them.

What's the wife of an Earl called? She'd have to be something more than "Mrs Earl Grey"

Oh that's it " Countess". They'll have to rename that brand " Countess Earl Grey" it sounds so much more elegant I'm sure more people would buy it!
