As I pay homage to the ordinary things in my life I must not overlook my favorite drink which is Earl Grey tea. I can hardly ever get enough of it. I'm drinking a cup now. I enjoy sampling the different brands and sub-flavors. I drink it with milk and sweetener, like a regular black tea. Many tea buffs would find this a form of bastardization. Purists insist Earl Grey be drunk black.
A particular favorite comes from the TEALUXE company in Boston. One of their blends is called "Creme de la Earl Grey" (#211) and has a creamy, smokey flavor. I order it by the pound in loose leaf form. Would love to hear from any other Earl Grey aficionados.
