Actually, I despise Earl Grey. All the flowery bit. Yech. Give me a nice Darjeeling over that any day.

White, two sugar, thanks.

Darjeeling with milk and sugar? Oh dearie dearie me! That just won't do!! ;) While I don't despise Earl Grey, there are a lot of Earl Greys out there that have too much bergamot, but there are also some splendid Earl Greys. That said, my favourite tea is definitely a good first flush Darjeeling (no milk or sugar) although I seem to drink more teas from China these days. That's largely because I have found it easier to order from China than from India. Sorry, I'm a tea nerd as well as a gamer! What's the emoticon for looking shame-faced? There should be on of those here. :)

Just had a cup of my Lifeboats Tea. It's a Kenyan tea, and I quite like it. I'm not a tea snob, per se, but I know what I like.

Knowing what you like is a good thing. My wife knows what she likes: Yorkshire Tea, and none of that 'fancy muck' I drink. She does drink some of the green teas that I have, but prefers a simple blended black tea. It's a running joke in our house that I will offer to make her a cup of tea, and she will ask for 'proper' tea, not leaf tea. Anyway, I'm going to get on with sipping this rather nice milk oolong in front of me. It's a lovely refreshing tea for a hot summer day.

Lifeboat is my favourite!
