  1. Oh, so pretty. Alas, I have developed an intolerance to black tea. :-( Can anyone recommend a tea that is easier on the stomach (not green tea)? I miss my Earl Grey! Thanks!

    1. Rooibos (red south African bush tea) was a favborite among Brits in the colonial days. It's naturally soothing for the stomach and several reputable brands put out earl grey varieties.

  2. I climbed the trail to the tea house at Lake Louise in Alberta and enjoyed my first cup of Earl Grey. Been a fan ever since.

  3. Susan, I switched to decaf Earl Grey for health reasons; although I miss the 'real' stuff, it is a decent substitute. Don't know if this helps, but hope it does. Cheers.

    1. Thank you. I will try the decaf and see if I have the same response. Hope it works. I appreciate the advice! :-)

  4. Tea fan, but prefer a good Irish breakfast tea over Earl Grey.

  5. I love the flavor of Earl Grey but it makes me queasy. I suspect the bergamot oil may be the cause, as other black teas don't bother me.

    1. Have the same problem. Feel quite sure it is the oil because black tea otherwise is not a problem. PA

  7. Served from a sterling tea service is the only way to go.

  8. I'll drink most teas, but given the choice I'd always go for Lapsang Souchong.
