DO NOT BUY THIS TEA. I ran out of Earl Grey at work and decided to pick up something during my weekly grocery shopping. OMG this thing sucks. Not only is the bergamot weak, there is this nasty bitter smokey burnt flavor that makes me want to chuck the entire can. >_<

I also wouldn't recommend the Fortnum & Mason one above. No icky flavor, but just weak overall.

This Twinings one is better than the F&M.

Best of the bunch by far, but I want to believe there is better out there. I think I need to start ordering online. I've bought other brands from local stores and had mediocre results. Am I just expecting something unrealistic or something? (Yes, this is a random generic stock pic from some online store. I don't have a can of this handy right now.)

I put in some random CDs and rediscovered good music, like Ningyou by Amano Tsukiko. ♥♥

Accidentally discovered cracktastic Engrish at a site selling bottled Hawaii Water (TM?) in Japan. It's so awful it's kinda awesome. My favorite is how they spell Oahu, as in the island, as "Owafu." Did they just machine translate everything? The testimonials are pretty fun to read, too.
