What up y’all. Your Duke is back. Boy, the Cayman Islands are beautiful this time of year. Actually they’re beautiful every time of year; I feel like rubbing it in. But really, I was here. I’ll be updating regularly until further notice. It’s good to see Tea_Pain can actually write without constant help. Maybe he can get a job as a tea reviewer for a newspaper or something if he keeps it up. He deserves a cookie.
Anyway, we’re about the tea here (or /t/), so let’s get to it. Frankly, I’ve missed tea since the only thing they have in the Cayman’s is coffee or English tea (see: Bear Grylls favorite tea). Time to brew up a pot of some Twinings Earl Grey.It's kinda funny that we've reviewed only one real Earl Grey. Those diarrhea flowers don't count. Up to this point I've only partially lived up to the DukeOEarl name because frankly Da Hong Pao is better. Well what are you gonna do? Earl Grey is great though, especially when you need a small pick up and some citrus flavor.
Twinings Earl Grey is malty and mellow. The bermagot flavor isn't intense like some Earl Grey teas. It is a great complementing flavor instead of a mouth assault like the hairspray taste of the death flowers. It is a great cup of tea when you want to calm down from a few weeks of constant sex. Talkin like four or five times a day. Or when you want to quit hating the world so much. After that cup of /t/ I feel less like hating on Rory McIlroy for looking like a five-year-old or for hating on the US economy for taking a large bit out of the world-wide debt poop sandwich. For reals. It's like someone let Tea_Pain play Riskopoly with the US economy. That's a slow and painful death my friends.
Hmm well, I got to go. The MILF next door hasn't had any company since I left and she's sitting out on her porch. Have a cup of the Earl Grey. You won't be disappoint.
