Twinings “The Art of Earl Grey” + Giveaway

I’m in Florida and this is the first time I didn’t have a winter. Instead of coats, I wore shorts. Instead snow-covered Central Park, it was sand-covered beach. Instead of being cold all the time, I was warm. It has been glorious. I don’t want to spend another winter in New York City again. (I’m heading back up to NY in April — I’m now a snowbird.)

Usually it’s around 80 degrees which is SO NICE but every once in a while, it gets pretty cold and last week it dipped all the way down to 74 degrees. Guys, don’t worry, I braved through it with the help of some hot tea.

I’m going to share with you something I probably shared with you hundreds of times before — I’m lazy. And when I’m feeling especially lazy, it’s tea bags all the way.


Cue Twinings new Earl Grey blends. There’s the Jasmine Earl Grey (fresh and slightly sweet and light), the Lavender Earl Grey (soothing and floral) , and the Extra Bold Earl Grey (intense and vibrant). Two tea bags for the teapot, boil some hot water and steep for 3 minutes. Done.

Earl Grey is a black tea blend flavored with bergamot, a Mediterranean citrus fruit. Twinings layered on top of that to come up with additional custom blends. The classic Earl Grey was first blended by Richard Twining in 1831 for Prime Minister Charles Grey and if you check any Twinings Earl Grey box, you’ll see it signed by a descendant of Mr. Grey along with one of Twinings’ Master Blenders.

Twinings is giving away to one lucky reader this Prize Pack…

Winner will get all three of the new Earl Grey blends, a tea timer (so useful!), an Art of Earl Grey teapot, and two teacups.
