Earl Grey/Lady Grey

I have realized person who likes Earl Grey they don't like Lady Grey, who likes Lady Grey they don't like Earl Grey. Is there anyone, who likes both?

My wife an I like both Earl and Lady Grey.
We started drinking Harrod's No. 42 Earl Grey after a trip to the UK and that is still one of our most favorites but hard to get here in the United States. We found that Twinnings Earl Grey was easy to find and was good (but a distant second to Harrod's!). Then some friends of ours who were visiting from England brought some Twinnings Lady Grey for us to try. Lady Grey is harder to find but is carried in at least one of the supermarket chains here.
Now we alternate between the two Twinnings teas but probably drink more Lady Grey.
There are a few other flavored teas that we like from Ashby's especially the Apricot. We purchased an assortment pack in a school fundraiser drive and it seems to be fairly hard to find locally. I've found a few places on the web but they didn't have the apricot.
One more brand to mention is one that another couple in England sent us to try. Taylors of Harrogate has good English Breakfast tea. We haven't had a chance to try other types from them.
Cheers, Scott

I don't like either one. I never drink any tea that has a flavoring added to it. I drink teas from the UK pretty much exclusively. Just finished my supply of Brodies Famous Edinburgh. Really liked it and will get some more.

I believe I saw this tea in a local store today. I will have to get back there and try some. Thanks for the testimonial.

Hi,
Interesting observation... I don't like Lady Grey; to me it smells like that kid's breakfast cereal, Froot Loops. I love Froot Loops! But the "sweet" smell distracts from the base tea flavor, I think. I do love Earl Grey. My mother in law is just the opposite - she loves Lady Grey but doesn't like Earl Grey.
