Yes. I bought Bigelow Earl Grey las time, and I will look for Twinings from now on. The Bigelow has been cloudy.
Indeed. Even more sad, the more expensive varieties are even worse.

I'm drinking some now.

Plus one. Except for the abominable mug, man.
Just looked at Earl Grey - Twinnings on Amazon site; having never heard of this before. Once more, I am confused. You mentioned it was your all time favorite. But I find under the EGT - our classic blend; black tea; and a Taylors of Harrogate EG...no Twinnings listed on this one.
And what is Twinnings? Thanks
Twinnings is available at my local Walmart and other grocery outlets.
Oh! Thank you very much! Can you enlighten me on the difference or meaning of both Earl Grey and Twinnings? Never heard of these, although my wife said she's heard of Ear Grey - she thinks it is an English tea. But Twinnings? Thanks.
Twinnings is a brand name, they offer many tea blends. Earl Grey is a style/blend. Here is the Wiki
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Earl Grey tea is a tea blend which has been flavoured with the addition of oil of bergamot.[1] Traditionally, "Earl Grey" was made from black teas, but tea companies have since begun to offer Earl Grey in other varieties as well, such as green or oolong.[2]

Ahh. Was just new to me and that accompanying word "Twinnings" had me thinking it was a specific blend. Thank you "berry" much!

Eight O'Clock Central Highlands; Syphon brewed

Meh. This is certainly not a bad cup (it doesn't have the off-tastes that have seemed to plague the estimable "original" in recent years), but it seems remarkably uninspired. Retailing at about $9-11 per 11 oz bag, there are a lot more coffees at the same — or better — price point from which to choose, like Gevalia or Sam's Choice (Walmart). IMO, with so much good coffee on the market, 8 O'Clock would've done better to rehabilitate — and stand proudly upon — it's namesake blend rather than develop the brand into an umbrella for a whole range of me-too blends.
