Green and Black


Normally, I have a mug of Early Grey tea when I get up in the morning, plus another before I go to bed at night. My favourite brand is Taylors of Harrogate, which I can't normally get but Twinings isn't so bad (except their new recipe seems to have some kind of mouth-furring property the old one didn't). Anyway, when I was up north last month I bought some more Taylors to bring back with me.

I was a little surprised, however, to discover that they had two types of Early Grey: black and green. OK, well I'm up for experimenting with Early Grey so I bought both.

What's the difference between green Earl Grey and black Earl Grey? Well, this is:

Marx has got the green, Gandhi has the black. You probably figured that out yourself, I guess. Gandhi tastes like Early Grey and Marx tastes like some kind of floral syrup. Marx also has the property of looking like dishwater when milk is added to it.

Oh well, only another 24 of the green to drink and then I'll be rid of it.

I got the mugs as a random reward for speaking at a games conference a few years ago, by the way, I'm not some kind of collector of revolutionaries-branded drinkware.
