    impressions:
    -irish breakfast seems similar to english breakfast, but distinuishable. tasty.
    -earl grey is much more bergamot-y than my usual discount brand, which seems to have a stronger "tea" favour. I don't think I like it as much as the discount one, actually!
    -lady grey - very tasty! I think I like it the best of the 3 so far. pretty mild tasting but good.

    haven't tried their english breakfast yet. 3 cups of tea in a day is enough for me.
    Would you recommend trying the box of assorted flavours then? I've only ever tried Twinnings Jasmine green tea. It was yummy.

    Ooh and I tried the chamomile tea. Found it lovely.

    It was pretty good! I don't know if I like it "more enough" to be worth paying so much more per bag, but it's nice for a change/treat. It's also a nice way to try different flavours without buying a box of everything.

    Ha yes that's why I'm tempted to try this one. It's so expensive although Shoppers sometimes has it on sale. So I'll buy it then.

    As an update, I liked the second cups of both lady and regular earl grey WAY better than the first time! Not sure why, maybe increased familiarity or just a different mood. Still haven't tried the english breakfast. I think I'll buy Twinings again though (occasionally for a treat, otherwise I'll bankrupt myself), even though it is super expensive.
