Earl Grey Fans Include Celebrities

We recently learned that Oprah Winfrey drinks tea to curb her appetite. But when focused on taste, we’ve found that one of her tea favorites is Earl Grey. According to the New York Post’s web site, Oprah “enjoys Earl Grey or mint tea twice a day.” She’s not alone.

Earl Grey is one of the world’s most popular tea blends. So it’s no wonder that Lost World actress Jennifer O’dell starts her days with Earl Grey or Chai teas.

According to, another celebrity, singer/songwriter Sheryl Crow, “orders hot tea like an English gentlewoman“ and “has been known to sip Earl Grey tea with milk.”

    Thanks, Bigelow! I “came to tea” via Constant Comment, when I was a teenager. One of my favorite tea recipes, by the way, is the Constant Comment Tea Cake. I make it all the time.
