aged earl grey

price level: $$$$
This was a really good earl grey for a bagged tea. The bergamot wasn’t too overwhelming.
This is distinctly different from other Earl Grey teas on the market. I love Earl Grey, and my initial reaction to this tea was one of disgust. However, I later realized that the problem wasn't the tea itself, but my preparation of it. I was preparing it like a normal cup of Earl Grey, and that ruined it. Once I tried it on its own, I was able to appreciate its uniqueness. So, if you love Earl Grey, give this a go, but be prepared to change up your routine.
I usually really dislike earl grey teas but this one I found to be slightly more tolerable and interesting because of the addition of the citrus note, will definitely recommend people who enjoys earl grey to give this a try, it's definitely an interesting twist on a classic flavor profile
I bought a bag of this in loose-leaf form. One of the reasons why I like Numi teas is that they are one of the more accessible brands that offer organic and fair trade teas. This is a very nice Earl Grey with a fresh, robust bergamot flavor and smell.
