Looking through my cupboard I realised something today, I haven’t reviewed this tea yet!
Here goes: Let me just say that I am an Earl Grey Snob. Capital ‘S’. I take my Earl Grey’s very seriously, which has led to the conclusion that Numi’s Aged Earl Grey is the closest to perfection I will ever get. I’ve tried them all: Twinnings (tastes like cardboard, it kills me when cafe’s try and charge me $5 for a London Fog made with it. Kills. Me.), Tazo (both the loose tea bags—meh—and the old school teabags—really good in London Fogs), Rishi (a bit too potent, but we will get to that in a second), Two Leaves & a Bud (not bad, but not great either, take it over Twinnings in a heartbeat!), Second Cup (orange flavouring?? Really?!)… but I digress.
My sister loves this tea. Loves it. Every time she comes over it is the tea she asks for, I should probably just breakdown and buy her some, but then I’d have to mail it to Halifax, yatta, yatta, yatta. Anyways, back to this tea: it’s alright on it’s own with a dash of sweetener, I usually use raw brown sugar.
In a latte though, holy shamoles! I tend to blend in a little, teensy bit of the Rishi Earl Grey, just to pump up the bergamot a bit. Otherwise, if you are like me and Enjoy a good London Fog then this is your tea! Capital ‘E’.
