I remember when I used to hate earl grey. Fast forward to now when I love it. The flavor of the bergamot has to be just right, and the quality of black tea to be good enough so that there is that lovely balance. I picked up this box of Aged Earl Grey, Numi, on a whim and it is a very nice earl grey blend, I really enjoy it. The bergamot flavor comes through, tasting very natural, not perfumey or cloying, and the taste of black tea holds its own. If you are using a large-ish sized mug, use two tea bags, in my opinion.

Bio

Although I can be heard to mutter “Dust! Fannings and dust!” when drinking a poor cup of tea, I really don’t think I’m a tea snob. Want to talk about your favorite tisane with jelly beans in it? I’m there. Want to talk about gyokuro and assam? Done. I welcome the chance to discuss all things tea and tea related because I’m that kind of nerd: a tea nerd. Other things I’m passionate about: my family: my husband and daughter and our Chihuahua and new cat; literature, and social justice. I have poor eyesight, a good temperament, an odd sense of humor and a lot of curiosity.
