The tried-and-true go-to tea for me. I love the body on this Earl Grey, the other ones that I have come across have either been too drying on the palette or too full. It’s a wonderful medium bodied black tea with just a slight hint of bergamont. As a consequence, I usually drink it sans sugar and cream. Perfectly balanced, and I’m never disappointed with the brew. It’s a good pick me up and always satisfies… sort of like the same way a PB&J will tide you over when you’re sick of grilled cheese.

I’ve seen this one. What is it that makes it ‘aged’? As far as I could tell it’s just Earl Grey. Do they just call it aged because it sounds fancy, or is there actually a reason? I’m trying to figure out if I (who isn’t normally all that Earl Grey interested) might want to try it out.

“Numi’s special, organic Earl Grey is oil-free-using a unique method of aging this Italian bergamot fruit with malty Sonitpur Assam black tea.”
… it’s still somewhat vague to me, but good call on the “Aged” part of the title.

Ah, so it refers to the bergamot they used! That makes sense. I thought it referred to the tea, and then I couldn’t understand why it wasn’t made on pu-ehr.
