Had my first cup of this at Bonefish Grill tonight and it was a delightful end to a good meal. A perfect earl grey. Well balanced flavor and I must say one of the better earl greys our there…and I love most earl greys so that’s saying something. Gonna have to buy a box soon to add to my tea cupboard.
Aged Earl Grey
Earl Grey is one of the most popular teas, yet remains mysteriously beckoning. As the story goes, Charles Earl Grey, a 19th century British Prime Minister, was gifted this scented tea in gratitude for saving the life of a Chinese man. The secret to its lingering aroma is the pear shaped bergamot orange, called the The Fragrant One. Most Earl Greys utilize bergamot oils or flavorings. 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. When brewed, it imparts an exquisite red-orange hue that calls to mind dawn’s finest moments. Balanced and stunning, we’ve recreated this timeless classic.
