From Numi Organic Tea

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.

Although I am not a fan of earl grey or bergamot, I found this tea to be very pleasant. The malty Assam base was complemented nicely by the natural bergamot pieces. The bergamot flavoring was perfectly balanced and citrusy, not overpowering, not understated. Of course, it helped that the tea was a bold and strong Assam.

I am down to the last bag of this… so sad.

In my search for the perfect Earl Grey, I would have to say that this is by far the best. Since the tea is aged with bergamot the flavour is so much more complex than teas that use merely the oil or flavourings. This is the perfect tea for a London Fog and I will even go so far as to bring my own teabag to cafes, order an extra hot vanilla steamer, then make my own London Fog with the Numi teabag. Sneaky? Yes, but worth it for the fullness of the Numi Earl Grey.

Iced earl grey with some splenda to sweeten it up is a happy way to escape from the heat. Got this cuppa from my local coffee joint and really like it. For some reason I never thought to drink ice tea before I had it here but now I’m a huge fan.

Iced EG is one of, if not, my favorite iced tea. I almost always drink it plain. Since I found my Chai, I’ve been drinking it Iced & it is so refreshing!

I saw this at Whole Foods the other day. It was tempting.

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.

Angrboda

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.

Writing this tasting note on my phone while sitting at the bar of a Cheesecake Factory restaurant.

Perhaps I did not steep this long enough but it is coming across as pretty weak to me. I’ll have to do the resteep for a longer time. But even in this state I can clearly taste the bergamot in it, just not the Assam so much. A bit disappointing.

Not bad, Numi! I’d been down on the bags I’ve tried lately (can you tell I have a bit sampler? I got it for the holidays)… and I suspect that’s partially because I’ve had so much Really Good Tea lately.

This one, though, is not half bad! It’s a bright color, nearly red, and the taste is actually quite good. I don’t have a favorite Earl Grey, so I don’t have something to compare this too, but it’s not one I would pass up!

This is my wake up cup, every morning. In my opinion this is one of the best EG’s in a bag, it neither coats my mouth with an oily film, nor does it dry my palette.

After drinking too many “bland” Earl Greys (you know, the ones without a distinct Bergamot flavour) I found this Earl Grey by Numi to be quite a refreshing taste. The Bergamot taste is quite distinct, as it should be. The aftertaste is quite good as well, as others have remarked there is no aftereffect that leaves your mouth dry.

hmm, I’m curious as I really don’t like Earl Grey. I’m wondering if it’s because I’ve never tasted one of good quality. I’ve only had the icky artificial aroma stuff I think.

Seriously- when you have to spend the whole day craming for finals, some light flowery/fruity tea is just not going to cut it. The richness and powerfull punch this tea gives is something i was in serious need of today. I was able to steep it twice and it was just as good the second time around. It is usually hard for this tea to disapoint me.

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.
