I’ve tried quite a lot of brands for earl grey, but Numi is by far the best. It has a sharper and much more articulated flavor.

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.

This is my go-to Earl Grey. Dark, robust, and juuuuust the right amount of bergamot. Today I am off from work, and decided to cook and be productive instead of lazing about. I brewed some of the loose Aged Earl Grey, poured it into my stout little Polish bubble mug, and started cooking cooking. Thanks to this tea, our crockpot is now filled with brown sugar & beer pulled chicken!
My little sister’s favorite tea is earl grey, so I’ve tried a bunch of different kinds and brands and varieties.
Numi’s is probably one of the best (if not the best) tea-bag earl greys that I have ever had.
It’s just super delicious. It has a really nice smell, and I think the real bergamot adds all the difference, taste wise.
I like to add a bit of milk and honey.
This is my first review thing I have no idea what I’m doing.
A reliable bitter tea if I do not have any Lemon juice with me. I usually purchase this from coffee shops I happen to be in.
I definitely finish it all, and like Tavo, I order it in a small cup with two tea bags for extra flavor. I would not purchase for home, however.
I am a big earl grey lover and I didn’t like this at all. Maybe it was the “aged” aspect? While this is clearly a quality product, for me, the bergamot wasn’t sweet or strong enough, and it had an off flavor (again maybe the “aged” flavor). There are plenty of earl greys without a chemical flavor: Rishi, Ahmad, Twinings Organic, Stash Organic (mix of black and green). These are just some I’ve tried and liked. I’m sure there are many more.
