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 Fragrant One. Most Earl Grey's 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.
