Good Morning Everyone. I had put off doing this tasting and the review for a few days, but here we go!
I received a bunch of samples from Numi and this is the one I was most excited about. An aged Earl Grey? The ingredients listed Organic, Fair Trade Assam black tea with Bergamot. On opening the packet, no specific aroma jumped out at me. I sniffed the bag and still no good smell.
I brewed the pot according to the directions and steeped it for 3 to 4 minutes. When the water hit the teabag, there was no real smell. Even close up. I even borrowed OU Boy and had him sniff and sip. His question? What is this?
On tasting it, it tasted like all the other teas I have tried from this brand. Like Dirt. OU Boy spit it out. It was truly awful. The other samples I have are an English Breakfast, and 2 Chai Teas. To be perfectly honest, I’m not looking forward to trying those either. I mean how much dirt to you need to drink before you stop trying them?
Would I recommend this tea? Nope. Life is way too short to drink poorly made cups of tea!
Enjoy your day! xx Patricia…who is off to make some real tea.
