For this cup of tea, I removed the tea from the tea bag and placed it in the lid of the tasting cup. I wanted to smell the tea and see the details of the cornflowers in this Earl Grey tea blend. Many of the French tea companies that I like have this kind of detail. You can see many of the ingredients in fine detail.
When prepared, the taste and smell of the green tea and bergamot do not overwhelm each other which is my concern with flavored green teas. There is a bit of a bitter taste to the tea but it is typical of green teas.
