What I believe to be the bergamot in this tea is a very strong flavor and scent. It is almost overwhelming to the extent I may not drink it. Although I did get it down sip by sip it was a different experience being that it was a less expensive white tea. A mistake made by buying two bergamot flavored teas including a black tea called Earl Grey Creme Black Tea by Teavana.
My point being I guess I should have done a sample taste by going one ingredient at a time to assess the bergamot. It is good, but so-so to me. As a last thought; never oversteep this tea! OMG!
