The first cup smells light and delicate, while the first taste is really bland. I’m going to leave the tea flower in for just awhile longer. By the way, the flower is very pretty.

The second cup is much darker and the smell is less floral and more tea like. The taste is more vibrant. Having never had earl grey before, I can only say the taste is not like any of the tea I currently own.

The third cup is darker, I can see now that some tea got left behind in the teapot. The color is darker, and the tase richer. Definitely liking this now. I’ll have to try some real earl grey tea.

I’m not a fan of Earl Grey. I think it’s the bergamot flavor — I just don’t like it. When I was in college, I kept trying it every time I went to the dining hall for a while there. I was determined to like it, because that was what Captain Picard drank! Being older and hopefully more sensible now, I no longer make my gustatory choices based on the palates of fictional characters.

Maybe it is just this flowering tea, but the taste was woody, slightly astringent, but also light. I think I could get behind earl grey if most of it tastes that way.
