Teabags are a convenient way to make sure you're getting your desired amount of tea into your kettle every time without having to worry about the amount. Though you may think that this is a simple task, there are so many factors involved in teabag wrapping that can impact the flavor of your cup in different ways.

Packaging can impact the flavor of the tea. In general, loose leaf tea tastes better than bagged tea because it allows more air to get to the leaves and enhances the flavor. However, some manufacturers put additives in their bagged tea that can alter its flavor.
One common additive is bergamot oil. Teabags with bergamot oil can have a strong citrus smell and taste. This is because bergamot oil is a flavor enhancer that helps to amplify other flavors in the tea. Other additives that can be found in tea bags include tannins, caffeine, and lemon juice.
If you're looking for a delicious cup of loose leaf tea, try purchasing it without any packaging. Alternatively, if you're using a bag, try buying one without any additives. If you can't find either option, try brewing your tea with less water so that the tea will last longer and there will be less chance of it tasting diluted."
Teabags are a unique packaging choice for tea because they are resealable. This means that, unlike most other packaging, tea bags do not allow air to escape and spoil the flavor of the tea. Teabags also keep tea fresh for a longer period of time due to their resealable design.
