About Green and Black Tea Blendsgreen tea and black tea, but do not contain any other ingredients.
Green and black tea blends are uncommon for a variety of reasons. One reason is that green tea is most common in the tea culturen of China, Japan, and Southeast Asia, whereas black tea in most common in the tea culture of India and Western countries. Another barrier to creating these blends is that most black teas taste best when brewed with boiling water and taste bland if the water is not hot enough, whereas many green teas taste best when brewed with water well below boiling, and will taste bitter or harsh if the water is too hot. Our guide on brewing temperature for tea explains more about this issue.
In order to effectively blend green and black teas such that they can be brewed well, both teas must be chosen that perform well when brewed at the same temperature. This can be achieved either by choosing black teas that work well at lower temperatures or green teas that can be brewed with hotter water, or achieving a balance between the two.
