About Flavored Black Tea

Flavored black tea is black tea that has been blended, flavored, or scented with herbs, flowers, spices, or other ingredients. Because black tea is the default tea in most western countries, when people in the U.S. refer to flavored tea without specifying the type of tea, they often are talking about flavored black tea.

Virtually all countries that consume black tea have some traditions of blending or flavoring their tea. Flavored black tea blends are especially popular in Western tea cultures, especially in Great Britain, France, and the U.S.

In Western tea culture, common flavorings for black tea are fruit, especially lemon or beragmot orange (in Earl Grey tea), or rose petals. Among herbs, spearmint or holy basil are frequently blended with black tea. Chai, or spiced tea, a tradition that originated in India, is also usually made out of black tea, and is one of the most common forms of flavored black tea. Vanilla black tea is another common variety.

Because many black teas tend to have a robust, powerful flavor and aroma, they can be combined with strong flavorings which would easily overpower other types of teas. A British favorite is to flavor black tea with black currant, a berry or fruit with a strong, deep flavor. Black tea can also hold its own alongside strong herbs such as lavender. Black tea can also blend well with floral scents, especially the more powerful ones such as rose. Jasmine tea is less frequently made with black teas, but examples do exist.

Aromatic Earl Grey from Ahmad Tea

Aug. 14th, 2020

I'm not sure if this is actually different than plain "Earl Grey." According to the Ahmad US website, "Aromatic Earl Grey has a slightly lower dosage of bergamot when compared to Earl Grey," but the Aromatic Earl Grey is only sold in large containers (454g or 500g) and the largest Earl Grey package is 250g. The UK webs...

What is a Canadian Breakfast tea? A Ceylon-Keemun blend...flavored with maple, of course! In the dry bag, it smells nearly as "mapley" as their "Maple Tea"—a very strongly maple-infused blend I've consumed a lot, and reviewed already. Since I'm a big fan of that flavor, it was a positive review. :-)

Jul. 30th, 2020

Inside the box, the fifty round, tagless teabags are stacked in a sealed Mylar pouch. They're not individually wrapped.

Upon opening the pouch for the first time, the citrus aroma is wonderful and intense. The teabags themselves appear to be sprayed with citrus oil (presumably bergamot, but it smells a bit sweeter t...

Half-litre pot at home, made from a mixture of organic black tea leaves, pieces of organic orange peel and safflower blossom and orange oil.
