About Flavored Green Tea

Flavored green tea is green tea that has been flavored with various ingredients. On RateTea, we list flavored green teas separately from pure green teas, which are listed in their own category.

Because of the distinct qualities of green tea, green teas are typically mixed with different flavorings from those used in black tea. Some flavorings, such as lemon or mint, are common with both types of tea. More recently, green Earl Grey has also become more popular.

Common traditional flavorings for green tea include fruit, toasted rice (genmaicha), flower petals (rose or jasmine), or ginseng.

High-quality flavored green teas typically include flavorings that are well-chosen to blend or harmonize with the characteristics of a carefully chosen base tea. Both Chinese and Japanese-style teas can be used as a base. Because of the tremendous diversity in the different styles of green tea, different teas blend best with different flavorings and ingredients.

When buying loose-leaf flavored green tea, we recommend looking at the different offerings that a company has, and seeing if they all use the same base tea. Companies with lower-quality teas will often use a single base tea and flavor it with different extracts. Companies can also use flavorings to mask lower-quality tea and thus generate a higher profit margin. We recommend seeking out blends where the flavorings are balanced with, rather than overpowering, the base tea.

Here was the last in a series of Revolution teas I've finished from a variety pack, and it was slightly above average, overall. The aromas and flavors are quite similar, across-the-board, from dry bag to cup to wet bag. The aroma is a good bit weaker than the taste, however.

The green teas used seem to be good qua...

I purchased Harney and Son's Organic Jasmine along with their Dragon Jasmine Pearls and their Jasmine (non-organic). I brewed all of them according to Harney and Son's directions (1 tsp tea to 1c water at 175F for 3 min).

Organic Jasmine has the least jasmine aroma and flavor of the three. That's not to say it isn't...

One of the all-time best iced teas I've ever had. Hot summer day Paris 2018... marching around the Louvre we stumbled upon Mariage Freres tea shop in the underground gallery. Unfamiliar with what to choose and overwhelmed by the immense selection, the server asked what flavor profiles I liked. I said, "I like earl grey...

The citrus and peppermint work surprisingly well to create a bright cup. The orange and lemon blend in a way that creates a broad citrus experience without either one dominating. The second cup I made was basically identical to the first, which is impressive. All in all, this is a decent tea!
