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.

The price is great as well! definitely r...
