About Green and Black Tea Blends

This category is for blended teas which include both green 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.

This product is named after Vancouver's Waterfront Hotel, which commissioned Murchie's to produce it for tea service there starting in the 1990s. Buoyed by the success Murchie's has had with their somewhat similar, jasmine-flavored #10 Blend, over many decades of production in general, and in my mouth in particular, I...

This was the old-style Tazo "Om" that you could get in Starbucks before Tazo revamped it's brand into 2 lines with different package designs. Om is supposed to be a green and black blend and thus it seems to be neither when you steep it. Tasted very good though - so what the heck! Not sure if you can get this formul...

Om from Tazo Tea

Mar. 14th, 2011

A bit of a muddled aroma, but it works. There are some fruity tones, like a muscatel Darjeeling but with a more tangy flavor. Upon drinking more of the cup, I can notice some grassy qualities, and a brightness that I associate with high-grown black teas. Flavor is fairly sour, and only slightly bitter. There's a hi...
