Among the most famous flavoured black teas are Earl Grey tea and Chai tea.

  • Earl Grey tea is a refreshing Chinese tea, blended with the citrus flavour of bergamot oil. Although traditionally a flavoured black tea, Earl Grey can also now be found as green and oolong blends.
  • Chai tea is an Indian black tea, mixed with native spices such as cardamom, cinnamon and pepper.

Because black tea is so versatile, new flavour combinations are constantly evolving, under the watchful eye (and refined tastebuds) of the expert tea taster. And, if you want to judge the tea taster's skill for yourself, take a look at some of our other flavoured black teas. Particular favourites include Bourbon VanillaIrish MaltMarzipan Tea and Date Tea.

The art of tea flavouring requires a great deal of skill. The most exquisite flavoured green teas are those that achieve the perfect balance of ingredients: enough flavour to complement the tea, without overpowering its own characteristic taste.

Japanese Sencha, with its large, whole leaves, is particularly suited to flavouring - as evidenced by our Lotus BlossomMorning Dew and Sencha Earl Grey flavoured green teas.

And why not try our Jasmine Xian Yu? The judges at the Great Taste Awards did, and they loved it.
