Flavored tea is a great way to enjoy a hot or cold cup of tea! Since there are plenty of varieties to satisfy almost everyone’s taste, there is surely a cup out there waiting for you.
The best way to obtain true tea flavor along with your favorite flavored variety, there are two important tips I want to share.
First, be sure that you are NOT brewing from a tea bag, but instead are brewing from loose leaves in an infuser. Second, is make sure that the “infused” flavors are all natural and not artificial!
Most online tea merchants, like adagio.com, have actual pieces of fruit, nuts, spices, etc. blended in with the flavored loose leaf tea. So you know that when steeped, you’ll get nothing but pure natural aroma and taste!
There are two main types of flavored tea… green and black
Flavored green tea comes in a decent variety of flavors and consist of mostly fruits and spices. The leaves are steeped in the normal way, and can be either of Japanese or Chinese origin.
I believe that flavored green tea, like iced green tea, is a good way for newcomers to start and adapt their taste buds to the misunderstood “vegetal” green tea taste. Slowly but surely this may lead to years of plain hot green tea drinking enjoyment!
Flavored black tea is probably the most common type of tea that is infused with natural flavors, and offers a nice selection of exotic and non exotic types.
This ranges anywhere from “apple” to “vanilla”, and is used with Ceylon black tea, which by itself has a sort of citrus taste to begin with.

In addition to green and black flavored teas, there are also flavored white and oolong teas as well.
Although not as common, these flavored varieties are enjoyed just as much.
Flavored white tea, may include a hint of jasmine flowers, blueberry, peach, and pear. Flavored oolong tea is usually infused with just jasmine flowers, but I did come across a ginseng flavored variety too.
