Exploring the Flavours of Tea


Tea is a delightful beverage, enjoyed by millions of people around the world. But have you ever stopped to consider that there are many different types of tea, each with its own unique flavour profile? From robust black teas to light and floral oolong varieties, there’s something for everyone. Let’s explore some of the delicious flavours available in different types of tea.



Black Tea

Black tea is one of the oldest and most popular types of tea in the world. It has a full-bodied flavour that can range from sweet and malty to bold and earthy depending on how it was processed. Black teas are often blended with other flavours like bergamot (in Earl Grey) or spices like ginger (in Chai). In general, black teas are best served with milk or sugar to balance out their bold flavour.


Green Tea

Green tea is made from unfermented leaves and is known for its delicate taste and aroma. Green teas have a milder flavour than black teas, with notes ranging from vegetal to grassy to slightly sweet. Some green teas are blended with fruits or flowers for added complexity. Unlike black tea, green tea typically does not require milk or sugar as it is already quite mellow in flavour.


Oolong Tea

Oolong tea falls somewhere between green and black teas in terms of both flavour and caffeine content. Oolong has a smooth, floral taste that can range from earthy to sweet depending on how it was processed. The flavour profile of oolong also varies widely based on the terroir (soil composition) where it was grown so you may find more subtle variations in taste between batches. Oolong teas can be enjoyed without any additions as they generally have enough complexity on their own.




No matter what type of tea you prefer, there’s something out there for everyone! Whether you’re looking for a robust cup of black tea or something lighter like oolong or green tea, exploring the different flavours available can be fun—and delicious!
