Flavored black teas are blends that are flavored with fruits, flowers, and spices. They exhibit a wide range of flavor profiles depending on their ingredients. Different tea origins produce different black tea flavor profiles due to their unique terroir. Did you know that earl grey tea became popular in England, when the British Prime Minister, Charles Grey, received a black tea scented with bergamot oil from a Chinese envoy? Bergamot orange (Citrus bergamia) is a small citrus tree with winter blossoms that grows primarily in Calabria, Italy. The oil of bergamot lends a bright, delicate, floral-tinged citrusy taste that complements the bold and assertive character of the black tea. Flavored black teas offer diverse aromas and a wide variety of flavor profiles.
