Teas can be flavored a number of ways, through the inclusion of ingredients - such as flowers, nuts, or berries, the addition of oils or extracts - such as citrus or vanilla, or by using artificial flavors. After being added to a base tea, these ingredients are blended together in a number of ways, either in large batches in a blending machine or in small batches by hand. Some teas are flavored through their processes, such as Lapsang Souchong, which is smoked over pine fires during drying.
At The Tea Smith, we pride ourselves in blending many of our teas by hand, carefully calculating our blends, and selecting only the best teas and the best ingredients to be used in our collection.
Early Grey is one of the most well-known tea blends in the world. It's signature flavor is owed to the addition of bergamot, a small citrus that is something between an orange and a lemon. Every Earl Grey blend is unique to the maker; you'll find ours has a touch of jasmine in it! Try all the varieties of Earl Grey and discover a new favorite.
