Blended Tea

Tea blending describes the process of blending different teas together to produce a final product. The aim of blending teas is to create a well balanced flavour using different origins and characters - this also ensures that variation in quality and from season to season can be, to a certain extent, controlled.

The one golden rule of blending is that every new blending must taste the same as the previously created blend, so a consumer will not be able to detect a difference in flavour from one purchase to the next of the same blended tea.
