Welcome to Tasty Tea Blends

What makes our tea different from what you would traditionally find is it's high quality blending. The tea is carefully grown, handpicked, and blended using natural ingredients from Europe. This superior, state-of-the-art blending process is what makes all the difference. Our blenders have both the chemistry and technological expertise required to blend outstanding tea.

The quality of tea is determined by the number of stems, leaves, dust, and fannings in the tea. Ideally, you want more leaves and less dust and stems. Fannings are broken pieces of tea leaves that have a coarse texture. They are the grade of tea used in most commercial tea bags.

Types of Tea

There are 8 Main Types of Tea provided by Tasty Tea Blends and over 90 blends to choose from.

Black Tea

All tea comes from the plant Camellia Sinensis. Black tea requires fresh leaves to be withered, and then rolled, broken or cut or provoke oxidation, causing the color to change from green to brown.

Benefits - Studies suggest the following benefits may be attributed to drinking black tea:

  • Boost the immune system
  • Protects against heart disease.

Green Tea

To prevent freshly picked green tea leaves from oxidizing and turning brown, heat is applied by pan-firing or steaming the leaves and then rolled to develop the flavor and dried. Green teas range from golden amber to intense lime green. Flavors can be mellow and herbal, or more astringent and vegetal.
