    Flavoured Ceylon Tea varieties

    An infusion of Ceylon Tea and fruits, herbs and spices indigenous to Sri Lanka, Flavoured Ceylon Tea is found in many forms, flavours, and blends across the world. Since the beginning of tea drinking in the 3rd Century AD, various blends and types of tea had been mixed with herbs, spices and fruits to enhance the flavour and aroma of tea. Keeping true to this age-old tradition Ceylon Tea manufacturers have created a range of tea flavours using different flavouring methods.

    Methods Used to Flavour Ceylon Tea

    While there are several ways of flavouring Ceylon Black Tea and Green Tea, inclusion, natural extracts and natural identical flavours are some of the most common methods used to flavour tea varieties made in Sri Lanka.

    • Inclusions - Dried pieces and fragments of flowers, fruit, herbs or spice are mixed with loose leaf tea to add flavour and aroma to the brew
    • Natural Extracts - Natural extracts, concentrates and essential oil are added to tea leaves using coating methods or infused with tea concentrate to produce naturally flavoured loose leaf tea, tea bags, instant tea, and tea cordials,
    • Natural Identical Flavours - When chemical synthesis is used to obtain flavouring agents from natural ingredients, they are considered as natural identical flavours. While they have the same chemical structure as the natural flavour, they tend to be more stable and less expensive than the natural extracts. Most of the flavoured Ceylon Tea products include natural identical flavours, which due to lack of accurate classification is considered artificial flavouring.
    • Artificial Flavours - Synthetically manufactured flavours which varies from its natural counterparts. It is more intense, less expensive and does not exist in nature. Artificial flavours are hardly used as flavourings in the Ceylon Tea industry.
    • Scented - Tea leaves derive aroma and flavour by being placed at close proximity to strong scents and flavours. This is one of the methods used in producing jasmine tea. Another method is to circulate hot air through flowers and them through loose-leaf tea, allowing the tea to absorb the aroma.
    • Smoke Dried - Smoked tea varieties like Ceylon Souchong are manufactured by drying over Ceylon Cinnamon sticks to add a smooth woody flavour.
