The various tea types are all derived from a common source, but there is a remarkable amount of variation within the tea family. Different types of tea are the result of different harvest and processing techniques. The location, elevation, and rainfall of a particular region also play an important role in creating different tea variations.

The end result of all the variables involved in making tea is that there is a wide range of specialty teas available. Specialty teas come in all the different categories; green, black, oolong, etc., and they are usually flavored in unusual ways. They are a nice addition to a tea stock as they add variety and flavors you wouldn't normally find.

Specialty Tea Flavors

Some of the common flavorings for specialty teas include vanilla, cinnamon, honey, and lemon. Each has its own characteristics and unique appeal. Vanilla is a refreshing burst of flavor and lemon and honey are very soothing. Specialty teas are great because you can find one to fit the particular mood you happen to be in.

For the widest selection and lowest prices on specialty teas, try an online vendor. Gourmet tea sites generally have wider selection and lower prices than traditional shops. You'll be able to find all the interesting specialty flavors you want without paying exorbitant prices.
