Tea Blends, Mixed Tea
After the various stages of the manufacturing process, teas are either packed and marketed as "specialty" teas (also referred to as "single source" or "garden" teas) or they are blended with teas from other gardens or other producing areas or countries. This is because teas from single estates or plantations can, like wines, vary from year to year in flavor and quality, due to annual and seasonal variations in weather patterns and, sometimes, in production processes. This means that, for example, a 1996 Broken Orange Pekoe from Diyagama Estate in Sri Lanka may be different than the same grade from the same garden in 1997. Some connoisseurs prefer to only buy single source teas and enjoy these subtle variations from year to year. Other tea drinkers like to know that each time they buy a particular tea —for example, Darjeeling Second Flush, Ceylon BOR, English Breakfast— the brew will taste exactly the same. By blending together a number of different teas, packaging companies and retailers can guarantee the flavor and quality of that tea from year to year.
Tea blending is a work of art. Tea tasters sample hundreds of teas each day to find the necessary components for a particular blend and each blend may contain 7-10 different teas. Bulk blending to a given recipe is carried out in large drums to ensure even mixing before the contents are packaged into tea bags, packages, or caddies.
